Jack is Back!!! Samurai Jack that is.


By Corey Saltytruth Floyd


It was a long time coming but Samurai Jack has returned to cartoon network. If you follow us on Twitter (and you should) @Basick_D_B was live tweeting and for good reason.  Believe it or not, the photo in the article is Jack. 

We are reintroduced to our hero looking like he is fresh off Fury Road sporting Samurai style armor and a motorcycle with spikes on the wheels. He takes out a few hundred drones with his machine gun and staff. Oh yeah, 

HE LOST HIS SWORD!!!! 

They haven’t gone in what happened to it exactly but the episode did cover one interesting aspect of the story. It has been 50 years since the last time we saw him yet he hasn’t aged a day and on top of that throughout the episode, he is haunted by visions of his family dying and calling to him for help it was really creepy. 

But it still had its light side he took on an assassin robot that was voiced by a Sammy Davis Jr. ( google him if you don’t know what I’m talking about) that used music as a weapon. Fun, creative, as well as intense battle,  took place. We did not see AKU during the episode but I did heard his voice. The animation is slightly upgraded from the original. 

You can see the details of each frame. By the look of the credits seems like 85% of the original team working on this I suggest you guys check it out. I won’t be going episode by episode on this but after the season it will receive the good, the bad, and the SALTY but so far so good.
