    "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 fifth official talkback for the world premiere of Space Dandy, only on Toonami on Adult Swim at 11:30 PM EST. Previously on Space Dandy, everybody learned to live with dying. It was kinda weird. Blame / credit George Romero. Uuuuuhhhh.....meat.....uuuuuhhhhhhh.

    This week, Space Dandy is a dandy guy...IN SPA-

    .....oh. Hm. And now for something completely different(?)!

    The Characters of Space Dandy


    Dandy

    [​IMG]

    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's done such a good job of it that he's only died twice in this series! Hey, it's better than four.

    QT
    [​IMG]

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 Alas, between his outdated tech and Dandy's carefree lifestyle, QT seems fated to not be listened to or taken seriously.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

    Meow
    [​IMG]

    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 "loser who got the entire universe turned into an unhead horde", that is. Is someone like this really reliable? Oh well.

    Scarlet
    [​IMG]

    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!

    Honey
    [​IMG]

    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. This character description is really boring, isn't it?

    Professor Gel
    [​IMG]

    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.

    Commodore Perry
    [​IMG]

    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?

    Speaking of which, Meow's bio should be updated. He was eaten two weeks ago. Well, maybe partially eaten last week.

    This week: Well it won't be the first time this show did drama. They had the ramen chef's past back in episode 2. But there was some black humor in his girlfriend's death. I'm expecting this episode to do something on those lines.

    Previously on Space Dandy: Obligatory zombie episode, 'cause that's the trendy fashion nowadays.

    He once beat the MILLENNIUM FALCON in a GAME of CHICKEN.

    He eats RED WEED for BREAKFAST.

    When VACATIONING on the SUN, he packs THERMAL UNDERWEAR.

    He is the MOST INTERESTING MAN in the UNIVERSE.

    She looks like one of the B-52's.

    Once again, the narrator's late.

    Aloha-Oe went aloha.

    A power that only lasts for 11 minutes and 6 seconds a day? That's pretty useless.

    NOW this is reminding me of a Shinichiro Watanabe series.

    That voice from the alien girl sounds familiar. If I din't know better, it sounds like Tabitha St. Germain.
