Six episodes in and Legend of the Condor Heroes 2017 continues to impress me as the best TV version yet of probably *the* most famous Chinese martial arts epic ever.

If you like Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, etc, then this is a great time to get on board the Jin Yong train.

Genghis Khan! The Jin-Song wars! Kung fu princesses! (multiple of) Kung fu witches! The forbidden NINE YIN BONE CLAW skill! A martial arts tournament! (of course) Romance! (multiple of) A big war!

This has been latent on my to-watch for years. You have nudged it to the active queue.
@natecull No, wait, 2017? There's a 2017? Cool! Then probably the rest of the family will be interested too!
Oh, it's Dragon TV, in Mandarin. No, that killed it I'm afraid.

@clacke Yay!

My wife is a huge fan of the 1983 version and even she thinks this one is pretty good, so that's a high recommendation.
