    I've seen claims that the reduced number of episodes gives them a larger CGI budget, but that one shot in Ep2 where they open the airlock and zoom out from the Roci looked really bad below their usual standard.

    Rosenfeld and Liang have the potential to be good characters but I doubt they'll get too much screen time.

    Genuinely didint bother with the series once it switched to Amazon, as Amazon studios CGI looks weird. Cant explain it, feels a bit like a Zack Sneider film at all times. Just wrong

    Feels like they are still building a slow coherent story rather than 4 episodes from ending it.

    Good episode but the pacing feels off somehow
    "I think we could all do with sitting back a bit and detaching ourselves from the situation to really think about how these issues reflect on our future and how we discuss them here and be a bit less aggressive or defensive because everyone has a complicated set of circumstances that has led the to place importance on particular issues and it doesn't meany any of them is less valid, we just need to look at the broader picture"

    Had no problems with the CGI, at least I didnt catch it/dwell on it. Probably because that whole scene(s) was, too me, a bit too far in every sense of the way.

    episode 4, way to much pad considering the number of episodes left.
    I also dont get the relevance of the strange dogs cold opens , when that really is only relevant for future seasons.

    Yes. Cara and Xan are important for the end of the book story.

    yeah, that felt like a just about complete filler episode.

    Is the book Tiamat's wrath the last one? Plenty of avenues to go from there altho the Roci crew are pretty much literally end of life by then (age wise).

    Finished it yesterday, and I had no fucking clue what happened during the ring station bit.
    The last page was a fun surprise.

    Xan and Cara showing up on the final season of the TV show, and also being core to the story line in books 8 & 9 which is 30+ years later.
    This makes me think there is more of The Expanse planned. I don't see why you would include the Laconia story line if it ends here.

    There's rumours around about 3 movies at the moment, partially hinted at by some of the actors in the show. Nothing confirmed yet.

    There is also a final novella coming later this year

      Spoiler:

    Given that they already included the Laconia part set 30+ years later, which in the books "feature" the unceremonious death of Avasarala, there's hope they keep her alive in the books. Or at least write her the glorious death she deserves.


    On an unrelated note: I like how they handle the death of Alex. A few plausible comments and memories here and there.

    So apparently there are bonus scenes hidden this season when you pause an episode and check X-Ray. Works on mobile and browser apps. One per episode. Some pretty interesting contexts too that you'd be missing out on as well.

    which part confused you? Holden blowing up the station and closing the ringspace? He figured out the other universe entities hated it and wanted it gone but they couldn't wreck it but he could. Without it there there is no ringspace and no entities trying to wreck humanity.
