    Thursdays are already crowded

    I don’t think I’ll be watching after this week. It’s moving so painfully slow, that I’ve lost interest in the storyline. It’s also too short, in the fact that there are a LOT of commercial time wedged into this program. Really kills any hope of pacing.

    There’s other stuff the wife and I like to watch on Thursdays. ABC’s issuing a death sentence by moving it.

      I think the show carried it’s own death sentence from the very beginning. Don’t get me wrong, I love SK, but this series is NOT his best work! I hope that ABC wasn’t foolish enough to buy season 2 of this disaster!

    Must have been an ABC April Fool’s joke
    According to the listings in the paper it was supposed to be on at 9 pm but at 9 they aired another one of those “reality” shows which I avoid like the plague. Of course if the audio on the show doesn’t get any better I may have to start avoiding it as well (or watching the closed caption version).

      You know, that’s just what I was thinking!! April Fools!! I go to my mom’s to watch Kingdom Hospital and when we watched on Sunday, they said it would be on Thursday nights starting next week. So last night, I wasn’t expecting it on at all until I pulled up the onscreen guide on my tv and it was supposed to be on..upsetting because it would be opposite CSI and the Apprentice, all three being shows I love to watch. I scrambled to set up the vcr to tape Kingdom and would watch Apprentice because the last few weeks CSI has been repeats. All set up, I turned it to Apprentice…which was a repeat. What is with that??? So I thought, well, I will switch and watch Kingdom…no Kingdom..just extreme makeover or something…agggh! I hate the way the networks just get us used to a time slot and then switch it to try and get the numbers…if they would just get better programming they wouldn’t have to switch because people would be watching. Just LOVE Kingdom Hospital!

    Kingdom Hospital is worth watching.
    King’s character representation which is strong in his books are pretty much up to that standard here – as best as TV can do – and while this may not be the best horror around, the story line is good, especially since it recalls King’s own accident. The mental frustrations of being half=awake in my opinion are excellent.

    I love the show, but I liked the Wednesday time slot. Now it’s in direct competition with CSI, another favorite of mine. I totally disagree that the plot is moving slowly. Does anyone know when it will be available on DVD or VHS?

      I don’t even know if it’ll be coming. TV Shows on DVD
      does an excellent job of keeping track of this stuff, and
      they don’t have anything for it yet.

    Kingdom Hospital Theme Song
    Does anyone know who does the little trip-hop number during the credits? It’s the only reason I ever tune in to the show. Ten minutes later I’m bored and on to something else. King has always been hit-and-miss but, considering the participation of Lars Von Trier, this series is a huge disappointment. Incohesive. Silly. And, I mean, Andrew McCarthy?!

    Whats going on?
    Was Kingdom Hosptial cancelled or what? For two weeks I waited for the next episode. Then last week again something else in it’s time slot.
    I hate it when I start watching something and then network pulls it with no explaination.. It’s like tearing the last chapter from a book. I know it was slow, had lots of commercials and was a little off the wall at times, but I liked it better than some of these other crappy shows they force down our throats…
    IT SUCKS!
