Netflix’s Cowboy Bebop is what you would get if you took a daytime soap opera, put everyone in Halloween costumes from the anime, had Jerry Bruckheimer produce and the dialogue written by the screenwriters of Venom and Thor: Ragnarok. Actually the last part is true. Yeah I wasn’t feeling it.

I wouldn't mind The Foundation being a bit more soap-operish. Not as soap-operish as Apple's Invasion I'm currently watching, it's not that easy to find a healthy balance it seems.

Alfonso Cuarón is directing a show for Apple TV that stars Cate Blanchett and Gary Oldman. More details to be revealed by Apple later on.
Indiewire reports that the show is called Disclaimer, stars Blanchett as a "television documentary journalist." Oldman seems to have gotten replaced by Kevin Kline but otherwise all the preexisting info about the show is correct, including that both Emmanuel Lubezki and Bruno Delbonnel are shooting it.

I love the cast and filmmakers but is there anything we need less these days than another media product about TV news?

I've been on the fence about hate watching this alongside Dear Evan Hanson, but I think I might just actively avoid it and stick with the entertaining YouTube videos about what an incredible misfire it is.

I was stunned to learn that Karl Taro Greenfeld wrote an episode of it. I was reading his phenomenal book about mid-90's urban Japan, Speed Tribes, when I first saw the anime in 2001.
