According to star Jeff Meek, he wanted the fighting and the violence on the show to always be seen as a last resort for the character. As Raven's philosophy of harmony and there is always a better way, is of course rooted in the ancient martial arts traditions themselves. "I always believed Raven felt he failed when he so often had to get physical. There was always a sense of loss when he was force to be confrontational." See more »
I was still very little when this show aired here in Europe, but even so, I still remember two shows me and my family were sort of addicted to : Sledge Hammer and Raven. Although not very alike, they were and are both icons of genius series in the 80's and 90's. I still remember the great scenery and atmosphere in Rave and the fights were exciting as ever, how else would a little guy like I was remember such a show clearly? The main characters were great developed and Raven himself had such a great mystery over him as a former member of the Black Dragons.
As mentioned by many people here before me, it's a pity that Raven (and sledge hammer too) had such a short lifespan. And while many shows are now re-released on DVD, Raven stays in the cold for no apparent reason, at least to me. Please release this show and make us happy :(
