I absolutely loved Monkey Magic as a kid and still do, much to the disgust of my parents and husband. Anybody else play games with other kids when they were little pretending to be the characters and battle demons and what not?

In the original book by wu-cheng yen,they made it to india and were all made divine beings,back in our world,the actress,(yes,she was female,like we all couldn't tell),shot,and killed her adulterer husband,and i think died in prison.I recently saw a programme with an interview with the 'monkey'.actor,who you wouldn't recognise as the same guy,who's only complaint was that all that staff- work,had muscled his wrists and forearms to the point of ruining his golf game.Incidentally,as i was about 8 or 9 when it was on fridays 6pm on bbc2,my grandad made me a brilliant replica from a broom handle painted black and gold,fantastic!!

my sister and i LOVED this show. like, seriously LOVED it. i remember it really clearly even though it was ages ago. and i even remember all the words to the song... "born from an egg on a mountain top, the punkiest monkey that ever popped..." it's definitely on my list of box sets to buy, but it's a freaking loooooong list, so it will be a while! i wish they'd repeat it on cable so i could watch it again.
i do remember the very last episode, but it wasn't like a big ending. i remember Trippitaka's mother died, and i think that was the episode that monkey fell in love with some chick. but yeah, they didn't reach India in the show, because it was cancelled after that.
