** In another first season episode, he and his partner have to get into a building that's surrounded by a high fence that's topped with razor wire. His partner asks if he's going to do some sort of crazy kung fu jump over the fence. Sammo gives him an incredulous look and asks if he's kidding. They find another way around the fence.

This 1999 show was largely inspired by the mid-90's Creator/JackieChan craze, and the fights scenes were in the same vein of being fast-paced and filled with "blink and you'll miss it" actions. Not coincidentally, Creator/SammoHung is also a long time friend of and frequent collaborator with Jackie. Sammo also had a noticeable brevity in speaking lines he spoke in English, due to a difficulty grasping the English language.
