Storyline

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).

Enlightening and Worthwhile
18 October 2006 | by engage2See all my reviews

This has to be one of the best shoes of its time. Kwai Chang Cain along with Raven and other martial arts weekly specials revolutionized television in the 90s. But this one in particular has more to it than fighting. Even today it has the same morals and lessons that you can use years later. Kung Fu the legend continues portrays the most touching themes between father and son, while adding some of the purest music of any show I've ever seen. The spirit of eastern philosophy is wrought throughout this series, despite what new challenges the duo face. For those of us who are not horror or violence enthusiasts, this show contains those elements in some of the occasional challenges the protagonists face, and it can end with a message or reflection on them. One such was the episode "The Possessed", where at the end Peter recalls to his father that he's never went up against anything like that, and the experience of going up against "real evil" to which he asks, "how'd we do?" to which Cain responds with a shrug of humility, "this time... we won." For those of you who also appreciate the art of reflection, there is a main reminiscence of the past in each episode that aids in the preparation or comprehension of some present event. The Shaolin Temple is shown to be the sanctuary from which the Cains developed their abilities and understanding of much more than can be found in society. Their memories of this are irreplaceable in the consistent survival of father and son, especially in the risky field of policing. It is mainly through his son's work that Kwai Chang Cain is able to track information on criminal activity and more. Sometimes, but less often, trouble finds its way to him.
