Dude, SyFy aint doing to shabby these days. I watch Dominion, thats good. And on Cliff's advice, watching Dark Matter, and it doesnt suck either.

I would take a pass on this......until I saw that the writers that did "Children of Men". I'll give this show a shot based on that alone.

Series premiere has been released early.

The Expanse

Looks like the new corporate model is to release these shows early on the web to create a buzz before the actual TV premiere.

SyFy has realized that their philosophy of airing B movies like Sharknado and imported crap isn't working so they are trying to get back to their SciFi roots with The Expanse, Childhood's End and The Magicians.

It will probably be like all good Sci Fi tv shows lately.
The networks air one season, then suddenly cancel the series for no good reason, leaving the storyline unfinished and all the viewers hanging.

This is why I usually watch older shows that have run their course. Get them on Blu-Ray.

Watched the premiere. A bit of overacting but that's to be expected in a premiere. Interesting camera work. I wonder how they did the zero G scenes?

Too soon to tell if this show will catch on. It was a little A to B to C in plot and it's too early to care about the characters.

Action starts towards the end of the episode.

enjoyed the first episode. Don't quite get why people are saying it is the next battlestar galactica. Very different feel.

2nd episode had some character and plot development.

There are four episodes out online. Trying to resist watching episode 3 until next week. Probably will watch now.

First episode done. I'm hooked. Syfy is getting GOOD.

Also, I really didnt catch too much overacting. Everyone seemed to be legit putting in a lot of effort. Great cinematography.

I'm 2 episodes deep, and I think it's good enough to watch.

Dunno what it was about the second episode, but it annoyed the fuck out of me. I couldnt hear half the dialogue compared to ep1, the writing fell really fat and it just dragged.

That aside, the concept and character still interest me so I'm still definitely into it.

I got through all 4, and I'm on board for the rest of the season.
