So I know I'm in the 2% minority that actually liked this show, but I've been watching the "lost" episodes of The Problem Solverz that were uploaded to Netflix and nowhere else when Cartoon Network stopped airing the show over the air, and for the most part I'm enjoying them. They ended up tweaking the character designs a bit and the background colors were toned down a bit to be less of an assault to the eyes, which for this show isn't saying a ton because there's a lot going on lol.

Even when it first premiered, I never really hated it like everyone else. Once you get past the bizarre, avant garde exterior, the content of the show itself is no different from the standard kids cartoon - it was just splashed with a very vivid and very loud coat of paint. At the very least, I commend CN for being experimental and giving something this strange a chance, because there's no way in hell Nick or Disney would have touched something like this...or at least at the time for Disney, considering they have Two More Eggs from The Brothers Chaps and Right Now Kapow airing on XD nowadays.

To think it started as an Adult Swim pilot of all things.

So I finally watched the episode and wow, damn lol

Spoiler

I liked the Aku part in the beginning. It was silly but I felt like it still fit, cause Aku has always had silly moments in the older seasons. The new voice actor is pretty good; not perfect, but it still sounds enough like Aku.

The part in that glowy room or whatever, when the song started (like AGSMA said) I was like "wtf is this Ecstacy of Gold" cause it sounded really similar. But damn the action was really intense. And the end was a very dramatic cliffhanger.

The wolf part just felt like filler, I guess the wolf was a metaphor for Jack but it didn't really need to be in the episode imo.

Also, I hope this won't be taken down but here's the "Ecstacy of Gold" song from the new episode.

I don't really criticize the show too much objectively for looking ugly to me, since it IS a subjective stance and all.  I don't even think Genndy is a bad artist or animator; I loved Dexter's Lab and his style meshed incredibly well with what that show was, leaving me with pretty much zero complaints.  But when you put his style into a concept like Samurai Jack, a show that is trying to be an action/drama (while also still a kid's comedy, I mean, the show was/is fucking funny when it wants to be.  I wish it'd channel more of that and less at the attempts to be literary or dramatic, which is what is really drawing my ire towards how the show looks), it starts really distracting me.  It tries to frame a scene of Jack silently walking through a picture-esque forest, only all the trees look like kids drew them and they're obviously digitally layered over each other in a computer program. 

I guess what I'm generally amused by is the fact that a show like, say, Johnny Test comes along and people heavily criticize it for cutting a lot of corners in animation and looking ugly and stilted but along cums Samurai Jack that does a lot of the same corner cutting but because it's generally regarded as nostalgic, everyone accepts it as looking great- even if they're the same people that bashed a show like Johnny Test only moments ago.

i give this piece'a shit 0 out of 10 *shoots it with his gun*

 

Dexter's Lab sucked though, I was not really into it even back in the day.

I dunno, it's one thing to dislike it but I don't think it "sucked". It was a funny show with good designs and animation, at least until the later seasons.

Also Dexter's dad is hot

This is being made into a series next year, it's cliché, cringy and I won't be watching it, but it's better than Bottom's Butte (which I'm surprised didn't get greenlit)

On the contrary, I enjoy its low key charm and its simplicity reminds me of early Regular Show, so I think with a few tweaks it could be even better.

But yeah, Bottom's Butte was ass. I don't care if it was created by Eileen's voice actor, it wasn't very good at all.

The main problem with it is that Beverly and Peanut seem to have no consequences for their actions (Unlike Mordecai and Rigby who would get fired/die if they didn't fix the problems they created)
