5.0 out of 5 stars A Cult Classic, November 6, 2004
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Kung Fu: Season 2 (DVD)
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!

Having studied Kung Fu with a Shaolin monk I can tell you the series gets it right more than people realize. Although the sayings are more Taoist than Ch'an (Zen), the teachings as well as the character of the monks and actions of Caine are very Ch'an Buddhist. The irony is that what this series portrayed is much closer to authentic Shaolin than what is coming out of the reconstituted temples in China today.
