I already blathered at you (and at the entire con) about it, but I just want to go on the record as loving this vid with all my heart. It's brilliant, and it's everything I ever hoped to see in a Kings vid.

This was amazing. I loved Kings so much, and this was a wonderful representation of the show. Jack! ::wibble::

So, so pretty. It makes me wish so badly that this show could have had a longer run, and we could have seen Jack develop even further.

This vid is fantastic. Your evocative editing makes for a clear narrative and emotional connection to the central character, even though I've only ever seen the first episode of the show. Really, really well done.

This vid is so gorgeous; it was a Premieres highlight for me. I look forward to rewatching it and catching all the brilliant things you did. The yellow scene with all the leaves blowing (you know the one) gave me that "...whoa" feeling. You = awesome.

You win. ::puts Kings in Netflix queue::

I loved the clarity of the narrative here; I didn't know a thing about the source, but you made it so easy for me to get the gist of what was going on -- the story of what, or who, is given up for the sake of power -- and knowing that much made me want to know more.

Oh, just beautiful. It makes me ache for what the show could've been had it been given a longer run.
