Everything glows. One hopes for a happy ending, of course, but what matters most is shape and color, the abstraction of rain on stone, the sun through the trees. It makes "Samurai Jack" endlessly rewatchable: Every picture tells a story.

There's an uncanny power to this series that defies language, and it's rooted in Samurai Jack's commitment to formal experimentation.

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.
