The BBC has always been noted for the high-quality of their productions, and Kröd Mändoon is no exception. The authentic settings and special effects are first rate. There is plenty of swordplay, as well as sorcery from the warlocks. The five episode story is also surprisingly strong, leading up to an unexpected conclusion.
The special features included in the DVD include a Behind The Scenes segment, interviews with the cast, and a myriad of outtakes.
Kröd Mändoon And The Flaming Sword Of Fire may have a limited appeal, but the fan base is growing. With the BBC ordering a second season, the momentum should continue. In any event, the first season of the program is very well done, and often hilarious in a low-brow way. It is certainly worth a look, especially in this unedited DVD version.
