The Expanse w/Thomas Jane on SyFy Channel
« on: December 15, 2015, 04:04:01 AM »
Anybody else watch the premiere of this show? It's roughly set in 23rd Century with Earth (run by U.N.) ready to battle Mars and The Belt (where Air & Water are worth more than Gold).

I have it on the DVR.  Is it any good?

It looked very interesting, but I said that about that other Syfy show (the one with the disease in the compound) and that sucked.

Good atmosphere, good art direction, not too much exposition.  It also didn't look egregiously Canadian or low-budget, a typical SyFy channel issue.  Thomas Jane and his dumb hat seem totally out of place.

What Edwin said. I'm still not sure how I felt after finishing it though tomorrow night has another episode airing. I didn't get any immediate interest in the characters and I like Thomas Jane as an actor but he seemed kind of out of place.

I love this show and the second season has started up now for those who don't know. They try to market it as GOT in Space which is obviously an oversell but it is a damn good show.

Now if only the first season wasn't pay-per-episode VOD, or on Netflix, or whatever...

BUMP because it's been on Prime for a while. We binged S1 between last night and tonight and this might be among the best sci-fi shows I've ever seen.
