+1 Flaming Flameburst Sword of Fiery Flameness

I've had this series on my DVR-radar for quite some time, and it's finally here:

"Krod Mandoon and the Flaming Sword of Fire" on Comedy Central



Well, it was pretty darn silly, but that's also pretty much why I sat down to watch it. The first 2 eps ran back to back Thursday night, but they are replaying it a few times or so it seems. Try to catch it to see if you dig it or not. Here's a few lines from the other night:

Krod to (the pagan hottie) Aneka:
"If you're gonna tumble, you shouldn't wear *that*...they saw everything!"

Krod to Aneka:
"It's not a chastity belt. That's state-of-the-art vaginal armor."

Zezelryck (wannabe Wizard) to Krod

"And some of those spells are on a timed release, so we may not know for weeks all the good that I did."

Chancellor Dongalor to his advisor Barnabus:

"Engamora? What is that, gay for good-bye?"

Bruce (Krod's mentor's prison lover) to Krod's question of "The Golden One?":

"It's a slightly less cliche way of saying 'The Chosen One'."

Chancellor Dongalor questioning a potential assassin for hire:
"If you were a tree, what kind would you be?"
Assassin:
"A killing tree."

the Narrator describing part of Krod's plan:
"...possibly put the kibosh on a pagan gang bang."


There were many more goofy yet giggle-inducing moments, including the story of a prisoner who's name sounds surprisingly similar to the crime he *allegedly* committed (his name: "Horst Draper"), and some pagan pole-dancing at the 300 Raccoon ceremony, etc.

As stated, it was very, very silly, but it might still be worth some more viewings/recordings. Heck, my DVR has at least a whopping 4% free space at the moment, so why not? We'll see...

I wasn't expecting much and found the first two episodes to be fairly fun. Sure, it is ridiculous, but it was also witty.

I thought the villain was great. The actor really did a good job with the material. The comedic Orc/Groggle needs more to do to really make use of the character. I'll definitely be checking out the series. Besides, the pagan chick is pretty easy on the eyes.

Sixteen minutes into episode three I was done with this, it became too painful. I don't believe that the girl (who looks like a b-grade adult film star) can save this one anymore.

Yeah, it's getting pretty rough. I'm still recording and watching a day late or so, but it needs to get better quick.

Silly is one thing, but that last one was basically a stinker.

I wonder if it's worse because it was only a single ep...ie, notback to back as the first 2 were. Not sure.

I'll still watch it though....for now.

Heck, I'm still recording Dollhouse, for the love of Mike!
