I want to show it to my friend, he says that SJ is Tumblr bulshit just because he discovered that Gendy helped to create Steven Universe.
>>

Show your friend, literally any 10 episodes of Samurai Jack and if he doesn't jizz over how good all aspects of the show are... well, I haven't thought that far ahead, you could just punch him I guess.

>>77957741
What? Gendy helped to created SU? Guess that SJ os really a tumblr show.

I have trouble thinking of any episodes that aren't amazing.

The first two episodes that introduce the setting, the episode with the blind archers, the one with the mobsters, and the one robot with emotions all stand out as some of the best. Not to mention any episode with the Scotsman.

How the comic handled it?
>>
>>77957741
Considering Jack came out 10 years before SU it is definitely NOT tumblr bullshit. It's a goddamn masterpiece.

Honestly all of the episodes are great.

If you want incredible artwork, Samurai Jack vs. the shinobi is fucking perfection.

if you want epic fucking fights, the 3rd episode, against the giant robot beetle army is a great way to start the series, really showing off how much of a badass Jack is. Dome of doom is good too.

Great story? Jack and the spartans, the good the bad and the beautiful, Tale of X9.

My personal favorite is the Bounty hunters episodes. Spend the whole episode hyping up these 5 hunters as the greatest shit ever, then Jack rolls in.

Honestly, tell your friend to shut the fuck up, sit the fuck down and watch the fuck out of this God-tier show

Really it'd be easier to suggest episodes to avoid. Like 90% of them are fucking great. I'd avoid farting dragon, naked jack and chicken jack. The last two I wouldn't recommend because I don't think they provide a good representation of what the rest of the show is like. Farting dragon was just... awkward.

Also your friend is an idiot
>>
>>77957741
Punch your friend. Clock him in the jaw. Just smack him in the gobba and remind him that this show existed before tumblr. Berate them for their pig-headed, hipster ass contemporary bullshit faggotry for judging a show by standards that existed after the show ended.

Besides it's fucking weeb shit. It stars a chinky samurai for fuck's sake.

Samurai Jack was extremely overrated, no need to try to force someone to watch it if they don't feel like it, they are not missing much

Well I would never describe it as a "tumblr show"
What was Gendy's role in SU anyway?

Is there anyone else here who liked SBT more than Samurai Jack? Like, a lot?

OP, does your friend have green lips, demon teeth, flaming eyebrows and is constantly shit-talking Samurai Jack all the time? I have bad news for you, my friend.
Jack and the Haunted House best story
Jack vs the Zombies best choreography
>>
>>77973276
He helped make the pilot iirc.

Is there anyone else here who likes to bring up other shows for no other reason than to say they like them better than the show that the thread is about?

Anyone? Because it's kinda weird to do that.

Relax, autismo.

Why did you faggots tell me this was bad?

Glad to see people mentioning The Princess and the bounty hunters, or was it The Princess and the Samurai I forget? Anyway that was the last I missed watching until a few weeks ago recently. Good times finding an episode you never watched from a good series.

If anything, I'm amazed tumblr doesn't hate Jack as all the women are either evil/manipulative, in need of rescue, or fat.

I can't think of a good looking woman in the show that wasn't evil, aside from Jack's mom.

Chicken Jack is fucking great, in my top 5. It's pretty representative, other than the fact Jack is a chicken for 90% of it. I think anyone would be able to work out that isn't representative of the show as a hole

Then again, this friend of OP's...

Jack and the Blind Archers is the best episode to introduce him with, because it gives a really good idea of what to expect from the series and why people like it.

Over 50 episodes the story never progressed, at the end Jack was as far from killing Aku as he was on episode 3, that really disappointed me, specially since I watched SBT before Samurai Jack and was hoping for something similar in terms of story telling, the show didn't fit its own episodic format, it was asking for story arcs, and progression on Jack's goal, but it never happened, "the birth of evil" was the closer we of that, sort of.

With the main story out of the way, we are left with each episode's story they were fine, hit or miss, but that's just it a few great ones but nothing outstanding. I do realize that this part is 100% my opinion.

The background was the only good part of the art for me, the flat look of the character design was appealing to me, and the action scenes everybody praised was a huge let down, they were just jack slashing the camera most of the time, a compilation of very quick shots, no longer dynamic movements, everyone looked too stiff.

I wish I could like it as much as everyone else, maybe I just lost the opportunity to watch it as a kid, but for me it is a 6/10
>>
>>77978709
>it was asking for story arcs
I have no idea how anyone can watch the show and be this wrong.

It was never meant to be a continuous story. Every episode after the pilot is stand-alone, and with the exception of the Scotsman episodes they can be watched in any order.
>>
>>77957741
If someone uses a term like "Tumblr bulshit" irl, that is a serious sign that you should drop them as a friend as soon as possible.
>>
>>77957741
>my faggot friend got triggered by le tumblr boogeyman!

Get new friends, OP. Holy shit people need to stop assuming shows they've never seen before are tumblr shit because of who's working on them. And about Samurai Jack, no less? Fucking pathetic.

Samurai Jack is probably the only cartoon I've ever seen that has little to no bad or filler episodes, it has great, interesting storylines, entertaining unique characters, and beautiful animation and sound design.

I think that the announcement of new samurai jack is the most united I've ever seen not just 4chan, but all web communities.

children really can't appreciate the show, i know as a kid i didn't enjoy it but it became better with time.
>>

I'm kind of the same, and I imagine that's why it didn't do so well financially. As a kid, I loved the more action heavy episodes but I couldn't really appreciate the art, characters, and especially the sound and ambience as much as today.

After just watching the full series last year it's become my favorite cartoon.

There was even an episode where he decided to make a jump contest with Scotman, and them blew him by jumping much higher.

The scotman asked him what the fuck was that, and he answered "jump good".

It's always a "normal" jump.
In "Jack and the Monks" Jack could've scaled the mountain in a dozen good jumps.
I must've missed that Scotsman episode though.

>>77981077
Sadly that was pretty much the only time he used that.
>>
>>77957741
I'm convinced people who make threads like this just want to talk to people about whatever topic and use SJW/tumblr to get easy responses. Like I bet OP just wants to check out the show and rather than do a rec thread decided to do this.

OP, his opinions are shit. Get better friends.

>>77986773
That episode with his sandals are one of them.

The episode where he is a kid, and had to fight evil cultists of Aku on Africa is also cool and comfy.
>>
ok no one is mentioning it but the first episode of jack is a must see in order to understand the entire show. i know the intro basically spells it out but this episode gives a bit more context to it and is the first episode anybody should watch.
the first episode of jack with the dogs
jack and the ultrabots
jack and the mondobot
jack and the three blind archers
jack and the rave
jack and the 300
jack and demongo
these pretty much have to be shown last
all the jack and the scotsman episodes
there is 3 if i remember correctly.
>>
>>77976736
all those blind and disabled characters were predominately evil
also to add jack and the rave pretty much said all this new shit kids like is evil garbage.
>>
>>77978709
the story of samurai jack is his journey back to the past
he already has the skills to defeat and kill aku in single combat from the very first episode when he was standing over his broken and defeated body.
killing aku in the future might make his journey to the past easier but aku has to much political and military power behind him and the time jack would have to take to bring down akus destruction is time he could spend looking for a way to the past. killing aku in the future is an unnecessary step to his goals.

the only thing jack needs to do is find a way to the past, if you are upset jack didnt complete the only goal he has to defeat aku in 50 episodes then you missed the point of samurai jack
>>
>>77987125
Jack tried to kill Aku on some episode, on some he actvelly tried going after him.

Them Aku decided to change the location of his base all the time, making it impossible.
>>
>>77981288
jumping up a mountain... where the ledge could crumble underneath your feet for just stepping on them.
no, going the slow way, is the smart way

They are literally all super good except the farting dragon one, and even that one's still kinda good cause of the cool design of the dragon insides
>>

>>
>>77957741
the episode with the bounty hunters
the episode with lulu, sweet thing.
>>
>>77987191
yep which goes back to it would make his quest easier if he died. its a perk, not a necessity for him to accomplish his mission.
if jack sees the opportunity to just out and kill aku, he would do it, but the time and effort to assault his base s one after anouther, would be a wasted effort.
>>
i have a question
was jack and the scottsman a reference to the simpsons episode where willy declares scots and japanese mortal enemies
>>
>>77987963
No because half a second latter he proceeds to explain that scots are enemies with everyone, including other scots.

Damn scots, they ruined Scotland.
>>
>>77988071
yeah but the Japanese were mentioned first
i just thought it would be a cool slip reference

Unrelated question, what Jack's time supposed to be? I just watched the first episode and I'm not very /his/, but I don't think all of those societies he travels to existed at the same time.
>>
>>77988506
they didnt
and no one knows for sure
its just supposed to be a montage of jack learning from the best fighters of that time
>>
>>77988506
I don't think it really matters. The whole point was just to establish Jack has being a multi-ranged/melee master so the writers can just have Jack use basically anything when he's not swording everything to death.
>>
>>77986561
Not really. You don't point out fallacies, you acknowledge them. Someone isn't necessarily wrong because they're using a fallacy. They often are but not always, and just going "fallacy" isn't really attacking their argument.
