Yeah the books do her story justice because they can be inside her head. I still liked the episode but having read the books really helps.

I guess that's true of the whole series.

Great "side by side" video of the scene in the book and the last episode of Naomi

I really liked the whole plotline of Naomi on Marco's ship, but I'm curious to know if in the books it would have been more uninterrupted? Going between Naomi's storyline and the other simultaneous storylines, the others all were more dramatic. That kinda deflated the tension of the Naomi/Marco/Phillip drama.

It kinda plays out like it does in the show. Books are structured very much like Game of Thrones, which isn't surprising the authors used to work as assistant writers under George RR Martin. Each chapter has a point of view character and you see whats going on with that character.

Speaking of Naomi, geez she was in rough shape after her time on the float. I thought producers woulda just had her wake up and just gasp a bit, but she looks like she got beat up in the alley behind a dive bar.

I actually struggled with that last episode, I think I was maybe too tired and didn't really get what was going on (especially Naomi's part even though I've read the books). Think I need to re-watch.

I really enjoyed the ending of this weeks episode. I kinda liked that they showed just how desperate and analytical Naomi is. She just get getting beat and then she would try again. I found it tough to figure out what the message was saying until watching and listening during the closer credits as the message was on loop it got louder and louder and much more clear. I thought it was fantastic!

That one was quite visceral.

Peaches and Amos watering the lawn.

Naomi puking and bawling.

Having Amos on Earth for a whole season is a mistake.

Found it a bit slow. I see what they were going for, but it didn't quite work for me. Oh well, next episode plz!

Idk about this season. It was my favourite book but it just doesn’t seem to be grabbing me the same as previous seasons. Feels like Amazon sucking the soul out of it IMO.

I really liked the last episode.

Except for Amos's story. That interaction with the one handed guys was so awkward and hamfisted, I was like, WTF is going on here.

man Naomi just redefined what it means to have a bad day. if I was in as much physical and emotional distress as her, I would have just been like, pashang this and set off the explosives to be done with it.

I have no bookreading plans so not that concerned about which format did what better, but the relatively small scale of Marco's attack and subsequent declaration of owning everything beyond Earth's atmosphere makes him sort of pretty dumb. it would be like if after 9/11, Bin Laden broadcast a message saying that the Middle East is now fully in control, and America will face destruction if it tries to do anything beyond its own borders.

they're debating how much of a response to enact, but if it really came down to it, the UN and whatever part of Mars that hasn't switched sides would be more than enough to wipe the Belt clean from the solar system several times over.

At least Amos and Peaches didn't cross streams.

Is that the first time a woman ever did that on TV or Screen? I can't think of another example (outside of internet erotic cinema).

Such an unnecessary scene. Amazon going for the shock value I see.
