Added DiffLines:

* IronyAsSheIsCast: David Carradine had no formal martial arts training of any sort. He had received some training as a dancer when he was younger.
* RealLifeRelative: In several episodes, a younger Kwai Chang Caine was played by Creator/KeithCarradine, David Carradine's younger brother. Their other brother Robert Carradine and their father Creator/JohnCarradine also appeared in episodes (as Sonny Jim and Serenity Johnson, respectively).
* RecycledSet: The set for the Shaolin Temple was originally a set used for ''Film/{{Camelot}}'' that was inexpensively and effectively converted for the Chinese setting.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Creator/BruceLee was supposed to star as Caine, but the networks were unsure about casting an Asian actor.
* WorkingTitle: ''The Warrior''.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Imagine BruceLee as Caine; he helped develop the series, but America was not ready for a Chinese person to play a Chinese character (Bruce already appeared as Kato on ''Franchise/TheGreenHornet'', but he was regularly asked to "keep his mask on", which he denied).
