The Expanse on syfy

Does anyone else on MCB watch "The Expanse" on Syfy channel? This might be my favorite show since "Game of thrones". Its like "Battle star galactica" meets "Firefly". If you guys are looking for a new show to get into I highly recommend giving "The Expanse" a watch.

Its fantastic.
They make a real effort to be realistic. Inasmuch as thats possible in a sci-fi show about space travel, and the alien virus, without being boring (ie most of star trek).

The only question is if SYFY wants to pay for it. They clearly did not want to pay for Dark Matter, which had similar ratings.

I LOVED the first season. LOVED it. I thought season two was...fine. Read the first book, which spans seasons 1 and 2, but season 2 also gets into some of the book 2 characters, so it's not a 1:1 thing.

But season 1 was one of my favorite seasons of tv ever.

Amazon Prime has d Season 1 for free.... you have to pay for the second season (or did as of a month or so ago). I binge watched season 1.

I'm up to book 4. Still good stuff.

It takes the concept of science fiction and tries to stay as true to physics as possible. Iím glad the show does the same.

Kind of makes Star Wars harder to watch sadly

Double FYI for paintball rules there should be no "offer" of surrender, its either mandatory surrender at X distance when guy is behind you or no surrender and you get shot in the booty. "offer" of surrender makes for some ridiculous and dangerous john woo tactics.

My sister has been bugging me to download it illegally.

I can't tell if I hate the actor or the character of the detective with the dumb hair cut.
And the old lady with the throat cancer is a non-canon character.

That's Thomas Jane, he's not a bad actor. I actually think he's doing a good job. You aren't supposed to love him.

Which lady with throat cancer? This one?
Shohreh Aghdashloo - IMDb

Her character is in the books.
