I only saw the first episode, how are the rest?
Mostly Hard Science fiction, takes place solely on the solar system. Mars, Earth, and the Belt are all at odds with each other, and there are two major story threads, a detective looking for a missing rich girl slumming in the belt, and some crew from a ice hauler.
Anything more would be a spoiler.
Halfway into the first episode. Good shit so far.
They just received that distress signal and ignored it. Feels ominous as fuck.
Interesting characters, good atmosphere, scifi that isn't too 'out there'. Also the birth defects thing from being born in space is a great touch.
I'm getting a nice Battlestar Galactica sort of vibe from it.
Then you are in good shape.
Some people don't like episode 2, but Episode 3 and beyond you should love. And after watching the later episodes and re-watching 2 I learned to really like it.
Syfy cleared up something that was dicussed in the threads.,,,
Uncle Mateo removes a malfunctioning sensor wire in his helmet. He lifts his visor, exposing his face to the vacuum of space. He then exhales slowly to prevent embolism, then re-locks his visor and finally inhales.
Indeed, I just wanted to add that the producers also clarified it.
Also they in the script wrote the belter ship should be a "Winnebago in space" - and I thought of spaceballs.
>wasting water rightfully belonging to mars terraforming efforts
A man's gotta stand up
>watching The Expanse
>see commercial for Little People, Big World
>think of Earthlet scum
And specially fuck the OPA
Who /Rocinante/ here?
I am still posting sound webms over on WSG
Yes, it based off a small passage in the book.
producers wanted to show that the belt can use rocks as weapons
/mars/ and /mormon/ here lol
I got that reference!!!
Though to be fair, that is I think the smallest military ship we have seen.
>just finished the first episode
the pirate missles miss the ship and nuke the shit out of the Canter
>Hey, heres this awesome space freighter with an interesting, likable crew to get to know. Looks awesome right?
Well fuck you too, show.
It ebbs and flows. Episodes 1 and 2 are fairly slow, ish. Then 3 and 4 get pretty crazy. Now 5 and 6 have been pretty chill again, but it looks like 7-10 are going to be serious.
So that were the meme started...
It really is. Makes me want to hire that artist to do some space RPG work.
>size does matter
Except it doesn't, because wouldn't the Donnager massacre every other ship in that pic combined?
>the Nauvoo is much bigger than the space station it's being constructed on
It why mars is the place to be.
I am sure I would have the luck of going to Eros on vacation at the wrong time.
Yeah, I'm never doing that again either.
The problem seems trivial to compensate for as long as all the toilets/urinals are oriented correctly.
Don't forget that you can't leave the belt. Anything above the moon/mars gravity will kill you.
>Latest reality TV in the expanse. launch 100 people on basic to ceres and watch them struggle to survive.
I could only understand if I was to join up with my waifu. Which would be bad for Alexis Bledel.
This is by far best representation of how could real future look alike, only thing is , we need at least 1000 years to even hope of something like that.
People who will live in that period will look at us as we look at Roman Empire...
Makes you wonder ..
One of the few shows I actually look forward to. Like shit, can it be next week already? There's not leaked episodes, are there?
>tfw my other guilty pleasure is
tfw I watch it with by best friend/roommate. N-no homo
So, I watched the first episode and thought it was interesting. My one issue is the look. Everything looked like the contrast was turned up a little too much, is that a constant aesthetic choice or can we just put it down to a cheaply made pilot?
Plenty of webms have been made to see if it too contrasty for you. Whole thread on wsg
>samefagging your thread and pretending u'r some meme master
I actually started that thread and did not make any of the replies, but I do think that some other singular asshole made each and every single one of them and I don't really understand why.
I just found out that Beltfu got very, very, very lewd
One last bump before going to bed.
