They definitely spent money on this production....impressive so far. I am trying to watch and not compare to the anime...
742630, this part....|

I have my gripes here and there, but Im trying to enjoy it for what it is without comparing and so far I really like it.

The bounty hunter commercial was perfect though...I fell out laughing when that popped up.
742724, Disagree on John Cho|

He was no Spike Spiegel at all to me. That character (all of them really) was very clearly developed and Cho hit very few of the marks. Spike's a super laid back, disinterested, slacker... unless it's about Julia or Vicious, you don't really get a rise out of him.
I don't think Cho was unwatchable, but it wasn't Spike.
Vicious though, that dude was pretty much unwatchable. So terrible.
Jet and Faye by contrast, were almost spot-on personality wise.
742735, I blame the writing|

I think this is all writing, the clearly wrote the character a lot different. His focus seemed to be more about his past which made him super serious. It wasn't the aloof(or pretending to be aloof) Spike that the anime has. My biggest beef is the anime gave them a whole lot to work with and they could've expanded with that instead of creating something thats different.
>Vicious though, that dude was pretty much unwatchable. So
Terrible unwatchable and hammy. They also took the character and made him a joke which is opposite of what we see in the anime. I felt they could've taken the plotline with Vicious and ran with it, but with out him looking comically bad. I also felt the same way about Julia's character, I like what they did in the end but to make her seem so week most of the serious vs the anime it was hinted and shown that she was a strong character that didn't need Spike or Vicious. Just bad characterization
>Jet and Faye by contrast, were almost spot-on personality
742728, its a horrible miscast. he's about 20 years too old for it|
Posted by BrooklynWHAT, Tue Nov-30-21 06:44 PM
Spike isnt old and tired. he's young but already jaded. 30 tops
742748, Yep. Cho is 50 fucking years old.|

Posted by BrooklynWHAT, Sat Nov-20-21 08:44 AM
really thought a Bebop live adaptation couldnt be too hard to get right but they have proved me wrong.
742841, Canceled. No season 2. |

I had a knee-jerk negative reaction the moment it was announced, but I tried to stay open-minded. however, the previews/teasers sealed it. everything just looked off and oddly cheap and amateur-hour for a Netflix production.
that said, part of me still wanted it to succeed ...for some reason. hopefully the soundtrack will get a release so I can at least hear some new Yoko Kanno music without having to suffer the actual show.
