So I'm going through the archive of Geeknigths and was listening to Geeknights 060302 episode were Samurai Jack was mentioned. So I figured "Hey, I bet there was an awesome Jack thread that spawned from this episode" I look...and nothing! You give Avatar so much play and you don't mention the Jack? Shame on you front row crew forums...shame!
So, I hope im not the only person here that loved this show. I remember it being excellent to watch after a long day, since it had no story and was just hilarious and great fight scenes. Just watch and let your mind take a break. If any of you like Gurren Lagann and havent seen this I recommended you do so immediately. It appeals to the same manly centerers of the brain.
(ohh and I know Samurai Jack isnt anime but its a cartoon and I think it fits here more then "everything else")
I remember writing what amounted to a fan fiction of it in 5th grade.
My favorite episode was when Jack helped out a tribe of weak aliens who basically kidnapped him from a bar. There was a giant fight scene where Jack just rips through an army of Aku's robot beetles. It was a two part episode if I remember right.
Now for an Avatar connection: the voice of Aku was done by the original voice of Iroh, Mako Iwamatsu.
Pity I'm such a failure with having a proper TV-watching schedule - there was only one very depressing year in which I was caught up in all shows, all the time.
Comic books lack that feel you get with audio.
But, if they're successful, maybe the show will come back as a film or something.
