This isn’t movie-related, but tonight I finished the SyFy network show The Expanse, which premiered a ten-episode season at the beginning of this year. Season 2 doesn’t come out until January 2017. The futuristic story about Earth and colonies on Mars and asteroid belt workers can be hard to follow, but that’s preferable to being simplistic or spelling things out too much. It took me a while to become attached to the characters, who initially had a habit of dying off quickly, but by the end of the season I was pretty invested in Thomas Jane’s noir detective character and Dominique Tipper’s engineer/possible ex-terrorist character.
The show is based on a book series, and it’s gotten good critical feedback. Fans of smart, mysterious, complex sci-fi should check it out!
