The Darker Version of Samurai Jack
8 October 2019 | by nasdagoodshepherdSee all my reviews

Tonight, I watched the new animated show for Adult Swim, Primal, from show creator, Genndy Tartakovsky who is well known for creating Dexter's Laboratory, Samurai Jack, Star Wars: The Clone Wars 2003, Sym-Bionic Titan and the Hotel Transylvania franchise. It was beyond amazing, the perfect teamwork between Spear (The cavman) and Fang (The Dinosaur) going on adventures to hunt, kill and survive through many deadly prehistoric creatures that can kill anything or anyone. This is one of the best things Genndy Tartakovsky has ever done. Now it can wait for another episode tomorrow night at midnight! And then, I'll also wait for Hotel Transylvania 4. I give Primal a 9.5/10
