What is it with new shows suddenly dropping 4 episodes? It happened with The Expanse too.
Also this show seems alright, although its impossible to find a non cringy picture.
I really believe that it is intended to harm the viewer count numbers so that there is an excuse to cancel the shows.
Even the wikipage for the The Expanse no longer shows the release dates of the online versions. Hell, they even released one episode OUT OF ORDER from the rest of the episodes. How retarded can they be to fuck up that bad?
>and some of those people leak them.
They are not leaked. They are available on their websites. Just watch them here:
Episodes 3 and 4 of the Shannara chronicles won't be released until Jan 12th and Jan 19th, but are on their website already.
Yes. They can recoup more money in the long run for big losses. It is a Jewish thing, no /pol/. Not only that, but it helps get rid of people they don't like depending on how the contracts are setup. It is a real dog-eat-dog place to work.
>How retarded can they be to fuck up that bad?
They didn't fuck up. Showing episodes out of order is an old tactic to suppress numbers and kill a show faster once it's decided to not be picked up or renewed.
That's why Firefly was shown out of order.
So a lack of air dates, along with the shuffled order is a death knell for The Expanse....
which we all knew would be shit anyway.
Sci-fi has been bad in film and television for over a decade now
If they made something interesting it might work. Hell, why don't they just adapt a Philip K Dick story like they used to in the past
I don't even know why there's still broadcast tv any more. They all need to close down that shit and move online to on-demand releases. They'd have more viewers in the long run and more advertising revenue.
I know more people that watch movies and tv shows on their smartphones and laptops than people who even own any kind or tv or have any kind or broadcast tv access.
>Also this show seems alright
Is it really? I didn't even give it a try because I was certain it would be crap.
Pretty much all of it is quite good except that the acting from the three too-young leads would make even experienced CW network execs blush with embarrassment.
Poor John Rhys Davies. You can see him dying inside ever time he shares a scene with one of them. His old LOTR buddy Ian McKellen would weep if asked to do so and demand to be stuck in front of a green screen again.
its nothing amazing yet and it probably wont be, but its certainly watchable.
Its just full of little things like everyone and everything being super clean, everyone looking 18 and like a model, sometimes really cringy background music, "this isnt a movie" type of sarcasm etc.

Yeah, bro, solid 6/10s all around. It is amazing what a cake layer of makeup can do for a person.
They know people like to marathon/binge multiple episodes at once these days. While they're not going to pull a Netflix and start dropping whole seasons simultaneously, they know there's benefit to letting people get a taste for more than just the pilot episode.
Dialogue, world, plot, it's all garbage.
Strong womyn out the ass.
Actors are largely decent, despite blatantly being picked for their looks, the exception is the rover girl who is a horrid actor.
It's become a bit of a thing for shows to have a chunk of episodes be available online for people to binge watch them which gets more people to watch the show apparently. Networks are trying to get people to subcribe to their streaming services in order to compete with Netflix so they're not just going to be looking at television numbers, but also website streams.
Not sure on other shows but the Expanse has a legit excuse for this: worldbuilding.
The books have a pretty complex setting that's integral to the plot, you can't just forget who is with what faction or what the factions are doing and still keep up with the plot.
So in that case, it makes sense to release the first four episodes for worldbuilding purposes and to truly hook audiences. SyFy is trying to blend the "binge watching" experience with normal television by hooking viewers with a "mini binge" and then hoping they'll stick around for episodic television.
Not sure if it'll work though. This kind of ambition in a show, if the books' scope and the first few episodes' large (for SyFy) budget are any indication, is rarely seen outside of HBO or Netflix. Translating this kind of storytelling with this kind of budget to basic cable might be rough.
Mad Men, Breaking Bad, and even the Walking Dead all have the advantage of using real life for a setting. The Expanse has to build and CGI every set, no location scouting for them. Even Game of Thrones gets a break on this while the Expanse's claustrophobic stations and ships all need the set and CGI treatment.
I really hope it works out, as I'm a fan of the show and books, but I'm doubtful. If SyFy sticks to the old Nielsen system and flubs like it has, the show is going to die.
STOP COMPARING BOOKS AND MOVIES. YOU ABSOLUTE FUCKING RETARD. THEY'RE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT MEDIUMS OF ART. READ THE BOOK, WATCH THE FILM, ENJOY EACH SEPARATELY.
>OH THE BOOK WAS BETTER THAN THE FILM
NO. THE BOOK WAS BETTER/WORSE THAN OTHER BOOKS YOU HAVE READ, AND THE FILM WAS BETTER/WORSE THAN OTHER FILMS YOU'VE SEEN
ivana baquero is really enticing in this.
