I'm a little late on this but I was browsing on www.imdb.com and found out about this. Now I haven't seen any of the episodes but I sure as hell am going to watch them ASAP. I'm a little baffled that I haven't heard about this cause I have always been a Mortal Kombat fan since the debut of the game on the SNES. I've always loved all the characters, with there bios and character design intact and was pretty damn happy when the newest installment of the game came out in March 2011. Unfortunately as most of you know(PSNers) or those who were living under a rock that don't, the Playstation Network was down during its release making it incapable of online play but now its fixed(TG!). But anyways... When I came across this (Mortal Kombat Legacy) I squealed for joy like a little school girl who just found out her crush likes her too. The web series is another creation by Machinima, a youtube channel well known for their video gaming videos and parodies. I'm gonna leave the embedded video for you fellow MK lovers in hopes that you all will share your opinions, your loves and hates about the show. I will be watching the first episode tonight before i head off to bed. Enjoy!

Okay, so I watched the first episode of this nostalgic web series and I have to say I'm already confused and a little disappointed with actor/actress choice and storyline. First, lets talk about the actors. Now I'm really gonna try to give the fact that this is the pilot, the benefit of a doubt. First of all Sonya Blade...why the fuck is she old? Sonya is supposed to be young and voluptuous and even I a hetero woman was disappointed by this. Now I understand that in the game/story she is a green beret, therefor I could see why she would be portrayed as "older and experienced." BUUUUTT regardless of looks I am still not sold on the actress who plays her. I'm thinking "wasn't this bitch on Star Trek?" and she was old looking then too...now I might be labeled a hater on this one but there are some actors/actresses that just rub you the wrong way and she is one of them. I won't even bother to look up her name cause I don't care.(<--see this is bad this means cast director needs fired or just slapped up the head) Moving on...Jackson Briggs aka Jax, is played by Michael Jai White, who I deemed absolutely perfect for Jax's role. Big muscles, great acting and overall splitting image of the character. For those of you who wonder where you heard that name from, he was Spawn in that 90s comic based movie and he was also Black Dynamite, a parody on Blacksploitation movies from back in the 70s. If you haven't seen it I would suggest it because its pretty damn funny....DYNOMITE! Anyways...So we also have Kano in this episode. The actor who plays Kano, Darren Shahlavi, is ok for now i will give him time, cause Kano's character has always been a bit flakey, but so far he's alright. I recognized him only because of the awesome movie Ip Man 2. If you're a Bruce Lee fan, you need to watch those movies, they are awesome! Moving on...Stryker.....I'll give it sometime to sink in......ok! The actor who plays Striker isn't too bad but I haven't seen quite enough of him to base an opinion. Alright now that it has sunk in...stryker isn't supposed to be introduced until the outworld starts invading earth. Also sonya and jax aren't SF...wtf right? I don't know...hmmm...well honestly that's all i can pretty much say about the first episode, cause i really don't want to ruin it for anyone who hasn't watched it sooo I will leave you with that. Please make posts about seeing it or if you plan on seeing it!
