I really enjoyed this. It was actually my first exposure to the MK mythos, but after this and playing the demo for the new game, I'm thinking I might have to check out some more MK stuff.
Oh, and for anyone wondering, it looks like they might keep some of the supernatural elements. I watched a trailer earlier today on blastr
that references characters coming from different worlds, and a guy with black eyes and tattos wants Scorpion to fight for The Netherrealm. (The trailer pops up as another video option after the episode plays).
