Finally got back into binge watching The Expanse in UHD and enjoying it so far.

Re: What are you watching right now?

Syfy cancelled it after season 3 and there was a massive uproar. Loads of famous people (e.g. George R R Martin) texted Jeff Bezos aka Mr Amazon and he got his tv chief to look at it, she was blown away and picked it up for a fourth season which aired last year and it has been renewed for a fifth season which is presumably in production. You should take a look at the The Expanse thread in this forum because a lot of links for the
campaign to get it renewed are in there. You had things like a plane flying over Amazon HQ for 2 days with a banner saying "save the expanse", cakes being delivered to the tv chiefs office and some of the fan made content put on youtube was fantastic. I haven't seen such an energised fan base since Jericho was cancelled. It really was the stupidest decision to make, this series is amazing and producers should be allowed to tell the full story like GoT. I think I read in SFX a while ago that it is based on a 9 book saga and the two dudes who write the books have just finished (back then) writing the ninth book. So the good thing for Amazon is that they know exactly where they are heading story wise and can plan everything. You'll see a massive different between season 1-3 and season 4. Amazon have thrown a tonne of money at it to expand the locations and bring it to its full potential and it is very humbling from a fan's point of view to see such a superb scifi series given the respect it deserves.

Re: What are you watching right now?

Np, i consider it a civic duty to spread the word and get as many people to watch it as poss. People like to take the mickey out if me for how fussy i am with what i like and watch. The Expanse is perfection as far as i am concerned; proper serious quality scifi. That being said, i have just shot myself in the foot looking up the premiere date for season 5.

Re: What are you watching right now?

I had read the books . . before finding out there was a TV series.

I don't normally take to 'TV adaptations' of books I've enjoyed, but the series was was excellent


to be honest, I think I need to catch up with the book Tiamat’s Wrath

*goes to check*

l would not say anybody is taking the mickey out of you General as its more a case of some others offering a differing opinion.

If its not got a phone box that can travel through time and space i'm not interested (and no, I don't mean 'Bill and ted's excellent adventure' )

p.s. 'serious scifi' is boring, but its good to have a choice

we shall agree to disagree because you and I are polar opposites. I think Dr Who is an absolute disgrace and should be banned from tv.

Controversial ! But as I said, it's good to have a choice. DW attracts higher and wider audiences than 'pure evangelical scifi'. However, will seek out The Expanse and give it a go.

Re: What are you watching right now?

The Expanse is excellent but I didn't like the current season as much as previous ones. It wasn't bad but something just didn't click with me as much.

the originals were ok and in keeping with the production quality at the time. The modern ones though are just a poor excuse to be cheap and what I class as peasant tv. The production quality is awful and the kind of thing I would do if I was an amateur tv producer trying to make my first tv series in my garage.
