    Though lasting for one short season, this show improves episode by episode. This is one of two standout shows.



    Fantastic work by the supporting cast as Wende Wagner really shows off her acting chops as Lenore Case, a rare moment in the show which usually relegates her to the background.



    Bruce Lee uses every brief scene he has to humanize Kato, as this is the only show I've actually seen him smile. The only way they could have improved it is with a scene recreating the Keye Luke/Gordon Jones chemistry. Reid did after all save Kato's life when they first met.



    Even the D.A. and the chief of police have an excellent scene. In terms of standard crime drama, this is way up there, and I believe this show set the bar for superhero shows to follow.moreless
