King David on NBC Sunday night

I am not trying to obscure Adam's very interesting post below. I just wanted to put up an alert that this Sunday evening at 8:00 ET/PT NBC is premiering a series that is a modern day retelling of the story of King David. The actual review of it that ran in USA Today this morning is not great. However, I found this secondary article about the Biblical history behind the modern story (and the interpretive choices made) to be quite interesting. Not everyone here will agree with the interpretive calls made. The series may not be worth watching, but the line about the censors backing down every time an OT chapter and verse was cited is priceless.

If you watch it, let's talk about it here next Thursday. Oh, the name of the series is, Kings.
