Storyline

Kwai Chang Caine was a priest at a Shaolin temple, where his son Peter also lived and studied. The temple was destroyed and father and son each thought the other had perished in the fire. For many years, Kwai Chang 'walked the earth,' while Peter became a big-city cop. Finally, they are reunited and now together they battle evil, using wisdom, martial arts, and occasionally even Peter's service pistol (only as a last resort).

Quotes

Peter Caine: [addressing his fellow officers after resigning] When I was a very young boy, my father came and told me that my mother had died. I ran to the pond to look for her reflection standing over me, but it wasn't there. And I learned to swim alone. As a cop, whenever I was in danger, I'd look for a reflection, and I'd always see one or all of you standing behind me. And that gave me the courage to go on. I'll be around. But if you ever need somebody, look for my reflection.

Surprisingly Good
17 March 1999 | by GislefSee all my reviews

Despite a somewhat limited run in first-run syndication, Kung Fu seems to have found its niche as a TNT staple. It's basically the original series updated for the 90's - no surprise there. Still, I like any show that has a huge supporting cast that get their moments to shine & a strong sense of continuity, and KF has it in spades. There's enough fighting to satisfy the less intellectual, but some decent plotting and storylines for those looking for more. It also has a very clear beginning, middle, and end, making it more of a "saga" without a full-fledged Babylon 5-like "arc." And Scott Wentworth as Kermit is one of the coolest characters on TV - he should have gotten his own spin-off series.

The family theme was also interesting, particularly the interaction between the unsung Robert Lansing, Peter's adopted father, and David Carradine. Unfortunately, Lansing's death from cancer put an end to that, but his memory lived on.

Overall, a highly entertaining show. I'd recommend catching it if you can, but you really need to start from the beginning.
