Since we all have a ton of free tome on our hands now, it seems like the perfect time to watch some TV or movies that have been on your backlog for years! I know that I’ve been going through a ton of anime and series like Killing Eve during my quarantine, but I may just have to put all of that on hold thanks to Adult Swim. The programming block known for its edgy, mature shows and insane sense of humor have decided to release all of the hit animated series Samurai Jack for free on its website.
That’s right, you can watch over sixty episodes of arguably one of the best animated series of the past two decades for the low, low price of nothing. The first four seasons are classics with some very wonderful episodes. Some focus more on action while others offer up a lot more humor and levity than one may remember of the series. It isn’t all action and samurai drama. It can be goofy and dumb, but that description cannot be said for the fifth season, which released only a few short years ago and is definitely intended for mature audiences. The best way I can describe the fifth season is how most people think they remember Samurai Jack. Needless to say, it’s wonderful.
If you’ve never seen Samurai Jack, do yourself a favor and just pull the trigger and do it. I know I say this often, but there’s really nothing quite like what Genndy Tartakovsky and crew have created. It’s an artistic and wonderful show that isn’t afraid to tell deep and meaningful stories in a world with sentient dogs and mad Scotsmen. That final season alone justifies watching the entire show just to have the impact of that season really hit home.
