    "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 seventh official talkback for the world premiere of Space Dandy, only on Toonami on Adult Swim at 11:30 PM EST. Last time, well, a race of aliens committed genocide against itself over a disagreement about underwear. Funny, right?

    ......also, there was space surfing. Rule of Cool, baby.

    On a less awkward and happier note, tonight we have something lighter in store: racing. Racing......IN SPACE. Just in case that wasn't obvious.

    Here he comes
    Here comes Speed Dandy!
    He wants babes, he does!
    He wants babes so he's gonna be chasin' after someone!

    Speed Dandy's gonna pass you so you better look alive
    He's revving up a mecha with a Hawaii motif, no lie!

    And when the odds are against him
    And there's dangerous feats to do
    Dandy won't sweat the details
    And he'll somehow see it through!

    Go Speed Dandy
    Go Speed Dandy
    Go Speed Dandy, Go!

    He's off and flyin' causing explosions all around the track!
    If we're lucky this episode will be just like Redline coming back!
    Space racing is coming just ahead!

    Go Speed Dandy
    Go Speed Dandy
    GO SPEED DANDY, GO!

    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 - details like how it's possible to survive in outer space with nothing but a surfboard after a planet explodes. Yeaaaahhh. That was pretty cool though.

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 Alas, between his outdated tech and Dandy's carefree lifestyle, QT seems fated to not be listened to or taken seriously.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

    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 "moron who picked a fight over underwear for no good reason", 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 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
    [​IMG]

    She works at "Hooters in Space." That's it so far. Meh. Meh! And thrice I say this week, MEH!

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

    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 - not that this has much of anything to do with Dandy's escapades. For what reason does he order the pursuit of Space Dandy?

    He once made a WEEPING ANGEL LAUGH.

    He is so ATTRACTIVE to WOMEN, he has his OWN GRAVITATIONAL FIELD.

    He can speak KLINGON...in FERENGI.

    He is the MOST INTERESTING MAN in the UNIVERSE.

    Still no op yet I see.

    If you can call a robot and a perverted space cat a crew, I guess it works.

    And they run right past him.

    Women can't resist Leiji Matsumoto types. Maybe my second thing was a little off.

    Joke I never used last week: "Hey! The SHOOBIE'S at BOOBIES!"

    A racer named Prince. Does he drive a Little Red Corvette?

    Meow remembers Dandy as a surfer? There IS continuity?!

    And try not to pick up any stray Ctarl-Ctarl you find along the way.

    So how soon till Captain Falcon shows up?

    Did Mickey Mouse just come out of Prince's jacket?

    Ah, so these guys are like the Anti-Dandy crew.
