Action, adventure and the supernatural pervade this Pokeman-like CGI series in which Monk-in-training Omi, Dragon-guard Dojo, and new warrior students Kimiko, Raimundo, and Clay race to collect ancient artifacts called Shen-Gong-Wu. The evil, formless witch Wuya and her sidekick Jack Spice are also chasing the Shen-Gong-Wu in hopes of harnessing the artifacts' supernatural powers and conquering the world. In each of thirteen episodes, Dojo leads Omi and his fellow students to a different Shen-Gong-Wu. Inevitably, Jack also covets the same artifact and challenges Omi or one of the other students compete in a Xiaolin Showdown--a battle in which each warrior invokes his or her own powers and the powers of a Shen-Gong-Wu already collected to defeat his or her opponent and win possession of both the artifact in question and his or her opponent's artifact. Victory ebbs and flows and, while Jack cheats his way through each challenge, Omi and his fellow students compete honestly and are continually learning and growing as a result of each battle. By the end of the season, evil threatens to triumph over good: Jack and Wuya combine the powers of individual Shen-Gong-Wu to spark a metamorphosis that drastically changes the face of evil. Can Omi and his friends possibly restore good in the world and prevent 10,000 years of darkness? (Ages 6 to 14) --Tami Horiuchi
