How I saw it: on TV, years ago; on video (rented from Netflix), over the past few days
Special effects/design: Good.
Subjective Rating: 8/10 (Great). There are a couple episodes that are bad, but most are great and a couple are among the best of the series. The production values are still low, but they’re trying harder; the show’s timing and design are leaning in a much more Samurai Jack-ish direction than I remember from the first two seasons.
Objective Rating: 3.2/4 (Very good).
