Star Helix! What you doing here? You lose a bet?

The space battle was really well done. I love how they vented the ship before going into combat.

How they managed to outpunch the stealth ship at close range really well done. Using the habitat ring as an obstacle.

Overall I thought it was a good kickoff to the season, maybe a bit slow for the first episode but it picked back up pretty fast.

Miller really redeemed himself... loved the "I'm going to take my pet nuke for a walk". Episode was intense right up till the last moments.

Episode 5 was one of the best episodes of a sci-fi TV show in the last decade or two. Simply incredible.

It really does, we need shows like this to be successes, otherwise we'll have another firefly on our hands where people discover it after the fact.

This is why I keep on posting in the thread. Every person I've recruited to watch has loved it after they watched a few episodes. Also been voting with my wallet and purchased the season from Google.

This week's episode wasn't as good as the last few but to be honest, it would be extremely tough to top last week's. I knew something crazy was going to happen on Ganymede and I was getting all pumped up to see those martian marines go to battle. Sad that it cut away. Hopefully we get to see a little more of what happened in the next episode.

I'm going to watch this as soon as I finish the book 'Leviathan Wakes'. Has pretty much everyone here who's in to the show read some or all of the books? I'm quite digging it so far. The trailer I watched for the show struck me as underwhelming for some reason but reception here seems to be quite positive overall.

I bought the first three books a while back but only just started reading them. I am about 100 pages into Leviathan Wakes and really enjoying it. I don't want to turn this into another Game of Thrones thread type thing so I'll keep book spoilers out of it. I've noticed that they've changed some things in the show but for the most part it's pretty bang on. They even pull lines right out of the book.

The original trailers were not very great but the show is really good. Every person I've told to watch it has gone on to binge the entire series.

They made a bit of a mistake in the start of the series putting the show out as a one hour premiere instead of the usual two hours for these type of shows. First episode is a lot of world building that might end up being a bit slow but second episode hits the ground running.

It's been renewed for a third season
Quote:
The Expanse has been renewed for Season 3. Say that to yourself and let the sci-fi space opera warmth flood your being. Let it become your mantra: The Expanse. Renewed. The Expanse. Renewed. Feels good doesn't it? Yeah we're pretty pumped!

And we're not the only ones. Critical acclaim has been stacking up for The Expanse ever since Season 1, but it's in Season 2 where things just got plain paramount. io9 called it the “best sci-fi show on TV”. Wired said Season 2 was “transforming TV”. The 13-episode third season will premiere on Syfy in 2018. while Season 2 is currently airing every Wednesday at 10/9c.

“The Expanse is a gorgeous, thrilling, emotional series that has quite simply raised the bar for science fiction on television,” said Chris McCumber, President, Entertainment Networks for NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. “We, along with the fans, are looking forward to continuing the journey with our partners at Alcon Television Group and the series’ brilliant cast and crew.”

Great news. Have not read any of the books, but I will pick the first book up after the season is over.

This is the show I look forward to more than any other, used to be Walking Dead, but Expanse has become my favourite.

Same as when i first watched Firefly, I try to spread the word to everyone I know.

Please watch this! Don't make it go away.

Thanks to everyone whom recommended the series. Binged watched both seasons, eagerly awaiting the next one. Now reading the books as I'm eager to see how the story progresses. Have spread the word to friends on this awesome series (tv and book).

The books are great, and the show lives up to them. I'm glad to hear we are getting more

I really like the show and how they at least try to deal with issues like gravity and momentum. Too bad the guy who plays Holden is such a crappy actor. The actress that plays Naomi isn't much better either. Everyone else is great though.
