Bless you for making KINGS the #1 show of the week. The scene you mentioned where McShane goes nutters on his gay son was indeed a shocking and violent moment that was perfectly staged. I just finished the two-part series finale and boy, is it unfortunate that it wasn't given a reprieve like Friday Night Lights got after its low-rated first season.
