    The classic 1960s "Wild, Wild West" had some excellent fight/stunt scenes. It helped that lead actor Robert Conrad loved being an action hero and kept pushing the writers for bigger, more frequent and more creative fights.

    ugh...my gf makes me watch those.
    i HATE those shows.
    story/plotline is totally crap: 'oh look, my superhightech gadget found this, now im going to shut up about any hints and tips and suddenly during the last two minutes, as by magc come up with the solution!'

    No, my friends: Hercule Poirot, or Maigret.
    There was also this detective series made by the bbc about a medieval monk who solved crimes, he was fucking awesome, forget the name of the series though..

    That NCIS LA one is the worst. The dialogue is as if it was written as a play:

    chick in charge: we have just received word that the NGAFATNTBEE

    minor role guy: you mean the National Governing Association For All Things Needing To Be Explicitly Explained.

    Chick in charge: yes, that's the one, they have intel on a terrorist we've been monitoring.

    Computer guy: I'll do an IMPACT search and cross reference the international database in order to find the facial reconstruction software that can reconstitute the likeness from a towel he used at that hotel we missed him at.

    Chick in charge: I need that five minutes ago, the rest of you, take your seriously expensive and therefore suspicious car to some abandoned warehouse that computer guy linked to a guy who once bought a burrito from the shop that stands two blocks from the place where the intel was gathered from NGA.....

    My personal favorite would be Walker, Texas Ranger.

    Already mentioned, but I always liked Highlander's H2H scenes. IIRC, Adrian Paul was legitimately into CMA (not sure how good he was, but I liked the style). The one show that I have been trying forever to find is the old Green Hornet with Bruce Lee, but have had zero luck.

    The worst, but awesome in a terrible way, was that show in the 90s where people were competing in a martial arts tournament and had "lifebars" posted up on the screen. Maybe it's just the atrocious acting that is tainting my memory of the fight scenes, but that show was unreal.

    So not the most technical of fight scenes, but a sure brawl. What I would call hate-fighting. Deadwood. YouTube- DEADWOOD- Dan Vs. 'The Captain'

    WMAC Masters:

    Blah...

    I always hated the Star Trek stuff, both old and new. Never liked the Klingon fighting. It's like ever hit was so brutal, it may you pause in place and yet, never powerful enough to knock you out. It's like you have all this awesome technology but fighting devolved!

    Oh, and unless it's been mentioned, the Sammo Hung show was called Martial Law:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martial_Law_(TV_series)

    More Bad:

    Power Rangers
    Masked Rider
    Big Bad Beatle Borgs
    "All other low budget people in rubber suit and/or spandex shows"

    Although not a TV show, I will give special honorable mention to Guyver 2: Dark Hero. Now that was some hot ****!

    Ultimate Surrender aside, any movie choreographed by Yen Woo Ping.
    His work on Magnificent Butcher was top notch. The man made Sammo Hung fly.

    Now, did anyone mention the Godzilla grappling scenes?

    Amazon.com has the Green Hornet on DVD.
    I agree with JKDChick about Legend of the Seeker. The fight sequences are way better than Hercules and Xena (Sam Raimi directs). Kahlan (who is hot) fights with daggers and there's Cara in red leather...whoa, stop stay on topic...! Not that I'm biased about the fact Terry Goodkind is my fav author or anything...good fights though. :icon_roll

    Actually this makes sense. The evolution of technology has made people fat and lazy already....I don't think its too far a stretch that, in the future, man to man combat will devolve as well. Who knows...
