Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 4

This episode of Mortal Kombat: Legacy kind is the one that really takes the series away from director Kevin Tancharoen's original "Rebirth" short by taking a turn into the mystical realm of Outworld. It has the major Mortal Kombat Outworlders of Kitana, Mileena, Shao Kahn, Sindel, and Baraka. Baraka is back to the Tarkatan we know instead of the crazy martial arts surgeon from "Rebirth." So, at this point I would say it's safe to assume that most, if not all, of the characters will be more typical Mortal Kombat instead of the gritty real world-ness. It's not a bad thing, but it just makes me wonder how the series would have been if it had followed the "Rebirth" concept more. The episode also has some animation, which is cool, but given how short these episodes are, I almost feel cheated from seeing more live-action. That said, I'm still enjoying the show and am glad we have a new live-action Mortal Kombat series in existence.
