Bee and Puppycat: Lazy in Space (Netflix)
September 7, 2022 9:33 AM - Subscribe

Bee and PuppyCat is an American animated streaming television series created and written by Natasha Allegri. The series revolves around Bee (voiced by Allyn Rachel), an unemployed woman in her early twenties, who encounters a mysterious creature named PuppyCat (voiced by the Vocaloid program Oliver). She adopts this apparent cat-dog hybrid, and together they go on a series of temporary jobs to pay off her monthly rent.

From Wikipedia:
The series originated with a web pilot in 2013, followed by a Kickstarter supported first season which was released from 2014–16.

The Netflix version, consisting of a three-episode remake of the first season and Lazy in Space, premiered on September 6, 2022.

I've only seen the first three episodes so far and have mixed (mostly good) feelings. While I enjoyed them and found the story more coherent, I miss a lot of the original dialog bits like "You took too long, now your candy's gone!" and well, basically everything on JellyQ (?) Planet.

Interesting though how they compressed the original series (which was only an hour, to be fair) into the first three episodes and accelerated/expanded on the plot. I'm impressed but I just bristle at change, I suppose. Obviously I'm going to keep watching but need to parcel the episodes out so they last...

Curious to hear what everybody else thinks--both those who watched the originals and newbies!

Aaaah things get much better after the first three episodes! The word is (from someone on Reddit), that the _real_ Lazy In Space series is episodes 4-16! They were what were made as followups from the series on Youtube. The first three episodes were made as a recap of the Youtube series at Netflix's request (perhaps, demand), so the series could be generally self-contained on their network.

That is what I have heard. It seems to fit the available evidence fairly well at least.

I am working on doing a post per episode, but various things have filled up my time the past few weeks so it's been slow. I've not given up yet though!
