Storyline

Korgoth is a 22-minute animated parody of the sword and sorcery genre and follows the exploits of the most feared and physically awesome barbarian the world has ever seen. When an unsavory ruffian swings an axe into Korgoth's shoulder, it just makes him angry. And he's irritable and bellicose at the best of times. Korgoth lives in a world of spiteful wizards, overweight inn-keepers, devious and hedonistic thieves and distressed, scantily-clad maidens. Through brute strength, an absolute adherence to the tenets of stoicism, and a fair amount of sheer luck, Korgoth often finds himself coming out ahead of his medieval antagonists.

Quotes

[theme narration]
Narrator: The Great Cities have risen and fallen. Civilization's grip on mankind has grown weak and arthritic. Dark forces seek to renew forgotten covenants, and primordial beasts reclaim the wilderness. Out of the frozen north, a man emerges - a man of a barbaric age, whose merciless savagery may be the only key to his survival. They call him Korgoth!

Korgoth of Barbaria is in the house
15 June 2006 | by leinad_slinSee all my reviews

If you like splatter movies and film/ comic violence in general, this is the show for you! Great dialog, great everything. Personally I think this is the very best cartoon show on TV by the creature of Spongebob! And seeing that this is the first episode, I think the best ones are yet to be made. Not that the pilot is bad or anything. I love the fact that Korgoth is a straight forward type: when he get's a chance, he makes love to a chick, when he gets angry, he punches someone down. You just have to love him. So do check out the series for your and the shows sake. This is a hit waiting to be seen by those who do and those who don't like it!
