2 part storyline closes out the second season
13 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

The second season ends with a 2 part storyline that boldly crosses back and forth between the American West and Imperial China (no flashbacks at the temple, and no Keye Luke or Philip Ahn). Stefan Gierasch plays a role in each tale, a madman named Logan McBurney in America, and a warlord named Kai Tong in China. McBurney wants to transport his beloved Anna to an Indian burial ground, revealing that he had hanged her seven years earlier. Kai Tong covets the beautiful Mayli Ho (Nancy Kwan), concubine of the Emperor, but is opposed by Kwai Chang Caine, now a Shaolin monk, having only left the temple the month before. Mayli Ho captivates the naive monk, becoming his first lover, which is easily the greatest aspect of this entry. Gierasch is fine as Kai Tong, but hams up his annoying McBurney, overburdened with a Scottish burr that leaves much of his dialogue unintelligible. The lovely Nancy Kwan was perhaps the greatest Asian star to appear on KUNG FU, and her performance provides some much needed class to the proceedings. The producers were getting bored with the West, and this was an attempt to broaden the series' appeal, leading to certain third season episodes being set entirely in China. Michael Pataki is sadly underused as a gold thief who steals a Gatling gun, and Milton Parsons, another veteran of the Charlie Chan films, turns up as the reverend who recognizes McBurney. In my opinion, this was one of the few duds during three sterling seasons.
