if only the liking people had for squid game was transferred to this show 😔
Not Recommended
The Development team made one crucial error. They entered into the game an automatic sentry gun called a "Puckle."

Watched this whole run this weekend

They actually did a decent job for the most part with striking a balance between grit and silliness i think, which is the part I had worried about

But it’s unforgivable how much extra crap they introduced into the vicious/Julia storyline. Those are supposed to be genre tropes, not actual characters

The ending was also way too upbeat

Yeah. I also agree with you about the balance between grit and silliness being struck well.

When and if the 2nd season happens, said ending will flow nicely into that season opener

musically and visually this show was aces

So I looked at the Ed reveal only after watching the first episode, and I take back any kind words I said about the show. Whoever mentioned foam adventure was spot on. I think I'm done.

Like the fact that they made the hair drastically red and styled and not just messy is such a weird choice. Also, the voice is too literal an attempt at the voice, when it should just be a doofy kid. They just end up sounding like a con-kid.

I like this show.

I wasn’t huge into the anime but watched enough to appreciate the effort put into capturing that vibe.

It's an okay scifi show. Maybe it didn't need to be cowboy bebop?

Weird thing that stuck out to me, the French supersoldier reciting the blade runner monologue and the very next scene Jet asks Spike if he was at the shoulder of Orion or the Tannhauser Gate.Toggle Spoiler just an out of place reference played straight. or lame fan service.

It was lame fan service, it doesn’t even make sense within the context of how space travel works in cowboy bebop

that's another thing. it was very terrestrial, not zero-g.

rewatched the space trucker episode, it works better animated so it's good the remake didn't try
