Long ago in a distant land, I, Aku, the shape-shifting Master of Darkness, unleashed an unspeakable evil! But a foolish Samurai warrior wielding a magic sword stepped forth to oppose me. Before the final blow was struck, I tore open a portal in time and flung him into the future, where my evil is law! Now the fool seeks to return to the past, and undo the future that is Aku!Every episode of Genndy Tartakovsky's Samurai Jack began with this thrilling introduction told by Aku, our hero's primary nemesis in the series. And thus for those 20+ minutes, we'd be taken away to a distant future where are time displaced hero would do his best to continue the fight against Aku and find his way home.
The original cartoon ran for four seasons before it ended somewhat abruptly without a true conclusion. We never learned if Jack found his way home or if he even at least had a last big confrontation with Aku. And that was the situation until now.
With the final fifth season finally starting to air, it seems a good time as any to celebrate Samurai Jack in all his glory. And the folks at ChannelFrederator did this with their own 107 facts video about our samurai lost in time.
