I wasn't a huge fan of the most recent book. None of the characters really feel like they really grew after a 30 year time jump, so it was hard to believe. I understand why they did it, but still...

Syfy will no longer be carrying this show, I really fucking hope someone else picks it up, it’s one of the best shows on tv IMO

Better than Star Trek in my opinion.

Really really low bar if you're talking about the new star trek

Knowing which direction that books go, I don't think the show would have the budget to show what happens in an acceptable way

^^ I meant Star Trek in general.

By the way, "disassembly reveals useful pathways".

^^ I think it was Jim Butcher who said he like writing novels because he has an unlimited special effects budget.

So got caught up tonight and watched episodes 5 and 6.

Holy shit did they do a ton of stuff in episode 6.

Watching all the space combat in this show has me doing math. I'm sure everyone will be interested to know that having a remote possibility of hitting a constant-acceleration target past 30 km with a ballistic projectile would require nothing short of magic.

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic

You don't need sufficiently advanced technology, just guided projectiles.

Also, with the apparent ability to sustain 1g acceleration for days if not weeks, they'd be to other stars by now.

Clearly they say they're under 1g for the sake of budget. In the books, it's usually much less. That's the reason why the Nauvo is a spinning cylinder for gravity

I’ve been watching this... the first season was pretty boring but the 2nd half of the 2md season is good.

The set design, special effects, and world building are phenomenal, reminds me a lot of cowboy bebop.

Oh i guess post above already said that. Anyway this is either a new trailer or the same one again. What am I, a fact checker?

she is supposed to be a quick, sharp indian woman, not someone who has to slowly chew out words

I think Avasarala is one of the standouts on the show. She's fantastic.

Note: I didn't read the book so have no clue if the casting matches the book.

Just finished the new season, loved it.

Amos was great this season, and loved that the big bad had a line about "must have that kind of face" since the actor 100% has that kind of face.

Not sure why the old OPA guy boarded inaros ship with just 3 people instead of just shooting it down. Also was inaros flinging a bunch of asteroids (more then the 2 they took) or are they also bringing attack ships to earth? That map of everything converging showed them lining up near earth but not impacting.

Reading the thread on reddit in /r/TheExpanse, it looks like this guy is going to be gone. Wonder if they recast him or kill him off.
