I binged all three seasons in the last couple weeks. I think it would have been cooler to end the third season with the alien thing lifting off and turning into the ring, and then the fourth season beginning with slingshot guy smashing into the thing. Loved the Deep Purple they worked in. That was unexpected and awesome. One thing I thought was really awesome about the show was the pacing, and then as soon as they get to going into the ring it all felt rushed and nowhere near as interesting.

For anyone who hasn't watched it yet and is an Amazon Prime member, the Expanse season 1-3 is launching worldwide on Prime Video February 8th. Season 4 will be launching "later this year". Not sure when that is exactly but cast and crew speculate it'll be late summer/early fall time frame

Quote:
Season 3 will be available to Prime members in over 200 countries and territories starting Feb. 8. For those of you who can’t wait, don’t worry! Seasons 1 and 2 are currently available on Amazon Prime Video to tide you over until February. For international audiences, you’ll be able to access seasons 1-3 on February 8.

So I've recently started reading the books. On book 2 now and god damn, Avasarala is even more of a bad ass in the books! Love it.

Recommend everyone read the books as well. There's like 8 of them but they're a pretty quick read and not at all intimidating like Song of Ice & Fire series.

I just got to Babylon's Ashes myself. It's been epic so far. Lol yeah she curses like a sailor. I think the producers were saying that they were restricted to what they could show before since it was on TV, now with Amazon they have no restrictions... All the zero-g sex and swearing anyone could possibly want.

Apparently we are going to hear an announcement about season 4 soon. Cas Anvar tweeting a hint to that effect.

I just started reading book 7 last night, really hoping the show works for Amazon and we see all the novels get the TV treatment. I really, really want to see book 5 get done at the very least (and hoping they even get a boost to their FX budget to really knock it out of the park).

Book 5/6 are amazing. Truly the "Empire Strikes Back" of The Expanse universe.

Just finished 7. Fingers crossed but apparently 8 is supposed to be out later this month!

Really would like to see how book 5 gets handled, I imagine the special effects being very Roman Emmerich like... I really really hope they can make it all the way to book 8+ and show what finally happened to the Gate builders

Rumor has it they brought some of the book 5 story lines over for season 4, I was not a huge fan of some of the Cibola Burn story characters in general. Though if give them the Klaes Ashford treatment I might be able to stomach it. Looks like they have though with Murtry getting an excellent actor casting ala David Straitharn

On Book 5/6... halfway through 6.
