The success of HBO's GAME OF THRONES has led to a lot of expensive, epic, violent and sex-filled television shows, but none were less successful than OF KINGS AND PROPHETs, the ABC series that told the story of King Saul (Ray Winstone) and David (Olly Rix), was expected to be a huge audience draw, and which only lasted two episodes.

Who could have foreseen the failure of OF KINGS AND PROPHETS? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are here to take a close look at this biblical misfire, to analyze its place in religious cinema, and to consider OF KINGS AND PROPHETS deserved to last more than two measly episodes.

Before there was HBO's WESTWORLD, and after there was Michael Crichton's WESTWORLD, there was the short-lived television series BEYOND WESTWORLD. Jim McMullan and Connie Selecca star as Delos agents who are tracking down realistic robots that have been unleashed on the world by a mad scientist, played by James Wainwright. Will they be able to foil his nefarious scheme to take over nuclear submarines, football teams and rock bands?

We'll never know, because unlike the HBO series, BEYOND WESTWORLD was canceled after only three episodes. But was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are on the case, reviewing all five BEYOND WESTWORLD installments, including two that were filmed but never shown on television! Listen up and you'll find out if BEYOND WESTWORLD as really weird as it sounds, and whether it holds a candle to the original movie or to the acclaimed HBO series.

What did Leonard Nimoy do after the STAR TREK television series but before the STAR TREK movies? He was BAFFLED! It's a feature-length pilot for an NBC mystery series, in which Leonard Nimoy plays a psychic race car driver solving mysteries in a weird Agatha Christie-like house, along with an alluring female companion played by Susan Hampshire.

This funky fantasy never went to series, but was BAFFLED!... canceled too soon? Join film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold as they probe the pilot of BAFFLED! for its many secrets, ponder the sultry sensuality of Leonard Nimoy, read some of your emails and fall down the never-ending rabbit hole of fan theories.

It's one of the most infamous shows in TV history, a series that only lasted four episodes in 1996 before ratings and controversy shut it down. It's PROFIT, a cynical and disturbing drama about a sociopathic businessman who will stop at nothing to get ahead, indulging in sex, drugs, murder, blackmail and worse to become President of Acquisitions at a multibillionaire company. Critics raved, audiences refused, and one of our most requested episodes was born.

But was PROFIT really canceled too soon? Join film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold as they audit this cult classic series, and decide once and for all if PROFIT was really ahead of its time... and how it's currently way behind the times today. Was it insightful or shallow? Empowering or sexist? And where would the story of PROFIT have gone if the show continued, and how close did we really come to a crossover between PROFIT and ANGEL? (Here's a hint: closer than you'd think!)
