Samurai Jack - Episode XXIII television review

Throwback Tuesday takes us back to the adventures of the time-displaced samurai and his quest to make his way home. Aku (Mako) calls on Demongo (Kevin Michael Richardson) who he hopes may succeed where his other minions have failed and deal with Samurai Jack (Phil LaMarr). Demongo turns out to be an interesting change of pace for the show, not only because he isn’t a robotic warrior of some kind but because rather than fight Jack himself, the soul collector sends out the essence of previously defeated heroes to battle the samurai. This provides a heavy amount of action for the episode. It doesn’t matter how many times Jack beats them back, Demongo simply releases the warriors again and again (until Jack discovers the way to defeat them is to free the trapped warriors from the soul collector’s control). Demongo is one of the familiar faces who will return for a cameo in the show’s final season.
