I hear he's got a good right hook.
From an earlier thread
In the books
he's from Baltimore, whores are worked till they get knocked up, then they charge extra to folks who want to fuck a woman who is pregnant since that is kink. Kid is born and they are illegal, and thus are pimped out. Some escape to orbit, many don't.
Started the book a bit I laughed at how the invented their fancy space drive
the inventor attached it to his yacht which blasted him into orbit, fortunately he left the plans on his desktop
Would it really hurt if he were?
Yeah. I was getting into "Into the Badlands" but was like, meh. Then I came across this and was like, Oh SHi... I was a fan of BSG and nothing on Siffy since they changed their name. Siffy.
It was a risky show. Sci-fi figured out b movies weren't doing it so they kinda shotgun effect a bunch of shows out there to see what sticks. This got renewed so I imagine it will look better next season.
They avoided using special effects as much but they weren't all that bad. There's less going on in this frame than in a typical Expanse space action scene, but the visuals are similarly realistic.
Anyone /unclemateo/ here?
Episode starts in about 15 mins
Space yacht, anon. He didn't attach it to a boat planetside and blast himself into orbit, he built the drive into his spaceship and turned it on without really sorting out how to throttle it down or turn it off. Blasted himself up to 5% the speed of light, acceleration killed him.
Dumb, incredibly cocky thing to do, but really what else could you expect
from a Martian?
i can't possibly handle that kind of responsibility desu anon
That was a long opening sequence.
lets see how they treat traitors
ok, my only gripe about this show is queen poo in the loo's voice. did she have throat cancer before? can someone offer her a lozenge? she makes james earl ray seem like he had his nuts cut off as an teen
This has been a surprisingly good episode so far.
Because he loves to rush head first into danger with guns and isn't the focus.
Kind of sad, I like him more than the others but he is asking for it.
Kinda. It doesn't scream action but does set up the next few episodes. You wouldn't understand Amos as well, or his relationship with Holden if it weren't for this one. I want more episode 4's.
episode was pretty meh, first one I've watched live and not on syfy.com though, so it might have been all the erectile dysfunction commercials that killed it for me. I really hope they get some other sponsors.
It was setting up for a big next episode, which will be a episode 4 type episode to get all that was shown in the preview.
Most likely it was designed to be a cheap episode as all episodes from here on will be costly.
I really think that the next episode will be a big one for the unspoiled viewers.
get inside a stealth ship, Miller at Eros, The Hotel Shootout, and Finding Julie
The Pacific $20 million a Episode
Band of Brothers 12.5 Million
Game of Thrones 8 million
Spartacus 6 million
The Expanse 5 million
Star Trek TNG and DS9 - 2 million a episode (1990s money)
Babylon 5 - $500 a Episode (1990s money)
Of course, Episode 4 cost a lot more then this last episode.
well GOT is now up to 8 million, the cost per episode has gone up.
The main cost of the expanse is the VFX shots. One reason why Babylon 5 was so inexpensive is that they use 1990s Amega PCs to make the VFX.
the only thing I can think of if that's accurate ( which I still don't see a source on ) is they are factoring in website costs and advertising that are tied to the show for the overall seasons budget
I get that sense too, that the total budget is 50-60 million and another 50-60 million for next year.
Science fiction is expensive. Until band of brothers and friends, the most expensive show on TV was TNG and DS9.
Google "The Expanse" and 5 million a episode you will find plenty of hits.
Walking dead is about 3.5 million a episode.
I should have gotten it sooner with the scanning eye and the voice but I have such a disconnect with Adam and his va
I hope when they get into corporate side of things, we get a sarif. Now that is an iconic guy
