    Hi, I don’t know many people who have seen The Expanse, and I want to be able to talk to others about their thoughts about The Expanse, so if you’ve seen The Expanse, and or if you want to talk about it. Post here! 


    Who is you’re favorite Expanse character?
    if you have read the books, what is you’re favorite or favorite books?
    Who is you’re least favorite character?
    if you could be anyone in the expanse who would you want to be and why?

    FUN FACT: The Expanse is one of the closest sci-if tv shows, to what could actually happen in the future, and this has been talked about by physicists.

    I like it, it's one of my fav shows ever specially because of the bits of realism that they use, like the trajectories that they have to draw to go between planets and torpedo launches. However I stopped watching after Ghost Miller made Holden activate that weird thing in that weird planet that the belters were trying to colonize

    My favs characters: Draper and Chrisjen (love every time she curses lol)

    OMG Love the Expanse! I binged watched it after they released the whole season, especially because they took so long to release the last season. I love Draper, she totally rocks and knows both sides of the drama. But my favorite character is Amos. He is just so calm about everything. I liked the series so much I am planning on buying the books to read as they have more to them (they have novellas that go into more details). Great to know others have seen this series!!

    Yeah the Expanse totally rocked. Super gutted when it ended.

    My fave character is Camina Drummer. I was totally into the way the Belters looked and sounded in general and I loved how she could be this hard as nails space farer/colony head taken seriously with such a street appearance. I f**king loved that.

    P.S. cant wait to really forget it all so I can watch it again and I rarely do that

    Love the expanse, very sad that it ended.
    Wanted to see more of that kid that got revived in the last episodes in the one planet in one of yhe gate systems ...

    Favorite Character is Shamus (He gets the job done in his own way)
    Least favorite is Naomi (Too dramatic at times imo)

    I would like to be like Bobby (Draper), she is fearless and has morals. She is very tough.

    Thomas Jane is one of my favorite actors, and is the reason I started watching this show. Unfortunately, I don't remember much from it, and I don't think I made it to the end of season one. I remembering liking it, though, and I should definitely go back and finish it.

    Does it stay strong throughout the later seasons? Do they manage to keep Thomas Jane for the whole run, or do they do the big-name bait-and-switch we usually get with these shows (ie- put a well known actor in the first season, and then drop them for the remainder of the series)? There was a reason I stopped watching and I can't remember what it is, but I feel like someone told me Thomas Jane leaves the show.

    i love the series and i love good scifi stuff, so i can't say objectively if it stays strong. the good thing is that they already had a complete story to tell (from the books) so it was harder to screw up, i think.
    also i haven't yet watched the final season, but i'm sure i won't be disappointed.

    Thomas Jane does leave the show at some point. can't say more because there is a big spoiler risk.
    i missed Miller, that's for sure, but at that point the story was already one of the best thing i've ever seen so it didn't hurt too much.

    Where @Anarchia doesn't feel he can be objective because he loves sci-fi, I will say that's exactly the qualifications needed to make comment.

    YES it does stay strong. I have recently been binge watching sci fi box sets and have run out of stuff to watch now (which is why I just finished Babylon 5 AGAIN).

    So from Battlestar Galactica, to Altered Carbon, to Lost In Space, to Colony, to Electric Dreams to Counter Part to the Leftovers to Severance to so many more, including The Expanse I have watched a lot to judge by.

    Expanse is possibly my favourite sci-fi Box Set at the moment, I will be watching it a few times more over the next decade I am sure.

    So sure, I say set some time aside, preferably to binge watch a few episodes at a time. If you like your sci-fi dark and dangerous, you wont be disappointed. It's a great story set in believable future with believable, flawed characters. That's the backdrop - which is not to say it doesn't reach out and become a little far fetched at times. I should hope so - it wouldn't be sci-fi if it didn't.

    I just started watching this week finally! I binged season 1 and the first ep of season 2 cos the cliffhanger ending made me want to know more.

    My favourite character so far is Miller, he's like a noir detective in the future lol.

    My least favourite character so far is the main woman who we don't know if (she's an OPA terrorist or what her past is. It seems super dumb to me that nobody asked yet and they are just bouncing from crisis to crisis and they never found time to talk about it lol or take it seriously to roll around with a terrorist or) if they can trust her, but she just kinda keeps helping the team and they value her cooperation I guess. Also scary Amos for some reason will kill anyone who disagrees with her lol. It seems like something you would understand more from reading the books.

    One thing I have to say in season 1 it kinda felt like watching a school acting performance; you can tell the characters actions, reactions, and character development are 100% from a book - but the actors performance is slightly different delivery than the authors intent. It's almost like watching 2 stories at once and understanding them both, or poor acting?

    But now i already disagree with myself lol, Amos and Alex seems 100%, and Chrisjen too.

    haven't read the books, but later you'll get to know a lot more about Amos and he could become one of your favourite characters like he is for me xD
