I'll probably watch it again tonight with the airing of the second episode.
I definitely need to give it a rewatch too.

I watched the 1st episode on Vudu HDX, the FX IMO were quite good. I would say for sure BSG level. I haven't watched the DVR recording yet to see if there is any drop in quality.

I'd be interested to hear how the DVR (what service?) compares to Vudu HDX. I consider Vudu better no competition especially with SyFy (which looked worse to me than most other channels) but that was with an older DVR and it's been 2 years since I've unplugged.

The bird. I too thought the bird didn't look real but, I thought it likely that it wasn't supposed to be a real bird but a toy or marketing gimmick for one of the vendors in the bazaar.

What a great story line. The books were good so there maybe hope for this series. Decent FX, but the story is what makes for a great series and if these follow the books, it should be a hit.

Liking what I see so far, dense environments and lots of detail. However, it's probably doomed to the garbage pile due to some minor issues with those mag boots and the particular power source they use it's like some kind of fantasy or something. It also had a lot of agenda like Elysium with some classes being better than others. Not really 5/7.

It seems to be rooted, at least, in hard science. What I'm wondering is how they get artificial gravity in the spaceships if they don't rotate to create centrifugal force...? The freighters and ice-mining ships don't. Don't know if they explained it or if it's just magic mcguffin gravity, as in so many space operas. Note: I haven't watched ep 2 yet.

I rewatched the first episode before the second last night. I'm pretty sure it was a real bird. However, it moved oddly due to flying in low gravity.

I thought all the FX were fantastic, personally.

I wouldn't necessarily call it "hard science." Although it certainly makes more of an effort than most space operas, it still takes a bunch of shortcuts. The way the little shuttlecraft was zipping around to dodge the torpedoes (and later the ship debris) was pure Star Wars with no basis in zero gravity physics.

That's a good thought, I hadn't thought of the low gravity.

I also think the FX are excellent as well, surprisingly so, maybe this is one Syfy show where there's some real money being spent.

I trying to resist watching the next 2 episodes via OnDemand as then there won't be a new one for me to watch for almost 3 weeks.

Josh Z,

It's pretty simple applied science also known by scriptwriters as, "pulling it out of my a$$". It goes like this if I recall correctly, if they can fire "torpedoes" from a long range ship, the other can ship can dodge them causing them to instead blow up the freighter containing Ice.

The torpedoes were always aimed at the freighter. The shuttle just assumed they were aimed at it.

Regardless, my point was about the way the shuttle flew around, ducking and dodging behind that asteroid. That ship didn't move anything like an object in zero gravity would.

http://www.ew.com/article/2015/12/16/too-much-tv

Quote:
If you feel like there’s an overwhelming number of TV series options, there’s a very good reason for that.
FX has calculated that in 2015 networks and streaming services had a record 409 dramas, comedies and limited series — and that’s not even including unscripted shows or TV movies. Digging into the data, the number of scripted series this year was up 9 percent over 2014, and has doubled since 2009 — while network ratings have, on average, declined.
“The unprecedented increase in the number of scripted series has reached a new milestone in 2015 with a record 409, nearly doubling the total in just the past six years,” said Julie Piepenkotter, executive vice president of research for FX Networks. “This was the third consecutive year that scripted series count has grown across each distribution platform – broadcast, basic and pay cable, streaming — led by significant gains in basic cable and digital services. This statistic is staggering and almost unimaginable from where they were a decade ago.”
If you assume each show is 13 hours (which is really conservative given that many hour-long broadcast dramas have 22-episode seasons), that would mean there were 5,317 hours of potential scripted TV to watch this year.

At best we can hope the reality bubble bursts and documentaries come into fashion to help fix some dumb people. That's as likely as a sci-fi show that everybody likes though.

The same technology the U.S.S. (NCC-1701) Enterprise uses; everyone seems to gladly accept it, though.

I'm willing to accept magnetic boots plus something floating in the air nearby as sufficient shorthand to indicate a zero gravity environment, instead of downgrading a show for not spending its whole budget on wire work.

I'm also willing to accept a bird that's learned to adapt to a low-gravity environment, and occasional effects like a curving stream of water to indicate a rotating environment.

It's easy to write that Belters are all tall and skinny in a book. Harder to cast a show that way. Compromises must be made. This show's compromises are unusually clever and astute (more than one physiological adaptation to a life in low gravity).

IMO, after watching three episodes, The Expanse has hooked me with its fast-moving, complex storytelling rife with twists and surprises (even for a reader of the series), its exceptional visuals (full of incredible detail that encourages repeated viewing), good-to-excellent acting (jury's still out on that one, but no performance has yet taken me out of the story), and full engagement of my sense of wonder.

Perhaps best of all, it treats its audience as if they are intelligent adults. This may spell its doom, but IMO it deserves all the support we can muster.

I watched all four episodes, that's out on the interweb. I agree it looks promising. Episode 4 is even more reminiscent of BSG's SFX style and sound design as well.

I thought I'd look here to see what people are saying about the show. My wife & I started watching it - twice. We both thought it was slow moving & gave up after about 10 minutes. We thought we'd try again the next day with a fresh start but still thought slow moving. She said if the pilot is not engaging enough to hold her interest then the rest of it probably will not be either. Since the comments here are positive I guess we'll continue & see how it progresses.

I remember Breaking Bad taking an entire season to get good. The Expanse did take a minute to get moving however. First 3 are like a road map of sorts and then the gears start moving.

In the books the ships are stacked like buildings turned on their sides and they create gravity through constant acceleration.

They hint at that in the show but don't explain it outright. Whenever a ship loses forward thrust the crew either activates their gravity boots or free-floats. So, after watching E2, I had to watch E3&E4. My quibbles about the VFX aside; It's a very good show.

Last show spent lots of time following a crew repairing their vessel and budgeting oxygen. Not especially exciting plot-wise, but it's great to have a series that can go into details because it's long enough. Not helter-skelter like a 90-minute movie has to. Also, so far at least, they're avoiding disjointed logic, like the zombie-fest in "The Returned" from France on Sundance, or winged devil-figures in space ships (Clarke's "Childhood's End."} Thought SyFy's "The Magicians" is a clever twist in itself. And amazed at tuning in the network regularly now, while previously avoiding all earlier shows.

Also they seem to be, at least on ships, always in between gravity. Heel clicking fools.

Wow what a great series. I've watched all 4 episodes available (2 from my TV and episodes 3 & 4 online) and I'm very impressed and intrigued. Folks are right, things really pick up after an episode or two. The ship's escape from the docking bay at the end of Episode 4 was awesome. Can't wait for more. This show is now at the top of my watchlist alongside stuff like GoT and Black Sails.

Yeah and none of it would make any sense without the prior groundwork that was laid out which for some reason is frowned upon by so many. Black Sails BTW is so awesome, can't wait the next round.
