Storyline

13 episodes of this syndicated show were produced in 1994 and 1995 and first aired in January 1995. Jian-Wa comes to America from Beijing with his brother Wago to find freedom. Wago, who is hot-headed, falls in with a gang and he and two federal agents are murdered. Jian-Wa is determined to find the culprits who are lead by the mysterious "The General" a Vietnamese who is making millions of dollars. Compounding the problem, Federal Agent Sandler is pursuing Jian-Wa because he thinks Jian-Wa killed the agents; Agent Phillips, who works for Sandler, is keeping an open mind about Jian-Wa's guilt or innocence.

No will behind the show
30 April 2008 | by See all my reviews

I love the show immensely; however, I hate it when it was canceled. The same company that produce the Xena TV show starring Lucy Lawless and the Hercules TV show starring Kevin Sorbo did not put the same kind of financial and political will into the Vanishing Son series.

That show could have been the biggest breakout career for Russell Wong and could have him gotten more TV roles and even appearing in the movies. The last time I saw Mr. Wong was on some short live TV show where was a guess star where he play a reporter on one show, and another show where he play a prosecutor. Another one show I saw him was on CSI where he was a Los Vegas Lieutenant working at the jail.
