I'm a pretty positive person - honest. I've never kicked a puppy or let someone's birthday go by without crafting a Dr Seuss style limerick or poem, exclusively for the birthday-ee.

Despite this, I find the mega-popular G-rated Street Fighter only leaves me craving the significantly darker world(s) of what should be the king of fighters; Mortal Kombat.

Luckily I'm not alone in my love of MK's mythology and the odd spleen or spine removal, as last years "fan film" Mortal Kombat: Rebirth showed (posted here) - by giving us fanatics something  to fanatic about, after a pretty lengthy drought.

Now those same talents have kicked off a 10 part web-series Mortal Kombat: Legacy. Directed by Kevin Tancharoen and starring Tahmoh Pennikett (Battlestar Galactica) as Striker, Michael Jai White as Jax, and Jeri Ryan (Star Trek: Voyager) as Sonya Blade, the standout performance goes to Darren Shahlavi as the ultimate arcade coin stealer; Kano.

How can there be such a quality MK "fan film" when Hollywood can't even nail The Punisher? Pass. All I know is you won't have to hit forward-back-back-button in order to see all ten episodes. As they are unleashed I'll be posting them right here, and all you have to do is hit is 'play' - just like on episode one right below (Not Work Safe).


  1. well done. I may borrow this if you don't mind. Either that or I'll be linking to this post. I've been waiting for episode one of this series.

  2. No worries Craig! Glad you liked it too!
