The shape of 'Kings' to come

sysadmin 2.0's picture

This Sunday, a TV show will be premiering that looks to be ESPECIALLY cut out for the Republibot Crew to cover.

That show is Kings (Sunday, March 15th, 8pm on NBC)

For those of you who don't know, Kings is a series set in amodern day parallel universe that purports to be based on the life of King David of Israel. In other words, what if the US were split into kingdoms and David Ben Jesse was right in the middle of it?

TV REVIEWS: Macross Zero: “The Stars Of The Surface” (Episode 2, 2003)

Republibot 3.0's picture

We begin with a clever recap of the previous episode, a montage with a voice over of the elder from the island village telling the story of the Water Humans meeting the Bird Humans for the first time, and the creation of Rooy Kanu, the first “modern” human. The Montage/Recap flows seamlessly in to the episode itself, and we see that the villagers are hiding in a cave listening fearfully to the story while Sara prays to the gods to protect them, Roy continues to fight the Anti-UN forces in the air over the island, reeking much havoc, and Shin runs to the lake to save Mao.

TV Review: Macross Zero: “The Ocean, The Wind, and…” (Episode 1, 2002)

Republibot 3.0's picture

“Macross” is probably the best Science Fiction TV Series of the eighties. If I’m honest, that’s not saying a lot, since there wasn’t much to compare it to. Certainly “Manimal” didn’t offer much competition, nor did “The Powers of Matthew Starr.” Yeah, there was Star Trek: The Next Generation in the final third of the decade, but that series didn’t exactly hit the ground running as Wil Wheaton’s occasional reminiscences over on TV Squad point out.
