I’m wondering: Anyone out there psyched about the return of Kings to prime-time?

This low-rated but highly original show was a bomb for NBC (which is really saying something, given NBC’s ratings woes), yet it also attracted a pretty sizable cult following. Kings returned last week to a Saturday-night time period with its first new episodes since April. Tonight’s episode is directed by Akiva Goldsman, who’s written everything from the script for A Beautiful Mind to episodes of Fringe.

I hear that part of Kings‘ following is among viewers who like to track the parallels the series has with Old Testament characters and stories. Me, I keep checking it out because I like the acting.

How about you?
