Summary of "Season 1 - 2-Disc Director's Cut - Go Afro!":
Afro Samurai was a fun way to spend a couple of hours. Samuel Jackson was great as Afro, and I enjoyed the behind-the-scenes material that featured him talking about the show, and his love of samurai movies. Speaking of the extras, the names of the featurettes were misleading - they didn't reflect the content at all. I expected the first featurette to be ALL about the voice cast, but it was a "Making of Afro Samurai," while I expected a tour of RZA's recording studio for the second featurette, which should have been called "The Music of Afro Samurai." I liked both featurettes, I just thought they should have given them appropriate names. (read entire review)
