Of Kings and Prophets Episode 2 Review

Well, I suppose the best you can say is that at least this last episode of Of Kings and Prophets was better than the first one!  And to be honest, it really is better than “Offerings of Blood.”  The Biblical accuracy is improved somewhat (though they still make one egregious error near the end of the episode).  There is also less gratuitous sex (though there’s still one terribly-gratuitous sex scene which pretty much destroys the character).  Unfortunately, that’s not quite enough to redeem the series, considering all the problems.

Of Kings and Prophets Episode 1 Review

When I first saw the promos for Of Kings and Prophets (ABC’s new miniseries that airs immediately after Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), I was actually excited.  After all, the account of David is one of the most exciting sections of the Bible—and practically begs for an adaptation which takes some inspiration from Game of Thrones.  The Biblical account is replete with courtly intrigue, romance, military conquest, action… all the elements that make for a good historical movie or TV series.  And all of those elements are in fact present in the Of Kings and Prophets series premiere.
