    Who else used to watch this amazing show on CN/adult swim?


    I used to watch all the time at 9.

    Any more fans on here of that show?

    One of my favorite shows when I was younger. I only recently made the connection (thanks to the NC) that Aku was voiced by the same guy who voiced Iroh from Avatar (RIP Mako).

    Wow didn't know that, he was up there,(Aku), on the mighty $shockwave$'s list of great super villians.

    One of the best villains in animation of all time.

    He was such a Large Ham.

    I loved the series. Phil LaMarr voicing a time-traveling samurai who kicks all kinds of evil butt.. How could you go wrong with that?

    I wonder how Genddy Tatoroski (Sp?) would do a TF series.

    I was just thinking about how I wanted to watch the show earlier. Anyone know if Aku always said he was the "Shapeshifting Master of Darkness" or was it originally "Master of Evil"?

    Eh, I was excited before the show actually premiered. The first half of the first episode was interesting; then it all quickly fell apart. It felt too much like a Shyamalan movie - random crap thrown in at random times hoping it would come off as clever or creative.

    Amazingly artistic and artistically amazing.

    That's it. I'm saying it.

    I find your constant dropping of Tropes really annoying.

    And yes, my opinion is my opinion. I just wanted to get it off my chest.

    Samurai Jack is my all time favourite cartoon. The animation was stunning, the stories were great, the voice acting was brilliant, and the soundtrack was amazing.

    Own every season on DVD. I have also had Gendy's children. I want Dexter's Lab on DVD, dammit, but they forget their roots.

    Jack was a time in cartoon TV that I will never forget. Dexter, Powerpuff Girls and Jack.

    I had high hopes for this show, but after it premiered they were quickly dashed. I was afraid that after working on 10 minute episodes, Tartakovsky wouldn't quite be able to handle a 25 minute show and I was right. The art style was cool, and the story wasn't bad, but the pacing was just awful. The time traveling bit just ended up being a ploy to show how badass Jack was in different situations and got boring quick. I see the show as a trial run to Gendy and co.'s Clone Wars, which was (forgive the pun) light years better.

    I kinda liked it. But, didn't CN do something where Aku escaped the show, went to other cartoons (PPG, Dexter,) and kill them? Or did i dream that?

    My two favourite episodes were the one with the Spartans and the one with the Bounnty hunters and the princess. First was because of the battle and the Spartan King who was a fucking badass and the last one because we saw Jack kill several people with ease. Btw, did anyone think he become the spartan king in the future?
