THE PLOT:

The evil Wizard King Hissah Zul has a vision of being defeated a killed by a long muscular warrior. That Warrior turns out to be the Cimmerian Conan who has found an ancient Atlantian sword and support of good friends he tries to make that nightmare for Zul come true.

But there are many obsticles and monsters standing in the way of that goal and if Conan is not careful, it may end before it begins.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

Now I got to admit this Conan series wasn't perfect. But if "Prison Break" and "Battlestar Galactica (2003)" can get a second season, then why not Conan. Which is way better then both those above mention crap fests. I tell you why, the Neilson rating, where minority rules. One person gets to be one million people is just wrong. We need to do away with the Neilson rating system to save good shows like Conan. Back to Conan, I think it is just as good as HERCULES: THE LEGENDARY JOURNEYS monster wise. But I do think that Ralf Moeller was just a little harder to understand then Arnold was. Which may have been one of the problems and they should have at least stop Zul at least once before the series was over. But that's a shame. Anyway, Conan is a good series and deserves more then it got and I say 8 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

Okay, the only thing I don't get is the talking skull. He's dead and exists in a pool of water, why does he needs rubies? What does the skull do with all the rubies Zul puts in there, eat them? What? That's one subplot that went no where. Anyway, I do agree it is a good series and even though I forgot it for a while doesn't mean I didn't like it. It got a raw deal and I don't know what show it went against, but I'm sure it was some crap soap opera. Like 7th Heaven or What About Brain or the new Battlestar Galactica. 7 STARS for CONAN.

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ CONAN (Always a fan of Conan.)
+ CREATURES (The creatures were pretty cool.)
+ STORYLINES (The storylines was pretty good.)
+ CHARACTERS (The characters were well written.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- ZUL (Conan never got to meet Zul, let alone defeat him.)
- RUBIES (What is with giving rubies to a dead guy?)
- RALF MOELLER'S ACCENT (Ralf Moeller's accent is thicker then Arnold's was in the first movie.)
- TOO SHORT (Needed a second season.)

...AND FINALLY...

- FAN BASED (IF you aren't a fan of the comic book or the movies, then this isn't the movie for you.)
