It's pretty fucking good, I haven't seen this before. About halfway through the marathon on Encore.

I remember that as a kid. Don't remember shit about it other than it had that gay dude from the thornbirds in it.

Pretty good, the book is good as well. It was actually loosely based on a real guy.

Read the book along with the follow ons, Taipan and Noble House. Excellent.

I read that book several times in middle school.

Liked it too. Watched it back when it was broadcasted the first time. Picked up some Japanese watching it. lol I felt it slowed down in the last episode though. This series in a way reminds me of the Tom Cruise movie The Last Samurai.

Awesome! Thanks for the heads up on this. Haven't seen it since I was a kid.

I just remember watching it as a kid and some dude's head getting chopped off by a samurai. The End.

That reminded me of how at work, as we all watched the series, we all started using Japanese phrases to each other, and calling each other "Robert-san".

I was actually surprised at how much Japanese I picked up very easily.



Hai!

Between that and the earthquake scene that had guys getting crushed, it really made an impression on my 10 year-old mind!

It does have some sweet ninja action.

Loved the book, had no idea there was a mini series.
Link Posted: 1/20/2013 5:44:09 PM EDT
Loved it as a kid. It's been a long time since I've seen it though, but I remember it being very good.
