Season 1 Episode 5 – Ballad of Fallen Angels
Surprising pretty much no one, Crystal’s first pick is: AN ANIME! According to experts who were not present on the panel this week, she picked a “safe” one at that. That might have been the right choice for the people on the show tonight, with just Matt and Ant present, it all comes down to the both of them to decide if it is worth watching.
Knowing her audience, Crystal choose Cowboy Bebop for its great soundtrack, cool sci-fi setting, hyper-intelligent corgis, and old-school Japanese Mafia plot. How those things could fit together is beyond me, but it is in the hands of two people who don’t watch Anime, one of whom has openly said he hates it, to decide if it somehow works.
All episodes of Cowboy Bebop (dub and subtitles versions) are available to stream on Hulu.
