So, I couldn't wait another year to continue the story where we left at the end of Season 3 and got books 4-7. Couple of questions:
- Are books 1-3 different enough to go back and read? From Jim's comments, Book 3 - Abaddon's Gate feels worthy, because there is substantial differences, even though it ends up with the same result.
- Are the novella's worth my time? I'm definitely going to read The Churn, because everyone talks about that one. But I don't know much about the others.
- Anyone interested in a BM Book Club here on the forums? I just finished Book 4 and would love to chat with some Bald Movers about it. The epilogue was a sick tease.

To all Bald Move Beltalowdas: Just want to publicly admit that I was wrong about The Expanse. I tried 3 times to watch Season 1, and I never could get past episode 5. It just seemed too "murder mystery in space" cliche, and frankly, I couldn't get past my irrational hatred of Thomas Jane (I won't go into details). There has never been a show that so many in the Bald Move community love, that I did not. And I just couldn't understand it. So I stuck with Season 3 this year, mainly so I could enjoy & understand the podcast, and hoped I could derive what the love was all about. Right around episode 3.04, it started to really sink in - the appeal of the show. I started connecting with some of the characters, and finally saw how different their portrayal of life in space really was. So in parallel to watching S3, I watched Season 2 (which was f'ing fantastic). After I finished that, I watched Season 1. Yeah, it's a totally ass-backwards way to watch the show, but man, I really love The Expanse now. And Season 3 has been so rewarding. I'm still not ready to say this show is better than BSG, but I'm en route. Thanks for steering my ship into the ring.
