Kung Fu

Wikipedia

In the late 19th century, Kwai Chang Caine (David Carradine) is the orphaned son of an American man and a Chinese woman. He has been raised in the Shaolin monastery, and trained by the monks to be a Shaolin master.

Master Po (left) and Kwai Chang Caine (right) in a flashback from the episode "Dark Angel", written by Herman MillerIn the pilot episode, Caine’s mentor and elder, Master Po, is murdered by the Chinese emperor's nephew, and Caine retaliates by killing the nephew. In order to avoid execution for the nephew's killing, Caine flees from China to western America, where he seeks to find his half-brother, Danny Caine.

Although it is his intention to find Danny while avoiding notice, Caine's training as a priest has instilled in him a sense of social responsibility, forcing him to repeatedly come out into the open to fight for justice. After each such encounter, he is compelled to leave to stay ahead of the emperor's assassins.

The frequent use of flashbacks is used to recall specific lessons during Caine's childhood training in the monastery by his teachers, the blind Master Po (Keye Luke) and Master Kan (Philip Ahn). Part of the appeal of the series was undoubtedly the emphasis laid, via the flashbacks, on the mental and spiritual power that Caine had gained from his rigorous training. In these flashbacks, Master Po calls his young student "Grasshopper" to remind him of how much he still had to learn.
