    The best part of the show is that is the intro. In a single minute you are brought up to speed with the basic premise, get a sample of it's choreography, and a primer that shows that you are going to get a samurai sword action story with sci fi setting that borrows from several well-known eras and cultures. All in one dynamic minute.

    The show has continuity and growth, but anyone can start watching at any point in the series and be up to be speed.

    Most shows have every episode independent and scattered or they build on each other so much that you can only binge watch.

    My girlfriend and i are in the middle of season 3 now and absolutely love the episodic nature of the show and its delving into numerous genres over the course of the show. I'm more than pleased with its revival and can't wait to see what will be done with Aku.

    I've been watching some old Samurai Jack shows on Hulu. I wonder is the new show going to be darker, lighter, or the same.

    A lot of robots bleed oil realistically. That's one of many tricks they do on Samurai Jack to make adult things kid-friendly. Robots is the norm, but apparently you can get away with more violence if the living creature doesn't look humanoid.

    It's not the violence. I also noticed the seedy part of town clearly invokes noir clich├ęs for strip clubs and other seedy things but the signs say "Wholesome Fun" or "Clown Show." The mobsters imply a lot of mobster stuff but don't do it.

    They don't say Hell, they say the Pit of Hate, but clearly everything Aku and his closest cronies do invokes both Western and Eastern notions of Hell.

    The question is, would I like it more or less if Aku was actually shown to be as evil as he is.

    My bet is on either darker or the same. The show will be aired on Adult Swim, so if they chose to, they could get away with a little bit more.

    I can't wait for this show to return. I wish I knew precisely when in 2016 it is set to air.

    I am definitely excited for this one to come back. I hope they figure out how to keep the charm of the original and don't just get dark and brooding.
