What do "the adventures of a blind, gambling masseur who also happens to be a master swordsman", the television show "Sons of Anarchy" and Star Wars all have in common? Tune in and find out as we connect some tenuous dots between a wide range of genres and time periods in our review of "Zatoichi: The Tale Of Zatoichi" the first of 26 movies and 100 television episodes produced between 1962 and 1989 that follow the life and exploits of Ichi, the wandering blind ronin or as Ichi says "yakuza".
Next episode we had planned to watch "To Sir, With Love" but then realized that our podcast will come out the day before Christmas and so of course we have to watch a Christmas movie. Settle in, pour yourself something warm to drink and prepare for a "White Christmas". Enjoy!
We'll circle back to the movie "To Sir, With Love" in four weeks time.
