I started this because it got a fair number of recommendations on the Cowboy Bebop page. But the first two episodes had a very different vibe. Bebop was the ultimate cool, but this is about a rather dorky everyman who hooks up with a bunch of rather generic smugglers. I'm not saying it's terrible, it's actually perfectly watchable, but it's just kind of bland. I feel like the characters and the writing are from a thousand other shows.
