Radames Pera is the focus in entry directed by David Carradine
21 August 2010 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

Season 3 Episode 9- When David Carradine expressed an interest in directing an episode of KUNG FU, he was given a script that no one else wanted to handle, and the results were good enough for him to be given two more to direct. Here, instead of a Western story embellished with flashbacks of the temple in China, we have a story set in China with flashes forward to the American West, a disappointingly uninteresting hallucination by the adult Caine, confronted by an Aztec Priest (Michael Greene, previously seen in "Chains"). It is the student Caine, as played so well by Radames Pera, who is allowed to command our attention, as well as Brian Tochi, in his third and final appearance on the show (from "The Tide" and "The Stone"), playing Shen Ung, arrogant son of a dying mandarin (Victor Sen Yung), who secretly poisons the Shaolin youth to study his reactions, using his father's impending death as an excuse for his actions. For the first and only time in the entire series, Philip Ahn as Master Kan becomes a man of action when he realizes what has befallen his favorite pupil. There would be five forthcoming adventures set entirely in China, beginning with "The Devil's Champion." It's always a pleasure to see Charlie Chan veteran Victor Sen Yung (also BONANZA's Hop Sing), who would again be directed by Carradine in "Besieged: Death on Cold Mountain" and "Besieged: Cannon at the Gates." Apart from KUNG FU, Carradine's directorial efforts were all rarely seen family projects involving his acting brothers, but none with father John Carradine. Next up- "The Devil's Champion"
