I really didn't know what to expect when i started watching this show and was a little apprehensive, but am an admirer of Bruce Lee. When i found out his daughter was involved i couldn't resist. Wow...what a pleasant surprise.
I dont follow many shows, only a few. The Expanse, The Mandalorian and Westworld. All of them fantastic shows, especially Westworld but back to the Warrior. I wasn't really sure i was i the mood to get into a Kung-Fu show. As much as i like the franchise. It just didn't feel appealing right now so i kept going past it until, like i said i realized Shannon Lee was behind it and it was based on her Dad's own ideas.
If god came down from the heavens two weeks ago and told me he was going to strand me on a deserted island and i could only take one tv show with me, i would have said Westworld without hesitation. Now...I dont know. On any given day This show may come with me instead. Luckily god hasn't come looking for me so I can still enjoy both.
This show is so good i could not stop watching the episodes. I dont have much free time except Saturday night. I like to savor my media and not watch it all at once and spread it out over a few weeks. As hard as i tried i ended up staying up until 3AM because i HAD to find out what happens in the next episode. Season 1 was absolutely fantastic, season 2 was even better.
The actors and acting is absolutely superb. You love/hate every one of them at different times. They are complex. You may hate one of them, but as time goes on and their personalities and motives revealed, come to love them, and vice-versa. The story is simple but complicated and complex in its details. Life is never really black and white, and the intricacies in the grey area we truly live in are nicely captured. Really, really good writing.
We are so lucky. I think we live in a time that is truly the golden age of tv. The writing, acting, talent, set design is absolutely amazing on so many shows, on so many levels. This one is no exception.
Congratulations Shannon and all the actors, writers, designers and crew. I think Bruce Lee (your Dad) would be ecstatic with the results. Anyone reading this review. If you havn't figured it out by now, i very highly recommend watching it.
