Samurai Champloo is one of the most entertaining adventures in the samurai genre. Three unwilling companions set out on a journey across Edo period Japan. A young woman looking for a possibly nonexistent samurai that smells like sunflowers, a wild swordsman looking to challenge absolutely anyone who irritates him, and a taciturn ronin with a hidden past forge an unlikely bond. Though set in the 17th century, Samurai Champloo has a hip-hop sensibility, with many modern references and themes. The dialogue is extremely witty and the characters endearing. The artwork is modern and full of clever effects. This is not your typical factory-generated anime. Check Our Catalog

A bit on the sugary side but fans of the 1970s series will enjoy the trip down memory lane--and the full color production. Check Our Catalog 
Roman history and political skullduggery come alive in this BBC miniseries. Has something of a stagey feel (in a good way), the dialogue is sharp, and the saga of the "half-wit" Roman emperor engaging. If you enjoyed HBO's "Rome" miniseries, this one picks up about where "Rome" left off. Check Our Catalog
