Krod Mandoon and the Flaming Sword of Fire

This show has a lot of sexual references but its directed well and without a doubt, watchable.

Is It Any Good?

Don't expect much depth from KROD MANDOON AND THE FLAMING SWORD OF FIRE. The swords 'n' sorcery spoof is simplistic and silly, the characters are broadly drawn stereotypes, and the action scenes aren't particularly impressive. But Maguire's earnest portrayal of Mandoon is entertaining, and the premise is fun. The show sets the bar low and manages to clear it.

That said, there are a few questionable points. The newest member of the rebel force is Bruce, whose chief character trait seems to be that he's gay. And not just a guy who likes guys -- his character is extremely stereotyped in a way that seems very dated and borders on offensive. And Aneka, besides her impressive skills with a knife, is notable mainly for her sexual appetite. She describes herself as having an open attitude toward sex -- which in this case means she'll sleep with just about anyone. She's fine with her choices, but it's clearly a sore point for Krod, and the rest of the group often derides her lifestyle. The show isn't complicated, and it's certainly not politically correct, but it's reasonably amusing.
