Here's a few off the top of my head!
I think the best one of all is Townsville!
How the hell did the timeline work? Somehow, three years later, a desperado suddenly has a successful, established ranch and a 12 year old kid?
I thought the implication was he already had the ranch but was just a scumbag who hired desperados to kill people and take their shit if they got in his way or whatever.
I'll have to keep my eye out for this one.
BTW Champloo is real. And the mixed up Okinawan dish of that name is quite tasty.
This and other fun details about the show are in:
Also, Samurai Champloo is awesome. Can't be repeated enough.
Najubes, rest in peace!
