Overall very good and fun to watch. After the first episode, the next few are the low point of the season. Really enjoyed Episodes 11 (Scotsman) and 13 (Fairy Tales).

We didn’t have cable growing up so I missed out on a lot of classic TV shows. Samurai Jack was one of them. I recently rectified that situation by binge watching the whole series (including the astounding new fifth and final season), and I LOVED it.

Samurai Jack is the story of a samurai marooned in a dystopian future trying to get back to the past. For the most part episodes are unconnected adventures where Jack either searches for a time portal or gets distracted from his portal search to help someone. Which might get boring after four (now five) seasons without the show’s uniquely cinematic style and fantastically choreographed fight scenes, as it is Samurai Jack is some of the most fun TV I've seen in a long while.
