    Definitely excited for Season 2. Season 1 felt like it cracked open so many doors but we only got a few brief glimpses through each one, hopefully Season 2 will shed some more light on the characters and the setting. I feel like alot of the secondary actors didn't get as much screen time as I would've liked, so I'm very interested in seeing more of Jared Harris' and Chad Coleman's characters and what they've got going on behind closed doors...

    I have to say. I watched the first few episodes and I was not hooked. I actually feel asleep during them. Could be because I was exhausted but... anyway, I didn't get it but more important I hated the advertisement, "Battlestar Galactica meets Game of Thrones." Ugh. I believe that's what bugged me most about it. Also, I had a problem with Miller's motivation to save this rich girl. Was he bored with his current situation? Was he just creepy and wanted to help a hot chick? Was he in it for the money? I felt like it was one of those, "If you only read the book, you'd understand."

    So, I skipped this show.

    Then, folks started asking me if I had seen "The Expanse"? I responded exactly what you just read above.

    FF'd to last month. The Expanse was on Amazon Prime so I gave it another shot. What got me hooked: Shohreh Aghdashloo's performance; the characters, and anything Martian. I especially love Gunny Honey Bunny!! She would so kick my ass oif she heard that (and I would love every moment). It definitely has a Firefly vibe more than Game of Thrones or Battlestar. I still feel there are a lot of winks and nods to the books. Not having read them, I cannot confirm that. That being said, I'm a fan checking it out week-to-week.

    I have to say this show benefits from repeated viewings. During the first season I enjoyed the first few episodes, but had not fallen in love with it. Then I saw CQB and the scene at the end where they get on board the Tachi and escaped from the dying Donnager. I was hooked. Going back and rewatching that first season, I really found that I enjoyed it much more than the first time around. Season 2 was even better than season one. I hope this is a show that gets to tell the entire story of the books (which are awesome if you haven't read them) before being cancelled.
