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.
