^So far it doesn't seem that much smarter to me. The writing's got some serious logic and intelligence problems, and the characters actually seem more superficial so far than the ones on Samurai
. The main improvement is that the cast is more competent.
Although I haven't actually seen most of this week's episode yet. There were some serious digital glitches in the broadcast that distorted the image and sound, so I gave up after the first act and programmed my DVR to record the rerun on NickToons next Saturday morning. Hopefully that one will come through clearer.
