Just got done watching the entire 4 seasons of The Expanse again.

Ed001, did you finish Season 4 in the end? What did you think?

{Ed001's Note - just finished it and loved it. It is a fantastic show. It deserves a much wider audience.}

hi guys, never watched or seen anything on it. what's it all about?


{Ed001's Note - it is sci-fi. Basically the main theme of the show is the friction between those still living on earth and those who have grown up on Mars and those who are from colonies elsewhere (Belters). That is in essence what it is about, though there are other stories running through it. It is basically about the Belters being the oppressed minority caught in between Mars and Earth's animosity. While it is fiction, they have tried to keep very close to scientific accuracy, while not letting that destroy the tale.

I highly recommend it.}

It is utterly brilliant northernbeasle. It's one of the few Sci-fi shows that actually takes the "sci" in Sci-fi seriously but not to the point that it's boring.

Star Trek it is not, so I wouldn't walk in expecting anything like that. However, I do see this show as a technology bridge between present day and Star Trek. In the Expanse they don't use warp drives, laser beams or anything that's scientifically out of reach. They still use current weaponary like guns and nukes, except they have the addition of rail guns and Nuclear fusion.

There is one major problem with this show though, and that's some of the acting is a bit cringe. However, it doesn't take away from the story or the shows quality.

And by the way, the CGI is some of the most impressive I've seen in a TV show, especially given the budget they had for the first 3 series.
