I have not seen an abundance of Cheh's Venom Mob stuff in my queue.  Maybe I am not looking hard enough.

I suppose I didn't look very hard since it shows up on El Rey Network with welcomed regularity.

There are quite a few Shaw Bros movies on Netflix but they can be hard to find.  The best way I found is to use the phone app and go into the Foreign section, from there, there is a Chinese sub-division (sometimes they have a Martial Arts one as well) where they are usually listed.  They have a number of the movies released by Dragon Dynasty/Miramax as well, including some that never made it to DVD stateside.

The Kid With The Golden Arm might just be my favorite Shaw Brothers film not named Super Infra-Man

For me, the title of Favorite SB Feature is a toss up between Kid With The Golden Arm, Flag of Iron, Masked Avengers, and Magnificent Ruffians / The Destroyers mostly because those are the movies where Lu Feng is allowed to go nuts with pole weapons.

Golden Arm may edge the others slightly since it contains the rare Lo Mang antagonist role and he finally gets the lengthy fight scene he deserved to be in all along.

I have a soft spot for Invincible Shaolin and the Brave Archer trilogy as they represent the handful of Shaw movies where Lu Feng did not play the heavy.

And then there is Avenging Warriors of Shaolin and its ridiculous Kung Fu death scenes.  So great,,

I'm excited Master of None is one of the best originals they've had so far, glad we're getting a second season.

I thought all or nearly all of Space Mutiny was already on YouTube.

That's by far my favorite episode. I think it was the favorite of the others I watched MST3K with. I always get tickled when I learn of how much others like that episode or can quote it.

When they do rankings, Space Mutiny is usually #2 behind The Final Sacrifice.

Watched Jim Norton's Mouthful Of Shame last night. It was just added yesterday and very funny.

New Louis CK on Netflix! Haven't seen it yet, but thought folks should know. Has anyone watched the Chappelle specials yet?

They're both very good IMO.  He's been catching some flak for being homo/transphobic, but I don't think the jokes were that bad.

The second one is far better than the first, but the homophobia is a bit troubling. For me, it took me out of the specials briefly.

Ah, homophobic infers hate, it was just jokes. Jokes to make you uncomfortable, but nothing hateful.
