kings-tvshow.jpgGiven that NBC’s new series, “Kings,” is lifted straight from the Old Testament, it’s more or less a feast for religion scholars and for “religiously minded” folks when it comes to pop culture.

Even though we might agree that “Kings” has a lot of religion going on, whether it’s a good show that lives up to its biblical roots is another question. Check out these two very thoughtful articles on the series:

1- (Pro) Diane Winston’s “Divine Inspiration: Kings Works Wonders

2- (Con) Cynthia Astle’s “Pretty People, Shiny Clothes: Biblical Illiteracy in NBC’s Kings.”

Which writer makes the better argument?
