Netflix's 'Cowboy Bebop' - The Reviews Are In!

Cowboy Bebop is getting a lot of attention right now!

The Netflix series is currently hovering at the top of the Top 10 in the U.S. on the streamer following its November 19 premiere.

The show is a live-action remake of the beloved anime series.

In Cowboy Bebop, three bounty hunters, aka “cowboys,” all trying to outrun the past. As different as they are deadly, Spike Spiegel (John Cho), Jet Black (Mustafa Shakir), and Faye Valentine (Daniella Pineda) form a scrappy, snarky crew ready to hunt down the solar system’s most dangerous criminals — for the right price. But they can only kick and quip their way out of so many scuffles before their pasts finally catch up with them.
