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).

Trivia

David Carradine developed the idea of the sequel series, the legend continues, for 12 years. There was a version offered to him in the 80s, but rejected it due to the violent premise deal too much with guns and car crashes. There was a bible of things that they avoided in the show like car crashes. See more »

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.

Enjoyable show with good leads
5 April 1999 | by See all my reviews

I stumbled across KF:TLC quite accidently and was pleasantly surprised at what I originally thought would be your usual shoot 'em up type show. Instead what I found was a show that explored a father/son relationship in ways I hadn't seen done. Chris Potter is excellent as Peter Caine...I found myself instantly drawn to the character and able to relate to his conflicting emotions about the return of his father. Peter Caine is the character that kept me watching the show week after week and the show was blessed with a good supporting cast as well.
