Cowboy Bebop: Netflix

I know there’s a split response among fans on how this Netflix adaption came out. I didn’t mind the Live Action Faye Valentine? If there’s a second season as show runners are saying they are planning for one. There’s only ten episodes versus the twenty something of the actual anime. Hopefully they will listen to the criticism to an extent! I think if you go in this with low expectations or that it’s going to be different then… yeah.

I knew this was going to be different, and some things wouldn’t be translated to the show due to time constraints or budget constraints (Cowboy Andy! But do we really need to see that guy?) I think people forget they were filming this during pandemic time too and that probably botched some things. John Cho also got injured and that pushed filming back until they finished in March of this year.

 

I didn’t mind Faye’s outfit either since it’s more like what a normal human being would wear. Yeah, a woman could pick a crop top still but maybe she doesn’t feel like wearing the crop top that is two inches in length! Also, I could cosplay this version too since the only alarming color is still her top part. I did cosplay Faye Valentine a whopping ten years ago at SDCC in 2011! Wow, how time flies!!!

We needed more Ein. Always more Corgi butt!

Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings

 

I knew of Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings before they announced it was going to be Simu Liu as the lead role. He was announced at San Diego Comic Con 2019 and it’s crazy to think it was that long ago!

I’m glad the movie is doing well at the box office. Absolutely amazing and there were a lot of times I’ve related to Awkwafina’s character, Katy. Ha. There needs to be sequels and that we could see the growth of Shang Chi as a character much like the other Marvel Superheroes!!!

Loki Series – Finale

 

I remembered the original pitch for Loki was something much different than what we got for the series. I remembered Kevin Feige saying that we would see Loki jumping through various historical times and messing with the events. So, it wasn’t like I read a fan blog! I think they had to change it because The Eternals is going to be that but “serious business” plot instead.

I’ve seen a split reaction to the series. Personally, I like to keep an open mind on these shows. I watched Agents of SHIELD and I can appreciate these shows are relevant to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It was always weird when the TV shows can’t mention anything or they weren’t relevant to the movies. The budget in the show would be drastically on the low end and that was awkward. I appreciate these had nearly or the same budget as the movies did!

I have watched that old NBC show Powerless that was about the cleanup crew after the DC heroes destroyed a city while trying to save the world. I think that type of show would have to be within the universe and able to have the same budget to work nowadays. It is fun to see how the landscape of TV has changed over the years concerning superheroes.
