I don't envy the uphill battle that this show faces. It is a midseason replacement on a network and it is stuck in the dreaded "family hour" of 8 PM on Sunday nights. This is a slowly paced, but aesthetically beautiful and well-written heavy drama that is filled with war, violence and corruption. It's the kind of fare you'd expect to see on a cable network, or at 10 PM. Instead, Sunday at 8 PM it sits. Leading off a night filled with Celebrity Apprentice. It's a pairing that makes no sense, and the only thing the two series have in common is a boardroom. So I'm trying to brace myself in case this show gets cancelled after the first season, because after watching the first four episodes I'm totally hooked. I worry that people won't get through the sluggish first hour, and will tune out and the vision of this show won't ever get realized. Because this show becomes more engaging as it goes along. Truly a series that gets better as the plots start twisting and turning. Getting people to tune into this modern day telling of David and Goliath is a feat that even David might not have been able to overcome. Sometimes the giant wins, and for Kings the fickle viewing audience and a tough time slot are its worst enemy.
