The Expanse (TV series)

A Legitimate Salvage 2

"Remember the Cant" and "CQB"

DEBATE: Which of our detectives on Ceres is becoming an interesting character, and does that mean decreased job security and/or lifespan? Is James Holden becoming James Holden, or is he just Forrest Gump? We get to know what increasingly resembles a core group of characters, and a Legitimate Salvage is properly salvaged.

A Legitimate Salvage 1

"Dulcinea" and "The Big Empty"

Our three-season rewatch of THE EXPANSE begins! Do our lead characters resemble the characters they will become three years from now? Who should be the captain anyway? How do we feel about Detective Joe Miller? What about Amos’s get-to-know-me conversational acumen? Have a listen and enjoy—but jump off at the spoiler break at 39:30 if you’re watching for the first time!

Coming Soon: A Legitimate Salvage

Coming soon to The Incomparable Network, four Doctor Who nerds embark on a tour of Mars, the Belt, and Earth for a rewatch of their second favorite thing in the universe(*), The Expanse. Each podcast will cover two episodes of The Expanse all the way up to the season four debut in December.

(*) The Expanse may not in fact be their collective second favorite thing in the universe but hey look, now we sneaked in a Babylon 5 reference as well.

Weird Alien Jiminy Cricket

Thanks to Amazon, this most recent season of “The Expanse” won’t be the last! The show has been saved, and it’s a good thing, because we really enjoyed season 3. In this episode, we discuss how the show’s producers made some clever diversions from their source material, space spies, hallucinatory cops with hallucinatory hats, David Strathairn’s amazing Belter accent, amoral fathers and the rage-monster daughters who love them, and the plethora of stolen spaceships that populate the solar system.

The Expanse: S1E5-8 review

We’re back with a review of episodes 5-8 of “The Expanse,” leading up to the two-hour finale. From Earth to Ceres to the Rocinante, we’ve got our take on the misadventures of Holden and crew, Miller’s laconic interactions with Jared Harris and the rest of his space mob, and Avasarala’s snowy conversation with one of Holden’s parents. Plus, is the blue goo at the heart of the series realized effectively?
