While Kings is now long-canceled, the shitty fly-by-night DVD is out.  And, as much as it pains me to say it, you really shouldn’t buy it.  No, I’m not kidding.  I’d say anything to support them, but NBC continues its late series of fuckups here.  Seriously, it’s sixty bucks and the special features are like four deleted scenes and one commentary.  One.  Kings was really the sort of show that was supposed to blossom on DVD – they created a lot of content for the website and there are all sorts of tantalizing hints to the greater world in the show bible in the commentary (like, what’s the deal with Austeria?), but right now Hulu actually has more extra content than the DVD set.  I’m sad to say that this set is an unabashed disaster, and totally not worth watching.

On the other hand, now I can watch it whenever I want.  Now you know where I’ve been all week.

That cost $60? I had it pegged as $20. Good goddamn man, and they only had the one commentary track too. 😦

You’d think so, right? I’m glad I got it as a gift but I feel bad for the purchaser.
