Tut: Season 1 (2015)



Critic Consensus: Tut sacrifices historical accuracy for the sake of schmaltzy melodrama, wasting a talented cast on a biopic that misunderstands its subject's timeless appeal.

The perception going in was that Tut would be a laughable feast. My truth going out is that it plays out much better than anticipated.

Meanwhile, the soap keeps generating suds, while Kingsley plays it solemn and serious.

The good special effects, interiors and locations help keep our heads in the past, as do the actors' committed performances. In a better world, destiny, the gods and opportunity would have given the actors a better way to use their talent.

Tut has all of the makings for a powerful re-entry into scripted programming for Spike TV, unfortunately the series falls short, giving it more of a soap opera feel, than the epic saga that I'd hoped for.

Three nights' worth of Tut became a slog, some of it through copious amounts of spurting blood.
