    i think this a very good mini series. One of the best i have seen in months. The story is straight to the point, with a bit of Chinese fantasy, a bit of romance and a lot of action. I really think there should be a sequel to this cause its a pity that is such a short story. i would say this is a must see if you like action and martial arts. Another thing that i liked is the sword a nice shinny Japanese one ( obviously it could be otherwise) with a very cool name. Have fun watching itmoreless
  • The best thing I have watched in years. By far.

    OMG. The best spent 6 hours of my life.

    I love the plot and the characters and the action.

    Brendan Fehr = Gorgeous!

    Jamie Chung = Adorable!

    The "goofy" guy (Otto) = Made me laugh SO hard!

    Please please pleaseeeee make this a regular series!

    I am SERIOUSLY begging you!

    I can't wait to see what happens between Jake and Heaven after that really good clinghanger at the end of the last episode.

    I loved how we actually thought Heaven was over with all the ninja mumbo jumbo, but WOW was that a twist!

    I just hope that Otto and Cheryl develop a little "something something" if you know what I mean ;)

    Overall, I really thought the show was pleasant to watch and better than most of the garbage that's out there right now *ahem* Reaper *ahem*

    I will definitely be this show's #1 fan forever.

    Don't end Samurai Girl with a clinghanger, please!

    It deserves to be dragged out more and totally needs a proper ending, unlike what happened with Gilmore Girls (btw, I am still hoping for that GG reunion movie as well!!!)moreless

    I really loved this mini-series. I just wish they would've showed more of Jake and Heaven at the end. All-in-all, It was a fun 3-night entertainment event..but I would love for there to be more! I really want to watch it again right now...it was a personal favorite of mine. I loved all the characters, they were all very different yet all great in their own ways. I really liked Jake, haha. And I think him and Heaven are great together!! So they should've showed more of where they winded up at the end, but oh well. I'm still very happy with this mini-series. =)moreless
  • Boring... skip it.

    3.1
    I watched the 1st two episodes and I hoped it would turn out better on the next. The twist was ok, halfway through the third episode it was so boring the I just stopped watching. The story just drags on and on. The main characters are so cliche and the fight scenes are so so. I don't really know what to write here other than that. Maybe you can watch this and waste your time while waiting for the return of the better tv shows out there. If you have nothing else to view, it's fine but I wouldn't really recommend it otherwise.moreless
  • Ok lets give it up for another girl power Tv-show. This new show is based on a samurai princess who knows all the kung-fu-jive moves and shes very pretty to. Along the way she makes friends and needs there help. Will see sooner or later what happens.moreless

    Ok from the start I was hooked in. It looks like they borrowed afew things from other Tv shows like Roswell. Im talking about Jakes character of course. Its like one minute hes on His racing bike and the next hes acting like typical Michael Guerin fashion. He seems like he would be a cool guy to hang out with in real life. I never could see him as a master. But from the looks of it he seems to know what hes doing. Moving along to Ottos character. He looks like a typical goofball loveing character. Who knows alot but never says much until hes needed. Looking ahead to Cheryl. Is it me or does hollywood see alot of short haired blonde women in new stuff from tv shows. I think of Smallville and Roswell come to mind. Cheryls character is cool. Shes quirky and doesnt seem like shes absent minded. She seems to fit in with Otto and not drive Jake up a wall that much. On to Heaven The tv shows star. Shes a princess and knows how to use a sword and use her girl power. I hope to see this tv show take off. Maybe two seasons at most will see. Whomever put this together knew what they were doing. So ill just hope it returns and soon.moreless
