The world as we know it is clearly at an end.

Convenient that a few miles from fake New York, there's a barren landscape perfect for fighting wars. What if there wasn't? Man, that would suck. You'd have to have standoffs with tanks in the suburbs.

It's the story of King David, I'll try to watch it, because I'm hoping the keep a Samuel type character about. Which means that eventually they'll have to do a seance scene and that might be fun.

Or they may completely dispense with Samuel and then it will just be a stupid soap opera.

Also what kind of big tough Kingdom has a pretty wee butterfly as its symbol?

One that's ruled by a Monarch.   :P



If the show was THAT then I'd watch

Yeah I loved it, and they included Samuel so I was happy about that. I thought Abner was dead on too.

Fingers crossed enough people liked it. :)

I liked it a lot.  Both Swedgin from Deadwood and Kareem Said from Oz?  Excellent.

I can no longer hear the line "The king approaches" without mentally transposing it into Bill's (or was it Kevin's?) goofy voice. See what you've done to me, MST3K/RiffTrax??

I loved the first episode, it was well acted, well written and beautifully shot. I'm only hoping that the rest of the series is just as interesting.

I am curious to see how the show will portray the friendship of Jack (Jonathan) and David, since there are several...ahem....interpretations to their relationship.

I think it was rather sign posted with the little exchange between Silas and Jack about the latter's "skirt chasing".

I don't think that they'll make David gay, perhaps that's what Macalay Culkin's character is for.

Ugh, David kissed a girl. Jack didn't. Do NOT start slash fiction for this already.

Oh I don't think that either, but they certainly aren't shying away from that interpretation of Johnathan at least.

Interestingly the David-Johnathan relationship has been the subject of slash type speculation way before (like centuries) the term even existed :)

I'll tell you one thing, if I were David and had seen the butterflies landing on me after the king had made it clear they were his own special thing, I'd have run like mad instead of just standing there grinning!

I'm thinking that it was possibly just a vision that Silas was having, since Samuel had already told him that God was choosing another.

I kept waiting for someone to say, "Oh boy, here he goes with the butterfly story again." I'd question how long I could watch a show with zero humor in it, but I'm still watching 24, so that answers that question.

Bring on the hot, gay Biblical allusions!

So I heard there was a secret chord that David played and it pleased the lord... does that factor into this show at all?
