On The Air: Blazing Team: Masters of Yo Kwon Do (2006-15)

Last year, Hasbro and Discovery Communications, partners in Discovery Family, acquired a nearly 10 year old series from China, Blazing Teens. All that was needed was to make one subtle change to the title, in addition to dubbing in English voices, to make the transition to Blazing Team: Masters of Yo Kwon Do, which currently is running at least on Fridays on DF.

Call it China's answer to the American-produced Xiaolin Showdown, which bowed on WB some time prior. A group of teens under the direction of a mysterious sensei, seek to restore the balance between light & darkness.

Following is a trailer for the show, courtesy of Hasbro:

Blazing Team is one of three new animated series DF added last year. We'll be looking at the others this weekend.

Rating: B-.
