    Samurai Jack

    Hmmm people have posted threads about their show, so why not this one?

    Anyways, what is your opinion on this show? Any old time fans here? Anyone into the return (season 5)?

    Of course this was another show I used to watch when I was really young but prior to it's return, I haven't seen it in soooooo long. Like a lot longer than I did with the other old cartoons. Maybe they didn't show it as often? Anyways, I flipped when I found out they were returning and had a gut feeling it was going to be damn good, and my feeling was correct alright. That's how you return an old cartoon, babe! (Suck it Teen Titans Go/PowerPuff Girls 2016!) Anyways, there's no question I am going to keep up with it every Saturday night on Toonami, but I should probably start from the beginning as well just because it's been so long... so that's my plan.

    I used to watch it when I was really young, so all I remember is how cool the animation and characters were. I'm not anticipating the return as I don't plan on watching it. It's cool that it's coming back though!


    Together forever ...

    I watched it as a kid. I saw quite a few episodes but I don't think I watched all of them. I used to watch it every week when it aired. I remember it well and I remember the atmosphere of it. Season 5 complements the feel of the show but changes it. I like it though. I think it fits and I like Jack being 50 years chronologically older and a shell of himself. I liked XCIII. I liked the part

    I tried to watch it but I didn't like it.. Is it really as good as everyone (including my boyfriend) says it is? What's so good about it?

    Arize-
    I think it's main appeal is visual storytelling. There's a lot of emphasis on stylized action. Jack goes long periods of time without speaking, allowing the viewer to focus a lot more on the environment. As for season 5, I think it's that and the appeal of a rugged Jack 50 years later

    Oh okay. Well I can admit the visuals are lovely. But is the storytelling deep and compelling beyond that? That's usually my number one criteria when it comes to enjoying a show.

    there's a bit of a story. The creator,Genndy Tartakovsky, explicity made only a few ongoing relationships with characters. So it's a bit less "dramatic" in a story telling sense because Jack traveled alone a lot. But season 5 have done a really good job with exploring Jack's humanity so far. It's more dramatic than the past seasons. But the past seasons have story heavy flashbacks or stories about Jack's family and Aku and stuff
