KINGDOM: SEASONS 1 & 2 REVIEWED

“Kingdom” is a show that requires a lot of its audience. It requires a working knowledge of MMA and training culture. It requires accepting Frank Grillo as a lead. Hell, it demands following a slightly erratic airing schedule on Audience. When it was announced that the currently airing third season would be its last, I wasn’t surprised. Like most insular dramas, it was a bit much for a casual audience to follow. So, what about the fans?

Well, between Jamie Kennedy showing up and Bruce Davison having a subtle cameo…the show reaches deep for actors. Not all of the choices work, but I admire the attempt at world building. It’s just that everything returns to the family drama that feels cliche. At points, I expect James Van Der Beek to show up screaming that he doesn’t want Frank Grillo’s life. Nick Jonas continues a long road to proving that he’s a serious actor. I strongly admire his efforts.

It’s just that in the new Golden Age of TV, a good show isn’t good enough. The aspirations to do something new aspire B grade shows to get lost among the sharp rocks of casual viewing indifference. That being said, there could’ve been a good movie. It’s just at TV length, it’s a bit much.
