This series is one of the most sought after classic shows by fans and collectors. One of the reasons why is because the short-lived series has not been reran all that much since it went off the air in 1993 and was released on DVD roms manufactured on demand for the first time on April 5, 2016.
In a 2001 interview, Jeffrey Meek said that he looks back fondly on his time as Raven, and went on to say that he was sorry the show was cancelled so soon, as he would have liked to seen the character and his relationships evolve more through the years.
In a brief interview for a Hawaiian newspaper, Jeffrey Meek said that he fought for the development of the character to have a stronger focus on history and the mythology of the past, but felt the show lost sight of the original intent or never fully understood it.
When speaking of Raven's cancellation in a 1993 interview, star Jeff Meek said, "There were too many people involved in the creative process, all with their own opinions, telling the show what it should be like. One of the big problems was that the writers were in Hollywood and we were in Hawaii."
According to Jeffrey Meek, he wanted the fighting and the violence on the show to always be seen as a last resort for the character. As Raven's philosophy of harmony and there is always a better way, is of course rooted in the ancient martial arts traditions themselves. "I always believed Raven felt he failed when he so often had to get physical. There was always a sense of loss when he was force to be confrontational."
In a 1992 interview with the Associated Press, Meek said, "I don't want it to be another action show or a Hollywood version of the Japanese perspective", he said. "I want to pay homage to the culture. I want to be accurate. I want Japanese people to listen to my Japanese and go, 'Wow! He doesn't have an accent!' I've been working on these things. Raven embodies "bushido", a Japanese term that embraces warrior spirit and Zen consciousness, and as an actor, I'm trying to convey the human conflicts of an almost superhuman type character."
Jeffrey Meek (Raven) choreographed most of the fight sequences in the series. "I tried to keep them as simple as possible, yet as explosive as possible", he said in a interview with Martial Arts Illustrated Magazine.
When talking to TV Guide in 1993, Jeffrey Meek briefly mentioned the guest star villains that appeared on the show each week, "These guys like the idea that we do the show in Hawaii, they hop on a free plane ride, thinking it will be a piece of cake, and then they end up at the chiropractor."
