Kings: The New King, Part 2 (series finale) - open thread

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 26th 2009 2:00PM
And so Kings has ended its run on NBC. This was one of the "quality" dramas that some people got excited about when it debuted months ago ... and then it crashed and NBC shoved it over to Saturday nights. But if Twitter is any indication, it still has its fans. What did you think of last night's episode?

Sila is a great character. McShane is a troubled Solomon with a Shakespearean dialogue and delivery. What a pity NBC delivers once more by prioritizing drek rather than quality. As noted above -- 1st Life and now Kings.

Please rethink the cancellation of Kings!! It's an intense, well acted story of good versus evil. Even if you put it back on Saturdays I would be happy!

This series deserves more time to build a following and believe me we are out there!

Thank you NBC. You gave me Kings.

True, ultimately you decided that it wasn't viable as a continuing franchise for you, and that's too bad, but you gave it a shot, let them do it right and as a result I got a season of a show that provided me with a lot of entertainment.

The story ended with an ellipsis and not a period, but that's just fine. The story I got was great, and endings don't always need neat bows.

Heartbroken now that this show has been cancelled. Best parts I'll miss: the two Rosencrantz and Guildenstern characters, Thomasina, what the M Culkin character could have turned into, and the hell Jack has been sentenced to. Please NBC, bring it back!

i was in Texas when the "finale"aired.. i couldn't wait to get home to watch .. and wouldn't you know it my space was too short.. but thnaks be to God for the internet link.. I felt that God would speack to King Silas by lightning or thunder..it's was the best.. and the part that the Rev. Ephraim played was unbelieveable.. when he asked to let me see the wrong righted whew!! and to appear before David & Michelle and then the King !! excellent writers .. please someone do HBO whatever but we need this type of show.. it get you to thinking.it's so old testament and now..If you look real close to whats happening in the middle east also.. God is still speaking to His chosen ones..but we must listen.. we have turned a deaf ear to Him. again i hope and pray that its renewed..Dirty Sexy Money is another great show it was so old times and new.. someone said"there's nothin new under the sun".. i'm 68 years old what about our group having some value when it comes to veiwing? I've tired of One and a half men etc.. we get sick of always seeing someone trying to screw someone...enough said WE WANT KINGS,WE WANT KINGS,WE WANT KINGS

This show would have been a lot better-suited for HBO/Showtime, or even a cable channel like AMC. Had it been there instead of NBC, it probably would have been lauded as "edgy" and "trend-setting" and "high-quality". Except it was on NBC and didn't get mind-blowing ratings, so it got shunted over to Saturday nights to flicker out.

This episode (well, the whole 2-part finale) was pretty good. Unfortunately, in my opinion, the show took a major dip in quality in the middle of its' run. The first and last 2-3 episodes were good/great, but the filler in-between was badly written and badly acted (well, except for McShane). I think this is another area where the show would have benefited from being on a different network... less need for flashy, lame filler content and/or less need for a 13-ep series order.

It's a shame when great shows, with an adult plot is canceled. Oh lets have more reality shows...So sad...

NBC; get smart and reconsider this great show. Do the right marketing and you have a winner that can't fail!!
