Cowboy Bebop 1x01 Cowboy Gospel

I think analyzing adaptations based on the original characters is dumb. Still the leads of Cowboy Bebop (2021) convey nothing, maybe the only one closely to do it is Spike (John Cho), but nor the story, nor the side characters do convey anything. Sometimes this first chapter gets into Death Note live-action territory, one can't help but laugh out loud at the ridiculous portraying.

Still, I think that first scene is good, and has its own sense of camp, without trying to be too serious, but when it does try to get there, just all the elements aren't really well structured to move the viewer. Maybe it's just that it feels too calculated to feel anything, the dialogues, the movement of the characters, the plot. The most I found interesting is the "tokusatsu" vibes, maybe it's that campyness...

The series should've really gotten farer from the original series, do your own thing, not present a replica of the original opening, go thru all these cold movements and still have the audacity to close with a "See you space cowboy".
