  • Kung Fu: The Complete First Season

    Kung Fu: The Complete First Season is being released on DVD next week. I'm not sure if any of you are fans because I'm still getting to know you all but I grew up watching this show and it remains one of my all-time favorites. I just wanted to give everyone a heads up.

    Young Caine: You cannot see.
    Master Po: You think I cannot see?
    Young Caine: Of all things, to live in darkness must be worst.
    Master Po: Fear is the only darkness.

    Master Po: [after easily defeating the boy in combat] Ha ha, never assume because a man has no eyes he cannot see. Close your eyes. What do you hear?
    Young Caine: I hear the water, I hear the birds.
    Master Po: Do you hear your own heartbeat?
    Young Caine: No.
    Master Po: Do you hear the grasshopper that is at your feet?
    Young Caine: [looking down and seeing the insect] Old man, how is it that you hear these things?
    Master Po: Young man, how is it that you do not?

    Master Kan: Quickly as you can, snatch the pebble from my hand.
    [Young Caine tries to do so and fails.]
    Master Kan: When you can take the pebble from my hand, it will be time for you to leave.
    You know his brother was Louis Skolnick right?

      Of course! I'm pretty sure he appears in one of the episodes.

        Damn. I thought this was "The Legend Continues."
        When you say to your neighbor, "We're having a loud party on Saturday night if that's alright with you," what you really mean is, "We're having a loud party on Saturday night."

          You realise the Bruce Lee first pitched this idea...studios loved the idea..but not with a Chinese leading man...

          Pretty ironic that a white guy is the lead in a Kung Fu series...

          It isnt even Kung Fu...it's Gong Fu....

          Carradine is a DIK!!

          Long live Bruce Lee!!!!!

                Yeah, the producers felt that America wasn't ready for an Asian leading man yet, especially in light of Vietnam. So they made the leading character half American (white), half Chinese.

                And while I was a fan of Bruce Lee, I really couldn't see him playing the role of Caine as well as David Carradine did. When I see Lee, I see rage and fury and I never saw anything to suggest that he could play the role of a drifter who uses philosophy, peace, and gentleness as tools in his every day life.

                Carradine became Caine. I don't think Lee ever could have done that.
