    The Expanse was a hidden gem. Started watching it after your recap of S1- S4. Even though the storylines were spoiled, the show experience was so good. All credits to you too for introducing to a great show

    • BlownMacTruck

      Hidden gem? I don't think you know what that term means. The books are incredibly well known and the show's been critically acclaimed since its first season with throngs of fans and when Amazon rescued it from being cancelled it was widely and loudly proclaimed across the internet.

    • Listin

      @BlownMacTruck I am not from the western hemisphere bro.

    • BlownMacTruck
      BlownMacTruck Před 2 lety

      @Listin My apologies. I didn’t know literature and the Internet were restricted to the Western Hemisphere.

    • Listin
      Listin Před 2 lety +11

      @BlownMacTruckFYI people outside the western hemisphere have their own culture, movies, literature and internet drams to follow. Either a western show has to be extremely popular or it has deep enough pocket for marketing to reach inside our bubble.

    • BlownMacTruck
      BlownMacTruck Před 2 lety

      @Listin Your lack of personal knowledge about it still doesn’t makes this show a hidden gem.

    As a book reader I can appreciate all of the back story you put into your video. Let me just also say that I absolutely love this show and would watch every video you post

  • Kelkster04
    Kelkster04 Před 2 lety +4

    I LOVE these break downs and will be so happy if you can do all the season 5 episodes!!!! Secretly hoping for some Stranger Things or Umbrella Academy breakdowns as well, but I won't get greedy.

  • Labubs, An Outer Heaven Patriot

    Really awesome to see you doing Expanse content again! Love all your stuff, but this is one of my top 3 franchises (if not #1, honestly)...The final book is releasing pretty soon, would love it if you considered continuing the book videos in the off-season!

  • librefy
    librefy Před 2 lety +3

    Been waiting for this, thank you! Your Expanse videos convinced me to recently binge the entire show until s5, after initially thinking it was a boring show after ep101 years ago. I'm glad to have been wrong about it!

  • Tracy Metherell
    Tracy Metherell Před 2 lety

    Thank you so much for giving us episode breakdowns for season 5! It will help get the viewership up for the Expanse which is so underwatched! Thanks so much for giving it some buzz! If you were to do the first four seasons episode by episode I would faithfully watch each one. I hope a lot of your viewers start from episode 1 and binge the whole series. It is such a great ride!

  • Scott Douglas
    Scott Douglas Před 2 lety +28

    This show is the best sci-fi around anywhere at the moment. It's consistently excellent. Pretty much the polar opposite of Star Trek Discovery, a show so bad it gave me cancer.

  • Nick Brya
    Nick Brya Před 2 lety +22

    I'm so hyped you're doing these videos! I just caught up with the show after starting last week because I needed some more Alt Shift X in my life but I had to watch the show first.

  • Sween

    You always do such thoughtful breakdowns and you have the same tastes as me, thank you for putting effort into what you do.

  • Sherry B
    Sherry B Před 2 lety

    My husband and I love your videos. Thank you for this one & the recap of seasons 1-4. We definitely want more Expanse videos. You catch all the call backs that flay right over our heads.

  • MrOxion
    MrOxion Před 2 lety

    People seem split on this season. Some say its been disappointing but its one of the closest adaptations of the books (coincidentally the fan favorite book too). I personally think its a great season and I love to hear your breakdowns.

  • Elly Mizrahi
    Elly Mizrahi Před 2 lety

    Oh yeah... Amos. Lines like the one about pumps are great levity - I think “Tiny,” “Chrissy,” and his talk with Holden about Clarissa without mentioning Clarissa are my faves of this season - but the time when he describes why he beat Roma so badly to Prax about what would happen to Mei if she was trafficked... THAT was when he became my favorite character. This season was hit or miss for me on the first viewing (Naomi’s scenes were AMAZING acting on Tripper’s part, but even they went on a bit too long and no one else really seemed to do much), but Amos’ story was never part of my critique it was great from start to finish - even if it was the least sci-fi/ space-based of a show about the vastness of space. And as for his emotional journey, I think season 4’s finale where he’s regrowing a finger, “Murty” gives him a reason to attack him and Amos just gets that snarl going on his face was a great show of his breaking out.

  • Jonathan Reich
    Jonathan Reich Před 2 lety

    The Expanse is the best show on tv with the show honing closely to the books for the most part. Sci-Fi with lots of science based foundation (other than the alien artifacts). Hope Alt Shift X will do more reviews of the shows.

  • Tw1zt84
    Tw1zt84 Před 2 lety

  • Seldom Seen Smith
    Seldom Seen Smith Před 2 lety

    I wish you'd cover more than just 1 or 2 episodes or doing a recap of a season. This is the best hard scifi show in a long time and deserves a lot more coverage.
    [Edit] Westworld's a mess, got is dead, this is pretty much all that's left unless you're willing to start covering 'The Last Kingdom' or 'The Witcher'.

    • David Bailey

      I'm pretty sure there's game of thrones prequels coming out

    • Seldom Seen Smith
      Seldom Seen Smith Před 2 lety

      @David Bailey True but considering what's been released/leaked about them I'm pretty sure they'll suck.

  • Anaru Carroll
    Anaru Carroll Před 2 lety

    This show is finally starting to build up the Momentum GoT had around season 4! I hope they continue the show after season 6 and.... (BOOK 6&7SPOILERS!!!)
    just ignore or work around the Time Jump. They can just age up the actors with makeup (or maybe VFX ala Captain America, albiet that was probably very expensive, maybe just save that for Avasarala), and chalk up the uncannyness to them having anti-ageing technology 300 years in the future.

    Anyone else understands Marco's perspective? I mean it's not the right way ofc but if he didn't start acting radically the Belters would still be disrespected by every nations even after "The Rings" appeared. Now I just hope the series will explore more on the protomolecule's potential and new worlds or The Builders... the whole Nagata drama is getting a bit too long almost annoying at this point.

    • Liam McNulty
      Liam McNulty Před 2 lety

      Nah, I don't see his perspective. He's just egotistical and power hungry.

  • David Bailey
    David Bailey Před 2 lety +1

    If they were trying to make Phillip look "ruthless and murderous" when he lets that guy die, they failed. There is a shot that shows about 30 seconds left before the science vessel blows up so it's just a smart decision not to go out there and die. If there was more time on the clock sure

    • Robert Winslade
      Robert Winslade Před 2 lety

      Even if it doesn't suggest he is 'ruthless and murderous' per se, it still shows that he is desensitized to death, even of someone he would consider a friend, and that he has bought into the idea that dying for this cause is heroic and noble. Plus earlier in the same scene we see him calmly give the order for the space station's crew to be executed. All in all, I think it does demonstrate that he is a bit of a fanatic

    • David Bailey
      David Bailey Před 2 lety

      @Robert Winslade I 100% agree with you. I'm nitpicking little stuff has just been standing out to me this season in particular.

    • Robert Winslade
      Robert Winslade Před 2 lety

      @David Bailey I've been feeling the same about nitpicking little stuff tbh 😅 my only major issue with this season has been that the pacing seems off especially with the plot spread across 6 different story threads, but this is something which I think will be way less noticeable when binge-watching. In fact I've mostly really liked all these plots but a few little details have really bothered me; like inconsistencies in the scale of the attack on Earth, or that they never established that Holden had the Roci checked for sabotage after the attack even though I know that he does in the book and it's such a common sense thing to do, plus that weird fight scene with Peaches. All of these are fairly small issues in the big scheme of things but I feel like they've really bothered me for some reason

    • David Bailey
      David Bailey Před 2 lety

      @Robert Winslade I haven't read the books yet but that's understandable in this instance to create a little bit of drama I would say from now on he will check for sabotage lol.
      I was starting to think that they ran out of source material. With lines like "thinking of your earther James Holden famous for drinking coffee" at first you're like oh that's cute but then you think about it and you're like wait how does she know he likes coffee and that is most definitely not what he is famous for.
      I know that they shot a documentary but we never got the sense that they showed him drinking coffee or whatever from the show's perspective they didn't even finish the documentary because of peach's sabotage.
      I was so triggered by the awkward editing in the peaches fight scene I tweeted at The Expanse. there's also three jump cuts when drummer screams in the latest episode that just takes me out of the moment.
      They also reuse a technique where they let a sound bite play over the credits they did it in season 1 episode 3 and the latest episode season 5 episode 8 I just found it more impactful the first time it was when the star Helix rookie gets pinned to a wall
      I agree the weekly schedule could be messing with us a bit because we're basically at the end of the second act of a movie and it's about to go down so I imagine the season is going to get more interesting.... I hope

    Loved this series the first couple of seasons, stopped watching it during season 5. This entire plotline with Filip and Marco was just painful. I already didn't like Marco from his introduction in the previous season, and this season was just more of a terrible villain, and making me dislike the previous characters. A friend of mine explained its tied to the story from the books, and well... that doesn't make it any better, lol. I hate this cheap style of television writing, with forced drama between characters in almost EVERY scene.
