This week, we introduce brand new, super sexy special guest Matthew ‘Tepi’ Mclaughlin to help us review, “Raging Bull” style, 2002’s Tongan Ninja. We also have a discussion on the descent of the home-viewing experience, from the mighty Tesco bargain bin to the market-obsessed streaming service. As requested by Tepi himself, please click here for your daily dose of Tongan Ninja.
