A Twenty-Minute Documentary About the Gender of Final Fight's Poison

Reader Andrew points us towards this documentary. Which goes for twenty minutes. And which is entirely about the seemingly endless debate over the gender of Final Fight's Poison.


While it gets a little "high school paper" in parts, and is something we've pondered over once or twice ourselves, it's still a fairly interesting watch, if only for the fact it's got enough footage and discussion to go for twenty minutes.
