  • I often use this episode to introduce people to Samurai Jack that are not familiar with the series.

    This is definitely one of my favorite episodes for many reasons and a great stylistic representative of the series. As we see Jack's ancient samurai incarnation square off against Mondo Bot, the Cinemascope-like aspect ratio imparts the vast scale of the city, as they tower above it. The encounter is purely visual as there is no dialog during the battle. All we hear are the wonderful sound designs, creative score and the FX mix as the attack on Jack begins. I really can't say enough about the attention to detail in the audio of Samurai Jack. It's the best I've heard on Cartoon Network and for Samurai Jack a potent conveyance of story telling. I really don't want to give anything away but if you are a fan of Spaghetti Westerns, Lone Wolf and Cub and Zatoichi you are sure to enjoy this episode in particular.
