One second...

Anyone watch Kings tonight?

It just premiered on NBC tonight. Judging from all the previews I saw, I thought it was going to suck, but I actually enjoyed it a whole lot. It's sort of a modern day telling of the story of David and stuff. So far so good.

Watch this

Evidently not. =)

I've never even heard of this. Story of David...is this a Bible thing?

i agree. that could've been a little less "HEY! HE'S GONNA BE KING SOME DAY! GET IT?!"

radiostaticstar

no, it takes place in a fictional monarchy, lemons.

what's the name of the actor who played the king's brother-in-law (the one who wanted to keep the war going)? i swear he's in everything

lemonalle

ohh, like all those modern updates of shakespeare plays

bhoomika

sort of, except it wasn't awkward because modern people shouldn't be talking in iambic pentameter.

all the sets were pretty sweet

yeah! dylan baker! he's not even listed under the imdb info for the show yet. he's one of those actors that can fill pretty much any role.

shirtflirt

good to hear you enjoyed.

i worked with one of the editors from the show.
to date, he's the best editor i've met/worked with.

i gotta check it out.

that's awesome, shirt.

one of the co-creators was a writer/producer for Heroes. maybe that's where all their talent went.

shirtflirt

there was a lotta action going on when i was at universal for a stint.
kings, battlestar galactica, death race was across the hall, and our show which i hear they're gonna do a series on, warehouse 13, oh yeah, and corsica? i think that's the name, but that's another sci fi looking thingy.

maybe you mean Caprica? it's the battlestar spin-off series coming out next year (though the pilot is coming to dvd in april)

tracerbullet

judging by the imdb description, warehouse 13 sounds slightly x-files-ish

shirtflirt

very much so. with a touch of wtf

CallMeSteven

oh, sorry shirt, im about to release warehouse 14, so you're show is a little outdated now.

marblecargirl

Hey, Brian, not to derail this blog, but are you watching Dollhouse?

yes! aubrey! i think every episode has been better than the previous one, which is good, because it started off a bit slow. this week's looks really good.

marblecargirl

i agree! i'm really liking it so far! i love victor! lol @ boners

shirtflirt

oh snaps sci fi's gonna be pissed steve!

and yeah, caprica. not corsica. corsica's a car!!

No account?
