It was a great show IMO. I would buy it, but there was only one season done so I kind of feel like why bother.

The show was done as a 6-episode miniseries. I think it's pretty satisfying by itself.

Hmmm....I don't think when it first came out it was a miniseries. But the one thing I don't remember was how it ended. Either way for a little under $8 it is not a bad deal.

It was. That is why I said I don't believe that it was a miniseries when it came out. There was supposed to be a season 2.

I guess I stand corrected. This was over at Amazon.com from the reviews of this show...

Hi there. It is so nice to read all of the reviews on our show KINGPIN. I was one of a bunch of people at Spelling Television in Los Angeles who developed and sold this show to NBC. Originally KINGPIN WAS intended to be a full fledged network series. The network got cold feet at the last minute, however, and ordered only 6 episodes telling us if it did well, they would order more and turn it into a series for the next year. Funny/sad thing happened. The network aired the series on Sunday nights AND on Monday (maybe it was Tues. can't remember now). The problem was NO ONE KNEW the second episode on Monday was a NEW episode. So no one watched the second episode. Over a three week period, NBC aired new episodes twice a week. EVEN PEOPLE IN HOLLYWOOD WORKING IN TELEVISION WERE CONFUSED. For the first time ever an NBC President admited it was his mistake for airing two original episodes in one week, admiting it was a mistake and confused viewers - even some at NBC not in charge of scheduling! So there yah go, the ratings for the second airing sucked and they didn't order it for a full series order. Also, it really was a tough sale to the advertisers and NBC just thought they'd play it safe and go with a safer sale. Remember, it's all about advertising dollars. A lot of companies didn't want to sponser KINGPIN based on it's Sapranos-esq. content. I also think the network wanted HUGE HUGE ratings, it did get high ratings on Sunday night -- but they wanted HUGE. I believe it came in #1 in total views and the demo of 18-49, but again they wanted HUGE. But I am SO thrilled it was released on DVD through NBC Studios and Spelling Television. I hope you all tell as many people as you can about it. We were/are very proud about it and were happy it took the Spelling Television brand to a new level (we were previously known for BEVERLY HILLS, 90210 and MELROSE PLACE, among other shows. Thanks so much and please drop me a line if you have any thoughts about this show, I will pass them along to series creator David Mills. Just put KINGPIN in the subject line. Jon B.

it's a very good show but it ends with lots and lots and lots left unfinished. I have to say I loved it but was very dissappointed with the end.
