After being slightly disappointed with the last two episodes, episode 6 kicks it back in to gear. Leaving Edenian behind and return to Earth to focus on Raiden, we get a story that is both entertaining and a bit disturbing. Kevin Tancharoen does a great job in weaving a story that feels believable with Raiden. Having him land in a mental institution and being locked up and diagnosed with delusions of grandeur was a fantastic way to deal with a supernatural character who’s story could of wound up being generic and predictable. I also felt Ryan Robbins does a great job of portraying Raiden, almost makes you forget a white guy is playing the Japanese god of Thunder and Lighting. This series has it’s ups and downs but episodes like this show the potential that Mortal Kombat has to be a really good Tv show or movie. Now if I could just get that image of the ice pick to the brain out of my head.
