Yeah, pardon me, I've forgotten alot of the little details from Rebirth especially the photograh of Tsung. So James Lew as Tsung eh? Damn it all to hell! Oh well, still stoked for the series. I wonder if anything more can come of this after it wraps. I guess that depends on how finite the ending will be when they wrap.

Sweeeet!

Last I heard, the whole Jeri Ryan Mortal Kombat concept was dead in the water!

Nope. It was green lit back in Jan I believe. The director and writer for those that don't know, Kevin Tancharoen, is the brother of Maurissa Tancharoen (who co-wrote Dr. Horrible's Sing-A-Long Blog and is married to Jed Whedon I believe.

Re: Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 1 is Online!

Went back and watched the short film trailer and then this again. Just absolutely awesome stuff. Now this is the definition of rebooting.

Re: Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 1 is Online!

Holy crap this series is awesome. From last years short, to the trailer, to this first episode... just... awesome!

A bit cheesy in places, but that's part of the awesome.

Re: Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 1 is Online!

I agree there were some cheesy elements lol. Kano's taunting of Sonya for example.

That was relatively OK; it was the guy playing Stryker that was the biggest ham.

^ The dude playing Stryker is none other than BSG alumnus Tamoh Plinkett! He seemed hokey on purpose though lol.

Re: Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 1 is Online!

I don't think I've mentioned yet how great the score was! I thought it was really good, but have to be honest was expecting to hear the classic theme song at the end credits.

Re: Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 1 is Online!

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).

Re: Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 1 is Online!

^ Kevin talked about possibly keeping the supernatural elements intact in an interview he did last year online. He's a huge fan of the franchise and this has been a labor for love. Remember, Jeri Ryan basically did the short trailer last year because she was good friends with Kevin. I just can't get over how well Jeri works as Sonya Blade! I would have never in a million years thought of her lol.

I remember a clip was brought up a while ago, but no one knew anything. Got this from Subspace Communique today, thought people might find it interesting. There's an interview of Jeri Ryan.

Great interview.
