glad some one is bringing it back. I really enjoyed it

Ha! I love Jack! This was an awesome show, but I never got to finish it. Didn’t they make a movie for it as well?

Couldn’t really find much about a movie:

Frederator Blogs: It’s Been a Busy Day

I think they ran out of funds.

Yea, that’s two years old so I guess so. That’s a bummer, it would been a great one. I like all of that guy’s shows.

Good times. I always watch cartoon network just to see this show.

The last Toonami show :frowning:

I loved this show, watched it when it first began, watched it on the Jetstream, I just really liked the show.

His fight against the shinobi robot is one of if not the best fight ever done.

Cartoonetwork Died when they Canceled toonami. Toonami was the best thing to ever happen to anime in america Am right?

Yes, you are. I enjoyed Miguzi too.

And I do miss Jack. It was sad when Mako (voice of Aku) died. Even if they do more with it, it won’t be the same without him. :frowning:

You did read that Boomerang is showing Samurai Jack right now, didn’t you?

Yes, I found it on Boomerang and I am watching it again.

Or…you can just get them on dvd an watch it anytime you want. I think I’ll watch it right now.

Starting tomorrow night (Saturday, August 29), they are starting at the beginning again.

I never really watched it. It seemed to appeal too much for little kids.

If anyone’s interested, this is starting over on Boomerang.

First episode tomorrow night, Monday, August 2 @ 11:00pm ET/10:00pm CT

I don’t know if it’s just me or what but when I look at Boomerang Nighttime, it really makes me think Toonami is still with us. You got Pokemon, Samurai Jack, The Batman, Teen Titans, Jonny Quest, etc. It’s good to see a classic network get involved with what made CN so great in years past.

Samurai Jack is great TV. I’m glad Boomerang is sticking with it. :slight_smile:

What I want to know is why is Robin the leader of the Teen Titans? He doesn’t even have a power. But I like seeing those shows again too. With some of the stupid cartoons kids are watching nowadays Samurai Jack was really unique.

I will totally watch this, if I have the channel. Never finished that show, but I’d really like to.

Yeah and back in 2002 Toonami had some neat shows alongside it.
