WoW Moviewatch: The Mini-Show of Krys

In honor of today's subject, I was going to try and write this recap in French. As my French skills are kind of sad, though, I ended up sparing you that pain. But I tried.

Today's Moviewatch is pretty cool. The Mini-Show of Krys is definitely a different take on what you can do with the world and objects in World of Warcraft. French animator Krys has put together an animated series based on the game, and uses the world at large as a backdrop for most of his animation. Don't worry -- there are subtitles aplenty. This is the 6th in the series created by Krys.

It's definitely light hearted and an amusing offering. I know I'll be quoting "You suffer the punishment of Doggy the Dog!" in the battlegrounds for a while, and that's not all the laughs the Mini-Show has to offer. I often wonder if some of the humor doesn't get lost (or injected) in language translation. The English subtitling is definitely solid, though, so I don't think we're missing out on much of Krys's humor. This is definitely a series I'll be watching for later installments.

Make Love, Not Warcraft wins Emmy

The South Park WoW episode: "Make Love, Not Warcraft" won the Creative Emmy for Outstanding Animated Program (for Programming Less Than One Hour).

Though the Primetime Emmys will not take place until Sunday, September 16th, the Creative Arts Emmys were awarded yesterday, September 8th at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, CA.

South Park beat out episodes from The Simpsons, Avatar, Robot Chicken and SpongeBob SquarePants for the award.

This episode is on the 10th season DVD which recently came out and don't forget you can get a discount just for typing in the code WARCRAFT if you order it from Comedy Central.

This isn't the first Emmy that South Park has won, but perhaps this kind of attention will get WoW more positive (or at least humorous) attention in other television shows. Though, when it comes to TV ratings, 9 million people worldwide does not a target audience make. For example, American Idol was considered slipping when it only had 30 million US viewers for an episode.

Would you like to see WoW references appear more often on TV? Or are you too busy playing to care?
