The Zatoichi television series is just as good as the film series that preceded it. In fact many may prefer the television series.
Since each episode is reduced to 55 minutes, you get to the climatic fight a lot sooner, and since the plot has to be simplified to accommodate less characters, the films are easier to follow.
Season 1 of the Zatoichi TV series continues with these 4 exciting episodes.
