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).

Kung Fu: The Legend Continues balanaces fast-paced action with heart.
27 October 1998 | by See all my reviews

I never thought I would like Kung Fu: The Legend Continues. Before I watched the series, my impression of the show was of a father and son fighting team that found new people to beat up every week. I admit, to my chagrin, that was my picture of 'martial arts' shows.

Then, by accident, I caught part of an episode where the father and son were hugging each other and the son was teary-eyed. Apparently, the son's mother died many years ago. I was drawn into the program, surprised to see this candid, emotional moment on screen. This was not what I expected.

After viewing a few more episodes, I became a true admirerer of Kung Fu: The Legend Continues. The father, Caine and his son, Peter, had been separated for 15 years thinking each other dead. The large story arc traces their road to reconciliation. While the two must struggle to understand each other and make amends for past grievances, there are external obstacles mirroring their inner obstacles. Through this turmoil, the show balances fast-paced action with heart, humanity, healing and a helping of humor.

I also admire the way the show deals with violence. In the earlier episodes, Peter commonly used a gun in a dangerous situation while his father, Caine, tried to disarm hostiles without killing them. As the show progresses, Peter learns there is "another way" to deal with a dangerous situation than to go for a gun.

Kung Fu: The Legend Continues is a magical show with a positive, yet not syrupy, message of hope in the face of adversity. Here's hoping that the legacy of the Legend Continues.
