    The Expanse [Megathread]

    If you aren't watching this show you are bad.

    Finally, we have a show for the genuinely sci fi people. Sci fi ended with an 'okay' ending of stargate universe (that was a bad show that ended well)

    [As a cynical fat nerd massive sci fi shitler, The Expanse is the best original (excluding the books) that there is currently by a long shot].





    Okay, gents and sci fi guys enthusiasts. This is the mega thread for those that watch the show but who haven't read the books

    From a personal POV, this show is amazing. Truly beautiful.

    It has a Game of Thrones esc 'thrown in the deep end' feel at the beginning of it (eg, what the fuck does OPA stand for, yes I googled it). It doesn't fill random scenes with expositional dialogue and world building. It makes you build the solar system slowly and in your own head.

    This show is truly fucking brilliant, seriously watch it. There are characters to like and despise, and to enjoy but consider naive but grow. There is a plot that isn't completely retarded and physics that is probably hugely accurate to 200 years or so in the future.

    This is a little bit like Game of Thrones. It is brilliant but almost unexplainably so. Seriously, watch this.

    True sci fi people, this is seriously the latest thing you should watch.

    First.

    Completely agree. Last episode was fantastic (as was every other episode).

    I bought the season 1 Blu-Ray before watching any of the episodes (though I did watch the CQB battle on YouTube), and I have to say it was some of the best money I've ever spent.

    Only seen bits and pieces of season 2, and I don't have SyFy. So I will watch the first 3 episodes on the SyFy Now app, then check in later.

    Google Play has both seasons for sale (Season 2 will be available as it airs).

    Whenever you're sitting around doing nothing you're watching it.

    I watched the first season on my kodi tv addons. Get a raspberry pi and do not be bothered where to watch series ever again, because it has everything.

    While this is great, do we really need a separate thread just for it?

    But yes, still amazing show. S1 really good, 4 episodes into S2 and it's even better.

    S1 is on netflix, unsure why S2 is taking its time to get on there. Just stream/download from your (dis)reputable provider of preference.

    Didn't know about this, but if there are books I think I'll read them first.

    Expanse started as an idea for MMORPG. That's why you have three distinct factions (Earthers, Martians and Belters) and different concepts in ship design.

    Imagine EVE, but with Kerbal physics model.
