…Now, "Shogun" is back thanks to FX, which is producing a 10-episode limited series -- due for release in February 2024 -- based on the book…

Recently ferreted out the old series to watch on the internet. I had forgotten that the main actor was kinda boring. Casting looks beter this time.

Sounds great! Hoping DEI won't ruin the look

Rdfraf, don't worry. It will be a "diverse and inclusive" cast and script that reflects modern Western sensibilities.

We had better have a shocking on screen beheading early in the show to be fair to the original. I also saw a few too many female fighting scenes for a society where women were subservient.

A society where fighting women were a fairly constant presence on the field of battle, including entire units. Archaeological evidence suggesting numbers as high as 30%:

Did not know that. I think is one will focus far more on Japanese characters than the first one.

Looks that way from the trailer.
