Summary of "The Complete 1st Season - Ninjas kick ass!":
While the quality of the set could have been a bit better, and the extras certainly don't come close to the animated sets from BCI, I really enjoyed Shadow Warriors. Patrick Macias said it best in the liner notes:
    From high to low, Shadow Warriors is that rare TV series that seems to have everything in check: action, mystery, comedy, and drama with a high quality of storytelling and production throughout.
I knew there would be a lot of action ('s a ninja show!), but I was also impressed with the deep political stories that set the scene for the action. Unlike some American shows from the 80s which were heavy on the action, and light on the story, Shadow Warriors was a good mix of both. Reading the subtitles, which I was worried would be distracting, became second-nature as I went through the set, and now I can't wait for more Hattori Hanzo to be released.

If you can overcome the flaws in the video, and don't mind reading subtitles, then you should buy this set - it's a great series. (read entire review)
