Two words: David Carradine. Purely due to the fact that he stars in this show, it scores major points. Throw in some good old fashioned kung fu action and you know you have something going for you, even if it isn't as good as the original. The original Kung Fu was brilliant. This show, set in modern times in the heart of the city, somehow seems slightly off. Yet, that doesn't stop it from being a highly memorable show. The kung fu, mystical aspects are always interesting, however, the portions of the storyline dealing with police work are always so so. Even the fight scenes revolving around the Peter Caine (Carradine's police officer son in the series) seem a little awkward and display certain level of cheese. Fortunately, anytime Carradine hits the screen he pulls the show back up into greatness.
My final review: If you want to see the best Kung Fu out there, check out the original as it is amazing. If you've already seen that and enjoyed it out, this is worth watching, as is any David Carradine production.
