Re: Kings  
Am I the only who watched it last week and was wholly unimpressed? It seems like everyone else who watched it loved it.

Not me. I thought the lead young dude was as milquetoast as they come, the "love story" between him and the King's daughter was ludicrous, came out of nowhere, as predictable as B coming after A, and the two had no chemistry. In fact, the entire show was so blindingly predictable I could dictate pretty much everything that happened before it happened. Ian McShane, as always, was AWESOME! Stan Sebastian (I think that's his name) was much better on this than he was on Gossip Girl and I did think he was great, if wasted in an entirely -- wait for it! -- predictable role. Brilliant premise, yes, but nothing was made of it. At all.

Seriously, was I the only one who watched it and felt this way?

I haven't watched it yet, but I'll let you know!

I was so bored when I watched it that I stopped halfway through. It just...did nothing for me.

Oh, thank goodness I'm not the only one!!!! People I normally agree with so much are loving this to bits and I'm like ... why?

I loved it... but I love shows that modern retellings of old stories and/or take place in an alternate world. And technically, everything did happen before it happened, because it's from the Bible. I'm not really watching it to be surprised, I'm more interested in how they update the story.

But that's just me. :P

(That being said, I do think the romance was *too* predictable and is so far pretty boring. I hope they do something with it.)

I can understand not watching it to be surprised, but I just find it so boring. Clearly, I'm in the minority of those who have watched it. I guess I just don't get it.

Me too. I tuned in to about twenty minutes and despite seeing several people I really like, it couldn't keep me interested. Boo.

I did watch the whole thing; I kept hoping there would be some building thing that would leave an AHHH! ending, but no dice. Eh, I should have stopped after twenty minutes.
