1. Kung Fu (1972–1975)
60 min | Adventure, Drama, Western
The adventures of a Shaolin Monk as he wanders the American West armed only with his skill in Kung Fu.
My number one favorite show growing up.As a kid David Carradine was my hero as a result of "Kung Fu". Always saying something deep and profound followed by kicking ass and takeing names. I even had a poster of him in my room. Today he is still my hero for going out the way he did, kudos for keeping it interesting. That being said i am glad it didnt happen during my childhood years when i was only afraid of finding monsters in my closet.

Was hooked on this show during high school. Helped me in finding my inner nerd. I even learned some klingon and looking back at that time now i probably have my obsession for this show to thank for not getting laid even once during those years
