IMHO The original series was superior. However saying that this was a good attempt at a reboot and enjoyable to watch. There were some nice nods to the original series ( including a brief play of the original theme tune at one moment). The handling of the Tripitaka question was interesting as well. However if you get the chance definitely check out the original https://trakt.tv/shows/monkey as its fun to watch. Also for more stories on the exploits of The Monkey King I recommend checking out "A Korean Odyssey" (https://trakt.tv/shows/a-korean-odyssey) which is a more modern remake.

It's good cheesy fun viewing for the family.

Not really sure what this was about as I’ve never heard of this show from the past but let me tell you...it’s awesome. I can’t stop watching it. Who cares if it’s cheesy...I think that’s what makes this show so great. I really hope they make more seasons. I need to go find the original series somewhere & watch it.

If you can look past the mediocre acting it's a fun watch. Just like The Magicians :)

The new legend of monkey...? Well it's a pale shade of the original 1970 version... Interesting fact. .. Miriam Margolyes.... Is the Narrator (1970 s version) Pluses... Each episode is 23 minutes. ... It needs to be camped up more... Second season has dropped so may continue.... 6/10

a fresh dnd party in a modern version of those oldschool chinese martial arts movies. loved the plot twist in the first episode and the female characters are amazing. the show has some really good jokes.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
