Product Description

Cartoon Network: Samurai Jack Season 3

Amazon.com

Series creator Genndy Tartakovsky has said, "The third season is always the toughest in television production," but episodes 27 through 39 of Samurai Jack show no signs of flagging imagination. To the contrary, the Season 3 collection includes some of Jack's best adventures. In the outrageous episode 28, Aku turns teenagers into destructive zombies with rock music. Incongruously clad in hip-hop threads, Jack crashes a rave and defeats the sinister DJ in a wonderfully anachronistic mixture of break-dancing and martial arts kata. Tartakovsky and his artists won a well-deserved Emmy for the two-part "Birth of Evil," that traces the origins of Aku to a primordial, destructive cloud that Odin, Rama, and Ra destroyed. The same gods forged Jack's enchanted sword from human righteousness. The more dramatic stories are balanced against sillier tales: in episode 27, Jack gets turned into a chicken by an irritable wizard, and in episode 33, he has to deal with giant blue teddy bear-like creature, who has an unexpectedly nasty side.

The extras include storyboard artist/martial artist Brian Andrews explaining how the crew stylized Chinese Whu Shu and Wing Chun techniques for Jack's combat moves, a gallery of preliminary sketches, and a commentary on "Birth of Evil." It all adds up to a winning package. (Unrated, suitable for ages 10 and older: stylized violence, minor gross humor, grotesque imagery) --Charles Solomon

If you don't know JACK...SAMURAI JACK, that is, is the story of a young samurai warrior seeks to defeat the evil shape-shifting master of darkness, Aku who has destroyed his father's kingdom and imprisoned its people. During a climatic battle between Aku and the samurai, Aku sends the young samurai through a time portal into the far future where Aku rules the Earth. Called "Samurai Jack" by the inhabitants of this future world, he seeks a way to return to the past and undo Aku's horrible deeds while battling Aku and his evil minions.

Includes:
Chicken Jack (JACK is turned into a chicken), Jack and the Rave-Slaves (Jack vs. an evil DJ),The GOOD, THE BAD and THE BEAUTIFUL (Jack vs. Bounty-hunters old-west style), Jack & the ZOMBIES (super-fight in a graveyard), JACK in EGYPT (young Jack), JACK and the TRAVELING CREATURES, JACK & THE HAUNTED HOUSE, JACK, the MONKS and THE ANCIENT MASTER'S SON, JACK and the 3 GEMS, JACK & THE LABYBRINTH.

The series won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program in 2004 (it was also nominated in 2002 and 2005) - and artists Scott Willis, Dan Krall and Bryan Andrews received Emmys for Outstanding Individual Achievement In Animation for their work on the series. Beautifully animated, the series makes you feel as if you are looking a high-action, high-color woodcut prints, scored with music both modern and ancient, both electric and serene. Featuring the voice work and the incredible depth of feeling from Phil LaMarr as Jack, and brilliance of Mako as Aku.

This set includes episodes 27 through 39 as released in the season 3 set from May '06. Notable for 2 part "The Birth of Evil" revealing AKU's origin in the only story without (MOSTLY) Jack.

NOTE: IF YOU DON'T ALREADY OWN ANY JACK on DVD, YOU MAY WANT TO GET THE Samurai Jack SEASON 1-3 SET WHICH WILL (OBVIOUSLY) INCLUDE THESE DVDS (#1-39), BECAUSE YOU ARE GOING TO WANT THEM ALL, I PROMISE!

The on-goings stories of a samurai nicknamed "Jack", as he tries to right the wrongs commited by the evil Aku.

Ep. XXVII: Chicken Jack - our hero is turned into a chicken and is forced into cock fighting

Ep. XXVIII: Jack and the Rave - after hearing about the children of a town running off and begin to act strange, Jack senses Aku's treachery afoot

Ep. XXIX: The Good, the Bad, and the Beautiful - a wild west offering where Jack is stalked by a bounty hunter and his ex-wife abourd a train

Ep. XXX: Jack and the Zombies - After coming to a fork in the road, Aku chooses the path for the young samurai to take. A path that would take him into a graveyard where he'll have to fight off armed soliders from the past, as well as Aku himself

Ep. XXXI: Jack in Egypt - After entering a set of ruins that he recognizes from his childhood, Jack is chased by three mystic creatures sent by Aku. Jack's only hope is to call upon their master by piecing together the three pieces of a golden scarab beetle

Ep. XXXII: Jack and the Travelling Creatures - Finding himself close to another time portal that could take him back in time, Jack is assisted by a group of creatures to find it. Little does he know that when he finds it, he will have to do battle with its guard

Ep. XXXIII: Jack and the Creature - After befriending a seemingly over-sized hamster, the creature follows Jack on his journey. Jack begins to get annoyed.

Ep. XXXIV: Jack and the Swamp Monster - A small creature enlists the help of our hero to obtain a special suit of armor

Ep. XXXV: Jack and the Haunted House - After entering a mysterious house, Jack learns of a strange curse put on a family

First of all, this features the EMMY AWARD WINNING 2 PARTER, "BIRTH OF EVIL", as well as 28-The Rave, an episode just about every Jack fan puts near the top of their list.

SECOND, YOU DO NOT, i repeat DO .. NOT! have to see the previous 26 episodes to appreciate season 3. The opening credits explain the premise. Once you've seen that, you can jump right in at any time.

Episodes in this set:

27 (XXVII)....Chicken Jack ¬_¬

28 (XXVIII)...The Rave ^_^

29 (XXIX).....The Clenches

30 (XXX)......The Zombies ^_^

31 (XXXI).....The Minions Of Set ¬_¬(ending sucked)

32 (XXXII)....The Time Portal

33 (XXXIII)...The Friendly Creature

34 (XXXIV)...The Swamp Wizard

35 (XXXV)....Haunted House ^_^

36 (XXXVI)...The Monks and The Ancient Master's Son

37 (XXXVII)..The Birth Of Evil Part 1 ^_^

38 (XXXVIII).The Birth Of Evil Part 2 ^_^

39 (XXXIX)...The Labyrinth

40 (XL)........The Shinobi Warrior ^_^

¬_¬ - not so great ep

^_^ - great or exquisite ep

I have already seen all 52 episodes of Samurai Jack, and IMHO, the shows improved every season. CERTAIN people will disagree with me, but you can't compare episodes like 4 (the Woolies) or 13 (Aku's Fractured Fairy Tales) with episodes like 43 (the Aku Infection) or 49 (Seasons of Death). While it will probably take till May 2007 for Season 4, that's no reason to not get S3.

I've gone over my theories of why it didn't survive past 52 episodes, including Cartoon Network's excessive time slot re-shuffling, the show's Y7 (family safe) hobbling, and the general American perception of animation being nothing more than a babysitter for infants.

season 4?
Thank you for the nice reply that Samurai Jack Season 4 on DVD comes out in May 2007 (last set) to complete the entire series of Samurai Jack with 52 episodes on DVD? How were the sales for Samurai Jack Season 1, Season 2, and Season 3 on DVD?
