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.
Kudos to Genndy Tartakovsky for this masterpiece of a show, 16 Years later we finally get back to the past, Samurai Jack.
It's a remarkable work of optimism in the face of overwhelming darkness without and within. For an action cartoon, it feels timely, even if it wasn't intended to be.
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.
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.
