"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 twelfth official talkback for the world premiere of Space Dandy, only on Toonami on Adult Swim at 11:30 PM EST. We're near the conclusion of the first season, but that won't be the end - Dandy will be back this July for more. For now, we've got this episode, which had a really weird preview at the end of last week. Moreso than usual, I mean. 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. 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 Alas, between his outdated tech and Dandy's carefree lifestyle, QT seems fated to not be listened to or taken seriously.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. Honey She works at "Hooters in Space" and...well, that's still it. 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. Now that he's been sucked into a black hole, is there any way he could possibly do worse?! Only time will tell. 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?
