What happened to the forum for...?
The guys mentioned covering season 3 in March. Should I try and catch up?
I'm at the tail end of S1, mostly based on
endorsement. Parts of it are really good, but I think it suffers from lack of star power (like The Man in the High Castle). Plot is good, universe is solid, but it is a little slow at times. There can be a lack of urgency.
I'd be patient with it. It's gotten good reviews, but not a lot of pub.
I'm only thinking of catching up because they are going to be covering it
It's fantastic. Slow at first though.
After the first third of the second season it really takes off. The first season can seem aimless BUT it lays the critical groundwork.
It's rare that I scream at a show for a character to do something. I think Game of Thrones is the only other one, with Tyrion? But yeah, The Expanse had one such moment, and I love that character.

I agree first season is a slow build with a lot of world building but flies midway to the end. Second season is pure fire. I loved the first season so much I read the first two books between season one and two and read the third book in between two and the upcoming three. I also read all the novellas up to the timeline of book 3. I'm an addict now.
I liked pretty much the whole thing from the start.
So finally got into it. And yea, episode 4-5 is where it clicks and then they hammer you with episode 6 on some emotional shit. “You know it’s possible to cry so hard your tears turn into blood..”
definitely all in and hope to catch up before season 4 comes so I’m up to speed with everyone elseZ
