Episode Info

This episode, "Jamming With Edward," is the first appearance of Radical Edward, the 13-year-old girl genius computer hacker, whose trademark is a smiley face. An artificial intelligence satellite carves cave drawings on the surface of Earth, and a huge bounty is placed on the mysterious culprit, believed to be Radical Edward. Thinking hackers are boring, Spike stays on the Bebop while Faye and Jet go to Earth searching for clues. Edward makes contact with the Bebop, and Faye makes a promise to her in exchange for information about the bounty head. Spike gets involved and the crew embarks on the dangerous task of downloading a copy of the A.I. satellite. Due to Faye's promise, Ed officially joins the Bebop crew.

Critic Reviews for Jamming With Edward

Who introduces a lead this late into a limited run? The answer is Shinichiro Watanabe and company do... They take their time; plus when you have a wrecking ball of a character like Ed, you need to ease people into things.

The universe-building in this episode is spectacular.

A rare episode of Cowboy Bebop that doesn't revolve around Spike. It's nice to see the show's creators stretch out and develop another character in such a sprawling but very satisfying way.
