According to Courier Press “Samurai Girl” is a show to look out for.
— “Samurai Girl” is an action-packed, fantasy-sparked miniseries that follows the transformation of 19-year-old Heaven Kogo from her sheltered status as the daughter of a powerful father in Japan to a samurai in a quest for justice. Heaven’s life takes its shocking turn during her nuptials in San Francisco — an arranged marriage to the son of her father’s business associate. In the midst of the ceremony, a band of ninjas attack, intent on kidnapping her. She manages to flee. But after that, she must take a new, uncharted path: Evading her pursuers and uncovering the ancient prophecy that put her in harm’s way. Starring Jamie Chung (“I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry”), the six-hour “Samurai Girl” airs Friday, Saturday and Sunday (Sept. 5-7) at 8 p.m. EDT on cable’s ABC Family. It also stars Brendan Fehr (“Roswell”) as Heaven’s newfound ally Jake, as well as Kyle Labine and Stacy Keibler.
