Debi A. Monahan,
In this incarnation, The show revolves around CAINE and his son a cop. The series at time was inventive and fun, yet, was a modern incarnation. The original series was developed by BRUCE LEE and one of the WEINTRAUB'S and featured a pacifist who used violence as a last resort and never a pistol. The man a coolie drifter named Caine, walked the earth in search of adventure and doing good deeds. The second series had a TIBET feel to it which is fine since all writers have a different world view. The look of the show, was consistent with this and keeping with the oriental and confucsious tone of the original tv series. This was one of the former offerings of the PTEN line up through WARNER BROTHERS and ran in syndication for years. I have seen several and always liked KERMIT the ex spook cop and the friends the character played by CHRIS POTTER ran around with. Micheal Sloan is a writer who has written for several series I enjoyed, One was a MAN FROM UNCLE MOVIE circa 1983 and BATTLESTAR GALACTICA. I prefer the original but the newest incarnation was not too bad. It was an action hour and a popcorn and coke show.
