Born from an egg on a mountain top

I’m not sure whether to be ecstatic or very, very worried: remakes of cult TV shows can be appalling, but a 2006 version of Monkey is being made by a Japanese production company:

The Japanese series Monkey was a mainstay of ABC afternoon television programing in the 1980s, generating a cult following for its theme music, its fight scenes and dialogue that sometimes lost a little in translation.

Fast forward 30 years and Japan’s top rating TV network is trying to recreate the Monkey magic.

Read about it on the ABC Newsite.

Shouldn’t be worried I guess: The nature of Monkey was… irrepressible!
