    For the first time I wished I hadn't read the books, knowing in advance how that would end.

    Interesting that they're trying to get 2 books worth into one series, this episode was like a mini reset. Moving all the pieces to where they'd need to be for the next plot very quickly.

    So looks like they end at the conclusion of Abaddon's Gate for this season.

    Yeah, but it ended as though they already knew syfy and pulled the plug and they weren't sure if someone else would pick it up.

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

    Enjoyed this season more than previous ones. Amazon acquiring it seems likely to make the production values (mostly in terms of directing, not sfx) go up. Also think the next book might be a little boring or unworkable in terms of making it seem interesting. We'll see where they take it.

    If they just skip the slug book and move on to the next one, they won't lose much...

    Just in case anyone hasn't noticed, all three seasons are now on Amazon Prime in the UK. So glad to finally see Season 3 over here after it never made it to Netflix. (Although I did buy all 3 seasons on region free Blu-ray when I went to America over Xmas).

    Many thanks. I've just found this thread ,thanks to the new posting. Great to see a "new" Sci-Fi series reach season four, though touch and go (and a long way to go to overtake Stargate.)

    I'm a fan of most things Sci-Fi and have been missing this series... Nice to read the recommendations here. Just seen series 1 episode one and I'm probably hooked for the duration

    I happen to be on a free month with Amazon Prime thanks to their pestering and the Yes/No buttons on my tablet being so close, that I hit the wrong one! One click to sign up and about five to say that I really really didn't intend to!?! (Very annoyed about the way they handle that) Now after all that, I may have to pay up to see all the episodes, not being a binge watch person. Ho hum.
