Cowboy Bebop is the jazz-inspired, genre-bending story of Spike Spiegel, Jet Black, Faye Valentine and Radical Ed: a rag-tag crew of bounty hunters on the run from their pasts as they hunt down the solar system's most dangerous criminals. They'll even save the world... for the right price.

We watched the first ep and, OMG, we loved it. The sets are fabulous and the soundtrack is really great! Very different than what I usually hear in action TV/films.

It seems to be a love-it-or-hate-it series. It's been years since I watched the anime and I didn't do a refresher, so I'm diggin' this a lot.

Who'da thunk John Cho could be an action guy? I just know him as Sulu and from some comedies.

Re: Cowboy Bebop (2021)

tried to watch the first episode, was too painfull. If this was made as a serious tv show, it would be good most likely, comedys are not my cup of tea sad

I binged the original Anime last week so that I was refreshed on it.
I've watched the first episode and it's not too bad.  A lot of similarities to the original but not a complete copy.

I'll keep watching

Watching this show felt like tripping at a SF CON where a bunch of cosplayers are putting on a performance... and I'm not saying I hate it... but there are times the trip gets a too hmm

Looking at the review values for each episode here - https://whattowatchon.tv/cowboy-bebop-2021-tt1267295 - I sort of agree with.

They took parts from the original and made them into new stories, which is fine, they need to try and stand out from the original.  The ending was horrible though.  Did not like it at all.
