    I've had it on my Netflix Watchlist for a while. Will definitely get around to this in Feb / March. Lots of good vibes here.

    Looks like only Season 1 is on Netflix currently though. Where are you all watching Season 2 from ?

    Not from legal sources if in the UK I would imagine as there's no UK release date for Season 2 yet. Sy-Fy in the US has started airing it though.

    For the first time ever I'm the guy who read the source material and thought it was exccellent, and that while the tv show was entertaining, I thought it was awfully directed, and the plot confusing (though that may be in part because it's deviating significantly from the books)

    Re: The Expanse - best hard sci fi show in years!!

    Bleh. I don't know how much my enjoyment of this is coloured by having read the books - enjoyed season 1, then read the books, and now not enjoying season 2 - but it's not satisfying to me. It's not that it's deviating from the source material, it's that the storytelling has me confused and disinterested. The storyline we're on now should be (spoiler alert) coming to a mighty crescendo around now, in a 'oh my god i thought this was all wrapped up and then KABLAM OH MY GOD WTF WOW' kinda way, but i'm distracted and dissatisfied. Doesn't mean I'll stop watching, of course, on balance I'm enjoying it, I just know I could be enjoying it more.

    My mate who read the books is enjoying the series,so I don't think reading the books does not mean you won't enjoy it.

    Has S2 come to the UK yet? Binged on S1 on Netflix, thoroughly enjoyed it and am looking forward to more. Excellent cast, really good script and plot.

    Yeah excellent episode, best of the show so far. Straight to Ganymede now, can't remember if anything else needs wrapping up? All things considered I guess having Avasarala come in from the start rather than S2 was pretty important

    Defiantly a very good show, I hope the story arc keeps at the same pace and does not slow down like in most shows.

    Dark Matter is another very good show!

    Oh, it won't. I'm up to date with the books, and I can tell you, it's a wild ride.
