I mentioned earlier this year how I keep checking in on new sci-fi shows, hoping to finally get something that I really want to watch, and so far I keep getting disappointed after a couple of episodes. My latest attempt at watching a new sci-fi series is The Expanse, which at least has the pedigree of being based on a series of books that people seem to love (I haven’t read any of them). I’ve watched the first 2 episodes that have aired, and although I can’t say that I’m blown away by anything, I am appreciating the setting and look of the show, and you do get the feeling that a lot of thought went into producing it. I’m also getting a Babylon 5 vibe from it, which I like. And the way episode 2 ended, it really made me want to watch episode 3, to see what this Mars faction is like.
