3, 2, 1, Let’s Jam!
Shucks Howdy! It’s time to polish up your shootin’ irons cowboy, because these bounties ain’t gonna catch themselves! It’s time for the 2021 adaptation of the much loved Cowboy Bebop! We’ll pay a hefty fifteen million woolongs to anyone who can give us the precise location of where in New Zealand this all-new take on the classic anime series was shot. And Peta will double it if John Cho is still there!
This week Jill, Quinny and the aforementioned Peta are saddling up the Bebop and flying into the dangerous territory of Live-action remakes! Dare you join them?
See you, Space Cowboy.
Also for those watching the Youtube version, check below for the links to clips that had to be removed for copyright issues.
A thank you to all you badass cowboys and criminals who join in on the Twitch stream, each Tuesday night at 7:30pm AEDT (and sometimes on Fridays too!) And a special thank you to those Syndicate Members who have supported us (who knew they would be our first sponsors?) Thanks for supporting us directly via our Ko-Fi jar and now also by subscribing to our very own “Big Shots” bounty roundup on Twitch!
If you like what we do, drop us a sub! Every bit of your support helps us to (hopefully) keep entertaining you!
Don’t fret if you can’t be there for the recording though as you can catch them on Youtube usually within a day of recording. Make sure to subscribe there so you don’t miss them!
And finally the link to Peta’s documentary Puff: Wonders of the Reef!
The unassailable challenge of adapting Animation to Live Action remains unassailed.
We love Anime. We love Cowboy Bebop. We love people trying new stuff! We applaud having a go at doing a quasi-film-noir space-opera cyberpunk bounty-hunter adventure show filmed in New Zealand. Does it work? Hmmmm

It feels almost spot-on for the vibe of the anime, It felt like coming home.
The casting of the three leads is beyond perfect; Jet being a highlight.
Its score and musical styling is a delight from minute to minute.
It feels oddly small at times, like they didn't have the studio space required for the scope.
sometimes the characters feel a bit like cosplay versions of themselves. Looking at you Vicious.
It sometimes just feels a bit "Naff". and thats really disappointing.
