Still get a laugh at his hair, hat on, he looks like part of the "Rat Pack" and he's heading to a show to sing. Hat off and all I can think of is this guy: :lol:

Ok, this turned out to be everything I had hoped for from Syfy. Well done guys.

Bring on season 2! Sadly, it looks like we have to wait for 2017.

I give the series and overall grade of a a. But I thought the finale was more of a B plus. Shop a little too dark. And I don't like how this alien organism was behaving.



I will also have to rewatch it on line for the things I missed. Especially the whole flashback.

Read the books as they came out, became a big fan. Character appearances and mannerisms are different than my own personal imaginings, but that's life.

One thing that kinda stuck in my craw though was how they imagined Eros. From the book I imagined Eros to be a kinda dingier version of Las Vegas, all glittery and loud but when you look past that you see the cracks in the fake facade.

The SyFy Eros looked more like a penal colony, certainly not some place I'd wanna spend my hard-earned credits from rock hopping the Belt.

All in all I did enjoy what I watched, and I'll be sure to check back in when it's the new season.

I was a little disappointed with Eros as well, but I thought that the actor playing Amos nailed his character. He got better and better every episode IMHO.

I was wondering how similar The Expanse opening credits reminded me of Game of Thrones. Apparently not an accident. http://www.vox.com/2016/2/4/10912274/th ... -magicians

I'll have to check this out!

I really enjoyed Dark Matter--it really scratched my "Firefly" itch like nothing since.

Is this show on Netflix yet?

I said the exact same thing about Dark Matter, it was hard keeping Dark Matter, Expanse, and another show I was watching separate.

I watched the last 2 episodes of The Expanse last night, horrible mistake watching them on demand. The 2 hour season finale was about an hour of commercials, was not impressed with that. On a different note about SyFy, they look to be knocking it out of the park with upcoming shows. Hoping they keep it up and move away from the B horror movies.

Just noticed season 2 is now free on Amazon. I think season 3 is supposed to start the end of this month or the beginning of March.

Damn, I really like this show. And this season has been excellent so far...

‘The Expanse’ To End On Syfy With Season 3, Will Be Shopped Elsewhere By Alcon

The current third season of The Expanse will be the space drama’s last one on Syfy. The cable network has decided not to renew the show for a fourth season, with the last episode slated to air in early July. Alcon Television Group, which fully finances and produces the critically praised series, plans to shop it to other buyers.

“The Expanse transported us across the solar system for three brilliant seasons of television,” said Chris McCumber, President, Entertainment Networks for NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. “Everyone at Syfy is a massive fan of the series, and this was an incredibly difficult decision. We want to sincerely thank The Expanse’s amazing cast, crew and all the dedicated creatives who helped bring James S.A. Corey’s story to life. And to the series’ loyal fans, we thank you most of all.”

You know, I'm highly critical of Fox and how they make bad choices, but I said to myself the other day "wow, that was a good choice" for something Fox did. (Honestly cant remember).
It appears the reason they made a good choice is they sent their idiots to NBC universal/SyFy.
