Well I've watched a few episodes, and I have to agree with Cord. However this is because they are trying to show martial arts to the people who know little more than the word "Karate" and the name "Bruce Lee". They can't make it too complicated or else the audience would loose interest.
However if anyone who reads this is looking for a more in depth look into the arts, this certainly isn't it. And the self defence tips in 5 seconds portitions are very weak. I also find that he doesn't spend enough time on one art to really give the viewers an idea of it (aside from its name). Maybe if he had made every episode dedicated to one martial art, it would be better (but again the general public would probably find that boring). And his chi power segments seemed a little hokey, having never trained with "chi power" as it were and I also don't believe in it like the chinese do. So naturally I was a little skeptical of his little tricks (guess you have to be there). Oh ya and he likes to break things to keep people interested
. But in the end it didn't seem like it was focusing on the fairy tales of the arts per say.
If anyone knows of a great tv series or documentary series that goes through different arts in alot more detail (for those of us with some knowledge in martial arts already), please let me know. This is what I'm looking for right now. Thanks.
