I have a confession to make, I have not read any book in The Expanse series. I am an avid book reader, and I run my own book blog. I can read just about anything but science fiction, and nonfiction books. I can’t give a reason for not reading too much science fiction, other than it just doesn’t resonate with me.
My point is this, while I am not what some would consider an expert in this genre, I do know a good TV show when I see it. One episode in and The Expanse is just that, and more. Since this post is meant to be a preview only, I won’t go into detail, and spoil it for the rest of you.
Hopefully, most SYFY fans have watched the first episode, Dulcinea by now, and are completely hooked. I saw some very familiar faces from television shows, and the movies.Thomas Jane was just but one of those familiar faces. I believe you will recognize Nora from Being Human (USA) and Tyrese (Chad L. Coleman) from The Walking Dead.
I have watched the first episode twice already, and I will be watching it a few more times. I know a show is really good, when I want to watch it straight away, after the first viewing. The episode looked so much better on my big screen TV versus my Kindle screen! The Expanse is intriguing, with the suspenseful, mysterious disappearance of a very powerful persons daughter. I think with what we have seen so far, the first season of The Expanse will be epic!
