A Legitimate Salvage 2
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.

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.
We’re back to wrap up season 2 of the Expanse! Action on Earth, Ganymede, and more! Blue monsters! Changes from the books! Overall, our panel really liked the trajectory of the back half of season 2. We can’t wait for season 3… but alas, we’ll have to.
We’re back with a check-in on the midpoint of season 2 of The Expanse! How did the big climax fit in the middle of a season? What might be coming next? Why are we excited to see Jared Harris?

Scurrying from rotating work schedules and expanding projects, John E.O. Stevens, Jeff Patterson and Fred Kiesche convene in the tubes that make up the internet as well as the tubes that make up Ceres Station to discuss the second season of The Expanse, Lois McMaster Bujold, hermetic poetry and more!

The Expanse is back and so is our review of the first two episodes of season two! Book comparisons, space politics, and sudden murders!
The first season of “The Expanse” wraps up with an exciting conclusion! Except for some of the parts that were less exciting. We render our final verdict and look ahead to season two.
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?
Our panel reconvenes to discuss the three most recent episodes of SyFy’s “The Expanse.” How’s the pacing? What’s the deal with the CGI animals and shots that go through air vents? And how does the show portray the balance of power between Earth, Mars, and the Belt?
We discuss the first episode of “The Expanse,” which has premiered online and arrives on Syfy Dec. 14. In the first section of the show we discuss the first episode and some of our expectations as readers of the books on which the show is based, but we hold off on spoilers for the rest of the series until after firing the Spoiler Horn.
