Podcast On Fire 296: The Final Option & The Case Of The Cold Fish

It’s the emergence of Stone Wong, a role Michael Wong would be associated with and known for from this point in his career training Special Duties Unit cadets, fighting crimes and dealing with drama at home. It’s the cop soap opera era, arriving in the form of 1994’s The Final Option. Also, a Lantau Island set murder mystery where a version of Stone Wong is sent and promptly made fun of. Michael Wong goes up against a fat Michael Chow in The Case Of The Cold Fish from 1995. Kenny B and Phil G continue to discuss the films of Michael Wong. We’ll review 9 movies throughout the long career and officially determine whether he’s Wong or Wrong.
