It’s only Tuesday. Bummer. I spent a full 12% of my weekend traveling to and from, standing in line for, and watching Watchmen, so I could use another break. In the spirit of giving you (and myself) something to look forward to, let’s talk about the upcoming weekend’s entertainment.
If you’ve been paying attention while fast-forwarding through the commercial breaks of SNL, you may have noticed ads for a new NBC series starring Ian McShane, called Kings. It premieres this Sunday and I’m going to lay it on the line: I think it looks awesome.
Seriously. What the hell is going on? Ian McShane is king of America? Guy with Matt-Damon-teeth saves his son’s life? Ian McShane has built something or other? I have no idea! The only thing I know about this show is that the production films in NY and they freaked people out a while back by driving a tank through Grand Army Plaza. (Read that again: a tank in Grand Army Plaza! Don’t you want to see why that would be necessary?)
Two hour premiere Sunday. Watch it and we’ll discuss next week. I’m hoping it lives up to the great casting and production design.
