    Honestly, I didn't think this was a very good show. It wasn't anywhere NEAR as bad as "The Secret Life," a really terrible show, but it still wasn't very good. The action was solid, and the story wasn't too awful, but there are a bunch of issues I took notice of- why the hell does a japenese girl speak perfect english, with no accent, even when she's in japan?

Why does she even have a wedding in america? Realistically, most people in america don't go to japan to get married, right? Why is the very first action scene of the series so... lame? Everybody dies instantly, and there is no time to even get to know any of the characters that died, so nobody cares if they die. Why is the name so lame? Samurai Girl? Are you for real!?! But, it could be much worse. Expand

    Samurai Girl takes up a lot of time and space, but manages to do only one surprising thing: prove that it's possible to be action-packed and dull at the same time.

    The winning Samurai has lots of action, and is generously peppered with comedic asides. [5 Sep 2008, p.70]
  3. Although the drama is sometimes over the top and not always palpable, the action is nonstop. For that, "Samurai" will more than please action-adventure fans.
