‘The Expanse’ is Back and is as Excellent as Ever

It's Back.....

Poster from S1; After the first three seasons, SyFy claimed production values were too high; Amazon picked it up for S4.

100% Critics Consensus: Smart and thrilling as ever, The Expanse‘s fourth season doesn’t miss a beat, successfully navigating network changes without losing any of its rich character work or narrative complexities. From Rotten Tomatoes

The show’s canny use of consequences ensures that its wilder sci-fi concepts exist in a context that grounds them without diminishing their impact. Even more importantly, those consequences always exist for narrative purposes. Information is never introduced simply for its own sake, but rather to ensure that the viewer is constantly aware of the cost of all this space travel and terraforming.

Unlike the pulp fantasy of Star Wars or the utopian vision of Star Trek: The Next Generation, The Expanse is a fictional future that takes what we already know about humanity and the systems we cling to, and just gives us more room to fuck everything up.” From the AV Club review
