What Soul Samurai has: swords, breakdancing, lesbians, Asian stereotypes. What it lacks: rollerskating chimps. Despite this, an enjoyable night out. Definitely got better as it progressed so I imagine it will continue to improve with each performance. Everyone at my show laughed out loud. A lot. The audience, I mean.
