I was barely born when this miniseries originally aired in the 80's (1980, to be exact), so I never actually got to see it. I checked it out from the library this weekend and am working my way through the DVD set.

Anyone else seen it? Thoughts?

Obviously, it's looks and sounds extremely dated now, but I'm trying to ignore that stuff. Curious what any of you Japanese/Samurai history buffs think.

The costumes and scenery (it was filmed on location in Japan) are fantastic. However, I'm not sure how accurate some of the cultural depictions are. One thing I'm about 99% sure of: there's no freakin' way a foreigner would've been made an "honorary Samurai."
