I didn't see anything about this but I binge watched it while I was recovering from surgery. It's been pretty good and reminds me a lot of what Sci Fi used to be with shows like Farscape. It seems the Canadians are taking the lead on new Scifi shows. Also a fan of Dark Matter.

I like both as well. The Expanse's visuals are wonderful. 2nd season is meh on the story, but I'm reading the 2nd book now & figured out what is going on a little better than the show has done so far.
I'm really wishing the books were on kindle unlimited - 10$ a pop, but I'm too impatient to stop now.

Yeah, me too. Binged the 1st season last week when I was down with the flu. Catching up on the 2nd season now. It was on my list for awhile. Wish I hadn't put it off so long. It definitely has all the things I like in a SyFy show. I think I like Dark Matter more, though. There is also something about the actor that plays Holden that I don't like. They did a good job with casting otherwise. Lots of familiar faces.

I've been enjoying the show as well. I hope Thomas Jane isn't gone entirely. Miller was the coolest character.

I like both the expanse and dark matter. I will have to wait until the season is over and watch them on streaming channels.

If you haven't seen it, watch "Ascension". It's pretty good.

My wife and I love this show. we won't be able to watch it this week, and the wife set the DVR to super secret never delete code so my kids don't delete it while we are away


I have a strange affinity for Amos.....definitely a connection. Maybe that makes me weird, but I kind of view him as there but for the grace of of God go I

Plus I'm a browncoat and I loved Jayne...I think Jayne and Amos would enjoy telling some war stories over several mugs of muddsr's milk

Well one of the fun parts of the books is how he haunts Holden. So I hope they keep it. Would be fun in the show.
The only real problem I had was my love affair with the Roci. I do not like the one in the show and had constructed it completely differently in my mind.
Also, Bobby is not how I imagined her either. I guess I can't have everythingSmile
I love the show and loved the books so I am definitely having fun.

I really feel like they got his character right. He was also one of my favorites and they are doing a good job with him.

Yeah, not so much in the first season for me, but definitely in the 2nd season.

I wonder when, or if, Gunney Draper will fully remember what she saw on Ganymede.

Dare I say this series harkens back to Babylon 5 with a good characters leading an interesting story that's interspersed with tremendous space battles? I'm trying to hold myself to watching only two or three episodes per night. Almost done with Season 1 and looking forward to watching Season 2.
