    Cowboy Bebop - 1st Session by Shinichiro Watanabe (wademlee)
    wademlee: Both TV series are space westerns, and feature a rag tag crew of characters on the fringe of the law forming an alternate family of their own. In one they are bounty hunters, the other, smugglers, but both combine humor and action with sci fi themes.

A truly excellent series that combines humour, heart and (reluctant) heroics in often surprising combinations. The all too quickly cancelled series is, in short, a space western about a permanently down-on-their-luck smuggler crew. But it's not what it is, but rather how memorably it is it, that is "Firefly"'s lasting genious. It sadly ends before it can have much of a plot arc to speak of, but it is rather astonishing how much character arc and development the various crew members still get in the half-season it had. I've watched hundreds to television shows, but I'm hard pressed to think of a single one where, once it ended, I this desperately wanted to spend more time with virtually every single character. ( )

This was good. The frustrated relationship between the doctor and the engineer was hilarious and Wash, the pilot, is hilarious solo.

Apparently, this show is essentially a remake of a 1970s British show which is virtually impossible to obtain. ( )

Space cowboys on the run from the law.

So much fun to watch. Of course, it doesn't have an ending, but I'm fine with that - it doesn't really need one.

A si-fi series which tries to be a futuristic Western. ( )
  papyri | Mar 29, 2014 |
(Reviewed 2011) Substance: Despite the inanity of the milieu (25th century cowboys-in-space with complete gravity in a space ship run by 1 engineer and 1 pilot, but still using handguns and suspenders), the holes in the individual plots (some are worse than others), and the stereotypical story-lines, the series is over-all a satisfying experience. The characters are interesting, diverse, and fun.
Style: Gets a little too artsy at times, or else they didn't pay the cameraman that week.
Rating: Moderate skin display, sexual situations, some language. (One of the couples is actually married.) ( )
