kung fu: the legend continues past TV show

TV show description:
In this spin-off of Kung Fu, Shaolin priest Kwai Chang Caine (David Carridine) presides over a temple in Northern California where he lives alone with his young son, Peter (Chris Potter).

The temple is destroyed by a fire that was started by one of Caine’s enemies who wanted to seize it. Father and son are lied to and believe that each other has been killed in the blaze. Caine travels away from California while Peter grows up in an orphanage and later studies to be a police officer.

Fifteen years later, Kung Fu master Caine arrives in Chinatown to assist with a case, the same one his detective son Peter has been assigned to. The two joyfully reunite and Caine then aids Peter on the various cases he’s given. But, as Caine regains his footing as a father, he learns that his son has different values than the teachings of the Shaolin. While Caine abhors violence, his son deems it a necessity to his job. As the two spend more time together, Peter begins to become attune to the wisdom of his father.

The series also features Peter’s boss, Lieutenant Paul Blaisdell (Robert Lansing), chief detective Frank Strenlich (William Dunlop), and Tyler Smith (Marla Schaffel), who shares a rocky relationship with Peter.

Canceled and renewed TV show

    Actually, it has been released on a “press by order basis” on the WBStore website. Official Warner Brothers release and not a bootleg. Is a bit pricey ($49 plus tax and freight), but a lot less than the $198 for the German version.

    Right now, only the first season is available; but if they get a lot of orders, I am certain they will release the other reasons on the same basis.

    This product right now is only available in the USA. Canada apparently is not included.

    You are WRONG! Season One has been released on DVD.. in Germany with original English version and dubbings as well as subtitles for French & German versions. As soon as I heard, several years ago, I snatched my copy on Amazon Germany for rock bottom price. They were on eBay.de as well but pricier. Now you can only find one copy… for $198! Good luck with that. Because you fans did not purchase and the sales figures were subpar, they are not releasing any more seasons. Contact Shout Factory and demand this show, they’re in biz for that and they have a CONTACT page with a drop box for DVD suggestions. The more write the more likely to see a release. Meanwhile I am enjoying my 10/10 sharp picture S1 that I got for $20!

    PS: German DVDs play on the French VLC player. Free download. No excuses not to buy, you don’t even have to change your DVD drive! VLC = region free. France rules!
