Kings (NBC 2009) - The Complete Series
Starring: Ian McShane as King Silas Benjamin, Christopher Egan as Capt. David Shepherd, Sebastian Stan as Prince Jack Benjamin, Susanna Thompson as Queen Rose Benjamin, Allison Miller as Princess Michelle Benjamin, Eamonn Walker as Rev. Ephram Samuels
Summary: A modern day, alternate-reality drama about a hero who rises to become the King of his nation, based on the biblical story of King David.
Trigger warnings: contemporary combat scenes, drug use, suicide of minor character (please let me know if I am missing any)
Why you should watch Kings: Though cancelled after only one season (fuck you, NBC), Kings remains one of the most quality shows I have ever seen. Of particular note is Sebastian Stan’s character, Jack Benjamin, the crown prince of Gilboa that keeps himself closeted to please his father (his father explains that to be a successful king, Jack cannot be ‘what God made him’). He cries a lot, and it’s beautiful. I really cannot say enough good things about this show.
