      Season 2 – Kingdom

      2008 Drama List
      83% 6 Reviews Tomatometer 94% 50+ Ratings Audience Score Looks can be deceiving. Peter Kingdom seems to have everything -- he's a man of some standing in the seaside town of Market Shipborough, he dresses well and has all the trappings of success. Why, then, does he wander along the beach and stare out to sea for hours at a time? Despite Peter's thriving legal practice, he must deal with his dysfunctional family (which includes his unstable sister) and his grief over his missing half brother and law partner, Simon.

      Previous Samantha Highfill Entertainment Weekly Kingdom wraps its strongest season to date. I don't know how this show does it, but in its continued exploration of these characters, their demons, and their relationships, it only gets better. Dec 7, 2018 Full Review David Wiegand San Francisco Chronicle [Byron] Belasco does a superb job of creating credible, compelling characters for his talented cast to run with. 3/4 Dec 5, 2017 Full Review Dan Buffa KSDK News (St. Louis) Balasco used his show about fighting to inform the masses about important aspects of our society that need fixing. Nov 10, 2020 Full Review Melalin Mahavongtrakul Bangkok Post ... we're in for something thrilling from this new character. It's a shame that it will probably take us another year (or longer) before we get to find out what the show's creators have in store for us. Mar 20, 2020 Full Review Rob Owen Pittsburgh Post-Gazette With four hours of new series I'm trying to watch already taking up space on my DVR, odds are I'll let "Kingdom" pass me by. Oct 14, 2015 Full Review Mark A. Perigard Boston Herald Thanks to stunt coordinator Keith Campbell, Kingdom's fight choreography continues to thrill. The drama, already renewed for a third season, has an ear for honest humor, the way people bust on each other. B- Oct 14, 2015 Full Review Next

      Previous Audience Member Great series that keeps on getting better Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Season 2 didn't see any drop off in interesting story lines. Every character is so we'll written with various layers of complexities well beyond the primal essence. The relationships are riveting, and the trainng and fight scenes truly capture the nuance of the sport. Unbelievable show!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Awesome show, another great Direct TV original!! This show and a couple other originals are the main reason I pay for direct tv. If you have not seen this show then you should (don't have to though) start with episode 1 of season 1 and spend your weekend locked in through season 2. You will be ready for season 3 as soon as the credits roll on "no sharp objects". Get story line and perfecting performances from the entire cast, you forget they are actors. They make you feel like you are right there with them and it's like these guys - and girls - are professional fighters that are allowing you a glimpse into their life. Great job everyone I hope all of you come back for season 3. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member The second season, while still excellent, is much slower than the first season. The pace of storytelling slowed down significantly this season which made it drag a bit. I guess when they upped the episodes to 20 they didn't add more story which is always the risk of adding more episodes. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Next Post a review
