If you could have heard the shrill sound that issued up and forth from me first thing this morning upon reading this news you'd have probably punched me in the throat. And I'd have deserved it! Lars von Trier is returning to his TV series The Kingdom! He's making for us a third and final season, following the first two chapters which aired in 1994 and 1997. The show, which is about a Danish hospital full of weird and wacko shit going down -- up to and including one of the most insane things involving Udo Kier that I have ever seen in any media in my entire life (and I have seen some shit involving Udo Kier in my life!) -- almost had a third season way back when but a couple of the actors on the show died and Lars set it aside... I guess not permanently, like I'd feared. Have y'all seen The Kingdom? Stephen King tried to pass off a shitty American version in 2004 -- I am real glad that won't have the final say.
