It wouldn't take much, IMO, to make a series-ender that's both true to the books and that allows for the vast possibilities of the future from there. And Book Three would make a great movie. :D

I want The Expanse to never end. At the same I consider it a miracle that it exists at all, let alone that it could go three seasons.

There is a sense in which the first two books form a unit that...

I'm sure you'll be happy with the Sony. For the record, if your firmware is updated, you should be able to do the same on your XB1.

My XBox One S now (with the latest firmware) has menu option to allow the receiver to decode Blu-ray audio. With the option checked, I was getting Atmos or DTS MA on my Denon. Otherwise, by default...

No Sound at All

I have an AVR-920W purchased as a refurb from A4L last October. It has been working flawlessly and I've been happy with it.

Today, with no warning, with the AVR already on and previously working,...

I'm not sure "divergence" is the concept I would invoke. So far, they seem to be taking occasional shortcuts, leaving some things out as they get to the same destinations.

There's a certain thing...

If there's a spectrum, TE is at the opposite end from True Blood, which not only diverged significantly from the source material but which invented a whole other way to be awful.

I disagree. The unexplained elements from the book -- the protomolecule and the Epstein Drive -- are explained no further in the series. The rest of the book's technology is pretty much bone-standard...

Yeah, I was a little harsh. There's an Android Kindle app and an Android Amazon Video app. But nothing that uses Android services, or would require Amazon to pay any licensing fees to Google.

I feel like they slowed the pace to the point where it's obvious they don't plan to go past the end of Caliban's War next season. I'm just guessing, of course. But think about all the things yet to...

Luke Cage had a more distinctive, deliberately chosen style -- sort of "blaxploitation noir," if I may coin a term. This, I think, is a primary reason opinions tend to polarize around the series.

As I noted in my post last week, this season covered less than half of the second book, so be prepared to spoil the entirety of the third season if you do read it.

IMO, however, having read the...

Vizio M55-D0 + Xbox One S for $700

I say "Xbox', but it is actually a $250 GC that you can use for anything Dell sells, within 90 days.

Dell offers the Vizio M55-D0, new, for $699 shipped. An ordinary price, but the deal includes...

Dell Home is offering the M55-D0 for $699, and including a $250 GC with which I would buy an Xbox One S. So both items for $700 shipped.

Any flaws in this plan?

The SyFy site shows the episode airing from 10:02pm to 11:03. Odd times. My TiVo guide data also shows Deals from the Darkside. It did set a recording of Ep 12 for a re-airing next Monday.

Four novels and one novella from the Vorkosigan Saga have actually won Hugos in their own rights, with five others nominated. How this series wouldn't win "Best Series" is beyond me, except that we...
