I remember watching this on Cartoon Network’s Toonami action block I think when I was about 10 or 11. Watching it now I’m surprised at all the stuff that was cut from the show back then. Even saw Sage Bennett review this as a middle ground future, not too dark like in Alien, but not too bright like Star Trek. That’s what the future will probably be now and then, something in the middle.
The story is about Jean Starwind and his partner Jim Hawking as they go on this adventure after helping someone. Even meet some new crewmembers as well. The plot is kind of like that of Joss Weadon’s Firefly and that show was like the Wild West in Space. Firefly was also on FOX so long ago and sadly got canceled probably because of a bad air date or that the show needed extra help. Looking at FOX now it could have saved the channel from all the bad sitcoms and unethical reality tv they have now.
Anyway, this show is pretty good and it isn’t exactly like Cowboy Bebop, then again Cowboy Bebop kinda spoiled us a bit after it aired. It’s also amazing how adult it is now that is uncut and on Funimation Now.
