The Tower of Druaga

The Tower of Druaga makes great inspirational viewing for FRPGs. It's about a group of delvers who dare to climb the evil tower of the title and draws on Babylonian mythology. It's based on an arcade game from the 80s and the first episode is a comedic spoof of all the games clichés. After that it settles down to a more serious adventure yarn, but with plenty of comic elements. For example, the party's wizard, Melt, has an assistant, Coopa, who basically acts as a caddy handing him different wands she pulls out of what amounts to a golf bag.You can watch both season one and season two over at ANN.
