Kwai Chang Caine was a priest at a Shaolin temple, where his son Peter also lived and studied. The temple was destroyed and father and son each thought the other had perished in the fire. For many years, Kwai Chang 'walked the earth,' while Peter became a big-city cop. Finally, they are reunited and now together they battle evil, using wisdom, martial arts, and occasionally even Peter's service pistol (only as a last resort).Written by

David Carradine considered himself an evangelist of shaolin kung fu. The abbot of the temple fictionalized in the show said Carradine had made great strides toward bringing awareness about shaolin ways of peace. See more »
I stumbled across KF:TLC quite accidently and was pleasantly surprised at what I originally thought would be your usual shoot 'em up type show. Instead what I found was a show that explored a father/son relationship in ways I hadn't seen done. Chris Potter is excellent as Peter Caine...I found myself instantly drawn to the character and able to relate to his conflicting emotions about the return of his father. Peter Caine is the character that kept me watching the show week after week and the show was blessed with a good supporting cast as well.
