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).

Trivia

David Carradine developed the idea of the sequel series, the legend continues, for 12 years. There was a version offered to him in the 80s, but rejected it due to the violent premise deal too much with guns and car crashes. There was a bible of things that they avoided in the show like car crashes. See more »

Quotes

Peter Caine: [addressing his fellow officers after resigning] When I was a very young boy, my father came and told me that my mother had died. I ran to the pond to look for her reflection standing over me, but it wasn't there. And I learned to swim alone. As a cop, whenever I was in danger, I'd look for a reflection, and I'd always see one or all of you standing behind me. And that gave me the courage to go on. I'll be around. But if you ever need somebody, look for my reflection.

The best TV-series since "Magnum, P.I."
18 October 2000 | by Erkki_aka_MjollnirSee all my reviews

One of the local channels just started airing this less than a month ago. They show it every workday night. I fully agree with the first comment here (by anonymous, 27 October 1998). At first, I thought it was lame, but after I had watched 1 or 2 episodes, I really began to like it and now I watch it every day if I have the chance. The most of all I like the character of Kwai Chang Caine. When fighting, he uses minimum violence to defeat his opponents, never kills them (at least I haven't seen it yet). He is kind and wise etc. I haven't seen the original series or the movies, but his character makes me want to see these too.

This IS one of the (very few) best series since "Magnum, P.I.", in my humble opinion. The similarity between Magnum and Kung Fu: TLC is that while both deal with action and fighting bad guys, their real focus is on human relations, friendship etc. And more - in Magnum, Tom Selleck fit the role so perfectly, that it was hard to believe this was acting. I think it is also true with David Carradine.
