Though many versions of Journey to the West have been made, I still love the original 1986 series. CCTV has been broadcasting this every year for some time now. You'll also find a Dicky Cheung version and 2010 version. Liu Xiao Ling Tong stars as Sun Wukong, a mischievous monkey who was released by stone, thus earning the name of 'Stone Monkey' and 'Monkey King'. After causing chaos in heaven, he must accompany Tripitaka across the land full of demons who believe drinking Tripitaka's flesh will gain them longevity.
What follows is a lively story of their journey to the west. The hard part in watching these old series is where to find them. You can find them easily however they won't have English subs. There are a few VCD copies which have English subtitles however you can buy the English subtitles released by CCTV on Ebay! Enjoy! This CCTV series is a classic and anyone who wants something relaxing and enjoyable, this is it!
