The Expanse

Starts December 14th on Syfy Channel . th series is from these books. i read the first two and while i really liked them and bought the third book for some reason I did not read it yet and the series is up to five books..
The writer James A. Corey is really a pen name for two people.

show

I think it could be a good tv series but i fear it make be way to expensive to make like Firefly and Farscape were but the first book was good.. First book was nominated for some decent awards

Yeah, I watched it. Kind of a yawner until the end. I'll reserve judgement until mid way through the season. I enjoyed Childhood's End much more today.

I agree episode 1 was slow. Number 2 was a tad better.. But now that I have watched 1 through 4 each episode gets better in my opinion. I thought 3 and 4 were very good. I just hope the slow pace of the first two episodes don't tune people out..

The show is really good. The expense on the episodes must be something I am enjoying it.

Season 2 started last week. It's a shame the ratings are so low because I am sure the
Syfy channel will panic and probably cancel it. I hope the don't becuase it's a really decent show. Hopefully the won't.
