Because The New Legends of Monkey looks slick and is fun, it should be a draw for families who want an entertaining co-viewing experience.

This remake loses some of that show's ludicrous appeal but should please children of all ages seeking a fix of the Far East.

May 10, 2018 | Full Review…

The series gently bends your expectations and plays with some modern (and seemingly outmoded) ideas of gender and power.

Aug 23, 2018 | Full Review…

Watching the series felt like watching a live-action version of Avatar: The Last Airbender, but one that was actually watchable.

Aug 23, 2018 | Full Review…

It's neither as psychotronic nor as deep as the original but it is flat-out great entertainment with its heart in the right place, an eccentric streak of humor and some cracking action.

May 3, 2018 | Full Review…

Campy fantasy-adventure reboot is silly fun for kids.

Audience Reviews for The New Legends of Monkey: Season 1

    Updated version of a series I loved as a kid. Right level of humour and I love the antipodean twist. Great fun.
  • Dec 16, 2020
    Started off with promise but the lame scattered and meandering script, mediocre acting and senseless inconsistencies in the powers of the main characters made for a tedious and ultimately frustrating experience. Gave up after watching several episodes.
  • Oct 10, 2020
    I grew up on the original and loved it. I just discovered this and I love it as well. This is quite different from the original TV show, but more than good enough to stand alone as good fun and entertainment in its own right. Watch it with fresh eyes and don't get hung up on what was. The middle way is golden!

    Its not even culturally appropriate! The scripts are off and not even good enough.
  • Oct 06, 2020
    It's shocking to see these kind of craps still happen to day. I like how we always robbing..cough* excuse me... taking story legend from other cultures and completely wash out entire culture behind it, from the characters to aesthetic. We might as well called this Lord of the Rings while we at it.
  • Sep 25, 2020
    The TV show about Monkey King(a skilled fighter, capable of defeating the best warriors of heaven) without normal fights and action. 90s Hercules and Xena look much better than this. Just a waste of time.
  • Sep 13, 2020
    I was concerned when they turned Tripitaka into a girl. I thought it was going to be another SJW women should be the lead when the story is of male antagonist. but I was pleasantly surprised in the plot twist on how that came about.

    Boring script. Bad acting. terrible
  • Sep 05, 2020
    Fun show with a lot of adventure. Touch of humor, and it doesn't take itself too seriously. Magic and friendships. Quirky characters. Visuallly interesting. Pure entertainment. Not overly violent or overly complicated. If you want a stressful night of horrible people doing horrible things... look elsewhere.
