    I dl-ed and watched pilot episode of Korgoth of barbaria last night. It's set in the far future, after the apocalypse (sorta like Thundarr the Barbarian) and it follows misadventures of our titular hero Korgoth, a Conan lookalike. Deidrich Bader is voicing Korgoth, the same guy who is giving voice to Hos Delgado on "Grim adventures of Billy and Mandy" on Cartoon Network. The show will be airing on Adult Swim.
    Anyway laughed my ass off last night, I can't wait for the series to start. The bar fight in the first half of the episode is great, and wizard Specules is hilarious. I won't elaborate because I don't want to spoil your fun watching it. Which you really have to do.

    I liked it. It had a very Heavy Metal feel to it (the original not 2000). I'm hoping ofr more.

    The lovechild of Tartakovsky and Spumco, it is everything you could want in a fantasy show.
    Whether this airs here or not, I WILL buy the dvds.

    This pilot was so good, my Dad found it to be great. He put it as being as good as Venture Bros, which is his favorite show next to Dr. Who.

    I really hope the series does pan out. The animation was great, and the voices were perfect. I see a lot of support for it all over the net, so hopefully it means it did well.

    Oh man, I've heard and read that the show was funny but I doubt I will ever see it in my country - where animation such as Venture Bros are deemed too "adult"...blah!

    It was pretty good. Adult Swim has it on the Fix sometimes.

    Yeah, I like how they draw men all dirty and rough, while women are all exagerated frazzeta style chicks. And I also like the way they use music, like in Heavy Metal movie.

    Korgoth should turn out to be a great addition to the AS line-up. As usual, it's just a matter of waiting (as I'm doing for the next season of Boondocks, the new Brak, ...).

    I was thinking of that but er, the some vids got removed after I viewed them. For example, Venture Bros. I got a sneaking suspection that my Broad Band provider had something to do with it.
