If you watch TV at all, you’ve probably seen previews for Comedy Central’s new show, KrÃ¶d MÃ¤ndoon and the Flaming Sword of Fire. The show takes the comedy that’s obviously fitting for the network and places it in a very fantastical, very Lord of the Rings type of world. In case you haven’t seen previews or forgot all about it, we’re here to remind you all to check it out tonight…it should be a good time.
The show stars Sean Maguire, who’s best known as the dude who says “You got served!” in the trailer for Meet the Spartans, but there’s no doubt KrÃ¶d MÃ¤ndoon will be much, much more entertaining.
Here’s the show’s press release and description:
What is that strange burning sensation? It’s “KrÃ¶d MÃ¤ndoon and the Flaming Sword of Fire
,” COMEDY CENTRAL’s epic half-hour, live-action series chronicling the adventures of KrÃ¶d MÃ¤ndoon (Sean Maguire) and his hopelessly inept band of freedom fighters in an ancient fantasy realm. Marking the all-comedy network’s first foray into fantasy-comedy, the groundbreaking series premieres on Thursday, April 9 at 10:00 p.m. marked by a special one-hour episode with limited commercial interruptions.
Narrated by Chris Parnell (“30 Rock”), the series follows reluctant hero, KrÃ¶d MÃ¤ndoon (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 (Matt Lucas, “Little Britain USA”).
