Critic Reviews for Of Kings and Prophets: Season 1

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (8)

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.

Top Critic

Of Kings and Prophets takes this dramatic event and superimposes a tiresome modern motivation.

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.

March 9, 2016 | Full Review…

It does have a few things going for it, including high production values and intriguing political and religious themes.
