I'm lumping together t.v. shows of all genres.
One of my favorites in terms of scenery is the BBC production "Wild China". Absolutely stunning visuals, guaranteed to get the imagination churning. It's available as a Watch Instantly at Netflix, although the dvd provides better clarity and Mandarin subtitles as an option.

Apparently, there are many renditions of "Flying Fox of Snowy Mountain". Netflix has a 40 episode series called "Fox Volante of the Snowy Mountain", which I highly recommend. The series has many excellent ideas for weapons (especially swords), names, different expressions of martial power, and some amount of magic.

PostSubject: The Legend of Guan Gong   4/2/2010, 07:18

This is a 28-part series about Guan Gong, or Guan Yu. It's available as a streaming video on Netflix. Guan Yu is a historical case of someone going from hero, to legend, to god. He's now worshiped in Taoism and Buddhism.

The TV series production values aren't all that high, so I'd recommend first reading about him on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guan_yu

The Patriotic Knights is another Wuxia TV show, not as good as "Flying Fox," but it contains more fantasy and archetypical elements than "Flying Fox".
