Wish I could find it on DVD
7 June 2008 | by peter-cyprianSee all my reviews

I loved the show, it was like a modern day "Kung-Fu" but different. Russell Wong's character was well written, his cause clear and his story made sense. The episodes were precluded by half a story narrated by Russell Wong (I believe it started with someone else narrating them, then Wong took over that part too)and closed with the second half. The one I remember and use often was: Two monks are walking along a path, an old monk and a young monk. The trail takes them to a river where it is shallow enough for them to wade across. Standing by the river is a young woman crying. When the old monk asks her why she is crying, she tells him that she needs to cross the river but is afraid to because she doesn't know how to swim. The old monk tells the woman to get on his back and carries her across. Once he's on the other side, he lets her down and the monks continue on their way. The young monk appears to be distressed and after about an hour of this, the old monk turns to the young monk and asks what is troubling him. The young monk asks the old monk why he carried the woman across the river. The old monk looks at the young monk and says "I left the woman at the river, how is it that you are still carrying her?".
