The latest show I watched was actually a Japanese anime, Lupin III. It was episode 77 or so of the second season. This particular episode was probably one of the weaker capers in the series, but it was still entertaining, and this marks my last episode of the 2003 English dub to watch, as I've seen the rest of the dubbed episodes already. It used to be on Adult Swim from around 2003 to 2006, but it only showed twenty-six episodes. My cousin introduced me to the show back one day, and I got into watching this, and still do sporadically to this day.
There's supposedly also a rumor that Steven Spielberg liked one of the series' movies, "The Castle of Cagliostro," and he considers it to be one of the greatest adventure films of all time, "There is a long-standing rumour that Steven Spielberg saw Castle of Cagliostro when it was shown at the Cannes film festival and called its car chase one of the greatest chase sequences ever filmed, and/or called Cagliostro 'one of the greatest adventure movies of all time.' While this rumour has not been specifically verified, Manga Video considered it credible enough to mention on the back cover of its DVD release." I wonder if this is true. I know I've read another post before connecting George Lucas to the film. It does make me wonder if this was at least some inspiration behind "Raiders of the Lost Ark", if it could have been the general pacing of the film's action, or some of the romance... Of course, "Raiders of the Lost Ark" and the Indiana Jones series in general is obviously, mostly inspired by Golden Age adventure films and serials.
