It would be enough for the show to have decent fight scenes and rest on the mythic laurels of a long forgotten television pitch by the incomparable Bruce Lee. Warrior isn't satisfied with this, wanting to straddle the lines between martial arts, titillating gangster drama, gritty historical fiction, and cultural introspection. While it still has room for growth in each area, it's satisfying to see a show ambitious enough to want to do Bruce Lee's legacy proud. Don't sit on Warrior.
Excellent stories about struggles of immigrants living together in a foreign land. Still true today is the struggle to live, struggle against poverty and discrimination, struggle for social justice and the struggle between classes. The martial arts scenes and violence shows that at certain times, these struggles can be deadly. Cannot wait for season 3.

This is just great cinema, let alone television. Historical drama, martial arts action, political intrigue and a killer soundtrack all rolled into one.
