Episode #0109 of the podcast is available for download! This week, we simply couldn’t arrange our 2007 retrospective (Julian took off to Tokyo, and there was too much news from the last two weeks).

Episode #0108 of the podcast is available for download! We’re kinda cheating this week, since we’re not even in town at the moment. This episode was recorded earlier in the week!

Chow Yun-Fat has indeed joined the cast of the live action movie! He will be playing Kame-Sen’nin (Master Roshi), lending at least a little more authority to the cast. Apparently director James Wong also tried to get some more Asian talent, including Edison Chen and Jitty Zhang Yuqi.
