The following production contains some mature (and some really immature) humor. A lot of it would not be considered politically correct either. If you want a list of trigger words, check a dictionary. If you continue, prepare yourself for a very different sense of humor. While there are no swear words, aside from fictional ones, we sincerely hope 'grot' becomes popular enough to get in the urban dictionary and soon will be seen spewing forth from the mouths of children, school teachers, soccer moms, and politicians. Wait.. that last one is probably already true!
The Gorgon Chronicles was my childhood playground, originally produced on Super 8mm with my friends from school and whatever kids form the neighborhood I could talk into being in it. The Valarians were our villains, all the way back to the 1970's. I have been stuck with these characters inside my head since I was in fifth grade. I think they went a bit funny trapped in there for so many years. It is nice to see them back on the screen with much more realistic sets than stapling some cloth to a wall and wrapping foil around household items. The characters changed a little bit for this adaptation shot in www.there.com, as I could not pull off all the things I wanted to do in terms of creature costuming. Five years in the making, and five minutes in, you will probably be watching some of other video of some Thereian yelling obscenities on someone else's YouTube channel. Still here is the premier episode of The Gorgon Chronicles, Miracle Pictures biggest and most expensive production ever!
Even though this is episode 2, there is no episode 1. We went directly to series, and the director thought the network wanted us to skip the pilot. Go figure... The series originally planned to be eight episodes long, but was reduced to four and then later to three. Even with only three it took several months to film all of this, and even longer to edit it together.

This episode is dedicated to the memory of Bhrocky, a rather fiery Thereian, who played the movie star and a Valarian in this episode. You can also spot him in episode 4 as one of the recruits and a patron at the canteen. We are missing you Bhrocky!
