Now that I've (re)watched almost all Cowboy Bebop eps on DVD, I like to freeze-frame through the episodes, making screenshots of interesting scenes.
Here are some frames from ep 18 (the one where Spike and Jet search the solar system for a Betamax video player) that I pasted together to form one vertical panorama:
Yay, my Cowboy Bebop: Complete Sessions Collection arrived! With one purchase I now have all 26 episodes, spread over 6 DVDs. Danelope pointed out this Amazon.com offer a while ago, and reading a nice Cowboy Bebop post on Smirlogg made me finally decide to buy it. This is (very close to being) my favourite tv series ever, animated or otherwise.
I've seen all eps in Divx format before, but it's definitely worth watching them all again in high quality, for the amazing background art if anything. The discs are Region 1 but luckily I region-free-hacked both my dvd-player and dvd-drive.

Whoa... I'm watching Cowboy Bebop, episode 20 ('Pierrot le Fou'), and for a fraction of a second, I think I notice a Dutch street sign for the city of The Hague (aka Den Haag) scrolling in view during a cyberspace sequence. Rewind: yep, it's actually there. How cool is that?!
Also, sorta related: during a recent BBC documentary on the computer game industry, they showed a filler scene of a busy Japanese street where a girl walked by who just happened to wear what I'm sure was a t-shirt emblazoned with the logo of Van Vliet, a local waste disposal company. And I mean *really* local - a short walk from here! Coincidences, hmm...
Cowboy Bebop is amazing...
