Cast & Crew
Balasco has created a fully realized world of believable characters that like to express themselves with their fists. The resulting drama makes for compelling viewing... when you don't have to duck your eyes for cover.
We have solid setups here for tales of love, redemption, friendship and the same championship dreams that made Rocky an American icon.
Like Friday Night Lights before it -- which, I should mention, none of the Kingdom writers worked on -- Kingdom puts its stories on an equal playing field, rolling all of its plots together in a concentrated effort to keep episodes humming along.
This is an incredibly violent and an incredibly powerful show about men who find it difficult to talk to one another but have no problem raising their voices - and their fists.
Kingdom isn't the next great television show about sports. It's just a really great television show.
Featuring a strong cast, a unique setting, and an alternately energetic and reflective tone, the series has a lot going for it and could easily grow into a surprise hit for DirecTV, if viewers can find it.
[It] quickly establishes itself as a solid drama. There are plenty of boxing-movie-type cliches in creator Byron Balasco's series, but DirecTV's latest original still delivers a surprisingly potent punch.
Welcome to "The Sopranos" that takes place in a gym...look, I championed this series as much as any living soul in America.
Creator Byron Balasco's sense of pacing seems off, as if he's trying to figure out the direction as he goes along.
The gritty, dire, drug-addicting side stories mute and dull the intended impact. Makes Ray Donovan seem like Shakespeare.
Using its Venice, California, locations to terrifically seedy effect, with gamy and graphic content on par with premium cable, this multigenerational story impresses with its blunt-force depiction of an urban warrior culture.
Audience Reviews for Kingdom: Season 1
Apr 23, 2021Awesome season. Very believable. Good drama without getting weepy. A great take on the MMA world and the toll it takes on fighter's lives.
Feb 15, 2021It was mesmerizing in every way. The acting, the content, the Jonathon Tucker role was so well played. What an actor. I was surprised at Nick Jonas as well. At first I thought ''Don't quit your day job'' but he played a difficult role quite well. I hated to see it end and was so sad with the loss of the Jonas role.
Feb 02, 2021Incredible show packed with acting talent. An absolute hidden gem. Should've won tonnes of awards.
Jan 23, 2021Fantastic! This show is an emotional rollercoaster and season 3 ends with a huge gut punch. You can't help but love this family. Amazing cast, especially Jonathan Tucker! Watch it!!

Nov 08, 2020I was sucked into this show right from the start. Jay Kulina is everything. Jonathon gives amazing life to this character. The writing is supreme. Nothing is done just because, it all has a reason. Frank and Nick are amazing.
Oct 28, 2020This is by far the very best thing i have ever watched. Do yourself a favour and get over to Netflix to see what all the fuss is about! You wont regret it, i promise. Once youve watched, get over to facebook and join our fan page. Kingdomites, were a great bunch and very welcoming. Your welcome.
