New TV Series On Comedy Central:
Krod Mandoon and the Flaming Sword of Fire

Epic Fantasy is often a very serious undertaking. It is, after all, often about the big questions in life and the big adventures and quests that can be undertaken. But, every once in a while you have to take a break from saving the world and have a little fun... and thus we have:

Krod Mandoon!

Krod Mandoon wielding the flaming sword of fire

This is exactly what Krod Mandoon, the new Comedy Central series, does. And you have to admit that if you like epic fantasy, you know there is a lot of room for poking fun at the genre. To give you a taste of what they are trying to achieve with this show here is a quote from the official press release about the series premiere which is Thursday April 9, at 10 pm on Comedy Central.:

"Viewers are introduced to Krod Mandoon and his band of freedom fighters during the epic hour-long series premiere, in which Krod, the son of a blacksmith and a stay-at-home mom, is revealed to be "The Golden One," the last great hope in the rebellion against the cruel Meconian Empire and the wicked Chancellor Dongalor. Dongalor has not only imprisoned Krod's mentor, the great General Arcadius, but is also in possession of the ultimate weapon of mass destruction, the Eye of Gulga Grymna, which he plans to wield over his subjects in his quest to rule the world, if only he can figure out how to unleash its awesome power. When Krod and his gang set out to rescue Arcadius, viewers will quickly learn that his newly-recruited band of semi-skilled warriors have clearly padded their resumes and that for Krod to succeed in thwarting Dongalor's evil plans, he must grow thicker skin, overcome his germaphobia and work through his own sexual hang-ups with his Pagan girlfriend, Aneka."

I will be doing an advanced screening of the series premiere and let you know what I think of it.

My Quick Opinion? - There is nothing like this on television. It is unique and I have to give kudos to Comedy Central for cooking this up. The thing about it is that the genre of epic fantasy is so very popular in so many different variations from Conan to Dungeons and Dragons to Lord of the Rings and so many other things. It's about time somebody takes a lighthearted poke at it. It should be a lot of fun.

India de Beaufort as "Aneka" - Krod's Girlfriend

This show will be airing on thursday nights at 10pm which should tell you a little something. It is definitely going to be a little spicy. In the second video below called "Enter the Freedom Fighters" Krod chides Anika for her costume that really wasn't made for tumbling.
