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

    I gave up on Westworld mid season 1 - it just didn't grab me.

    Loving The Expanse though - ep4 was great, albeit a little disturbing at the end!

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

    Gave up westworld at end of season 1; must say I'm not especially gripped by the storytelling so far, I just can't shake the way it went down in the books unfortunately and it's colouring my whole experience, I'm feeling a sort of referred emotions because it's reminding me of the characters from the book and the relationships I've developed with them over 7 books now but maybe that's taking away from the actual show itself. I'll keep going.

    It's probably too expensive for Sy-Fy to fund now it's got so popular. Sy-Fy can't afford to big budget stuff i dont think, so maybe its better if gets picked up by another channel or Netflix etc at least that's the hope I presume. It could of course end up like Firefly and be dumped with no one willing to take a gamble.

    Ars basically says that SyFy didn't have streaming rights for a show with an audience that wanted to watch digitally.

    So Bezos could end up with rights for the Expanse and an actual rocket company. There must be room for some tie-ins there

    I'm surprised Elon Musk hasn't bought it.
