    It's neither wildly innovative nor sidesplittingly funny, but it has a warm, cozy group vibe and no flagrant casting mishaps.
  2. A touch of "Friends" with "Odd Couple" undertones.

    "Four Kings" is a strange thing. The first episode of the new NBC comedy reeks. But there are moments in the next two episodes that make it seem as if it has the potential to be a male version of "Sex and the City," minus the naughty stuff HBO could show that NBC can't.

    OK, ''Four Kings" isn't the worst of its type, in that some of the jokes hit their mark.

    [A] generic dud.
  6. 25
    "Kings" is a self-conscious attempt to reel in the 20- to 30-something male demographic that TV is so desperate to capture. But, unfortunately, it isn't edgy, especially funny or believable.

    It was a pilot and I found myself interested in the characters. I think that the most you can expect from 30 minutes, so I think it is off to a great start. The relationships between the characters seem like there will interesting stories in future episodes. It had the same wholesome "Friends" vibe before they became "Friends" and everyone cared more about how they looked than how the show felt. I wish them good luck and hope they make it. Expand

    The show gets better with each airing. I think it is unfortunate that it is after Will and Grace that is failing. It is also unfortunate that it is on opposite of Dancing With The Stars. Keep it on and try another time slot. Expand

    It may improve with time, but for now,the show was generic. Jokes are forced into the dialogue as if there were a quota to meet. Jokes should materialize at their own rate with more emphasis on storyline. Expand

    I don't know how this could have been worse. Could only stand the first 14 minutes - major SuckSazoid. Poor writing, bad acting - Stinks - only silly girl teenyboppers in lust with one of the actors could think this is any good.. Expand
