First was Lone Wolf and Cub: Baby Cart at the River Styx. Once again, a movie, not TV show, and its production values were much better. The combat sequences were gore-covered. The story includes recognizable events from the manga.
Next, I watched Syriana. It's disjoint, and confusing. Even when it culminates, it really doesn't make all that much sense. In the end, it's a political diatribe, and not much else.
Finally, I watched another episode of Farscape (season one, number three) and I'm still not all that impressed. However, I will continue to run with it for the time being.
