The Brothers Sun (Netflix) S: Michelle Yeoh, Justin Chien - premieres 1/4/24



When the head of a powerful Taiwanese triad is shot by a mysterious assassin, his eldest son, legendary killer Charles “Chairleg” Sun (Justin Chien) heads to Los Angeles to protect his mother, Eileen (Michelle Yeoh), and his naive younger brother, Bruce (Sam Song Li) — who’s been completely sheltered from the truth of his family until now.

But as Taipei’s deadliest societies and a new rising faction go head-to-head for dominance — Charles, Bruce and their mother must heal the wounds caused by their separation and figure out what brotherhood and family truly mean before one of their countless enemies kills them all. An action-packed comedy and family drama, THE BROTHERS SUN is created by Brad Falchuk and Byron Wu. The Brothers Sun comes to Netflix January 4th, 2024.
Yes, please!

That looks awesome and it’s coming in less than a month. Man, so much stuff to watch in 2024.

1st time seeing Michelle Yeoh as a villain since Strike Back. Or in this case an anti hero.

Wasn't she villain-ish on Star Trek Disco?

Yeah, but she still was helping the heroes.

Strike Back she was a terrorist and killer. Here she appears to be the matriarch of a crime family.

Stumbled upon this show yesterday and decided to check if there is a thread here. Right from the very first episode, it's a whole lot of fun. I hope the rest of the season manages to keep the momentum of the pilot going.

After burning through the first five episodes, I had to take a break due to work. Finally getting around to the sixth episode and all I gotta say is

Watched the pilot the other night and agree! I think I enjoyed it a lot more than the wife, so may need to find time to finish it myself.

Dammit. From

her very first appearance, I just knew Grace was going to be revealed to be in league with the Boxers. She was just too perfect.
I gotta say that I love how the reveal happens in what in any other show would be a filler episode.

Shame. This is just one of many new streaming shows I just haven’t gotten around to yet. I wanted to see it for Michelle Yeoh.

I’m sure it’s not even a complete story either.

The ending left room to continue the story, but it's definitely a complete story arc. Don't skip it, unless you're not really interested.

Appreciate the tip. I'll try to get around to it relatively soon and glad it's not an incomplete story.

I don't think Netflix does themselves any favors to cancel so early. I would think they would want to see if it grows...

For someone like me for them to announce so early it is cancelled makes me think the show sucks and I shouldn't bother with it. Although most of what I have read on it is positive.

Nice to know is does not end and not a cliffhanger. This one drops to the way bottom of the list to watch for now.
