      Great science in this fictional series

      Posted
      Moviewatcher

      The book series written by the duo of “James Corey” is fantastic science fiction, as it considers gravity and how water is obtained and food grown in order for humans to survive and expand into the solar system. Season follows most of the first book (currently seven books in the series) with some minor changes. The special effects are well done and space battle scenes engaging. The solar system is divided into three main groups, Earth, Mars, and the “Belters”. The Belters are a confederation of smaller colonies on asteroids and space stations. The main plot is based around a space crew trying to first solve a mystery on who destroyed their ship that leads to a larger problem with a dangerous science. The parallel main plot is of a burned out detective, trying to locate a missing person and how the actions of the space crew impact the solar system. A very entertaining and engaging first season.

      I was shopping for some sci-fi when I ran across this series. I had heard just a smattering of comments, so I took a chance and bought the DVD. Can't wait to get the second season. This is a realistic depiction of how space travel and life in space could be like. And more importantly, the science fiction is grounded in solid science, based on today's technology with some realistic extrapolations. Don't get me wrong, I'm also a fan of Star Trek, but no transporters here. Solid science and a realistic depiction of society and personalities

      Best Book to TV Adaptation

      Firstly - if you haven't read the books this TV Series is based on, I highly recommend doing so. One of the better SyFy productions in recent memory and faithfully does the book great service here. The production work, cast of actors, and writing are very well done. It was pleasant surprise to learn the books were being adapted to television and it was worth the wait. I cannot recommend this show enough. If you are a fan of the books, you'll love it. For non-readers of the series, there is plenty here for you as well, especially Sci-Fi fans of "Near Future"-type settings in Space. The story is centered around Humanities expansion into our own Solar System.

      Expansive Sci-Fi

      It's fun to finally see some great sci-fi coming from SyFy. Their last few shows have been a breath of fresh air, They are spending money on good effects as well and most importantly, on solid writers and actors who can deliver the goods. This is based on a series of books - think a mashup of elements of Dune, Game of Thrones and Outland. You get a lot of cool space battle action, some political intrigue from the different forces at play and a genuinely interesting space romp/mystery to unravel. Tone-wise it shares some DNA with Babylon 5 and Battlestar Galactica (The reboot) ... I recommend catching this if you have a chance!

      Excellent season; -2 stars for no iTunes

      Great purchase if you're a fan of the show's first season. I consider it a stand-alone miniseries; it's excellent. Watched it first via streaming. The Blu-Ray version is much higher quality. Also, watch/listen on your home sound system for all the low-end goodies, like the machinery around torpedo launches in the first 15 minutes of episode one. These things may be missed when watching on a device. -2 stars for no iTunes. Prefer an iTunes download, since UV and Flixster will not play on AppleTV Gen 3 & I am not willing to throw any more money at that streaming solution.

      The extra expense is worth it

      After reading many reviews and seeing the item, spending a little extra may help the operational longevity. It is the right size for my family, and hunting deep in to a chest is a thing of the past. I do want to get another large bin to help keep bagged veggies from sliding off. Note: The manufacturers instructions are a little odd as they have instructions for all versions. Be prepared to 'extract' what you need from the all-purpose booklet. Notably it says the adjustable legs are in the front. I could not adjust the plastic smooth feet in front.

      Best Science Fiction Series since BSG

      This series is a must watch for science fiction fans and anyone wanting a great story. Great actors, stunning production and visual effects, this show has it all. Very faithful to the books, the authors themselves are on the show's writing team. Best of all, there are six books in the series to date, so plenty of material for future seasons. Best Buy had the "best" price by far for this product, beating out online prices significantly. Happy binge watching and remember the Cant!

      Plausible Science + good cast = Great Series

      If you haven't read the books in the Expanse series, don't worry. The SyFy series is true to the storyline. The science is plausible -- it makes sense and doesn't rely on a large amount of science fiction mumbo jumbo. The cast is remarkably good, surprisingly so. The production values are better than I expected. And Shoreh Aglashdoo, as a senior UN official, is stunning. Just to hear her speak makes watching this series worthwhile.
