I just ran through all eight episodes of the Danish version of the Kingdom. So much freaky stuff, and lots of "oh snap!" moments. The series is paced really quite well, the end of each season in a perfect crescendo of mayhem. If this had been produced with modern technology, it would dazzle you, but the European snark is endearing enough to overcome.
I remember watching bits and pieces of the Steven King adaptation Kingdom Hospital, but don't remember much about it. Netflix should have the discs off to me soon enough and I can render a comparison.
