• Comedy Central is greenlighting Krod Mandoon and the Flaming Sword of Fire, described as a fantasy that centers around reluctant hero Krod Mandoon, a sensitive, clueless freedom fighter who becomes the last great hope in a medieval struggle. "Hey, that sounds like my 'World of Warcraft' character," said thousands of nerds in basements everywhere.
