Lone Wolf & Cub TV series Question

Unread post by oldeschool17 » 09 Sep 2009, 22:12

How is the tv series compared to the 6 movies? On par, better, or worse? I know the main characters are different.

For starters, I read somwhere that it's far less bloody and exploitative, because it's been made for Television in the first place.

I think Sam said it's great.

Naturally it won't be as great as the movies, because nothing is.

Will give it a try later this fall, probably.

add $16 shipping to that (to the uk at least) i think the series is excellent and while not a match for the films it's a really strong effort with fine performances from the 2 leads.yes it's far less bloody but still pretty intense stuff for tv and has very good production values.i've only seen the first 3 volumes,i'm waiting till 4-6 appear in box set form before buying.

Don't know. My Box Set is somewhere between New Jersey and my mailbox. I'll let you know once it arrives.

$20+$2.95 express shipping(USA). Not a bad price if you ask me. The packaging is simply a regular case that can fit 6 discs. No fancy box/slipcover. If you had the box sets of Zatoichi TV series, it's in that same vein but with obvious Lone Wolf & Cub manga-ish type artwork w/ screenshots of the show.

Im sure the box set for vol 4-6 will come soon enough. I wonder if they will proceed with the next season. If Zatoichi TV series is an indicator, my guess is no.
