News & Interviews for Samurai Jack: Season 5
It's hard to tell if this tighter approach to episodic storytelling will reach a satisfying end, since Tartakovsky excels more at bringing us into the heat of the moment than exploring a bigger picture. But he's off to a promising start.
I'm happy to report that this cartoon created by Genndy Tartakovsky is as exciting, beautiful, and multilayered as it ever was.
The return of Samurai Jack is a slam dunk that shatters the glass. Everything that made the original show so great is back with more intensity and maturity.
Samurai Jack season 5 is a matured continuation to the saga that's action packed, emotionally affecting, beautifully animated and endlessly entertaining.
The original four seasons of Jack were a triumph in their own right, and the fifth is shaping up to be a proper send-off for a show that was rudely taken off the air before its time.
Audience Reviews for Samurai Jack: Season 5
As painterly, pensive and kinetic as ever. In all probability, the most beautiful animation ever made for television, with it's moral sights firmly fixed on peace even as it exhilarates with its bravura combat sequences. Good in every way; humane, funny and visceral. A masterpiece.
