In Review: Kung Fu (S3 – Ep4) Harmony

With the grand reopening of Harmony Dumplings just around the corner, it's all hands on deck to make sure it goes off without a hitch.

Synopsis: With the grand reopening of Harmony Dumplings just around the corner, it’s all hands on deck to make sure it goes off without a hitch. However, things take an unexpected turn when the Shens receive a mysterious threat on the eve of the restaurant’s reopening.


The Story

After the last couple of weeks more serious mythology-filled Storylines. Kung Fu goes into more comedic territory this week as the Grand Opening of the Shen family restaurant Harmony Dumplings makes last-minute preparations for its grand opening. However, things take a turn for the worst when the Shens receive threatening messages warning them not to open the restaurant.

Of course, it soon becomes clear that the threats are directed at Nicky, which leads to her having to go through a list of crooks that she has defeated over the last three years. This leads to her finding a support group run by one of her old enemies for people that have been defeated by her. However, the true culprit winds up being someone completely unexpected in that they are not a former crook that Nicky has put away.

Also, Althea finds herself a new job, which will allow her to put her computer skills to good use, but without having to use a computer.


The Acting

The actors get to let their hair down a little in this week’s show as the series moves into more comedic territory. Shannon Dang puts in a fun performance as Althea visits Leif Winzig (Richard Speight Jr.) in jail. If you remember it was Leif who trashed Althea’s car Clementine in season two, which is something that he particularly enjoys reminding Althea about. 

We also get a very funny and acrobatic performance from Michelle Mao as Tracy a disgruntled former employee of Harmony Dumplings who has a bone or two to try and break with Nicky.



Harmony is anything but what the title suggests. Instead, we get an episode about disharmony which leads to some really funny comedic stuff happening. Nicky finding out that there is a support group made up of her former vanquished enemies was a lot of fun. But the fact that the real culprit behind the threads was not related to Nicky’s crime-fighting work was a delightful twist. Hopefully, we can get a few more episodes like this in future months. But not too many.
