5.0 out of 5 stars Samurai Jack - the next cartoon hero 31 Oct 2004
Samurai Jack is THE next (actually the current, but he's not hit mainstream yet) big thing. It's a cartoon about a Samurai (called Jack) sent into a future by Aku, the "shapeshifting master of Darkness". In this warped future, the world is ruled by Aku's evil. Jack's quest is to return home to win the fight that caused him to be sent into the future thus preventing Aku from achieving his Evil dominance.
Enough about the plot - it really doesn't matter (although it provides a nice backdrop). What matters is the way this piece of art (it really is) is put together. The drawing is crisp, clean and there is almost no outline on any character. The fighting (there's one "action" piece in most episodes) has little or no blood, and contains a lot of still shots with a fair bit of camera movement. Speech is secondary to the action - with the exception of The Scotsman, who is arguably the 3rd best character in it (behind Jack and Aku).It's hugely watchable by all ages.
Humour, Samurai ethics, Action, Morality - it all comes together in a piece of art that everyone should watch at least once. My ex-flatmates in Aberdeen didn't get it; I laughed through just about every episode. It might be like Marmite - but it's definitly worth trying.

1.0 out of 5 stars No Good 8 Feb 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Bought for a present and was not liked at all as couldn't be played on a dvd player due to it not being compatible for the UK. Might be my fault as didn't notice it wasn't for UK use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Time to Rejoice! 19 Feb 2004
By E. Hornaday - Published on
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The announced release of the first season of the brilliant animated series, Samurai Jack, is a genuine cause to rejoice! Finally, a studio understands the value of an animated series in a timely manner. One can only hope that other studios will get the message that animated properties can and are just as popular as live-action series and movies.
Samurai Jack was created by the multi-talented and truly gifted Genndy Tartakovsky, who also created the fantastic Dexter's Laboratory. Samurai Jack combines innovative and imaginative storytelling with a captivating animated style that is at once simple and evocative. The series tells the story of a Japanese samurai who has embarked on an epic mission to fight evil and save his world.
In the distant past, the samurai, who calls himself "Jack," is the son of an emperor captured by the evil Aku, a shape-shifting wizard. The young Jack is sent away not only to survive but to train his mind and body in all forms of martial arts so that he will eventually be capable of vanquishing Aku.
Jack returns as an adult and reunites with his mother who gives him the sacred sword of the samurai to defeat Aku and rescue his father.
Armed with the sword, Jack is on the verge of a final confrontation with Aku when Jack is literally ripped from his own time by the evil wizard and hurtled thousands of years into the future -- a future where Aku has already become the all-powerful evil lord who controls the world and all living beings.
Jack begins anew, working not only to right the wrongs Aku has visited on the population of this future world, but ultimately to return to his own time and stop Aku before the nightmarish future he has seen can even be realized.
Mature themes including the true meaning of courage, morality, responsibility, faith, despair, good and evil are explored as Jack struggles, and risks his life time and again to overcome what at first appears to be a force that is all-powerful and unstoppable. However, through Jack's insights and pure heart, viewers come to realize there is hope, not just for Jack, but for any society in which just one individual risks it all against tyranny and evil.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stylish Quality 26 May 2004
By Keith Doyle - Published on
I absolutely love this show. Samurai Jack explodes with a level of style rarely seen. The action, animation and stories are all fantastic. This is an extremely well done TV series.
The character of Jack is an immensely charismatic hero. His courage, resourcefulness and ethical code serves as a breath of fresh air in today's sea of common, immoral TV characters. This samurai actually inspires me to better myself in the real world. Not many shows have that effect and even fewer cartoons do!
The only special features in this set I liked was getting to see what some of the voice actors looked like.
The chance to own the whole first season must not be missed by Samurai Jack fans. I await the next season on DVD eagerly. Highly recommended to anyone who is interested in the following: samurais, clever plots, style.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Greatest Animated Series of All Time 18 Mar 2004
By Matthew L. Roffman - Published on
Samurai Jack is great because it combines fantastic writting with a somewhat unique, stylized look and feel. It's nice to see that Cartoon Network is beginning to release series such as Jack on DVD. I don't know will there be any special features but I can give you a basic synopsis of the episodes included. The set will probably skip the 2 hour movie (episode I-III) since that has already been release seperately. Here are the other episodes
IV-Jack, the Woolies, and the Chritchellites-Jack helps a group of supposedly savage beasts called "Woolies" who have been enslaved.
V-Jack in Space-Jack helps a group of scientists who want to escape into space.
VI-Jack and the Warrior Woman-Jack seeks a strange jewel in the desert, accompanied by a mysterious woman.
VII-Jack and the Three Blind Archers-Jack hears of a mysterious island which possess a well that can grant any one wish.
VIII-Jack vs. Mad Jack- Jack must face an evil version of himself.
IX-Jack Under the Sea-Jack seeks a race of amphibians living in an underwater city who have a time machine.
X-Jack and the Lava Monster-Jack is summoned by a Lava creature under the earth.
XI-Jack and the Scotsman-Jack makes a new freind.
XII-Jack and the Gangsters- Jack joins some gangsters.
XIII-Aku's Fairy Tales-Aku tries his hand at propoganda.
XIV-Jack Learns to 'Jump Good'-Jack befriends a group of high jumping creatures.
XV-Jack Tales- Three Tales of the Samurai.
XVI-Jack and the Smackback-Jack is forced to be a gladiator slave.
XVII-Jack and the Scotsman, Part 2-Jack and the Scotsman must rescue the Scotsman's wife.
XVIII-Jack and the Ultra-robots-Jack must fight a group of robots, each with a special weapon.
XIX-Jack Remembers the Past-Jack sadly remembers his childhood days.
XX-Jack and the Monks-Jack climbs the Mountain of Fatoom in search of truth.
In ALL cases... there is more to these episodes than the sum of there parts. Samurai Jack is probably one of the greatest TV shows of all time.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Samurai is Born- TOO GOOD FOR WORDS 1 Sep 2005
By Amazon Customer - Published on
The first time i saw this cartoon i was instantly hooked. The dvd was a great refresher for me. It is the story of a samurai that is trying to defeat a great evil name 'Aku'. His home town is raided by this evil and he must protect his family, just as he's about to defeat Aku, he is cast into the future, and now he's on a quest to get back home and defeat Aku. Anyone would love this dvd. I just can't wait for more Samurai Jack.
