I rarely watch broadcast network shows, and it has been such a long time ago that I’ve watched any procedural show, but I decided to give a shot because of its creators. I have to say that it was really good. Considering the race this year, this might be a total nonstarter, but there might be a slight chance that this shows up at something (guest acting and main title sequence maybe?).September 28, 2019 at 6:31 pm #1203111030
I liked the start too. IMO, we have to wait more episodes to have a more brand opinion if the show is or isn’t gonna received nominations at Awards, but one that I really can see receiving a nod is on the WGA for Television: New Series.September 28, 2019 at 7:36 pm #1203111084
Liked the pilot, but I was expecting more. But is the Kings and I trust them. Katja Herbers was good and the serie have potential to be great.

Science has defeated religion twice so far and the ending of the second episode was literally religion is opiates! Wouldn’t surprise me if everyone on the show ended the season as total atheists! Or maybe it’s like there are no miracles and no demons but a God is a maybeOctober 11, 2019 at 9:21 am #1203132224
Watched the Pilot last night….its not bad but I wouldn’t go out of my way to watch it. My grade: C+ But Katja Herbers is great as usual. Underrated gem of an actress on Westworld and Manhunt: Unabomber.October 11, 2019 at 10:12 am #1203132313
The show is getting better each week, this week’s episode was great. I love how they manage to balance a satirical/evil tone. Also, Michael Emerson does such an amazing job with being creepy.October 11, 2019 at 11:12 am #1203132408
The same thing again! Something people believe might be religious is just people playing games or misunderstanding. The show is about how people may be religious but they are just wrong and using religion over science when Science is always the answerOctober 11, 2019 at 1:56 pm #1203132548
I can’t believe how much better and different this episode was than the previous two episodes. I haven’t watched a great episode like this on broadcast tv for years. I wish this episode was the pilot episode then it would definitely generate more buzz and acclaim. If it was 2000s then this show would have so many Emmys.October 11, 2019 at 4:04 pm #1203132624
This show is definitely the most interesting offering broadcast TV has offered this fall, and it continues to grow more assured with every episode. I have full trust and faith in the Kings to deliver something completely unique, which is better than the countless procedurals that have been offered this year.October 20, 2019 at 1:30 pm #1203145039
The show brings something new with each episode and I’m loving it. That VR scenes were amazing. I wonder whether this show can dethrone This Is Us from AFI’s yearly list as the broadcast network drama representative. If this happens, it will secure a major Emmy nomination.October 20, 2019 at 5:15 pm #1203145211
This past week’s episode was brutal and dark and actually legitimately scary. I agree that they keep changing things up week to week, and that makes it the most unique show on broadcast TV right now even after just a few episodes. I’m really liking it.October 22, 2019 at 4:29 pm #1203148211October 23, 2019 at 6:48 pm #1203149878
I finally caught up on the first four episodes and I’m really enjoying the show. The Kings know how to work in, around, and beyond the confines of the procedural form, and while they haven’t yet done so here, the show has a lot of potential. It is very impressive how well established David and Kristen are as characters in so few episodes. Their solo scenes at the end of the fourth episode were really devastating.
I’m glad the show is only doing 13 episodes a year. One of the few flaws of The Good Wife was sustaining each season arc over 22 or 24 episodes. Plus, it allows them to do this and The Good Fight wholeheartedly without dividing their attention between them.

Episode 9 was quite possible the beat episode of the season so far on what is, IMO, the smartest show on network television. Eerily timely writing, great acting, incredible directing and design in this episode, and music that was spot on. When everything comes together so seamlessly, as it did in episode 9, television is at its finest. The Kings have a very special way of creating breathtaking moments on television.
As a prayer group is about to convene and the priest with a past sex addiction is seduced by the churches attorney all while a young man, having been manipulated into doing evil is about to preform a mass shooting at the same place of worship, while Blest Are They is playing during the montage. Nothing in this show is an accident. The lowly ones, they shall inherit the earth and gunfire.
This episode asks a lot of questions. The ending was surprising, but what is more surprising is that there is this kind of programming in network television. the these characters encounter evil and their vulnerabilities are riveting to watch. Who knew that there are people there interested in provoking emotions and making people think?
Mike Colter & the King’s deserve to receive some serious awards recognition.December 13, 2019 at 6:55 am #1203234713
Showrunner Robert King:
There is a puzzle approach with the whole season. It’s a combination of the numbers and other things you can find within the episode. It’s a fairly complicated puzzle. There is a pattern, and it won’t come together until the last episode. It’s not something you can figure out along the way, even though you should be keeping track.
