Campy, fun, touching and a little ahead of it's time
3 May 2004 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

"Kung Fu: The Legend Continues," followed the adventures of a father(Caine) and son(Peter) crime fighting team. When the show began, Caine a Shaolin Priest, and Peter a cop are reunited after a 15 years separation.

The show was full of interesting leading characters, lots of bad guys, Cool Kung-Fu moves, Eastern and Western Philosophy, and a touching and often comical father/son relationship.

The relationship between Caine and Peter was what made the show most enjoyable. It was interesting to see two very different types of characters get along, and come to terms with their pasts. Peter had been raised to about the age of 12 to be a Shaolin Priest by his father, but after being separated from him was sent to an orphanage, and later adopted by a family with very strong Western Values, and had given up everything his real father taught him. When Caine came back he helps Peter to remember his past and family legacy, which was very absorbing.

There's a lot of complaint that there was too much magic and mysticism in the show. In this way it was ahead of its time, as only a few years later shows like Buffy, Angel, and Charmed would become the norm and be widely accepted.

If looking for a light-hearted show with lots of action and endearing characters "Kung-Fu: The Legend Continues is a good choice.
