The title of this rather new age western is misleading. It suggests a chop-socky orgy, but it is nothing of the sort. It was a highly intelligent, human drama, what I call a road show, because the main character was constantly traveling, in his case to avoid bounty hunters, and using his martial arts skills only as a last resort.The kung fu was really only a bit player.
In the Bruce Lee biopic it is suggested that Lee was the one who came up with the concept of the series and wanted to star in it, but the producers thought it would be better to have a Caucasian play the lead. That is unfortunate, but that is not to detract from David Carradine's excellent performance. I'm considering purchasing the first season DVD release. It would be nice if it had a special feature that would shed some light on Lee's involvement with the the series' origin.
