It took me several days to write this review, seeing as how I'd have to admit to zillions of online strangers how much I love a kid's cartoon. I swear I don't usually watch this stuff! It's not my fault! I just can't stand any more reality shows!

All right, down to business. Other reviews have covered the basics so I'll gloss over them quickly. Four kids--Clay, Kimiko, Raimundo and Omi--are brought to a temple in China, to train as warriors and locate magical artifacts. These artifacts were de-powered and hidden all over the world thousands of years ago, but are regaining their magical potency one by one. The young warriors must find them before they fall into the wrong hands. Those hands belong to an evil boy genius, his nagging ghost mentor, and a host of other interesting villains.

The artifacts give powers to whoever is holding them at the time, and I have to applaud the creators coming up with such an assortment of pleasing things. They can let you talk to animals, stretch yourself like chewing gum, summon a whirlwind, blast fire, or fool with the workings of space and time. Most artifacts require skill and discipline to use correctly. Some give you a new ability, but take away one that you already had. Others backfire. A few are too dangerous to be used at all. The characters have to think about using them; they can't just flail them around.

But the show isn't just about finding and mastering weapons--it's also about finding and mastering yourself. And while cartoons that moralize really rub me the wrong way, I approve this time. The characters learn to find the rational way to approach a problem, and even better, consider how their own strengths and weaknesses factor into a situation.

I must admit, when i first saw Xiaolin Showdown I couldn't understand a word. Now it is one of my favorites!! I love how Jack Spicer is smart, and yet a fool. Also, I like how Omi can't talk right. Next, Clay's southern accent and metaphors are hilarious! Raimondo I like the most because he is always the one making jokes. And Kimico is a girly-girl, but in battle, she is fierce. Don't think this cartoon is all humor, it is also logical. Buy this DVD and watch the show on cartoon network!!!

Ok ok, I'll admit that I love this show. I never admited it at first in front of my brother or he would rub it in my face.

I like the characters and the way that they have attitude! It's actually just the whole cartoon that is awesome. It's funny and it takes awhile, but you can actually get into the plot (unlike some where it takes like FOREVER). It's just totally and completly AWESOME!!!!!!!! Watch it!!!!

"Xiaolin Showdown" is an interesting breakthrough series. Basically it's about four young monks travelling the globe for mystical artifacts called the Shen Gong Wu. However, they must face a whole lotta bad guys in order to get the Wu, even if it results in an amazing duel known as the Xiaolin Showdown.

Here's the who's who on the show:

Omi - A young dragon-in-training who is confident in his training at the Xiaolin temple. Unfortunately, he can't keep up with the times.

Raimundo - A hip Brazillian boy who usually plays it cool, although his attitude sometimes interferes with his teammates.

Clay - A down-home fella from Texas who is usually calm and steady in his training.

Kimiko - A Japanese girl who never wears the same outfit twice in each episode. She's very high-tech and fashionable, though she's never taken too seriously.

Master Fung - The mentor of Omi and the others with lots of philosophy to boot.

Dojo - A witty, yet stubborn dragon who can grow gigantic in size for transporting the young monks.

Jack Spicer - A sinister boy genius with a love of robotics. To me, he's really a wimp.

Wuya - The spirit of the Heylin witch who seeks revenge and get as much Shen Gong Wu as she can.

So join our young heroes in thirteen action and laugh packed episodes spanning their travels and their tribulations. The two disc set is worth buying for, even if there's not much in special features. Inevitably, this series is very nice if you like shows like "Teen Titans" or something like that.

I have been waiting forever for this show to come out on DVD. It is absolutely hilarious and very different from the average cartoon. It is about 4 monks who are brought together at a Xiaolin temple to learn the ancient art of the dragon. From there they must embark on a journey to collect ancient objects known as Shen Gon Wu which have magnificent powers. For more info on the show got to IMDB.com or TV.com

Adults and children alike will delight in this show.
