How come the expanse does IBO's plot better than IBO? It does the plot, setting and politics better.
>people in the dort are supposed to be poor
>everyone looks like they've eaten a 4 course meal and have perfect hair.
Because The Expanse is based on a well written and critically acclaim book series with actual thought put into it and its setting, while Gundam is the worlds most ambitious attempt to tell the same story as many times as they can while putting as little effort into it as possible and seeing how long otaku will let them continue to get away with it.
No end in sight, by the way.
But Mars is supposed to be a shithole. Thats the whole point.
Instead, everyone we see is in great physical condition, well fed, well clothed, well equipped (though obviously not to the unrealistic technological standards of Gallahorn)...
They don't seem to really be in desperate need of anything. It sort of undercuts the supposed setup of the story.
They keep saying that their lives are tough, but they SAY it instead of actually SHOWING it. You can tell me that a character is a tactical genius as many times as you want, but if all of their military plans that we see are stupid I still won't believe you.
Yeah, when there are people literally referred to as "Human debris" you'd expect them to look like a Jew in the wrong place at the wrong time in the 1940s, not like a professional body builder
MARS is a shithole. And they go about it for four or five episodes shoving emaciated and dying children in your face. The colonies are first world shitholes like Detroit and Atlanta. Nobody is outright starving, but they've gotta sell their soul to the company store to get said food. They're overworked, underpaid, discriminated against for advamcement, and used as fodder for political gain. You don't have to live in a literally lawless fuck hole of an Africa analog for people above you to make life hell.
The problem being is that you cant connect and understand.
3 episodes for the colonies werent enough to build them up.
They keep showing poverty in Mars but in the end that's all they do. Showing background characters. If the cast was actually involved in said problems it would be easier to connect.
Sure it's in their background but it isnt enough.
In the very first episode they break free by killing their abusers and pretty much have fun the rest of the way.
It'd be nice if that little "holy shit they're firing like mad don't they know how much ammo costs" line wasn't a throwaway quip that went nowhere. Not to mention the ship itself has had zero problems of its own.
This really could have been a 47 episode series if it properly exploited what it set up in the first episodes.

I haven't followed the TV series but the books are AAA+++S quality. In the class of medium level scifi it's definitely the best series I've ever read(at the super scifi level The Culture will never be surpassed).
Dort and Mars are supposed to be shitholes. Dort did very little to give the audience the impression that the people are oppressed. Gundam is an anime, a visual medium by its very nature. It should SHOW us that these characters are living in squalor. The episode Jupiter Jazz did more to show us the condition of the people Callisto in one 1 minute montage than IBO has done to show the horrible living conditions of the people in Dort.
ikr, it's like a game of thrones-style intro except for a genre i care about
>Instead, everyone we see is in great physical condition, well fed, well clothed, well equipped (though obviously not to the unrealistic technological standards of Gallahorn)...
It hasn't gotten so bad to the point we are seeing young girls being used as pilots and cum dumpsters. Not yet at least. When I was thinking of human debris, I was also thinking about young girls being used as living fleshlights for the cruel adults.
Down on their luck tramps don't rise up and stand up against tyrants.
>Horrific rotation on barrel or targeting
>Shell casings shell casings shell casings
>barrel heat up
>Flimsy turret mounts
3/10 at best bad heat management, complex and bulky firing mechanism, added recoil,
I do like that the guns seem to have back vents though, even if on something that large they don't matter because while recoil is bad for smaller personal weapons it is not an issue for space craft.
I agree but we can go Atomic Rockets some other time.
see, when people bitch like this it tells me that they just want to tell everyone they know the basics of how heat and chemistry, etc work in space.
But almost all of those can be explained away by clever engineering if you wanted to try.
Except for shell casings, but i mean ffs, this thing is a long-orbit patroller. Nothing to collide with
HOMEWORLD IS THE SHIZNIT!
Knows what is good, By instead using mass drivers, you can cut out propellent charge and instead use reactor power to launch your KE's While heat build up is moderately higher due to rail induction, the trade off is a vastly improved firing speed and penetration, which in zero g environments is crucial. The gattling gun is to mass drivers what a row of English archers is to one 9mm pistol.
I thought thety were supposed to be working class porn, like people here who only who live pay check to paycheck. Long working hours, little income.
The child soldiers at the beginning anad main characters were a good dipiction of poor.
You mean that time Gundam tried something mildly different (same plot, but with kung fu supers instead of military grunts) the Otaku hated it because it wasn't the sameshit they wanted, and they never went back to anything remotely like it?
Sort of proves the rule, doesn't it?
It's a shame you can't always fight abandoned ships.
>the worlds most ambitious attempt to tell the same story as many times as they can while putting as little effort into it as possible
Excuse you. Marvel and DC have been at this for WAY longer.
