      Horrible changes to the writing

      Posted
      Moviewatcher

      The second season makes significant changes from the second book, that is really irritating. The show producers and writers made several bad decisions in changing the characters’ chemistry, teamwork, and trust. Season 2 completes the first book and carries through most of the second book (currently seven books in the series by James Corey). The original books are well written and it makes no sense for the tv show to make drastic changes. One bad tv series change is having Avasarala best friends with Errinwright. In the book they are rivals and having them friends results in the tv show writers have to make additional changes in Season 3 to keep the main plot going. Another bad tv series change is that they wasted their budget in a Martian marine squad training sequence, which did not exist in the book. The money spent on the CGI would have been better spent in following the second book and the opening Martian marine battle scene with 20+ marines and a battle mech, not just four marines shown in the tv series. A complete let down, along with the massive space battle that ended up being a short 10 second sequence. For some reason, the producers and writers decided to deviate from the books and add their very bad spin to the series. This resulted in a disjointed story that dragged on with side characters, rather than the main plot. Have been watching Season 3 on tv and understand why SyFy decided to cancel the tv series. Amazon will be taking over Season 4, but hopefully with new producers and writers who will follow the book series more closely, and prioritize the budget for exciting scenes that advance the plot, rather than “look cool”. This is the only way to "save" the Expanse series. Sadly, the pacing, action, and storytelling went down the tubes in Season 2 and further down the septic tank in Season 3. Am glad to have read all seven books that have been published to date, rather than watching season 3. Season started good but became a let-down in the 2nd half of season 2. Season 1 however, was fantastic.

      If you haven't seen the show, and you're checking out reviews to see if it's worth it, just buy the series so far!! Love this series. The books are great, but they do a great job on the series. After I watched SSN 1, Ep1, I was hooked, and watched 5 more in a row. Season 2 just gets better. One of my favorite Sci-Fi series. Acting is well done, and special effects are awesome! Well done! Just don't cancel it now please, SyFy, as you have a horrible history of doing.

      Earth, Mars and The Belters are at each others throats' while all the time the proto-molecule and those who are trying exploit it are the real enemy The story winds it's way towards a dark future if the Three sides don't come together Well told and well shot storyline

      This new TV series has a real, gritty feel to how settlement in Space may work out. The added challenge of a very different type of life form from the usual SciFy alien is a nice twist. The 2d season is not quite as good as the first, but still very good.

      If you enjoyed season 1, this is a no-brainer. The story and attention to detail in the writing continues to impress. It's also visually beautiful-- if you watch on a home theater it's definitely worth the upgrade from streaming to go with blue ray.

      I chanced upon a random episode of season one, and found it very intriguing. I ended up purchasing season one so I could watch them in order. I watched season 2 as it aired but bought the discs so I can watch it when I want.

      Season 2 starts out slow with divergent story lines. By the middle of the season, the story lines start to come together. By the end of season 2, they bring everything together. Season 2 is as enjoyable as season 1.

      Not my cup of tea but not bad. In this series I fail to really connect to the characters. I'm not sure why this series fails to reach me but I'm certain that there are others that it will reach.
