Really? Disagree on that. The impression of the Malkier in the books was that they were based on Asian culture. I more or less pictured Lan exactly how he is portrayed in the show... maybe just with longer hair. The golden crane as their banner (cranes as a symbol are seen commonly in asian culture) as well as the hadori which the men wear which seemed Japanese to me.The only one that seems quite removed from the perception of how the character was viewed is Lan.
Was always portrayed as being something more like Tolkien battled hardened Dunedain than the Samurai like Lan the show went with.
Just doesn't seem as imposing as Lan should. Mads would have made a great Lan.
