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.

Although far from an avid viewer of this show,I did enjoy those episodes I did see.The shows were fairly fast moving with good action and chartacterisation for the most part and despite the fact that Carradine's martial arts 'skills' were still less than perfect to watch the show was still considerably better than the hoary original not least because it contained about ten times more fight action.The show is now dead and the franchise should be left that way but nevertheless its 90's incarnation offers more than enough excitement to those with an hour to kill in front of their living room screen.
