This is On Second Watch, and we’re talkin' to whoever's listenin' out there. Hop aboard the Pork Chop Express as we take a wild ride with John Carpenter’s 1986 cult classic, “Big Trouble in Little China”. Staring Kurt Russell, Kim Cattrall, James Hong, and the one and only Gerald Okamura, who joins us for a great interview about his experience with this film.



Surprising no one, Dana has never seen this movie, and it was a whirlwind of emotions. Tim and Chris lost respect for one another, and Spaz was too busy getting push notifications on his phone. Does this cult classic still reign as one of the kings of all cult classics? Just do what ol’ Jack Burton would do and listen to On Second Watch.
