There was a new season of Samurai Jack, wasn't there? Is it worth watching?

No F Troop in your bonus list?

I haven't seen the new seasons, as I don't have cable anymore, but I'm pretty certain it's much more adult oriented than the original series. I'm not saying it's better or worse, cause I don't know, but I'm under the impression it's a very different kind of cartoon now.

I've never seen F Troop. I honestly didn't know it existed until five minutes ago.

I put it in a similar class as Get Smart, so I figured you'd have known it. I haven't seen an episode in 25 years, so maybe it hasn't aged well.

rd95 nailed it re: assumptions for the latest and final season of Samurai Jack.

It seemed more a tying of loose ends with many cameo's to stand-out episodes in prior seasons. Aside from the fan-service dulling the plot (to me), it's clear the team still could whip up refreshing, clever action sequences. Compounded with how Jack's psyche negotiates with seeing what he's seen up to this point, I'd say it's worth the watch, but not much outstanding praise.
