Watch the Full Intro for New IFC Comedy Miniseries <i>The Spoils of Babylon</i>

IFC’s fake miniseries adaptation of a fake book by a fake author just got a real intro. Spoils of Babylon’s epic three-minute opening sequence is now online, and it sets up the whole series as…what now? All we know is that it’s got a Thorn Birds vibe, and based on previously-released behind-the-scenes-but-it’s-actual-content footage it’ll have a “fake look back” format like cult classic Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace. Also this first chunk of the show is packed with weird, meticulous elements like plastic miniatures, pacing that’s just a liiiiiittle bit off and Val Kilmer.

Watch the clip below to experience what promises to be an epic “epic” experience. If nothing else, you’ll hear a theme song that only be described as “a Perry Como James Bond Theme, if that were a thing.”
