In the worlds before Monkey, Primal Chaos reigned. Heaven sought order. But the Phoenix can fly only when its feathers are grown. The four world's formed again and yet again, as endless aeons wheeled and passed. Time and the pure essences of heaven, the moisture of the Earth, the powers of the sun and the moon worked upon a certain rock, old as creation. And it became magically fertile. That first egg was named "Thought". Tathagata Buddha, the Father Buddha, said "With our thoughts we make the world". Elemental forces caused the egg to hatch. From it then came a stone monkey. The nature of Monkey was irrepressible.'
Not as good second time around

I loved this as a teenager. Unfortunately it just seems completely rediculous as an adult. Ooops, where did my youth go, etc. Special effects have moved on so far that this just seems silly and the disjointed nature of the story was irritating rather than amusing. My interest in Buddhist culture was not satisfied as there is very little in what I can only describe as a lame TV show.
