Monkeying Around on the Syfy Channel…

Flying Monkeys– – To me, they looked more demonic than simian, but that was perhaps the point.  The Flying Monkeys on the Syfy movie of the same name which aired on March 9th were evil, shape-shifting monsters, pets by day and killers by night.  Unrelated but with a number of shameless nods to the Oz saga (the movie’s even set in Gale, Kansas), these are nasty, flying beasties that swoop down to shred and tear…something to “get you, my pretty, and your little dog, too!” – -Shameless but captivating low-budget entertainment, and as much fun as a barrel of flying monkeys!  Just click your heels together while repeating, “There’s no place like the Syfy Channel!

    Yeah, I saw that last night, myself. Surprisingly, not bad! Perhaps because, for once, it was NOT executive produced by Roger Corman!! I especially loved the not-so-subtle jibes against gun-crazy American. Although, I must confess: my inner “good old boy” could not help gloating at how even BLESSED kung fu weapons are no match for superior numbers.

    Now, if I can just find out whether or not “tsi-go” is the correct Wade/Giles spelling of the Mandarin term for those supernatural simians.

    I was right. The correct spelling is “hsigo” (with, quite obviously, no hyphen).
