Editorial Reviews

He is a man of peace in a violent land. He is Kwai Chang Caine, schooled in the spirit-mind-body ways of the Shaolin priesthood by the blind avuncular Master Po and the stern, yet loving, Master Kan. Caine speaks softly but he hits hard. He lives humbly, yet knows great contentment. He is the Old West's most unusual hero.

5.0 out of 5 stars Snatch the pebble from my hand... May 15, 2005
Format:DVD
The third and final series of the greatest show of the '70's is coming! David Carradine unexpectedly walked out of the show at the end of this season, he's a man of many interests so he couldn't be tied down to the one show for too long. At least we have close to a hundred episodes of this tv classic as his legacy. These final episodes are:

1. "Cry of the Night Beast" (Prod #166251) October 19, 1974 - Caine hears a baby buffalo crying (supernaturally) and stops a hunter from killing its mother. But when mother and baby get separated, Caine must find a way to keep the baby alive until he can reunite them. This is connected in flashbacks to a connection the young Caine felt with an unborn baby.

2. "My Brother, My Executioner" (Prod #166252) October 12, 1974 - Caine tracks down Danny but doesn't get the kind of reception he expected from his brother. Soon thereafter a gunfighter arrives saying that this Danny Caine had been a very fast gunfighter with a different name just three years previously and he wants to see which one of them is faster.

3. "The Valley of Terror" (Prod #166253) September 28, 1974 - When Caine learns a young woman has visions of the signs of the dragon and the tiger that are burnt on his arms, he rescues her from those who are trying to return her to an insane asylum.

4. "A Small Beheading" (Prod #166254) September 21, 1974 - While he is working for a woman on a ranch near a coastal town, a sea captain (married to the sister of the Emperor's*1* nephew, whom Caine killed) delivers to Caine a pardon if he returns to China. The catch, according to the captain, is that Caine must allow the 'beheading' of the little finger of his right hand.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Full Circle" for Caine as "Kung Fu" ends August 21, 2005
Format:DVD
Not every actor can walk away from a series at the height of its popularity. David Carradine walked off the set of the final episode of the 3rd season of "Kung Fu" and elected not to return for a variety of reasons. The series acted as a spring board for Carradine boosting him to roles such as Woody Gutherie in "Bound for Glory". This the third season of the series (and the last for the original series...we won't talk about the bad sequel series Carradine starred in during the 90's) allowed a sense of closure; Caine discovers the whereabouts of his half brother and is able to move into a new phase of his life during the last season.

Another excellent series of transfers from Warner Home Video demonstrates why Warner continues to set the pace when it comes to major studios releasing TV shows on DVD. Unlike Universal's releases ("McCloud", "Night Gallery") from the same time frame, "Kung Fu" actually comes with extras and has a superior transfer. There are occasional analog artifacts that probably occurred on the original negative or during the initial duping process otherwise the image quality of this terrific transfer. Not surprisingly most of the analog artifacts like dirt and hair are visible during the title sequence which was duplicated quite a few times. Likewise most of the issues with grain, color shift and other issues are during the title sequence. Colors are bright and vivid with the image quality being sharp for the most part. Occasionally the image does soften a bit but, on the whole, this is a superb job from Warner. As many fans of the series are aware Warner initially released the first season of "Kung Fu" in a 1.78:1 aspect ratio increasing the image are at the sides at the lopping off the images at the top and bottom.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor follow-up to Greatness Grasshoper May 20, 2006
Format:DVD
Season 1 and 2 are truly excellent representations of what television can be. Caine is rational man in an irrational world, purposeful & heroic. Sadly, the 3rd series becomes extremely mystical and delves into large amounts of superstition & pseudo-psycho babble. Gone are the profound stories dealing with racism, family, art, life, death, etc. They are replaced with ghosts, 2nd sight, an over indulgence in the past, and a general decline in the quality of the stories & themes. I still bought it and will finish the series but this set can't hold a candle to the first 2.

3.0 out of 5 stars Now I remember... September 11, 2005
Format:DVD
I was an avid fan of Kung Fu when it hit the airwaves in the early 70s. I watched it faithfully for a while, but then lost interest just before it went off the air. I hadn't thought about it in years, but now I remember why: my interest in the show was proportional to its quality. The first two seasons of Kung Fu were marvelous, and--for early-70s TV anyway--were well made and fun to watch. This DVD set reminds me about why I stopped watching the original series during its third season--it isn't that the production values are all that bad, it's just that the show experienced a noticable shift in its focus, and that focus went from a fairly credible format to one of truly unbelievable fantasy.

I still wonder who or what was responsible for this sudden shift from martial arts and western cowboys to ghosts, demons, and unrelenting mysticism. And it was a very sudden shift--see it for yourself by watching the first two seasons and then watching this third one. With the third season came this odd obsession with mystical powers, demons and spirits, and fantastic premises that abandoned all contact with reality. Given the way the show changed its focus like it did, it's probably just as well that the third season was its last--at least this way it died with much of its dignity intact.

The episodes (way too many of them) that were set in China were a big disappointment too. The show was a huge success because of the contrast between Caine's deep Eastern philosophies and the rough and tumble simplicity of the old west, and also because of the appeal of seeing a good, soft-spoken, decent person get the best of the bad guys after being underestimated by bullies and bigots.
