Critic Consensus: Of Kings and Prophets tries to add a Game of Thrones-inspired spin to the Old Testament, but ends up an aimless muddle.

News & Interviews for Of Kings and Prophets: Season 1
It's more like a descendant of Spartacus: Blood and Sand, made just modest and melodramatic enough to irk both faith-based audiences and those coming to it in search of a salacious, sanguinary fix.
Kings and Prophets for the most part is deadly serious in both its approach and intent. It sounds strange to say its time has passed.
A good-looking TV production - filmed in South Africa - but with minimal appeal to either the sword-and-sandal crowd or the faith-based one.
Let's put it this way: If the newly released Game of Thrones trailer won't tide you over until the HBO drama's return, Of Kings and Prophets would make a decent substitute, if only it didn't take itself so seriously.
It does have a few things going for it, including high production values and intriguing political and religious themes.
