Krod Mandoon And The Flaming Sword Of Fire
A fantasy action comedy series which followed the adventures of Krod Mandoon and his band of ineffectual freedom fighters
Krod Mandoon And The Flaming Sword Of Fire is a live-action comedy series that was billed as a character-driven show set in an ancient fantasy realm. The series follows the adventures of 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.
Our Review: This comedy was met with met with pretty much universally negative reviews. Whilst we can understand those views, we actually didn't think Krod Mandoon was that bad. Matt Lucas and Alex McQueen as the 'baddies' stole pretty much every scene they were in, making those sections of the show a joy to watch. Admittedly the bits based around Krod and his gang didn't gel to quite the same extent, with a number of gags falling flat, which was perhaps not the greatest situation for the title character to be in. And the less said about the bit where they turned into dogs the better!
