Advertisements Warrior is a new Cinemax original series. From wiki: Warrior is a television series created by Jonathan Tropper and Justin Lin that premiered on April 5, 2019, on Cinemax. It is based on an original concept by Bruce Lee. Set at the times of the Tong Wars in the late 1800s in San Francisco, California. The series follows Ah Sahm, a martial arts prodigy from China who immigrates to San Francisco and ends up becoming a hatchet man for the most powerful tong in Chinatown. Pretty good start. Reminiscent of Banshee (which Tropper was co-creator of), or even Spartacus. Good story, interesting characters. Lots of room for the plot to breathe. I read where Bruce Lee developed this concept in the early 70s. Pitched to a couple of studios, who turned him down. One of those studios then turned around and created Kung Fu, giving Lee no credit. (Aside: I loved me some King Fu in the day. Never missed an episode.) Between our protagonist, the mayor, the dirty-ish cop, the madam, the Tong wars, the anti-Chinese faction, old Civil War feuds and more, there's plenty of story to tell. So far, so good. Anyone else catch this?
