Fans of the Mortal Kombat video game franchise have been waiting awhile to check out the new series of webisodes, the first of which just arrived online this week. These have an interesting backstory in that Warner Premiere commissioned the 10-part series following a short, well-produced viral video that made the rounds last year, injecting a whole lot of awesomeness back into a franchise that hasn’t been all that successful when it comes to live-action films (though the 1995 film will always hold a special campy place in my heart).
