Just got done watching Zoo, Season 1 started off really, really promising. It was a very interesting idea about how animals no longer saw Humans as an apex predator, and began targeting them. I was lead to believe this would end up being an action series based on a war between man and animals, but instead, it became a bipolar sci-fi/action show, which didn't know whether its characters wanted to stay or go.

This got even worse in Season 3, as just about every single dead relative of Jackson Oz(the main character in the show) has some how found themselves to be alive, through the most miraculous of circumstances.
Oh and he has a long lost relative that was kept a secret from him. Plus a few other people "die" in his team and then are seemingly back from the dead. I am kind of glad they cancelled the show, as I would imagine Season 4 would have been talking hybrid animals acting like humans and having scientific debates with each other about how to manipulate the human race into working for them. Whilst wearing clown outfits.

The Expanse

Set more than 200 years into the future Earth has colonized Mars, the Asteroid Belt and some Moons surrounding Jupiter.

Tensions have been high between Mars and Earth for some time, with the Asteroid Belt(Belters) feeling that both view them as inferior and slaves(kind of true, but not completely).

It's a tale of betrayals and deception for the most part, losts of plot twists and interesting character reveals. It can get quite confusing at times, as there are 3 major storylines going on at once. One for Earth, one for Mars and one for the Belt, as well as several minor storylines being played out too. The great thing about it is that all of the storylines including the minor ones all form into one for the final 2 episodes of each series. I think it could be done a little better, but that doesn't mean they did it completely wrong.

The characters are interesting(although some are very, very annoying), and given it's a sci-fi show, you've kind of got to give it some room for cheesiness in the script. The thing I found most intriguing was how the gravity on different planets/asteroids effected the human body. I was quite pleased to see the realism in this, as it's something that is very rarely covered. For example, the people that were born/lived a very long time on the Asteroid Belt, had all kinds of bone deficiencies and muscular issue's, aswell as having severe pain while in normal gravity situations.

The CGI in places is awesome, as you'd expect of a space sci-fi show, but it's not the usual pew pew laser beams and phton torpedos. The hand held guns are more like mini-rail guns but not nearly as destructive, the spaceships have proper rail guns for close combat and tactical nuclear warheads for torpedos. Plus they have the planet destroying nukes, which(spoiler alert), Earth fires 151 of them at one point in the series, you'll have to watch it to find out why.

All 3 factions(Earthers, Martians and Belters) seem to paint each other as the bad guys, the show does you no favours in helping decide who's good and bad either, not until a full reveal later in the series.

Much of the show is either in the belt or in space, Earth has a few scenes, mainly in the place of government. I don't actually remember their being any scenes on Mars, aside from 1 training exercise by Martian Marines to introduce their characters.

For me, this show serves as a bridge between current real life technologies and the ridiculous technologies of shows like Star Trek. There is nothing like warp drives or pew pew laser rifles, it's predominantly just bigger and better versions of things we already have. I'm good with that, as I always wondered what came before the warp core or photon torpedos, you know?
Definitely worth a watch in my eyes and Season 3 comes out at the end of this year or the start of next year. Sorry if this seems to be all jumbled and rambling, I was just typing stuff about the show as it came to my head lol.

{Ed001's Note - I will have a look at this mate, thanks for the recommendation.}

No problem Ed. It's also worth mentioning that this is a Syfy channel TV Series, but it really isn't the usual tacky garbage that they put on. Plus I must correct my previous post, Season 3 is concluding this weekend on Syfy, but won't be coming to Netflix until October(ish).

{Ed001's Note - I just looked at the app I use to track what I watch, I have that bookmarked as one to check out already, so I just forgot about it.

I have just started on Condor, that is looking interesting so far after the first ep.}


2.) 14 Aug 2018 13:48:39
gave this a try and it is good mate, enjoying it so far.


3.) 14 Aug 2018 20:33:45
I really like it too, excited for Season 3 when it comes onto Netflix.

{Ed001's Note - I am still on season 1. I watched the first episode of Altered Carbon the other night, which was intriguing at least. It made me want to see more.

Also Colony is quite good.}


4.) 14 Aug 2018 20:45:03
I've been looking at those two for a little bit, not really knowing if I want to watch them yet.

{Ed001's Note - I am not one for bingewatching a show, would rather watch lots of different things, so I try loads of things. Those two are among the better ones, along with Preacher. I like Preacher. Stranger Things I am still undecided on.}


5.) 14 Aug 2018 20:46:01
At the moment I'm watching Zoo, which was really interesting until Season 2 started. I'm not sure I like the direction it's going, and may stop watching after another 2 episodes or so.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know that one. Tell you what I would say to not bother with, Cloak and Dagger. It is a Marvel thing, but it is not particularly good, just odd.}


6.) 14 Aug 2018 21:29:14
Stranger Things is bloody excellent Ed. Really, it's the best thing I've watched in a while.

{Ed001's Note - I have only watched a few episodes but it is intriguing. Certainly worth a watch so far.}

Just watched Stranger Things seasons 1 and 2 in 2 days. Anyone else watching/watched it? Pretty good series

hsf

{Ed001's Note - not seen it, what is it about? I tried watching Power but it had 50 Cent in it and he stank up every scene he was in. Tried that The 100 but it was just trash. Impulse was meh. Gave that 'The Handmaid's Tale' a bash, but just found it a bit dark and disturbing for my tastes. I just want something on in the background while I edit that keeps me focused on work and makes me notice the time when I have to change episode. Otherwise I can get lost in research or writing and end up not noticing I haven't eaten all day.}


1.) 17 Jul 2018 19:48:53
I really don't know how to explain it without creating the great wall of text, so I guess I'll just post the trailer and hope it grabs you.

{Ed001's Note - I will take a look thanks.}


2.) 17 Jul 2018 20:01:01
Sorry I posted a bit too quickly before, so I'll carry on here.
What I will say, is there are some genuinely great moments in the series, with excellent acting, excellent script and even though some of it is a little bit cliche it works brilliantly. For example, you have your typical bullies and your typical teen parties etc, but those moments genuinely build the characters and don't just put on a show. There is also a typical love triangle going on, and when that one finishes, another one starts, but again it works well.
Admittedly, this is all stuff that would normally annoy the hell out of me and make me turn it off, but it's actually done well and I feel it even helps the series along. There is a scene in season 2, involving one of the nerds Dustin and a popular older kid called Steve. They are just walking down a railroad talking, but it's one of the best scenes in the series outside of the main characters.

The best way I can say it, is if you're a bit of a nerd and enjoy dark science fiction, then you should appreciate some aspects of this series at least.

Question guys and girls, am I the only one who thinks that Game of Thrones is rubbish?

hsf

1.) 06 Jan 2017 09:13:18
I think its amazing but did take me a while to get into, what series have you watched?


 

 

17 Oct 2016 17:30:44
What's peoples thoughts on Falling Skies? CGI in it is a bit meh at times, but it's quite good. I watched 5 episodes in a row last night, just couldn't put it down!

hsf

{Ed001's Note - that the one with the alien invasion and the doc out of ER as the lead? If so I didn't enjoy that, forced myself to sit through a couple of seasons and couldn't stomach any more.}


1.) 17 Oct 2016 21:56:31
You're a hard one to please Ed001. I take this as a person challenge.

{Ed001's Note - not really I just didn't think that was good. It was hardly Peaky Binders was it?}


2.) 01 Nov 2016 16:06:19
You recommend peaky blinders then Ed? I managed to miss it but acquired first 2 series boxset cheap.

{Ed001's Note - I like it, I know Ed003 liked it too. My parents are watching through it at the moment and they are enjoying it as well.}


3.) 01 Nov 2016 23:23:32
Just watched the first two. Not too bad so far. Its only really just introducing and setting everything up but interesting

{Ed003's Note - gets intense stay with it.Brilliant I'd go as far as,rumour of a film being made last I heard}

Lucy Lui. She was so hot in Lucky Number Sleven.

{Ed001's Note - her best was Payback with Mel Gibson when she was the dominatrix.}
