Kröd Mändoon and the Flaming Sword of Fire, and other bad TV shows

I was greatly entertained the other week by SFX’s list of the ten worst SF/fantasy shows of the decade (10: Hex, 9: Hyperdrive, 8: Jericho, 7: The Listener, 6: Blade, 5: Masters of Science Fiction, 4: Painkiller Jane, 3: Kröd Mändoon and the Flaming Sword of Fire, 2: Demons, and 1: Flash Gordon). But I was rather perturbed to realise that I had not heard of a single one of them; my diet of Who and its spinoffs, and earlier devotion to Buffy, somehow didn’t lead me to experiment with other sf shows. (I did try the new Prisoner, but just like I lasted only 20 minutes.)

So in a spirit of sientific enquiry I obtained and watched all six episodes of Kröd Mändoon, to assess whether SFX’s ratings were reliable. My mature judgement: SFX are probably right. Kröd Mändoon is rubbish, desperately trying to be funny but basically running through adolescent jokes about sex while waving swords about. At least the episodes are only twenty minutes long, and it filled a few commutes nicely.

But never mind what I thought; what do you think?
