Thanks for the post from Hal Potter

Cowboy Bebop is a futuristic western TV show in the science fiction genre. It’s one show that makes me thankful to have all these different channels on my–though the amount can sometimes be a pain to search through. Set in the year 2071, the series follows a group of cowboys on the ship Bebop. Although they are called “cowboys,” they are pretty much what we would term bounty hunters. The protagonist of the story is Spike Spiegel who is a former member of the Red Dragon Crime Syndicate. He is haunted by his past relationship in the syndicate. Particular his association with a woman named Julia and his former syndicate partner Vicious. The ship Spike now finds himself aboard, Bebop, is owned by Jet Black, a former ISSP officer.

At the start of the series, the two are after a bounty on an asteroid affectionately known as New Tijuana. Along the way, they join forces with a female bounty hunter named Faye Valentine, an eccentric young hacker Edward and a laboratory dog that was tested upon named Ein. Faye and Edward also have some skeletons in their closets. The awesomeness of the show is how it blends different styles together into its own counterculture. Another thing I loved about the show is that it incorporates jazz with beat music. Both the opening and ending themes are definitely worth tuning into.
