So the cool folks at Comedy Central sent us a pre-release copy of their new show Krod Mandoon & the Flaming Sword of Fire for review. I finally had a chance to watch it and I was not disappointed. This show is hilarious! If you have ever been a fan of fantasy fiction like Lord of The Rings or The Seeker then you have to check out this show. I was reminded of some of my old favorites like Spaceballs, Airplane, Loaded Gun. Tons of quick one line off beat comments and some great physical humor.
Sean Maguire (Krod Mandoon) leads the cast well with good timing and clueless demeanor. India de Beaufort (Aneka) successfully executes her role with decent acting and provides ample eye candy for the true fantasy fan boys out there. Kevin Hart (Zezelryck) is by far my favorite. He plays a hopeless mage that can’t seem to get it right. Kevin Hart’s stand-up comedy is hilarious and I think he is a perfect fit for the role. Krod Mandoon premieres Thursday, April 9 at 10:00pm ET/PT, do yourself a favor and watch this one.
Here is some more info from the Comedy Central Press Release:
“Krod Mandoon and The Flaming Sword of Fire” is an outrageous, character-driven workplace comedy set in an ancient realm. Narrated by Chris Parnell (“30 Rock”), the series follows reluctant hero, Krod Mandoon (Maguire, “Meet the Spartans”), a thin-skinned and underconfident freedom fighter, who is the last great hope in the struggle against the evil ruler, Chancellor Dongalor (Lucas, “Little Britain USA”). To help fight the good fight, Krod has assembled a band of loyal, but remarkably ineffective freedom fighters: Aneka (India de Beaufort, “Run, Fatboy, Run”), the beautiful Pagan warrioress whose weapon of choice is sex; Zezelryck (Kevin Hart, “Fool’s Gold”), the young warlock whose greatest magical gift is spinning B.S.; Loquasto (Steve Speirs, “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest”), Krod’s oafish half human/half swine servant; and Bruce (Marques Ray, “Nick Cannon Presents: Wild ‘N Out”), who’s fierce and proud. Together, they must overcome a myriad of evil obstacles in their quest to save the world, including name-calling, hired assassins and a bisexual Cyclops (or biclops).
