Overall series plot summary
In the late 19th century, Kwai Chang Caine (David Carradine) is the orphaned son of an American man and a Chinese woman. He was raised in a Shaolin monastery, and was 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 MillerHowever, when his mentor is murdered, Caine retaliated by killing the emperor's nephew, forcing him to flee China to escape execution. Caine ends up in the American Old West during which time he discovers that he has a half-brother, Danny.

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

The frequent use of flashbacks is used to recall particular lessons during Caine's training in the monastery while a child (Rad Pera) by his teachers, the blind Master Po (Keye Luke) and Master Kan (Philip Ahn). In these flashbacks, Master Po called his young student "Grasshopper" as a reference to their first meeting in which young Caine said that to be blind must be the worst affliction. Master Po drew attention to the grasshopper at his feet which the blind master could hear but to which Caine had been oblivious and so showed that the pupil still had much to learn.

I watched Kung Fu, and Mannix, and Cannon, Night Gallery, Mission Impossible, and Hawaii Five O, and all that stuff. Not much else to do back then. I think it was my fondness of Kung Fu that made me like David Carradine as bill in "Kill Bill"....
