    So what do you think of Kingdom?

    I'm looking forward to this, as a big fan of Stephen's work.

    I am enjoying "Kingdom" immensely. It is perfect viewing for a Sunday Night. It is well acted, the cast gel perfectly and the surrounding natural scenery is breathtaking.

    It's nice to see the Renaissance Man that is Stephen Fry displaying his dramatic acting skills once more.

    I love Stephen Fry and anything he does, and this was no exception. Great to see Tony Slattery again too!

    I'm really enjoying the series. I was pleased to hear that the first episode got over 8 million viewers and a second series has already been recommissioned. Personally I could do without Beatrice, but the rest of the programme is definitely perfect Sunday viewing.

    Yes, Beatrice is very trying but Hermione Norris is doing a good job of playing her.

    Tony Slattery is fun.

    And what is going on with Mrs. Thing

    So it's been given the go ahead for a second series? I'm in the U.S., so I'm totally out of the loop. The TV.com guide says "series finale" so I got a little nervous that the show ended before I even got a chance to watch it!

    Sorry, that's my fault - in the UK we call them series not season.

    So in US speak it is 'season finale'.

    Well, solid proof arrived to show that his brother was still alive ... as we were beginning to suspect.

    Showbiz Secret: my b/f lives in the village they film Kindgom in. He saw them film the First Season and now they've started work on the Second Season. Every time we watch the show he points the places out!

    I love it - Stephen Fry is a worthy person who can't do anything wrong really...

    He used to work in Safeway and Stephen Fry went shopping there once.

    His mum has met him a few times. :-)

    My Great Aunt Maryann is the actress that plays Mrs Thing. My family and I started watching Kingdom just to see her in it, but now we watch because it's such a good show.

    What makes it watchable is that its unusual - I get to see it on Hallmark and only started watching at ep 2. Ep 3 was funny - with the council blocking off Snells door. Its that kind of storyline that makes you laugh - cos it could happen. I'm looking forward to watching the rest

    Just seen the first episode now: can't belive I've never watched this series before! If the first episode is anything to go by, this series is going to be superb!

    (Wrote a review for ep 1 if anyone's interested )
