Oh yeah, I couldn't get enough of the show!  After the end of the last episode, my HOPE is that they are able to continue to story.  I want to see where the rest of the Marco's plot goes.  How closely it does follow the books.  

Never read the books. Just enjoying the show. 

 

From a very early ago (young teenager) I changed my perspective when it came to shows and movies.  Before then,  I like most people, would be overly critical of anything I watch.   I learned not to buy the hype of any advertising/trailers. 

Then I asked myself. What is the main reason for shows and movies? To be entertained. That's it.  Being overly critical just takes away from enjoying the show movie.  

Yes, it's easy to be critical of a transformers movie, as their plots leave a lot to be desired.  Yet, I still find them entertaining. Pacific Rim (the first one) was easy to just check the brain at the door, and be entertained.  

Anyways, I really didn't intent to go down this rabbit hole.  My point is, most shows that people are critical of, I still find enjoyable. 

I.E. Waterworld. 

I am not a Kevin Costner fan. He is full of himself, and not nearly the actor he thinks of himself to be.  He's in a lot of good movies, so I've had to watch him way more than I care to. Plus the movie bombed at the box office, Not covering the cost of production. 

Yet I thoroughly enjoy the movie. In fact, any time it's on, I'll watch it if I have the time. It just one of those movies for.me. 5th element is another.  Neither movie would I put in my favorite movies of all times, I just find them fun to watch. 

The Expense is very easy to sit down with, and enjoy. It strums my Sci fi strings very well.

Me either.  I just fell down a wiki rabbit hole trying to learn more about the world of The Expanse!

And the first Pacific Rim is a classic.  Straight cheese!  But just so wonderful and filling.  I love watching that movie, warts and all!  Makes me want to fire it up tomorrow.  Except I'll be checking out the new Kaiju movie 😃

Well Said and totally agree, I will always watch waterward if its on, at the very least its Original and Originality is something lacking in movies today, fifth element same. Just good fun 

I also love the Riddick trilogy, great mix of sci fi / action, love the character. 

I will only turn something off  if I'm not being entertained, then off it goes and I will find something else to entertain me for x amount of time.

While Aristotle had a major point that plot was the most important aspect of a dramatic work, we've kind of hit a point where a lot of stories are just samey.  I love a fun sci-fi story.  It's good ole comfort food.

Riddick's movies where silly and over the top.  Space Opera? Yeah, not for everyone, but if you are into that, they hit the spot.

The Expanse really hit the mark on a crew based show of some outlaws that I've missed since Firefly was canceled.  I love this kind of niche genre based stuff.  It doesn't all have to be billion dollar disney stuff.

    • I think there's a lot of truth here, but I will say something that may not be popular. I think Cam was a good QB that had could have been great. The GM never did enough to protect his blind side, but Cam never did enough to consistently fix his weaknesses as far as inconsistent mechanics, holding on to the ball too long, and simply consistent solid decision making. I don't know how much of the blame goes to the GM and unimaginative, old school OCs and an an HC, and how much of the blame was Cam's. But, it was a combination. Hell, they even drafted twin towers to help Cam out, but then they never got him an exclamation point at LT. Cam had great moments here--piercing that skin of the elite, but he never completely punched through. And, he is running out of time to get it done. I think this season will be his last opportunity (and I am rooting for him, unless we somehow get in the way).  I say all this because Luke was truly a great MLB. His elite play and consistency was rock solid! I think Luke was a greater LB than Cam has been a QB. I will admit that it's more difficult to be a great QB, but I don't believe that Cam and Luke should always be necessarily linked as the the main reasons why we were semi-successful during the Rivera era. I believe that Cam was an imperfect cracked wooden crutch that also held us back in some respects, while Luke was made of strong aluminum alloy that we could always depend on to get the job done. Just an observation and attempt at an objective opinion based over a period of time. It's my take and I'm sticking to it.
    • Seeing Brandon Beane in the top 5 of GM's that are drafting makes me die inside. fug JR, Bean would have been amazing here. Sigh. 
    • I mean it's the same for any of these professional talking head analysts.  Jeremiah, Brooks etc would all fail as GMs. That's why they're talking heads rather than in actual Front Offices.
