Well, let's see what we got here. Hmmm... mostly sex with a little comedy. Yup, this is definitely your typical hentai fare.
The first episode is just pure hentai, including such staples as incest, group sex, and transvestites. The "story" simply presents two horny women who meet and then decide to get it on. The character designs are weak, the whole plot is predictable and corny, and there is hardly any humor. I was kind of hoping this episode would have a humorous slant to it, but that simply wasn't the case (although I'll admit the ending is disturbingly funny).
The second episode is a bit more comedic, with less emphasize on sexual content. It's a rather short medieval fantasy tale, and follows the "hero rescuing the princess" routine right to the letter. However, when the "hero" attempts to seduce the princess the result is quite hilarious.
There's little else to say about Countdown. While I found the second episode a bit funny, the first one was rather tedious. If you're looking for a hentai video you could probably do worse (at least there were no tentacles in this one), but I suppose you might be able to do better.
The Verdict: * * 1/2 (below average)
