Cowboy Bebop [TV]

Cowboy Bebop
Plot Summary

See You Space Cowboy is the titular theme of this space odyssey action show, Cowboy Bebop. Earning bounty rewards is one of the few profitable jobs outside of crime in the solar system – and Spike and Jet are just doing their work as they get mixed up with even more interesting people. Eventually we see that almost everyone has some sort of interesting history in this show. Follow the story of bounty hunter Spike (and his companions which turn out to be a black pilot, a female thief, a young hacker of questionable gender, and a tiny pooch) as they live in a world where a hyperspace accident has made Earth all but uninhabitable. Their spaceship is called Bebop and they are bounty hunters: thus Cowboy Bebop.

Episode one starts out with quite the adventure, as the bounty hunters are after a guy known for having stolen a large quantity of highly potent drugs – basically, space meth. Users would spray a small drop into their eyes and gain increased stamina, focus, concentration, and even rage, depending on the situation. It was called Red Eye. The syndicate that had synthesized it wanted it back from this guy who stole it, and so Spike Spiegel and his partner jet hunt them down to retrieve it. But the thief’s girlfriend eventually sees that he has completely given into the substance, and so she kills him and takes off through space. It appears she dies as a result of her ship being fired upon.

As a result of a lot of unfortunate bad luck, they don’t collect many bounties. When they do collect bounties, they often have to go towards ship repairs after accidentally getting sucked into firefights, or the cost of death benefits of people who are killed during their ventures. The series was first streamed back in 1998 on TV Tokyo.

Cowboy Bebop was directed by acclaimed director Shinichiro Watanabe at Studio Sunrise. The series has been broadcast on network television in the US, UK, Australia, Canada, and and South Asia.
