Cast list is not available.

A modern adaptation of the 1970s drama of the same name.

Nicky is a young Chinese-American woman who decides to drop out of college and embark on a life-altering journey to an isolated monastery in China.

But when she returns home to San Francisco, she finds that it has become overrun by crime and corruption, with her own parents at the mercy of a powerful triad.

With help from her family and friends, Nicky uses her martial arts training and Shaolin values to protect her community and bring criminals to justice - all while searching for the ruthless assassin who killed her mentor and is now coming after her.

Today, I decided to no longer record this series. It just wasn't of enough interest for my liking. Sorry.

Keep politics and hate issues out of tv shows. One hears more than enough through the media. The point of entertainment is to get away from real life and relax. My political views are my own, I do not need to have yours shoved down my throat. Not big on love interest crap either.

Congratulations to the cast & crew for getting OK'd for its 2nd season. I've since down-voted to a "2" as I'm not particularly interested in the on-going story-lines of searching-for-sword; looking-out-for-adversary; possible-love-interest.

I suppose I'm just not a big CW fan as I'm also not liking "Walker" and "The Outpost". I've already stopped watching the DC Universe shows and "Pandora". It's likely I'm just watching these three CW shows still as there's nothing else on of interest to me right now.

Absolute garbage show. I tried to stick in there hoping it was good, but was full out when it hit the Black Lives Matter crap. Ridiculous political brainwashing and anti-police rhetoric. Everyone’s lives matter, including the police. It’s sickening how everyone with camera thinks forcing their identity politics on everyone is what we want. They’re worse than religious nuts going door to door trying to force beliefs down your throat. Wake the fuck up! If I’m watching a goddamn movie or TV show, I didn’t come there to sit through a fucking political sermon. I don’t care what your fucking politics are and I don’t need to be told what to think and how to think. Fuck off!! I’m so sick of this shit. It’s literally everywhere you turn. I must’ve blocked five or six news feeds to try to get away from it, and no I have to sit through that shit on TV. What someone should do, is open up production studios that do movies and TV that don’t force feed people political agendas. It’s out of control.

Liked it up until episode 5. Then the politics and blm had to be brought into the show.
Keep the politics out of the the show.

I've actually down-voted my rating to a "3" from the "4" I'd initially rated the series. I realize it's the CW and seems targeted for a younger audience with the earliest prime-time slot.

I suppose I wish the series to be a bit darker & harsher, as Warrior was and hopefully will be upon its return or like The Nevers is.

I don't know why they called this show Kung-Fu, it was nothing like the original, and like so many others said before me it had none of the spirit of the original which made it so special. Any show can have combat between characters but what made the original so special was how Cain approached situations and life.

“Most of the people here should rewatch the original show, they apparently have completely forgotten its spirit…” - ahhhhhh, I’m the only one who mentioned anything possibly related to the spirit of the original show unless you are insinuating the original show was fully woke garbage.

Pray tell what you think the spirit of the original show was that most didn’t remember or even pretend to remember if they forgot.

I rated this a "4" (over the 2.7 average rating at the time of this writing). Do note I'm a tough grader. As the series goes on, I may increase my rating.
Likes: attractive cast; most/many/all Asian/Chinese; fighting seens fairly exciting/quick/fast/acrobatic (unlike the D. Carradine series); no phony accents. I think I've only seen and heard of Tzi Ma (the father) before now.

Dislikes: this 1st episode seemed overly complicated and mixed in a bit too much for merely an hour-long showing (enrolling in a temple; temple life/death; arriving in San Francisco just in time to combat life/death issues). I think a two-hour or two-part initiation to the character would have been better.

Other. It's nice to see San Francisco in the background, but business-wise, likely filmed in Canada. Calif./USA/San Francisco; I suspect would be too costly/prohibitive to succeed in a new CW tv-series. ("Warrior", a cancelled series, was filmed in South Africa, as I recall, but set in old San Francisco.)

Special redundant mention of the two sisters being very attractive (to me they're new faces who I'd not previously seen).

Good luck to the series and CW. I'm already looking forward to the subsequent episodes. I'm sorry I can't binge-watch it from the start. I hope it gets extended or a 2nd season soon.
