I've only watched the pilot and the first two episodes of season one but I am amazed by how well-written and acted the show is. Really fantastic Peckinpah-style editing, too.
Any other fans out there? If so, I'd love to hear about your episodes of KUNG FU or memories of watching it.

One of my favourite shows growing up, but I haven't bought the sets yet - too much great stuff to buy.:o My memory of KUNG FU is mainly that I had a deal with my grandparents to come and watch it every week at their place, because they got a colour TV before we did.:) I haven't seen it in ages, I'd like to again so probably should buy the DVDs despite the widescreen snafu.

I saw it many times as a kid, but I don't remember the show all that well. After being so impressed with Carradine's work in Kill Bill 2 (and bearing in mind that I like Carradine a great deal in general, thanks to the likes of Boxcar Bertha, Q The Winged Serpent and others), I had intended to pick up season one and check it out, but I never got around to it...

I remember seeing KUNG FU when it was a series on ABC, but was probably too young for it. I didn't truly learn to appreciate it until I saw reruns of it well into my 20's. It really walks that line of being familiar yet pleasingly different all at once, which really made it quite different from other tv shows. One of the things I've grown to love about KF, as well as many other 70's era shows like GUNSMOKE, is tuning in to see the incredible array of character actors that found work on the show. KF was blessed with John Carradine, William Shatner, William Smith, Albert Salmi, LQ Jones; just alot of cool people that make you sit up and take extra notice. I'm anxious to buy the second season...wasn't even aware it was out yet!

Previously I had no real interest in the series but a friend sent me the first season as a gift and I was immediately converted. It's truly a wonderful series. I've just got to gather some spare cash to get the second series. :)
