I am – Hercules!!

“Krod Mandoon and The Flaming Sword of Fire,” a looming series that appears to make sport of “The Lord of the Rings,” “Xena,” and their ilk, hits Comedy Central April 9. The channel describes the premise:
Krod Mandoon and The Flaming Sword of Fire" is a groundbreaking action-comedy set in an ancient fantasy realm. The new Comedy Central series follows reluctant hero Krod Mandoon a thin-skinned and underconfident freedom fighter, who is the last great hope in the struggle against the evil ruler, Chancellor Dongalor. To help fight the great fight, Krod has assembled a band of remarkably ineffectual freedom fighters: Aneka, the beautiful Pagan warrioress whose weapon of choice is sex, Loquasto, the oafish servant with bad aim, Zezelryck, the young warlock whose greatest magical gift is spinning BS, and Bruce, who's simply fabulous. Together, they must overcome a myriad of evil obstacles in their quest to save the world, including name-calling, hired assassins and bad hair days.
The pilot was written by Peter Knight, whose credits include UPN’s “Sweet Valley High” and “Breaker High” and Fox Family’s “Big Wolf On Campus.” Krod is played by Sean Maguire, star of the short-lived CBS sitcom “The Class.” He also played King Leonidas in 2008’s big-screen “300” parody “Meet The Spartans.” The first eight pages of the pilot script:

    Looking at the previous work of the talent involved...

    by worthless

    ugh.

  • Dec. 19, 2008, 3:33 p.m. CST

    Hey, this could actually be...

    by pzadvance

    completely horrible. All signs point to shit.

  • Dec. 19, 2008, 3:42 p.m. CST

    Did someone -release- that script to you?

    by KCMOSHer

    I mean...wow. That's not exactly a 'buzz' generator. Better to bring The Guild to the network. Or better yet, Dr. Horrible. Or The Guild and Dr. Horrible in a weekly hour-long serial where each takes half an hour of an hour-long slot. Or just Shamwow commercials with Vince for half an hour instead of that tedious dreck.

  • Dec. 19, 2008, 3:49 p.m. CST

    Ugh.

    by landocolt45

    I'll just stick to watching The Guild thank you very much. This looks like utter crap, unless they improv the whole show like Reno 911.

    KROD

    by landocolt45

    Hey Krod IS dork spelled backwards, maybe it has some promise....

    What happened to Korgoth of Barbaria?

    by ev1ldead

    The pilot aired on Adult Swim years ago and was miles better than the first pages of this stinker.

  • Dec. 19, 2008, 4:13 p.m. CST

    Hey, Big Wolf on Campus was pretty good.

    by Raymar

    The killed both of the Coreys off (Haim and the other one) so I'm really interested to see how this shapes out. Shows like Xena are practically parodies anyway.

  • Dec. 19, 2008, 4:32 p.m. CST

    Sounds infinitely less silly than Legend of the Seeker

    by DrManhattansUnit

    and it's better-written too!

  • Dec. 19, 2008, 4:40 p.m. CST

    yes...where is Korgoth? and some more Samurai Jack

    by future help

    too. (even though Aku is dead (voice)

  • Dec. 19, 2008, 4:41 p.m. CST

    Okay, now I have to see this.

    by Anna Valerious

    Something has to fill the void of "Saul of the Molemen"...

    Technically this would be closer to ripping off Drawn Together

    by EvilWizardGlick

    Drawn Togethers gay Link. I miss songs like Black Chicks Tongue.

  • Dec. 19, 2008, 6:48 p.m. CST

    Oh goodie, a gay stereotype

    by RedCricketChase

    I was actually kind of pumped for this, up until the description of the last guy. Maybe it'll be good in spite of a character who bugs the shit out of me, who knows.

    Give Us Groo!!!!!

    is that a pic of the Adventures of Sinbad

    by the milf lover

    syndicated show of the late 90s? That's how crappy it looks. What a shitty show Sinbad was.

    Comedy Central

    by Series7

    Should've brought "The Legend of Neil"

    by Dingbatty

    from atom.com to TV instead.

  • Dec. 20, 2008, 5:36 a.m. CST

    ....I ...I THINK.... i think i remember where

    by brokenheadstuff

    all i recall is that oceanic86 kept begging me to shove them up his ass. i'm not sure if there still there, but i AM sure that i no longer want them.

  • Dec. 20, 2008, 5:47 a.m. CST

    I'M SORRY (aaaaagain)

    by brokenheadstuff

    "Joxer the Mighty, He's Very Tighty...."

    by thecomedian

    I miss Xena.

  • Dec. 20, 2008, 4:58 p.m. CST

    I sense crappiness

    by SlackAttack

    nyaaa I don't think so. That script read lamer than a quadriplegic sloth.

  • Dec. 20, 2008, 5:42 p.m. CST

    they should just make a Groo movie

    by Groothewarrior

    or even animate some of the Groo books

    Not even an "Epic Fail"

    by JT Kirk

    As that script falls far short of "epic", so it's just "fail". Hey, look, now I'm funnier than this show. I'm picturing Comedy Central giving it a 5 episode run then dumping it hard, and with no fanfare or marketing support whatsoever. Still, with the painful lack of new material out there lately, I'll probably give this a shot because I'm a masochist.

  • Dec. 21, 2008, 9:53 p.m. CST

    Bad script

    by Thrillho77

    It looks like something I would write, then go back and look at later , and then realize that it sucks.

  • Dec. 22, 2008, 11:25 a.m. CST

    So it's the medieval Mystery Men?

    by Immortal_Fish

    Between this and Bitches, those manatees are hard at work coming up with new shows.
