I've only just started watching a few weeks ago but I'm getting interested I find Richard Remy amusing. Also could I mention that I think the Male Newscaster in Ep.13 was played by Vincent Tong?

Did they have to be lazy and use a small cast of Canadian actors? At the very least, Kong's vocal effects should have been Frank Welker.

@BNSF1995 Welker's all the way over in L.A. and he's not the only one in the whole industry capable of animal vocals. When you're recording in Vancouver, it's better to use whoever's readily available.

@BNSF1995 Uh, LA is not the only place with good VAs.

@BNSF1995 Implying that using Canadian voice actors is lazy?

@TylerMirage I'm fairly certain it was bad wording and they were more referring to the voice cast's small size, but even then that's not really lazy so much as economical use of vocal versatility.

@BNSF1195 Apologies if *that's* what you were referring to. Knee-jerk internet reactions and all that. ;)

@CatsTuxedo Exactly. There's plenty of shows that utilize a small cast to their fullest potential, and the results are (more often than not) completely fine.

Not what I thought a King Kong series would look like.

@Music Meister Honestly, I think it's pretty cool. The traditional story of King Kong makes for a great movie, but not really a prolonged series. I'm glad that the two Kong-based series we've had from these guys has been full of crazy ideas and monsters. :D

Is this the same Kong as those Scott McNeil versions?

@GreenGoblin75 Nah, but it's by the same guy, so it's more of a reboot than anything.
