    Thank goodness. I love this show for doing the "simplicism" style the way it's meant to be done.

    I was thinking Jack Skellington. We really need fewer Jacks.

    Over-rated? Well, considering that there aren't many shows like it, I'll take that over the mindless drivel of reality TV and the repetitive dumb crap like most of CN puts out.

    nice.....that was an awesome show and Genndy really really really!!! has a knack for action.

    If Genndy was working on the new transformers series, i know it would be a hit. Those clone wars shorts he made were awesome despite being sylisticly simple, and samurai jack was such a good show with very creative side chracters and very graceful action sequences.

    It was a good story with good characters....but the animation just ruined it for me. I know I just commited blasphamy to some, but that's just my take on it.

    It was a cool show, but I prefer Afro Samurai... there's no "jack"-ing around with that guy!

    I thought this thread would be about Jack Thompson, due to the new GTA 4 trailer.

    Good news for Samurai Jack though. :)

    What's this 'most original' crap? It's just Frank Miller's Ronin set in the RIFTS universe.

    Looking forward to this as well.

    Don't really care where the ideas came from for it since they were implemented very well, very few shows can get away with telling a great story with almost no dialogue.

    Also they did a good job getting around the violence issue.
