My heart is vexed within me. I know not what to do or whence to do it. Therefore, I chose this – here and now. Not just Facebook (where my voice is only accessible by my few friends), not Twitter (where I am limited to my few followers), but here on the P&P theology blog, accessible to the whole world, especially those in the west of the New World.
My voice is that which seeks liberation from an evil, but the knife has already been laid to the flesh.
What is this evil you ask?
It is the cancellation of the wonderful.
How can “wonderful” be canceled, Michael? Is it not created by God?
Ah, to the contrary. The contrary cometh not by way of your assumption of creation, but by the will of a vessel to His glory. By one action the glory of the Lord hath been shielded and its light, seemingly, denied.
What could this be, Michael? Why speaketh thou thusly of such pain and travail? Whither cometh your woe? Speak or I shall be drained of hope myself!
Ah, ye should be drained of hope. NBC hath canceled its show Kings without giving it proper chance for success. It wast the greatest show to arise out of the west of thousands upon thousands. It wast a tale that told of King David, father to our Lord. It taught a story in such a way that hath not been seen since Sir Gibson’s Passion. It should be hailed as a triumph among both the heathen and the brethren alike. But, alas, it has been canceled.
(The madman is crying, “The Kings is dead, and we have killed him.)
What shouldest we do Michael, I did not know? I never even heard of that about which you speaketh.
Nay, I have no answer. Mourning and beseeching to our Lord that NBC might take a second, yea, third look and have faith that our community will raise up and take notice.
Executive P&P Translation: NBC’s Kings has been canceled. This is very unfortunate as it represented a wonderful representation of the story of King David in a modernized form. I have watched every episode with great excitement. Rarely do we see such great quality on all fronts (story, acting, production, etc.) that has a good message. Kings represented what many of us would love to see coming from Hollywood. Kings was what so many people have prayed for. Of course it was not perfect, but it was one of the best (if not the best) new show in the last few years and its message was superb. What a terrible waste that this is ending after its first season.
I don’t know how, but I say “Save the Kings”!
If you love Kings, spread the word. If you have not seen it, watch the back episodes and get caught up. Read 1 and 2 Samuel along with it!
