    That's her super-power! She lures you into a false sense of security then beats the living daylights out of you.

      At least on NCIS LA they sort of play up on how little Hettie is and how unlikely a fighter she is, so when he beats up people it is more of an inside joke that everyone is scared of her.

          Yeah, but he was naturally cool. AND had a British accent - that made him even coolererer.

            Did he go around kung-fuing everyone? I don't really remember.

            I did like the Equalizer movies with Denzel Washington. He pulled off the character very well.

              Is anybody twice her size?

                I think Woodward's character was a master of soft power.

                      And in the pilot he mentions how he never fired a shot (except in target practice) in his entire career in law enforcement but fired off several every episode.

                          I don't know why they bothered making it a "reboot" instead of just making it a new show with her.

                          They are "rebooting" Kung Fu too, again basically just reusing the name from the old show and not having any other connection as far as I can tell.

                            Barretta? IIRC he duked it out with someone at least once per episode.

                                nope. but the lead is a chinese american woman. Her name is Chen though. Starts wedsnesday. Not a western either. Like I said, totally different show stealing an old name so they can call it a 'reboot'.
