SHOGUN

John Blackthorne was really having a bad day, after being shipwrecked, he was captured, tortured and now torn between two warring clans led by Toranaga and Ishido, the two powerful lords who were competing for the title of Shogun.
I remember watching this back in my elementary school days and never missed any episode so that I would doze off in the morning during class. Shogun is a great miniseries about an English sailor named John Blackthorne who was captured by the Japanese. The story is set in feudal Japan. I love how the two different cultures meet, English and Japanese. The story unfolds through Blackthorne’s POV as he was a stranger captured after being shipwrecked and finally became a respected figure among his captors thus nicknamed Anjin-San. Glad I have the DVD so I can watch it anytime.
