- Political intrigue
- Grandiose mythology. Apparently there's a king (hence the title) but it's modern day, possibly America, so we're looking at some big epic type of thing I'm thinking.
- All sorts of pretty cinematography.

Ok I'm pretty much watching just because of him. Anyone else getting in on this with me? 2 hr series premiere is tonight at 8pm (I think- don't remember exactly, DVR is set). Come on, lets watch it and make fun of it and talk about cool McShane is. However since I'm... uh, entertaining... tonight, I may not have the time or energy to watch until tomorrow.
