Karate kid and cop team up to fight crime.
25 February 2000 | by jaybabbSee all my reviews

This TV series is a very entertaining crime drama set in southern California. It's Main characters are: "The Last Electric Knight" AKA "Ernie Lee"(Ernie Reyes, Jr.), "Jake Rizzo"(Gil Gerard).

Rizzo is a cop and Ernie is a karate kid-together, they take on crooks. It also has important lessons about life. It promotes respect for our elders.

As with all TV series however, some of the episodes are better than others. The best thing about this series is the martial arts talents of Ernie Reyes, Jr. He is one of the most talented martial artists I've seen who is so young.

This series only went for one season-and has been rarely seen, but for those of us who had the opportunity to see this series, know what a treat it is.
