Got my birthday presents from my folks today — direct from HKFlix.com, I have two wuxia television series on DVD:
(The 2006 TV version of Louis Cha (Jin Yong)’s novel, spanning 41 episodes on 9 discs)
The TV series version of Tsui Hark’s “Seven Swords”, filmed directly after the production of the movie was finished. 39 episodes on 8 discs, covering the story “Seven Swords of Mount Tian” in full detail.
Also in the shipment was “Wind and Cloud” — a disc where they edited the 2004 TV version of “Storm Riders” into a 2-hour movie (down from 20-something hours. YIKES), and packaged it as a sequel to the film version:
Not quite as cool as the other two (since it will be fairly disjointed from the editing), but fun nonetheless.
I am one happy wuxia pian kuang re zhe!
