Korgoth of Barbaria

Oh man, did I ever drop a ball on this one: I keet forgeting telling you about best thing since sliced bread - Korgoth of Barbaria

In a dark future wasteland, the great cities have risen and fallen, primordial beasts have reclaimed the wilderness and thieves and savages populate sparse, dirty towns. From the frozen north emerges a warrior known as Korgoth, and his merciless savagery may be his only key to survival. Korgoth of Barbaria was the pilot episode of an animated fantasy-action-adventure-comedy from Aaron Springer. The half-hour pilot aired on September 25th at 11:00PM EDT.
Basiclly this is best Conan "parody"...ever. I don't know if word "parody" is evern proper for this gem: Korgoth is as Conan as you can get and his savage world is populared by beautiful women, sorcerers and warriors. The show nearly draws its inspiration from Conan while the gags and the story are not tied to Conan in any obvious way (its more of a low fantasy parody).
The show (sadly only one episode) has many strong points:
1. Its blooooody. The ammount of violence is staggering so be advised (no really, its very graphic)
2. Great, griddy animation fitting the dark world of Korgoth
3. Best voice-over EVER. Every single character posseses amazing voice. Voice of Korgoth? Its Conan in every way.
4. Soundtrack. I am not a biggest fan of Heavy Metal (not a fan at all in fact), but it is soooo fitting.

Now go check the episode and don't get hooked too much - like I said: there is only one
