Storyline

King Silas Benjamin came to power in a mythical battle against the rival neighbor republic of Gath, capitalizing brilliantly and ruthlessly on his near-godly image. Farm-boy David Shepherd performs as well, saving Silas's crown prince in another epic battle, but is too noble and naive to aspire personal benefit rather then devoutly serve king and country. Nevertheless, after Silas decides to abuse David's legend, the hero is drawn into palace intrigues culminating into coup plans against Silas. Written by KGF Vissers

29 March 2009 | by shehab-khashabaSee all my reviews

i have seen this show after I saw an interview of the star on the daily show with john steward. this show has so many dimensions.different characters has shown depth and the attention to details is impeccable. the acting of the main character Christopher Egan brings both the emotional side of a war veteran who rose in the ranks unexpectedly when he does a heroic act.Ian McShane who plays a complex king who plays with many interests but has the good of his people at his heart all the time.

the subliminal messages in the show are both subtle and clear.the director has a way of making you hold your breath at every moment of the show.the writing of this show gives you a feel of the real inner workings of a made up kingdom.

though i have only seen three episodes of this show,i will keep watching this show,it is one of the rare shows that had me hooked from the start.lets hope NBC doesn't turn this into a mess like most of their good shows.
