    Bland script writing ruins the series

    Posted

    Lousy bland Hollywood script writing has ruined a fantastic science fiction book series (have read all seven books published so far). Sadly, the only way to save the Expanse series is to replace the director, produce, and script writers with a new team who can follow the book series. The special effects are well done, but wasted in background scenes, rather than main plot scenes or action sequences. The main plot is that humans have expanded across the solar system and divided into three main factors. Earth is overcrowded but still has the largest space fleet and corporations. An independent Mars is trying to terra form the planet but has a more advanced space fleet than Earth. The third faction are the Belters, who are the humans living and working in lower gravity space stations and colonies. In Season 3 an independent crew is caught between all three factions after an Earth corporation unleashed a biological science experiment that killed and transformed tens of thousands of Belters. This season starts part way through the second book and crams the third book into the second half of the season. --- Spoiler alert --- An example of how the script writers messed up is the final episode that has Martian Marines fighting against the independent crew. In the book, the Martian Marines join the crew against a rogue Belter and his Earth supporters. This is a huge change from the book and significant plot mess. Another example is how the tv script had Clarissa Mao killing a family friend. In the book, the person is a life long family friend who helps convert Clarissa from her path of revenge and eventually helps the independent crew. Instead, we have an illogical sudden conversion of Clarissa, along with a missed battle between her and Amos (one of the independent crew). This is a big point in the book series, as it plays out in later books. A third example is how the tv show splits up the independent crew in season three. The break up doesn’t occur until later in the book series. Again, a huge mess to clean up in character development and plot. --- End spoilers --- The third book describes a lot of the science involved in travelling in space and creating life support. The tv series did not portray it fully, but wasted their budget on background computer graphics scenes, rather than more exciting action scenes. Am hoping that Amazon’s producer and writers for Season 4 are a different team and have learned from the mistakes made in Seasons 2 and 3. Follow the well written books, rather than bland stereo-typical Hollywood writing.

    I have been a huge fan of the expanse since it first aired. Have bought every season when on blu ray. I love that the seasons come with digital copies. I watch a lot of shows movies when I'm not at home. The price is always worth it to me when they come with digital. Season 3 for some reason didn't give a digital copy this time. Why not?? I think syfy just wanted to be done with the show and let amazon deal with it. Only good thing was we got some special features on this blu Ray set. I just don't like the idea of having to purchase the show again if I want digital. I will have to wait for a good price to buy it again. No ditial copy was the only downside to this season. Still love the show!!

    This show is very addicting. When I watched season one, I thought it was like Babylon 5. Turns out this show is better. Hopefully Syfy won't cancel this show like how they cancel other terrific shows. Thank you Best Buy for carrying these shows on bluray so I can enjoy and binge watch without commercials. My Sci-fi collection is building thanks to Best Buy.

    I's give this 4.5 actually. I didn't like this season as much as the first two, but only by a small factor. This idea may be running out of steam... not sure if there is even going to be a Season 4. Too bad though, they should just regroup and give it a go as the theme/topic/local are ripe for more development.

    Yes, it takes awhile to follow what's happening in the first season but once you get to know who is who it all makes sense. The writing is way above most things on TV and the quality of the picture is amazing on blu ray. A must see for all syfy geeks!

    The most engaging sci-fi shows in years, I really couldn't wait for this season because a lot of interesting things are going on. Well worth the money to buy this show if you do enjoy it and enjoy the other the other seasons

    The Best season yet. IMO the best sci-fi TV show since the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica. Too bad it's the last season on the Sci-FI channel. Bought by Amazon so it's not exactly the end...

    This is still one of the best sci-fi shows currently on the air. It's a linear story, not episodic so it needs to be viewed in sequential order to fully enjoy and understand.
