Samurai Girl is a TV mini-series that aired on FreeForm in 2008, based on the popular young adult novel series by Carrie Asai. The show stars Jamie Chung as Heaven, a young woman who discovers she is the daughter of a powerful and wealthy Japanese businessman, Ishikawa, played by Anthony Wong. Heaven is devastated when her father is murdered, and she sets out on a journey to uncover the truth behind his death and claim her rightful inheritance.

Heaven is not your typical heiress, though; she has been trained in the martial arts and is an expert swordswoman. She is accompanied on her journey by her loyal and handsome bodyguard, Jake, played by Brendan Fehr, as well as her father's former employee and family friend, Gwen, played by Stacy Keibler. Together, the three of them must navigate a world of danger and intrigue as they search for the truth about Ishikawa's death.

The show is set in a world of wealth and privilege, with lavish locations and high fashion playing a prominent role. However, there is also a darker side to this world, with secrets and betrayals lurking around every corner. As Heaven begins to uncover the truth about her father's death, she realizes that there is more at stake than just her inheritance. She must also confront the demons of her family's past and learn to trust those around her, even when they may have been part of the conspiracy that led to her father's demise.

One of the standout elements of Samurai Girl is the action-packed fight scenes. Jamie Chung shines as Heaven, and her martial arts training is clearly on display as she takes on a variety of bad guys throughout the series. The fight choreography is well-executed, and the battles are intense and exciting to watch.

The show also has a strong emotional core, with themes of family and loyalty running throughout. As Heaven delves deeper into her father's past, she must come to terms with the truth of who he was and what he stood for. Along the way, she also learns more about herself and what she is capable of, both as a warrior and as a person.

Overall, Samurai Girl is an enjoyable and engaging TV mini-series that combines elements of action, drama, and mystery. The cast is strong, and the story is compelling, with plenty of twists and turns to keep viewers guessing. While the show only ran for one season, it has become a cult favorite among fans who appreciate its unique blend of Japanese culture, martial arts, and coming-of-age themes.

Samurai Girl is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (12 episodes). The series first aired on September 5, 2008.
