"Life comes at you fast, just like a raging current! I don't fight it! Going against the flow? Just means you're swimming in place. One day you're too tired to paddle, and suddenly you drown! Whole thing was pointless and now you're dead, THE END! Now, going with the flow is where it's at. And that's...the dandy way to live."
Welcome to the fourth official talkback for the world premiere of Space Dandy, only on Toonami on Adult Swim at 11:30 PM EST. This week's all-new episode is Sometimes You Can't Live With Dying, Baby! Previously, on Space Dandy: a Hawaiian mecha and year old food saved the day.
This week, on Space Dandy: Zombies. Zombies......IN SPACE! And it's all Meow's fault.
See? Told ya.An alien turns Meow into a zombie.
The Characters of Space Dandy
Space Dandy is a dandy guy...in space! He operates on the scale of the universe and prides himself on "going with the flow", never worrying about the small details - then again, there isn't much he takes seriously. As a professional "alien hunter" Dandy tries to make a living traveling the universe, discovering new alien life for money. He actually succeeded in the third episode. Wait a minute: a free roaming space crew in an anime NOT being broke? What madness is this?!
One day, Dandy walked into a secondhand robot shop looking for a competent droid companion like R2-D2. What he walked out with was QT, a "glorified broom bot" and yet quite possibly the only crew member of the Aloha Oe with any common sense. Alas, between his outdated tech and Dandy's carefree lifestyle, QT seems fated to not be listened to or taken seriously. Will QT's day of triumph ever come? Hang in there, ya bucket of bolts!
A native of the planet Betelgeuse (and most definitely not a space cat), Meow has become Dandy's companion on his spacefaring adventures. If by "companion" we mean "lame pervert who got himself eaten by a space monster last episode", that is. Is someone like this really reliable? Oh well.
By day Scarlet is an inspector at the space alien registration center Dandy works for, acknowledging the discovery of new life...or crushing the dreams hapless fools who bring in common species. When she lets her hair down and really cuts loose, she's as lethal as Dandy is well-dressed!
When Dandy wants to unwind, he takes the time to visit a certain "establishment" director Shinichiro Watanabe describes as "Hooters in space". Honey is one of many beautiful waitresses working there. So far though, to her Dandy's just another customer.
A servant of the Gogol Empire, Professor Gel is quite possibly the space gorilla with the weirdest hair and the most inappropriate spaceship in the universe. With his minion Bea at his side, Gel chases Dandy across the universe, convinced he is a dangerous adversary. Despite possessing high intelligence and a fleet at his command though, he finds ways to fail spectacularly. It's apparently not easy being an evil genius.
The ruler of the mighty Gogol Empire, which is currently battling the Jaicro Empire in an epic war for control of the entire universe. His severe intolerance of failure suggests that he's kind of a bad guy - oh, and the whole giant flaming skull thing. For what reason does he order the pursuit of Space Dandy?
I would suggest that it's not the medium, but the quality of perception and expression, that determines the significance of art. But what would a cartoonist know? -Bill Watterson

Last week: Hot babe turns out to be multi-boobed monster. That sucks. Whoa, bad choice of words there.
This week: I turned in-to a zombie! Whoa-oa... wait, what am I doing?!
With just a touch of my burning hand
I send my Astro Zombies to rape this land
Prime directive, exterminate
The whole human race
And your face drops in a pile of flesh
And then your heart, heart pounds
Till it pumps in death
Prime directive, exterminate
Whatever stands left
All I wanted to say
And all I gotta do
Who'd I do this for
Hey, me or you?
That's more like it.
Oh, hai, Adult Swim.

He is the MOST INTERESTING MAN in the UNIVERSE.
"Stay DANDY, my Friends."
Well the Dandy man, oh the Dandy man can.

Previously on Space Dandy: Man-eating boob alien. Still kinda bored.
Ooh, we finally got the opening!
I'm guessing they're saving the intro for the DVD release.
Looks like Meow's okay.
Don't stick your hand in the cage!
Sheesh, the poor guy's dead on his feet.
