Did anyone happen to catch the first episode of Kings? I really enjoyed it. The story seemed a bit strained, but it didn't take away from the show. The acting was good (in particular Ian McShane).
The story revolves around a modern day monarchy led by Ian's character and a young soldier who gets caught up in the political intrigue. Seems promising.
