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). Written by

[after Kwai Chang has started teaching a new student]
What more can you teach him?
Kwai Chang Caine:
All right. Forget I asked.
Kwai Chang Caine:
No. You misunderstand. In his rush to master the "how", the technique. He has brushed past, or forgotten the "why," the meaning.

The show was great and with a great cast led by David Carradine and Chris Potter and a great supporting cast. The show wasn't about just martial arts and kicking the bad guys. But also on how you can handle situations without killing people and bringing them to justice. Peter who usually handles his situations with a gun learns the kung fu way throughout the show while Kwai Chang Caine tries to teach him those ways. After fifteen years apart, the father and son come together. As they must slowly but surely try to get along and work out their differences but other than that, they still show a love for one another. Great show and hope it comes back on. As I hope and pray that since TNT doesn't no longer have the show, hopefully it will come on like the Sci-Fi channel as it does employ some science fiction stuff.
