I saw this series almost 40 years after it was released, but its excellence made the viewing experience timeless. David Carradine plays the immigrant drifter Caine, who walks through the Wild West encountering different situations, people, etc, there was a different plot for each episode. This was more a "Drama" than a "Western" but the interesting sparring moves and Caine's relaxed personality made it a decent alternative to the more violent and rowdy martial arts movies that released around that time. I was expecting to see a martial arts series in the wild west, but "Kung Fu" is its own genre. The teachings of Masters Po and Khan are wonderful and make you think about life.
