  1. What can I tell you about "Four Kings" that you won't already know? It premieres tonight at 8:30 on NBC. By 8:46, or thereabouts, you will understand everything.

    [A] generic dud.
  3. NBC has reestablished another Thursday night tradition: sticking another unfunny, almost unwatchable sitcom at 8:30.
  4. 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.
  5. The premise is only a small part of the problem in "Four Kings." The writing is labored, adolescent and unfunny.

    While the show has little going for it, it does have Seth Green.

    "Four Kings" isn't just tediously sitcommy, it's painfully sitcrummy.

    The first episode has just aired on British TV and I happened to check it out due to the fact that I am a huge fan of 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' and I thought that Seth Green was amazing as Daniel 'Oz' Osbourne and have been a fan of his work ever since. Watching it, I found my self in stitches and I thought it was pure comic genius. I'm so glad I watched it & I will be definately be tu ning in to the coming episodes. I even watched the first one twice today & was still laughing the second time. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone! I can't wait for it to be released on DVD.... Enjoy! Full Review »
