From Genndy Tartakovsky, creator of Star Wars: Clone Wars, comes the tale of a young samurai cast far into the future by the evil shape-shifting wizard Aku. Join Samurai Jack on his quest to return to the past and undo the destruction that Aku has wrought upon the land. With award-winning artwork and action-packed plots, the journeys of Samurai Jack are a must for any fan's collection.]]>
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

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.

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.Read more ›
