    C&C - Space Dandy - "The Lonely Pooch Planet, Baby!" [2/22]

    Like This Thread!



    "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 eighth official talkback for the world premiere of Space Dandy, only on Toonami on Adult Swim at 11:30 PM EST. If you haven't heard, tonight will be the first time the original Japanese opening and closing will be broadcast!

    As for tonight's episode, well, it's apparently all about man's best friend.....

    ......IN SPACE.

    Nah, that's not getting old yet. Impossible I say, impossible!

    Dandy finds a dog on a deserted planet and Meow is jealous, but the dog is carrying alien stowaways.



    The Characters of Space Dandy


    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. Which is probably a useful skill for after the ending of episode 7, where ended up the last living guy in the universe. Whoa.

    As a professional "alien hunter" Dandy tries to make a living traveling the universe, discovering new alien life for money. Or screwing it up and dying or going broke. Good thing this show laughs in the face of continuity, huh?

    QT


    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 Alas, between his outdated tech and Dandy's carefree lifestyle, QT seems fated to not be listened to or taken seriously.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?

    Meow


    A native of the planet Betelgeuse (and most definitely not a space cat), Meow has become Dandy's companion on his spacefaring adventures - not that he's proven himself very useful at all!

    Scarlet


    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 of hapless fools who bring in common species. She's also a super competent fighter and hasn't really appeared in enough episodes. Drat.

    Honey


    She works at "Hooters in Space." She finally did something in episode 7. Progress?

    Professor Gel


    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. He's missed two straight episodes, by the way. Hey, quit slacking at sucking, you damn dirty ape!

    Commodore Perry


    The ruler of the mighty Gogol Empire, which is currently battling the Jaicro Empire in an epic war for control of the entire universe - not that this has much of anything to do with Dandy's escapades. For what reason does he order the pursuit of Space Dandy?

    According to DeMarco, tonight will be the night where Toonami FINALLY airs Dandy's original opening and closing! Let's hope all goes as planned.

    They've been promising that for the past several weeks. I'm taking that with a grain of salt.

    They said it was in the works before, whereas now they're saying it's a done deal. You can bet on it.

    I always thought the music for both the op and ed was pretty generic and meh so not having it never bothered me. It's still nice to have though.

    He has MORE RINGS than SATURN.

    TIME LORDS rely on him whenever their WATCHES STOP.

    He really ISN'T the DROID YOU'RE LOOKING FOR.

    He is the MOST INTERESTING MAN in the UNIVERSE.

    Previously on Space Dandy: A Space Race. And just like the one from the 60's, it was pretty much a big pissing contest.

    Cool. Looks like we're getting that opening after all.
