Cowboy Bebop: Season 1 (2021)


Season 1
Cowboy Bebop

Critics Consensus

Maybe next time, Space Cowboy -- this live-action Bebop has a fun enough crew to spend time with, but it disappointingly replaces the soulfulness of the source material with kitsch.

Audience Reviews for Cowboy Bebop: Season 1

    A total waste of time. Shows nowadays are idealess. All they do, is find shows that are already popular, cal then problematic and decide to make their own edited, sanitized version of it. The cast is okay, but the writing is terrible! The show-runners and actors aren't doing the show any favours, either.

    Nothing can compare to the original. But, had the original not existed this would be much higher rated. Compared to the last 3 star wars films this is 5 Million Stars.

    Bad live action remakes that seek to rake in money just through standing on the shoulders of giants go brrrrrrrrrr

    It took a few episodes to really get going, but this show was fun to watch, exceptionally cast and overall just well done. A fresh take on the original anime while somehow managing to still hit familiar notes and ultimately staying true to the source. I thought that this was an improvement in many ways, although I didn't go into it with any expectations. In fact, I wasn't sure that I would like it after the first episode, but I'm glad I stuck with it and gave it a chance. This is sure to end up being a cult classic where true fans of the original will appreciate the effort it must have taken to create something new and different while paying respect to what came before. I really hope that they make more of these. Don't let the naysayers fool you, things that are actually good and that tend to stand up over time don't often receive overwhelming support in the beginning. This was good. Really good.

    I watched a few episodes then made the mistake of watching one of the animated series. The contrast is very stark. It's just not as compelling, or as rich in background and character.

    A lot of fun. I have not seen the source material. So everything in this felt fresh creative and interesting. Could use a bit more budget, though.

    Loved it, i watched the Anime as a kid and thought it was a amazing. Now its not a direct re-make of the anime it has its own take which was awesome, they made Faye such a better character i thought her performance was amazing.
