    I saw Bull moreso in Drummer, what part of his role did they put into Ashford? Granted the memorable part of Bull to me was the mech suit, so maybe I'm forgetting something.
    In the books Bulls big thing was being the most experienced & qualified person to lead the ship, but not getting the role for political reasons and how he handles that.

    That was Ashfords arc on the show and the big way show-ashford differed from book-ashford.

    Show-Ashford, as a character, was a lot more likeable because of the personality traits he was given from bull.

    Bull got split into both Ashford and Drummer.

    and it made the two far more engaging than in the books. Was a good call.

    Hopefully they can do something similar with the next bit/book. Which kinda took a long time to get anywhere imo.

    Yeah, they did a pretty good job with Drummer and Ashford. I could've done without the Belter accent, but I know what they were going for there.

    I also just remembered that they mixed Sam into Drummer as well (during last season too I think), other than her engineering skills.

    "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"
