We’ve seen all of Kingdom season 2 now and we’re ready to talk about it. We also have a Patreon question about our thoughts on Legion and some discussion about A.ron’s experience with The Last of Us 2.
A couple of Netflix shows today. We’ve seen all there is to see of Dark and we’re ready to talk about it leading up to the release of the third season this Saturday. Also, we gush about the first half of season 2 of the ancient-Korean period-action-political-drama-zombie series, Kingdom.
Jim and A.Ron give their thoughts and opinions on the entire first season of Netflix’s Korean medieval zombie series, Kingdom, as well as the first two episodes of Black Earth Rising. Kingdom is much needed breath of fresh air in the mouldy zombie genre, with lush locations and sets, impressive costuming, excellent plotting and performances, and genuinely creepy and terrifying monsters. The boys both were very into the premise and promise of Black Earth Rising, but are worried two episodes in from the series penchant in getting distracted with Jason Bourne types of intrigue and assassinations as well as the complex and confusing personal lives of the main characters. Whether the excellent performances and important questions the show has to offer can overcome the clunky writing and execution remains to be seen.
