May 2018

Dammit! I was sure at least expanse was safe bc they canceled their other space opera. Ugh. Dark matter hurt more bc I connected so much more with the characters but this had a great story.

May 2018

The expanse had only 500k viewers, and was pretty expensive to make. The audience for sci-fi is probably more likely to torrent and the like too.

May 2018

adamathefrog And this is exactly why in 2018 networks need to understand that people aren't watching tv the way they used to 15 years ago and adapt accordingly. Either that or shows need to or they're gonna keep facing cancellation until someone figures it out.

June 2018

If not Amazon and Jeff Bezos as a huge fan of Expanse series books, would be game over for us. I'd go ahead and buy something from Amazon as an act of appreciation.

June 2018

dda300 I already did. I bought the first book in the Expanse series lol. It's great so far almost finished with it. Hearing the news of Amazon picking this up made me really happy to be a Prime member. The only other show they have that I look forward to is Man In The High Castle.

Hey, is it any good? Seriously I am 10 minutes into the first episode and already bored. The fact that they speak English and some alien language at the same time is really annoying too. And as much as I find Thomas Jane attractive, the guy never really scored a good movie so... I'm am dubious.
I love sci fi movies, but tv shows never. Defiance was a joke for me...

Vou explicar o básico pro pessoal que tá perdido vamos lá, nos fomos explorar o universo graças a essas viagem ficamos divididos entre:
Terra(terraqueos)
Marte(marcianos )
BELT Anéis de Saturno (BELTERS)
TODOS SÃO HUMANOS
BELTERS são tipo a rale terraqueos e marcianos estão cagando e andando pra eles.
Terra e Marte vive tipo uma guerra fria,
BELTERS tem medo de que eles se una e fica os dois contra eles ou que se eles começarem uma guerra BELT ficará no meio da treta
CERES OU EROS SÃO LOCALIZADO EM BELT TIPO DISTRITOS PORÉM ELES FLUTUAM EM LUGARES DIFERENTES, BELTERS POR VIVEREM EM UMA GRAVIDADE SIMULADA NÃO CONSEGUEM VIVER NA TERRA.
O resto é explicados durante a série e as revelações estão todas na temporada
SE ESCREVI ALGO ERRADO PODEM CORRIGIR, BOA SÉRIE!

Je n'ai jamais compris l'engouement pour Battlestar Galactica, mais néanmoins, cette série semble être LA référence en terme de série SF. Et bien je crois que la référence vient de changer.

The Expanse c'est un univers très fourni, et réaliste dans sa vision futuriste de notre monde.

Des personnages intéressants, certains avec une histoire, d'autres non, mais tous avec une personnalité.

On passe d'une enquête policière à un mystère bien plus grand et allant bien au delà de ce qu'on pouvait croire au départ, et les enjeux changent totalement en quelques épisodes.
On a aussi droit à notre dose de bataille spatiale.

Les effets spéciaux sont corrects voire parfois très bons (je passe outre la partie en combinaison autour d'Eros).

Cette série est facilement venue s'insérer dans mon top 5 des séries que je regarde.

I never understood the craze for Battlestar Galactica, but nevertheless, this series seems to be THE reference in terms of series SF. Well I think the reference has changed.

The Expanse is a very provided universe, and realistic in its futuristic vision of our world.

Interesting characters, some with a story, others not, but all with a personality.

We go from a police investigation to a much bigger mystery and going far beyond what we could originally believe, and the stakes change totally in a few episodes.
We are also entitled to our dose of space battle.

The special effects are correct and sometimes very good (I pass the part in combination around Eros).

This series easily came to fit into my top 5 series as I watch.

C'est pas faux! Quasiment entièrement d'accord avec toi, c'est une série s.f hyper réaliste. J'ai l'impression que ça fait un bon petit moment qu'on en a pas eu des séries de cet acabit, non?!!

Par contre, j'sais pas si la référence a changé pour moi. Battlestar Galactica et The expanse, même si leur lien est l'espace...ces séries n'ont pas l'air de faire partie du même type de s.f.

Perso, je pense que l'engouement pour BSG, dont tu parles, procèdes entre autre des sujets qu'on peut extraire de la série qui naviguent entre la spiritualité, énormément de sujets sociétaux, une certaine métaphysique, voire même à la fin une proposition sympa d'une théorie sur nos origines qui n'est pas piqué des vers...

May 2017

La référence cest un peu tôt pour le dire... Mais en série sf space opéra on est gâté. Ya le très moyen killjoy et le bon dark matter aussi.
On verra avec les saisons.
Star trek c hyper particulier......jm les films.un peu moins les series.
Par contre battlestar je peux comprendre qu'on aime pas, mais c vrai que c'est la référence incontestable. J'ai adoré juska kil fasse leur grève de scénariste et c parti en couille.
Par contre la théorie sur les origines, amené trop rapidement mais vraiment vraiment une velle trouvaille.

February 2018

Battlestar aborse surtout les dogmes et les croyances. Son histoire est vraiment basée sur la survivance et le désir de trouver une explication à son existence. Alors que Expanse balaye beaucoup plus de sujets je dirais.

March 2018

Pour moi les références en SF seraient plutôt Babylon 5 et Farscape 😉

May 2018

J'ai vu "kiljoy" au dessus, j'ai eu envie de mourir. C'est mal réalisé, mal joué, mal écrit et immature... Comment on peut parler de BSG dans le même message haha.
Je sais pas si The Expanse est la référence en SF, mais c'est une excellente série c'est sûr. BSG restera pour moi quelque chose de très fort, sans aucun doute la série de SF la plus intelligente je pense. The Expanse brille plutôt par son histoire. Si vous l'avez pas vu et bien qu'elle ait elle aussi été annulée, Stargate Universe est vraiment une excellente série de SF.
Toute façon en SF je commence à avoir l'habitude, tout finit par être annulé prématurément et on se retrouve à bouffer 16 saisons de 13 Reasons Why et compagnie...

January 2018

The Expanse is that tv-show I haven’t heard much about, but the things I have heard have only been good. No, not good. Great. I heard it was one of the best sci-fi shows ever made, and definitely the best of the last decade. Pretty much to live up to, huh?

I wasn’t disappointed. To be honest, I’d already watched the first episode once, but it was when the series had just premiered and I barely remembered anything. Re-watching that episode I realized why – it’s not easy to follow everything until you’ve got the hang of everything. The world, the politics, who is the bad guy and who is the good guy, if there even is such a thing. The Expanse kind of have a few similarities with Game of Thrones in that way. I’ve heard the comparison before, some critics even call The Expanse “Game of Thrones in space“.

Like in Game of Thrones, it took me a while to learn everything in The Expanse. The names of the characters, the places, who was at war with who and why. And like Game of Thrones, I wasn’t completely sold after the first episode. I wasn’t completely sold after the second one either, or the third. Like Game of Thrones, I had to be patient in order to finally get to the point where it stops being boring, and start to become fascinating and maybe even exciting. But unlike Game of Thrones, it didn’t take an entire season. I started to enjoy the ride after four or five episodes, and after that I liked the show more and more after each episode. Infact, I liked it more and more after each minute. After each Second. Until I suddenly was completely filled with admiration for the plot.

So, this is what I picked up about the storyline after ten episodes. The Expanse is a tv-show set in space. There are three primary lead characters in different places of the world, who are each as important to the plot as the others. On earth we have a U.N undersecretary who are trying to avoid a war between earth and mars. Oh yes, a big part of earths population relocated to mars and build their own society some years ago, did I forget to mention that? In another part of the world we have a spaceship with an equally important XO who, after a big tragedy, is accidentally responsible for spreading false information about an attack towards earth. On the third and final end, we have a detective, born and raised on Ceres, which is located in the middle of the asteroid belt. Now, to explain the plot further I need to talk a little bit about the relations between these different places, or politics if you will. Earth is the biggest and most powerful nation in general. They are led by the U.N. and everyone on earth are referred to as ‘earthers’. Mars on the other hand, they may not be as big, but they are way more advanced in technology which gives them a big advantage if they would ever need one. They’re called “martians”. Lastly we have the asteroid belt, where the ‘belters’ live and breed. This is a difficult place to grow up in. Water is a resource not easy to come by, to breath the air is a daily struggle, and people are not generally very friendly – for good reason. The belt is the place where you look out for yourself, or you won’t survive.

So, how does all this fit together? Well, in the first few episodes, this is a question you’ll definitely be asking yourself over and over again. Like I mentioned before, it all starts with an attack towards earth. Well, not towards earth specifically, but towards one of their spacecrafts. Which could mean an act of war. So when the word spreads that mars is behind the attack, things get complicated and all of a sudden the world might be in for a star war (-s, heh). But the U.N. secretary doesn’t seem to think this whole thing adds up, and soon enough she’ll begin to wonder if maybe there is a third party who wants to start a world war between mars and earth. And yes, the other two lead characters fit into this as well, you’ll see.

The Expanse is definitely a show worth watching, I’m actually surprised at how little attention it has got. But maybe that’s just where I come from. Anyways, I know this all seems a little blurry, but once you watch the show, the pieces will all fit together very nicely. So go do that. Go watch the show. It’ll be great.

Hi Tarra, I too had the same feeling after watching the pilot. 👎🏻

December 2015

For some reason the last couple shows of that type that SYFY has done I couldn't get into: Dark Matter I think started good the first couple episodes but then got boring. Childhoods End I couldn't finish after seeing that ridiculous looking creature in it because it made the whole show seem like a joke. I did watch Ascension, though I somewhat had to force myself to finish it. Killjoys, which I would consider the best of that bunch, was pretty good, but not good enough for me to try and keep up with it. And it's not that I don't like that type of show, it's just one of these networks out there need to make one that's actually worth watching. Just my opinion though.

Not everyone has the same taste. Some tasteless people love NCIS, others prefer real and clever drama like The Wire.

March 2016

The first two episodes I was unsure about it and nearly dropped it, but after three and four, I got hooked.

November 2016

Like every show, you should see at least 33% tô know if u will like it or not. The show only reveals itself after third episode, if u get at -The fourth and don't like, ok. But it's very good, you can't judge had only watched two episodes...

November 2016

Well I had to judge it based on 2 episodes since it was so boring to me I couldn't even focus hardly on it lol

July 2017

It's based on the books...there is slow build up....shit hits the fan from mid season..its very slow at start

August 2017

It was a while back i watched season 1 and as you I almost stopped watching. Luckily i didnt and tbh you're missing out big time if you're a sci-fi fan. You think you know where its going but you have no idea lol.

February 2018

I hate sci-fi shows but this show was an exception. ... after watching pilot i was going to drop it but somehow managed to go through first 4 5 episodes and now its awesome one of my favorites. Give it at least 7 8 episodes and then the story would kick in real hard

February 2018

I thought the same. I was watching when I couldn't sleep hahaha it helped me, I fell in sleep at the same time

October 2018

I also dropped this show after the first episode when it first came out. And what a massive mistake that was. Fortunately in. 2018 I noticed it was being rated amongst the best all time sci-fi shows, so I another look. Yes, this series has a slow build which is why you need to get through the first few episodes before really seeing the depth and quality of the story and production. Now I'm totally hooked and consider The Expanse as possibly my all-time favourite show, and I can tell you I watch alot of shows, sci-fi in particular. Have another look, you won't regret it!
