Gotta Recap: A Samurai Jack Rewatch Podcast
Episode XXI: Jack and the Dragon

Episode XXI: Jack and the Dragon

September 1, 2021

There are few topics that could inspire the longest episode of this podcast to date. Fortunately, Nick and Brendan are oversized children, and they're able to stay mightily invested in this week's subject: big, smelly farts.

Between talk of Psychonauts 2, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and the classic board game Operation, we do manage to squeeze in plenty of thoughts on what may be the most buck-wild episode of Samurai Jack yet. Warning: scratch and sniff cards NOT recommended for this week's viewing.

Episode XX: Jack and the Monks

August 25, 2021

Samurai Jack sets out on a dangerous journey, and Nick and Brendan have some questions. What’s up with these three strange monks he meets? What is this mystical power they speak of, and why is it all the way at the top of a big, scary mountain? Did any of this really happen? Join us as we feel smart for once in our miserable lives!

Episode XVIII: Jack and the Ultra-Robots

Episode XVIII: Jack and the Ultra-Robots

August 11, 2021

"Jack only fights robots," we said. "It's alright because it's just dead robots," we thought. Little did we know that robot murder would be perhaps the most chilling topic we've seen on this show so far.

Nick and Brendan time travel back to the magical year of 2001 to briefly celebrate Samurai Jack's 20th anniversary, then spend a long time decompressing after a stressful, action-pack episode that sees Jack duking it out with some evil robots who don't hesitate to butcher their fellow robot brethren. It's a violent one, folks!
