I know that Netflix's decision to make a live action version of this show is controversial among fans of the classic anime, but I'm nonetheless excited about it, mainly because it's introducing a bunch of original big band jazz to the general public.

They managed to bring on Yoko Kanno, the original series's composer, along with The Seatbelts (including Masato Honda). Nonetheless, much of the music will be original; Kanno says that only about 10% of the music will be from the original series.

Very much agreed. Loved the original in my youth. The soundtrack is unparalleled for this kind of show.

Also, I just realized that John Cho (who's starring in the main role) is nearly 5 years older than I am. He aged well.

Koreans.
We don't wrinkle much at first.
Then we get to some point in our lives and the skin just starts to sag. Some tipping point somewhere.

I did picture Spike being younger, but I'll try not to prejudge.

I've been enjoying this show. I thought I'd have trouble with disassociating John Cho with his other roles but I think he's done great. Music has been stellar too!

I have been watching Cowboy Bebop the anime series when my son and daughter started watching Initial-D, so probably 2002. We bought the as much as we can in forms of DVD and books when the local Hasting's Bookstore had a firesale when they were closing shop. My son did get into jazz and acid jazz I think from it but my daughter sadly not. The music has always been fantastic. There is just better fidelity on the Netflix series. The show ran for 2 years but there are other manga chapters that did not make it to anime.

Episode 5 starts with some classic Charlie Parker and even has dialogue about it. Love it
