Podcast On Fire 308: Young And Dangerous: The Prequel & Golden Job

Sandwiched in between Young And Dangerous 5 and its concluding part Born To Be King, Andrew Lau and Manfred Wong take us back to the past Hung Hing boys. Played by other boys. It’s Young And Dangerous: The Prequel and as a send off to the coverage despite having no narrative connection to the universe, we then fast forward to a 2018 heist movie directed by Chin Kar-Lok that functioned as a Y & D cast reunion film. Yes, even Jerry Lamb is here, in Golden Job. With Kenny B and Paul Fox of the East Screen West Screen podcast.
