pof167

In this episode we all find out if we’re gonna die soon by pumping iron and watching each other’s karma auras.  And we laugh. It’s easy to draw the conclusion therefore that we’re covering 2003’s Running On Karma by Johnnie To & Wai Ka-fai and the Stephen Chow box office smash Flirting Scholar by Lee Lik-chi. Kenny B and Tom K-W are at hand to discuss with returning co-host Hong Kong Dave!
