I can't believe it but we are actually gonna get a live action show. Not sure how I feel about it but I guess in the long run anime adaptations aren't a bad thing.

I'd give a Live-action TV series of Cowboy Bebop a shot.

I've gotta say, though, I've thought about this and I'm uncertain of what I'd like in a live-action adaptation. A recreation of the style a setting? Some pleasant little one-shot episodes? Well choreographed space-western action sequences? Or watching this set of characters interacting with and riffing off of one another?

One thing though is that I'd like for it to do is offer fresh and reasonable conflicts for these characters to face, and force them out of their comfort zones. For all that the original series does (which I guess is what we'll have to call if it this live action series does go through), I don't remember it really pushing any of the central cast too far from their collective comfort - and as their everyday struggles to get food and work were usually played as comedy for comic relief (and for reason, as it is a cartoon) I'd feel more than a little odd watching real people in their situation (in their own ship in space) shrug off not having their own food more than once or twice without it turning into some sort of crisis.

Come to think of it, I lasted watched this series seven years ago, and apart from some key story beats I don't recall a lot about the thematic dimensions in the series. Is this something that anyone else has felt as well?

I'd like a good script based on what made Cowboy Bebop great that doesn't turn into a simple live action copy paste and this:

Western live-action anime adaptations have NEVER turned out well, neither critically nor financially. What I expect from the show is far different from what I want in the show.

Got my head outta the gutter this morning to watch Jupiter Jazz Part 2. Powerful material from the history between Gren and Vicious down to the beautiful, dulcet tones of the ending song "Space Lion". Gonna be stuck with that melody in my head all the time now that I got it on my iPod as soon as I got done with the episode.
And so Javert, you see it's true. This man bears no more guilt than you! Who am I? TWO-FOUR-SIX-OH-OOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!! - Jean Valjean (Les Miserables)
