The Expanse

Recommended Posts

Anyone else watching The Expanse?  I binged season 1 in about 3 days and season 2 is off to a fantastic start.  Possibly the best sci-fi show since BSG...

Same here.

I didn't really like the last book though (or the book with the poison slugs), so that made go a bit "whatever, it's already ruined, might as well watch the show and relive the best books" :P

I'm starved for good space operas, so obviously I enjoyed the first season and second seems even better. Btw, did anyone notice that dialog tracks for S01 were mixed super horribly?

If you can make it through season 1, I think you'll like season 2.

Season 1 is a bit slow, but I still found it enjoyable and season 2 has been amazing so far.  Scifi channel officially picked it up for a 3rd season today.

Some crazy bastard should try and take on The Quantum Thief next.

That could be amazing.

The first season was pretty great. 

I didn't love the first.  They certainly hit their stride this one, though.

I really liked that the technology was pretty relatable to today without some quantum leap in how items were engineered.

Unfortunately the deal isn't done, though I hope it does go thru. Hollywood reporter's title doesn't match their first line of the article "Amazon Studios is in talks to revive one of CEO Jeff Bezos' favorite properties." lol

Amazon does have the streaming rights to the existing seasons, seems pretty likely this will happen.  Fingers crossed.

Just read that a couple of the side benefits of Amazon's taking on season 4 is;

No set episode length- something I love about the more "craft conscious" shows like Fargo.

More nudity!

And probably higher budget as well.  It's not like Bezos cares about prime video being profitable.
