As old as I am, the Kung Fu tv series is still a little before my time. Amusing Fist of the North Star observation though.

And accurate, as FotNS clearly was heavily influenced by the Mad Max films, especially Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (Jagi's look is blatantly ripped off from Lord Humungus). I don't think Kenshiro is as heavily influenced by Bruce Lee, but there are nods to Lee in some of his poses, and his shrill cries.

Going off on a tangent, but a scene near the end of the original Mad Max film was also the inspiration for the horror movie, Saw.

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?

While I like the actor that played in Kung-Fu....dang Bruce would have bee sooooo much cooler. It would have been epic.
