Jack's backMarch 15, 2017 | 20:47 | Written by: snake911
No, not that Jack. This Jack:
This past Saturday was the premiere for the latest season of Samurai Jack, and wow was it great! Bonkers to believe it's been over a decade since the last episode aired back in 2004.
The obvious big change is how he looks so incredibly different from the original series (not art style, I mean his appearance). Here he has a beard, wears heavy armor, rides around on a dirty, noisy motorcycle, and uses a small arsenal of firearms rather than a sword; making a striking contrast to what he used to look like.
Since this was the first episode it had a lot of ground to cover for setting up all that's to come in this latest season, and because of that, this 30 minute episode felt more like 60 minutes. But that's a good thing because every minute of it was extremely entertaining. We get a lot of time with Jack to get an idea of what he's like now, which is a confused, lost, and tired individual. It'll be interesting to see how he develops as a character with this new season.
I also like the idea of this small pack of ladies that've been trained all their lives to seek and kill Jack. In fact, all of the antagonists that were shown in this episode were really cool. So if every episode is going to be like this one, then I'm excited to see it all the way through.Permalink - Category: television
