Earlier this year, my friends Mark and Michael toured Asia, going to China, Hong Kong, and Japan.  So as I'm always thinking of old TV shows which I can find on YouTube to share for Video Sunday, I figured why not 'Hong Kong' which starred Rod Taylor and Lloyd Bochner?  

From Wikipedia:
'Hong Kong' is a 26-episode adventure/drama series (plus an initial pilot episode) which aired on ABC television during the 1960–1961 season and helped to catapult Australian actor Rod Taylor into a major film star, primarily in the 1960s, beginning with his role in Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds". The series was a production of 20th Century Fox Television, and the final credit of each episode stated: "Filmed by Twentieth Century Fox Television Inc. at its Hollywood studios and in the Crown Colony of Hong Kong".

So here are 8 episodes of the series with over 7 hours to while away your Sunday if the weather isn't cooperating.

First off, here's the theme and the opening credits:

There was a half-hour pilot episode which - SURPRISE! - actually had a title other than "Pilot":

And now on with the show, this is it!
