Quotes

Li Sung: So many nights I wondered how you were, where you were. And then, after so much time, we receive your phone call. Do you believe such things are a part of our destiny, David?
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Perhaps. I do know that nothing that I've tried has succeeded in helping me control my problem. I came closer with your teachings then ever before.
Li Sung: Then we must begin your training at once. Tonight.
Dr. David Bruce Banner: Something wrong, Li Sung?
Li Sung: Time is our greatest alley, and our worst enemy.

The Pupil
19 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

David Banner(Bill Bixby) returns to San Francisco to re-unite with his friend Li Sung(played by Mako, who appeared in 'Another Path') He is sad to learn that Li Sung is now gravely ill, and before he passes, wants to entrust the leadership of his school to his star pupil Mike Roark(played by Rick Springfield) who is also a police officer, and conflicted over his teachings and his law enforcer career, as both his brother and father are also policemen. When a criminal fugitive becomes the target of dogged police pursuit, Mike must make his choice soon as Li Sung will not live much longer... Reasonably good sequel to 'Another Path' isn't as compelling, but still maintains interest. Gerald McRaney makes his third series appearance as yet another character!
