What happens when network television airs a serialized drama loosely based on the biblical tale of the rise of King David?  You get Kings, which debuted with a lot of fanfare on NBC this spring, but after low ratings was shuffled off to Saturday nights to die.  It’s not surprising because the high-concept show did start off  slowly and with too much emphasis on religious symbolism, but it hit its stride soon enough and became an entertaining and engrossing series, and I think season two would have been even better.
