These 3 Shows Are Absolutely Crazy!

crazy

The entertainment world is filled with crazy shows (Hey I do not mind; I am always on the lookout for shows that differ from the norm).

There are times when I wonder, do these writers, producers and directors go out of their way to shock the living daylights of their viewing audience?

The answer to that question might be an astounding, “Yes!”

So, without further ado, it is time for me to share my crazy findings with you.

1.) Cowboy Bebop

Cowboy Bebop is an American science-fiction/space western television series; it is based on a cool-looking Japanese anime series of the same name.

In a nutshell, Cowboy Bebop is about the adventures of a crew of bounty hunters (They are paid to hunt down the galaxy’s most dangerous criminals).

This entertaining show was developed by Christopher Yost.

Here is a list of some of the cast members of Cowboy Bebop and their respective roles:

  • Alex Hassell acts as Vicious; he is Spike’s archenemy and a member of the Red Dragon Crime Syndicate.
  • Daniella Pineda acts as Faye Valentine; she is a bounty hunter — the woman who lost her memories after she was revived from cryosleep.
  • Elena Satine acts as Julia; she is deeply admired by both Vicious and Spike.
  • John Cho acts as Spike Spiegel (also known as, “Fearless”); he is a bounty hunter from Mars — a man with a violent history of gang activity.
  • Mustafa Shakir acts as Jet Black; he is Spike’s partner, a former ISSP detective and the Captain of the Bebop.

Cowboy Bebop debuted on Netflix on Friday the 19th of November, 2021.

In spite of Cowboy Bebop being cancelled after its first season, it is available for streaming on Netflix.

2.) Raised by Wolves

Inventing Anna was created by Shonda Rhimes.

The producers for this very entertaining show are Jessica Pressler, Jess Brownell and Holden Chang.

Inventing Anna is about Anna Delvey conning New York’s elite into believing that she is a rich German Heiress (As a result, she runs up a huge debt, steals from friends and ends up in jail).

    1. A little corny? Boy, you have no idea. What made us cry in the anime just bored us to tears in Netflix’ totally misjudged attempt. 😐

        1. I have no idea about the manga, only about the anime shows. And there CB is still a legend. And the Netflix version wasn’t good. It wasn’t unfixable shit tho, so we’re a bit disappointed about Netflix giving up so quickly. All they needed to do was firing the writers. The basis was a bit wobbly but now the future is wide open for a loooong series of quirky little crime and bountyhunting stories. Could’ve become a funny little series with lots of action and meditations about how to be an adult and to carry the weight.

  1. Saw …”Wolves…” Really liked it. Saw only the trailers to …”Be Bop…” looked interesting, so I put it on my list. Since … “Anna…” has some sci/fi elements, I’ll probably check it out.

    1. Don’t! If you don’t wanna tarnish the good impression the original anime left with you, just don’t. Netflix phuxxed it, like totally. 😮

  2. Oooh, all three of these shows sound interesting. I keep hearing great things about Cowboy Bebop, in particular–so maybe it’s about time to sit down and start watching it. Hehe. Thank you!

  3. We’re big ol’ fans of Cowboy Bebop since, like, forever. And our scepticism was high when we heard about a live action remake of the show. And in that regard we’ve not been disappointed: Netflix did many things right but fell totally flat – as we feared – on the storytelling structure. The most important thing they got completely wrong! Giving Vicious/Julia so much screentime and their own story arc was about the worst one could do to CB’s proven concept. The show was stale and flat, no fun and boring. Not an enjoyable watch. 😦

    No wonder then that the viewership sank so low they had to cancel after only one measly season. Netflix had a huge chance here and put serious money into the production. Why o why do they have no problems finding good computers and CGI studios but not able to hire good screenwriters?

    1. 🙂 I am okay with you disagreeing.

      According to the story of “Raised by Wolves”, the Atheist and the Mithraic (the religious sect) started a war with each other; which resulted in the destruction of Earth.

      Now, in spite of some of the Mithraic members and the Atheist members making their way to Kelper-22b, they continue carrying out the same actions that caused the destruction of Earth.

      What I have learned over the years, is that people can live in harmony with their differences (Once that has been achieved, no war is necessary).

      1. Interesting. The Synopsis I had read (which I thought was the producers’) was that the religious sects went out of their way to hunt down and kill all atheists. The Atheists had to retreat offworld and were eventually even chased to Kelper-22b, which is where our story sort of begins.

        If it’s as balanced as you say, I’ll definitely have to look it over.

  4. I have only heard of the last one, and only about 2 days ago! I like the sound of all three so think they need to be added to my watch list. Especially the first one! Pity it was cancelled, but these days there are so many series, I actually enjoy watching ones that are either cancelled or limited otherwise I’d be in front of the TV all day trying to catch up lol

  5. Of the three, l have Inventing Anna on the horizon. I am currently watching the second season of The Witcher. But also l am in the throes of watching several series on normal cable programmes as well. Good write up.
