son of zorn

This Zorn action figure from Son of Zorn can be yours for the low, low price of $15.




“The Weekend Warrior” scares me a bit as it seems network television may be too constraining for Son of Zorn to reach it’s potential. In its short time on the air the show’s best moments have been when they have embraced the absurd and violent tendencies of Zorn (voiced by Jason Sudeikis). The latest episode teases such mayhem with Zorn spending time one-on-one with his son (Johnny Pemberton), but in reality not very much happens (even when Alan steals Zorn’s plasma gun to impress the cool kids at school). While there’s still fun to be had, I want to show to embrace it’s fun-loving, yet murderous, barbarian a little more fully than happens in this episode.



The opening episode of the new series introduces us Zorn (voiced by Jason Sudeikis), the Defender of Zephyria, Conqueror of the tribes of Agon, decapitator of the dark herdsmen of Grith, who leaves the animated Pacific island to return to California for his son Alan’s (Johnny Pemberton) seventeenth birthday. Zorn immeadiately stands out, not because he’s animated in a live-action world, but because of his warrior nature and complete disregard for, well, everything. Unable to connect with his son, Zorn decides to stay in town a while longer, get a desk job, and try to fit in.
