Well, Xiaolin Chronicles is finally upon us. I will be reviewing each episode as they come out and giving you my thoughts on them, and you can leave your opinion in the comments or in the forums. This is the review of the first episode: New Monk on the Block. Since it was known beforehand that this show would have many changes, this review will be split in two parts. The first part will be about all the changes to the show in general, and the second part will be about this specific episode.

LevenThumps continues the countdown towards Xiaolin Chronicles by reviewing the ninth favorite episode of Xiaolin Showdown:Finding Omi.
Season 2 of Xiaolin Showdown left fans with a very big cliff hanger. Wuya is brought back to life, Omi is on the side of evil, Omi is turned into one of Chase’s cats, Jack is on the side of good, and the world has been split in half. This conclusion to the Omi arc started by Chase Young had a lot to live up to, and it certainly paid off.

Welcome to the first Xiaolin Showdown Episode Review to countdown towards Xiaolin Chronicles. These are reviews of the wiki’s top ten favorite Xiaolin Showdown Episodes. Today, we start with number ten on the list: The Demon Seed.

The news that you've all been waiting for is now starting to leak in. A channel that the show will air on in America has finally been announced, and a release date window has possibily been narrowed down.
First, let's talk about what is for certain.- C21 Media link
Secondly, a release date window has been given for the show in France. According to the article below, the show will start sometime in September. Since the show is being made with English actors, and the show would be completed in full in English before it would be completed in French, I think it would be probable that the American/Canadian/UK release date is around this time as well.link
What do you think of this news? Are you glad that the information is finally starting t…Read more >
