5.0 out of 5 stars Kung Fu - The Complete Second Season November 24, 2004
Format:DVD
Caine, a Chinese-American immigrant, conflicts with a violent 1870's American West as he seeks a way of peace. The conflict that he feels within himself as a peaceful man who practices martial arts is portrayed excellently. The flashbacks that he has of conversations and lessons in a Shaolin temple are a glimpse into another world. An outstanding series.

The series has been criticized because Bruce Lee, an American actor of Chinese descent, was passed over in favor of an actor not of Chinese descent.

[...]
I've read that the extras are:
--Zen and Now: A Dinner with David Carradine & Friends featuring Carradine's Kill Bill co-stars Vivica A. Fox and Michael Madsen, Kung Fu series co-star Radames Pera and Technical Advisor Kam Yuen and more!
--David Carradine commentary tracks on 2 key episodes

The series is presented in the original aspect ration of 1.33:1, rather than the widescreen effect artifically created for Season 1. The running time is 1167 minutes and the soundtrack is the original 1.0 soundtrack. Reportedly, Closed Captioning and subtitles in English, French, and Spanish will be provided.

1. The Well: Caine drinks contaminated water and must rely on help from a reluctant ex-slave.
2. The Assassin gs: Dana Elcar: Caine gets in the middle of a life and death feud between two families.
3. The Chalice: A gold chalice must be return to the mission from which it was stolen.
4. El Brujo: A male witch casts a milicious spell that frightens everyone in a small town.
5. The Squawman: A farmer married to an Indian woman shoots the son of an outlaw.
6. The Spirit-Helper: Caine mentors an Indian boy who wants to rescue his kidnapped mother from the men who killed his father.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best seasons from classic 70's show January 21, 2005
Format:DVD
"Kung Fu" catapulted actor David Carradine to fame. He didn't even know it because he didn't have a TV and was living in what he describes as a "shack" (my guess is a very nice one) in Southern California according to the commentary track on "The Well". The classic 70's TV series had an impact on many kids (including this one) when it aired giving us our first taste of Kung Fu, eastern philosphy set in the wild west.

Carradine plays Cane a half Chinese Shaolin priest searching for his half brother Danny in America. On the run when he causes the death of a member of the royal Chinese court, Cane has a bounty on his head. The second season consists of 23 episodes and is presented in its original 1.33:1 full screen format (unlike season one which was cropped for a widescreen format of 1.78:1). The image quality is exceptionally crisp and clear with solid blacks and exceptionally good color given the fact that the series is over 30 years old. The images have been cleaned up and there's little in the way of dirt and hair to mar the images. The sophisticated storytelling in every episode feature a plot involving Cane as a man contrasted to Cane being trained at the Shaolin temple by his teachers. This unusual use of flashbacks as a "subplot" enriched and made the series unusual and memorable. This device hasn't been used in a series since and, while it could easily have become a gimmick, most of the writers and directors used it to compliment the more modern stories they were telling. With stunning cinematography and sharp direction that frequently used unusual camera angles, "Kung Fu" sadly only lasted three seasons (Carradine left when it became successful to pursue a film career).

The extras are particularly fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Cult Classic November 6, 2004
By Tsungen
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Only once, in cinematic and television history has one character ever been so completely different, original, believable and constant such as Kwai Chang Caine. The Temple Teachings from the famous flashback sequences are now a part of the american heritage, as Finally, East meets West and both philosophies complement each other as Humanity should; each and every regular character (actor) in this series could not possibly improve on their performances; actors, writers, directors, producers, all were at the top of their art during those memorable three years. David Caradine, Keye Luke and Philip Ahn have inspired me as a young man and will live on and inspire future generations thanks to their colossal performances. I am gratefull to Warner Brothers for having the guts to distribute this landmark series and to Amazon Com to offer it online!

5.0 out of 5 stars The evolution of Caine January 19, 2005
By Roderic
Format:DVD
Oddly, the second season seems more antiquated than the first, and relies more on dialogue and character development, than action to capture the audience's attention. It does this well. These episodes have a simplicity, innocence, and an uncanny way of drawing you into the sense of distant place and time. "The Brujo" is in my opinion one of the greatest episodes of the series, beautifully directed, acted, and with Carradine in top form. The contrast of Carradine in the special feature informal dinner chat, with Caine, confirms that Caine was a character that Carradine seem to channel, as evasive as the melancholy notes from his flute, the graceful and clumsy slow motion ballet, the simultaneously unfocused and penetrating vision. No episode stands alone. Each season gives us a chance to see that unique character in cinematic history, Caine, evolve, and it captures the imagination, is life affirming, and empowering.
