What ANIMATION are you VIEWING?
On the one hand, the Netflix show is probably shit compared to the anime and a recent viewing will just highlight this.
On the other hand maybe the complement each other well.
On the gripping hand you will ha e just seen one of the best animes ever so even if you nope out of the LA show at least you saw the anime
And John Cho’s wig looks terrible.
I feel for the creators. What are they supposed to do? Cowboy Bebop is weird. It encompasses Alien, Pierrot le Fou and the mushroom episode. It’s more a tone than a fully realized universe. You could more easily create an original series about a garrison of Gondor’s soldiers protecting Osgiliath than anything new with the Bebop crew. You could lean into the crime stories, but it wouldn’t feel right without the immortal harmonica player or adventures in Betamax or Cowboy Andy.

With the decisions they've made so far has put this on the HARD PASS list for me. I'll just stick with the anime.
The live action show might be good. It also might be bad. I do not know which.
An episode generally starts in medias res with Batman and a guest star wrapping up some adventure. Then the opening credits roll, followed by the main portion of the episode, often featuring a different guest star. This is a silver age Batman, so he is like a dignified version of Adam West Batman. There is some humor in the mix, but the best lines only elicit a smile from me. Good fun for the whole family. The nostalgia gets to me, as one of the first few comics that I bought as a kid was an issue of The Brave & the Bold that featured Etrigan the Demon, and he appears in one of the early episodes of the show.
There is also a hilarious skewering of “gritty” Batman fandom delivered by Batmite.
