Acclaimed Flop: Bones and Toonami had high hopes for the series in the Western market, to the point it premiered on Adult Swim the day before it aired in Japan. Sadly, it didn't meet those expectations. Most critics and fans love it, but it's never obtained the popularity of Cowboy Bebop or even Samurai Champloo. Here's a whole article speculating why it wasn't a bigger hit.
Playing Against Type: None of the actors so far, but Shinichiro Watanabe himself. His previous works are more seriously-toned and, with the exception of Kids on the Slope, mostly stay within the action genre (though granted, Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo, two of his most famous works, do have their comedic moments). Space Dandy is more of a wacky action-comedy, throwing the serious tone completely out the window.
Episode 10, which focuses heavily on a mobius loop and the number 8, aired on March 8th, and at the end of the episode, it was time for the east coast of the US to lose an hour due to Daylight Savings Time.
