    I definitely like his entries….

    “Okay, start shutting up!”

    Etc.

    I think I watched most of it while hanging outside making pulled pork in my smoker last summer. Watched it and The Mick after I watched It's Always Sunny for the first time.

    The first two seasons aired on NBC, they cancelled it, and it was resurrected for two Peacock-only seasons.

    I'm not in the US. It's on Netflix for me.

    Netflix has canceled the live-action Cowboy Bebop after one season. (sauce)

    ^ Thanks, Netflix! Just because some of us haven't gotten to it the week it released. That's an incredibly quick cancellation.

    Sometimes execs have incredibly twitchy trigger fingers. Other times, they pick up a series just so they'll have something to cancel...

    It's all about the algorithm.

    The one bit from the Variety article that really grabbed me was that Cowboy Bebop was supposed to be the kickoff for a whole bunch of live-action adaptations of various anime properties, including One Piece and Pokémon. Have to wonder if the bosses at Netflix are reevaluating that whole strategy now.

    Ditto. I'm not familiar with the original anime, but flicked through the first couple of minutes and added it to my watchlist.

    In the lap of squalor I assure you.
    The title is misleading.

    Westerns suck.

    For every Blazing Saddles, Back to the Future III or Django Unchained, there's every movie Clint Eastwood ever made, except for Every Which Way But Loose.

    Netflix has been adapting anime to love action for years. The algorithm seems to predict it would be a bigger hit than it has been

    Sounds like an expensive proposition. The thing was released just a few weeks ago. You sometimes have to give things a chance to find their audience.

    They do not. Most Netflix views occur in the first couple weeks of release.

    Part of the 'instant gratification' of the Streaming world, I guess. *sigh*

    The algorithm knows all. All kneel before the algorithm.

    I counter with Ennio Morricone. Ecstasy of Gold is an incredible piece of music.

    The Dr. Oz Show is ending next year. So there's your next full-time Jeopardy host. :p
