Subject: Kung Fu: The Legend Continues

Written By: joeman on 06/05/09 at 10:49 am

Since David Carradine passed away, I figure I make this thread.  I used to watch this show(along with Highlander) with my parents, since my parents were a big fan of the original 70's series.  It was very interesting, especially seeing life of fighting monks.  What are your thoughts about the show?

Kung Fu: The Legend Continues was was a joint production between the US and Canada.  Being filmed in Toronto, the show used alot of Canadian actors (most notably Chris Potter, who played Caine's son) so it could receive funding through the Canadian Film and Video Tax Credit.

This was one of my favourite shows of the 90s, though until Carradine had passed away, I had totally forgotten about it.  To date, the show has not been released on DVD, but someday hopefully.  I will definately get it!

It was a syndicated show, and on the FOX affiliate I get, it aired on Sunday Afternoons along with other syndicated shows like 'The Pointman', 'Baywatch', 'American Gladiators' and 'Thunder in Paradise'.  Man, that was a great block of TV :)

Here's a bit of trivia for my fellow Canucks:  If you watched the show, remember Belinda Metz, who played Detective Jody Powell?

She is a former singer:  In 1985, had a popular hit in Canada called 'What About Me'.  Oh yeah, you remember it ...
