So "Kings" came back tonight, for the start of its Summer Burn-Off Theatre run(*), with a fairly strong episode. Yes, there was a lot of the weaker younger characters, but there was more than enough of McShane, Eamonn Walker, Dylan Baker, Wes Studi and Susanna Thompson to compensate.
(*) And I'll believe they'll air all the remaining episodes when they get done airing them. If the ratings for this are as low as I assume they're going to be, I wouldn't be at all surprised to see "Kings" replaced in a week or two by a weekly "I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!" recap show.
But as this is a dead show walking, I can't find it in me to do much more than acknowledge the presence of each episode and move on. Talk about it as much as you like, if you're still watching at this point.
