American television network AMC has ordered six one-hour episodes of a new martial arts drama said to be "very loosely" based on Journey to the West, a household legend in China. The tentative title is Badlands.

Some Chinese think that it is weird to see the main characters have exotic faces while some others think that it is a cultural exchange between China and the US, marking the increasing influence exerted by Chinese culture, and it is a blessing for China. What is your opinion?

Why? It was shown as Monkey in the UK when I was a kid.

I expect the Americans to make Sun Wu Gong into an all American hero

Journey to the West has already been loosely adapted in Japan and broadcasted in the West under the title "Dragonball"

Looking forward to see the American adaptation of this Chinese household classic.

I think it will be fun. How will they make the movie reflects their understanding/opinions(or value) about the famous novel. And to exchange opinions about a novel with someone is always interesting and a kind of joy. Not to mention this exchange is from a different culture.

It's good,of course,as long as they don't make my childhood hero Sun Wu Kong too ugly or stupid,or less powerful/strong/clever/fun  than he is,like in the novel.

Yes,I'm looking forward to the American edition.
