  • The Expanse

    So far it's been the best scifi that SyFy has done in awhile.

    Good to see another poster interested in this series.

    I am also impressed as well.

    If I should dare to say this, I think it's a poor man's version of Game of Thrones and Firefly all rolled up into one big show with few subplots going into different directions but tied to the overarching story line.

      They are not spending a lot of time on the science of living in space but they aren't ignoring it either. Characters only talk about it when the story takes them to a place where such conversation would be expected.

        It is nice to see a SCIENCE fiction show on tv.

        I am enjoying it.

          Looks like SyFy is keeping the past episodes available on their site for the time being.

              That was way too short a season!

                Yes, it was, and it makes me think the network wasn't sure how it would be received.

                Hopefully, they will continue this series.

                  I heard it was going to be renewed. Looks like they are following the same ten episode format as Vikings as a couple of other cable shows.

                    I'm only about four eps in, but I'm enjoying it a great deal. It was a \little slow getting started, but I'm enjoying it a great deal. Its good to see sci-fi with some depth. Too much sci-fi has a WW2-esque good guys/bad guys political non-scenario. This show feels real-you're not sure who is doing what to who.
                    Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

                      I expect that we are going to see shorter series in order to keep up quality while keeping budget within bounds.

                      I have noticed "commercial creep", however. The average show is now barely 40 minutes long in many cases.

                        The last two episodes are simply outstanding!

                        Toward the end of last episode, I caught myself saying, what did just happened? Wow.
