Stephen Fry as the title role of Kingdom is wonderful. I don't find the other characters irritating at all. They're charming. They have great potential for growth which is why I watch this sort of show. I use to watch shows like "The Golden Girls" not because it was fantastic, in fact it was kind of predictable, but the actors performed that show with grace and a level of excellence seldom seen. Same for "Kingdom". Excellent. Stephen Fry is just a delight to watch do anything. He's real. Maybe he does one very good version of himself but have you ever seen a Brad Pitt movie? Same guy over and over and his movies make millions. Give me Stephen Fry any day. Give me Kingdom.
