    stunning TV series, I've not seen such a great sci-fi show since 2004's Battlestar Galactica. It's been a long time.

    What a great message about the need of collaboration and seeing eye to eye, to avoid exploitation that can lead to suffering, terrorism and war... Thanks... Amazon...

    Was waiting for this! and happy to see the book comparisons peppered throughout. Ive been holding off on reading book 9 until the show concludes. Happy to get more Expanse content through you.

    Pretty interesting the Belters ignore the fact Earth was filled with people suffering and struggling to get by.
    Good example of class struggles and the misdirected anger

    • hackatthekeyboard
      hackatthekeyboard Před rokem +4

      Honestly it's unrealistic that there wouldn't be any movements on earth sympathetic to belters. Likewise that there wouldn't be belters connecting their experience of colonization with those victimized the same way on Earth. It's an interesting series but the authors' radical centrist politics and relatively shallow understanding of colonialism definitely hamper the world building.

    I'm really enjoying your calm and complete narratives of The Expanse - great job, thanks. I was so disappointed in Season 6 that felt so rushed and slipshod, but your filling it out a bit makes it make more sense.

    DO ARCANE! I know you can breeze through all the lore, short stories, event history, and comics of the LOL canon universe, and then apply it to your style of video about the Arcane series! That would be epic!

    How much do the books explain the truth behind the entities, builders, and protomolecules? I assume it's left a mystery for the most part, but I'd love to get that origin.

    • MK
      MK Před rokem +9

      Last 3 novels delved into it. A lot. I'm reading them all a second time now they're the best arc in the whole series.

    • Thomas Langford
      Thomas Langford Před rokem +6

      We are eventually given plenty of historical and biological background info on the protomolecule builders. We get much less about the gate entities, but that's because they are essentially unknowable and God like.
      The best thing about the expanse is that we are always eventually given good answers to our questions based in science or understandable character choices.

    • Kyle
      Kyle Před rokem +2

      We learn a ton about the ptotomolecue builders. The gate entities are basically was they should not have fucked with. We of course fuck with both because human.

    REALLY confusing to get an episode 1 video the day of the finale promoted WITH the finale video. Are you going to do individual videos for each episode?

    • MK

      Right? Am I crazy or did balls get dropped on getting these videos out in a timely manner?

    • Johnismybestfriend
      Johnismybestfriend Před rokem +6

      @MK This video was originally released on the Amazon Prime UK channel when the first episode was released. They probably had some sort of a deal where they could only upload this on their own channel at a later date.
      Just as right now the season finale explanation is only visible on the Amazon Prime UK channel, which will probably be uploaded at a later date on the Alt-Shift-X page.

    Hi please consider covering other book content, specifically Dragon Age The Stolen Throne which while based on the game series, is a prequel. I wasn't so sure about it at the start but by the end I'd argue Maric, Rowan and Loghain had some of the best character progression in fiction, if also some of the darkest.

  • SparkyFister

    S6 has some of the best character development and combat in the entire series!
    This show and its source material are too good to stop now. There’s three more books with major storylines to conclude. I hope Alcon gets to do them justice.

    I like The Expanse - even more, after I rewatched it twice.
    BUT... the pacing is awful, and season 6 is starting out awfully slow, considering it's the final season and there's still a metric shit ton of stuff to wrap up.

    I want to care, but The Expanse went woke. I bowed out during season 5. What a shame Amazon let activist weirdos run this franchise into the ground.

  • Weeohhweeohh

    • doubledown0411
      doubledown0411 Před rokem +4

      The Laconian stuff doesn't work at all in my opinion. I also don't know what non-book readers are even getting out of it. I know why Cara, Xan and Laconia are important, but I can't imagine show only people caring at all. It doesn't seem connected to anything.

    • Weeohhweeohh
      Weeohhweeohh Před rokem +3

      @doubledown0411 I think the TV writers wanted to leave an obvious thread hanging. It was necessary if they want to eventually do the last three books but it just didn't work for me. It's a shame they didn't just do a 3 or 4 episode mini series based on "Strange Dogs".

    The way this season ends is extremely disappointing. While I understand that this is supposed to be IT, I hope they have some kind of plan to finish the books.

  • Brad McMinn
    Brad McMinn Před rokem +17

    This season was 4 episodes of nothing, then 2 where something actually happened, then its over. Extremely dissapointing end to a show that started out so strong (not quite GoT level bad, thank god). I guess the show runners are hoping some other service will pick it up.

    • Average Alien

  • Bezukhov
    Bezukhov Před rokem

    I never read the books but I think Amazon made them stretch the show out without a good budget, basically milking the show. I do not know the numbers to confirm, however. The finale was in the vein of the first 3 seasons but seasons 4,5,6 in general were lackluster and boring because of that.

    • Sir Crapalot
      Sir Crapalot Před rokem +3

      S4, S5, and S6 each encompass the arcs of Books 4,5, and 6 respectively, as well as incorporating novellas that take place at about the same time.

    • Bezukhov

      @Sir Crapalot interesting. Were they this boring as well?

    • Sir Crapalot

      @Bezukhov I blasted through each of the audiobooks in a few days, and have been re-reading each one starting with Book 4. As an engineer, I think The Expanse series is some of the best science fiction out there. Maybe it's not for you.

    • Bezukhov
      Bezukhov Před rokem

      @Sir Crapalot first 3 season were for me. Not the last 3. Don't get tense with me, geek. You're average. Also you being an engineer means nothing. Maybe you just love soap opera.

    This show is full of cringe, cliche and deus ex machina moments but is still pretty entertaining and engaging lmao. It also sucks that every mistery that is presented gets resolved literally the next episode so there's not really much of a reason to watch "explained" type of videos. I still watch yours because your narration and presentation is just that good.

    • IrradiadedCrow
      IrradiadedCrow Před rokem +2

      @IrradiadedCrow Yesterday I watched ep6 s5 (im not 100% sure it was that one). Amos got saved by the daughter of Jules, she regained the ability to use her modification just when he was about to get shot, how convenient. Then Alex and Draper escape because they can drop the core of the ship to hit a torpedo?? Well that's fine i guess they are stranded now... wait they can still turn on the reactor??? Lmao. I guess is not deus ex machina per se because it relies on them but yeah pretty dumb. And every episode has me rolling my eyes at least a few times. I still watch it though, it is entertaining and a visual spectacle.

    • IrradiadedCrow
      IrradiadedCrow Před rokem +2

      @Cristian Campos Those are high tension situations where characters make risky choices to save each other. I've seen Deus Ex Machina many times and it does not apply to those situations. Stop looking for things to complain about.

    • Cristian Campos
      Cristian Campos Před rokem +1

      @IrradiadedCrow Ok keep justifying dumb stuff. I dont get why people get so butthurt when they like something, is not a personal attack, you can enjoy stuff and still find flaws to it. I do and i still enjoy the show.

    This series ended with season 4 for me. Marcos' storyline, the actor, the writing, has been a sustained cringe. I think I got through episode 1 of this season and haven't gone back. After forcing myself through the terrible season 5, I can't waste more time and force myself through another.

      Disagree completely. What wasted time are you referring to? The S6 episodes are much tighter than previous seasons. The Laconia scenes are straight out of the novella Strange Dogs and pay off in the next major storyline.
      Seasons 1 and 2 alluded to events that would take place in 5 and 6. Just because the payoff isn’t immediate doesn’t mean there is none.

      Yup. Imo the series is so good.

    • EquinoxOmega
      EquinoxOmega Před rokem +5

      Partially agree with that, but the problems started with season 3, where the merged many individual Belter characters together that have a huge impact on the plot later and since then, the belter story line suffered from it. Season 4 was mostly loyal to the book (only leaving out the Havelock storylines), but season 5 was paced too slowly, while season 6 felt rushed although they included the Laconia stuff that only matters for storylines of book 8 and 9, which is strange as they are not going to adapt them.

    • Bezukhov
      Bezukhov Před rokem +1

      I wonder if Amazon didn't give them a budget, and maybe made stretch cheap boring parts or something. Omigod season 5 was soooo boring.

  • Scyths1
    Scyths1 Před rokem +4

    Genuine question, why did they feel the need to change Sanjrani from a male to a non-binary character ? What does it add to the show exactly ?

    • Novenae
      Novenae Před rokem +9

      Representation, I guess? If a character's canon gender doesn't matter (Which maybe it does, I dunno, I haven't read the books), then you may as well use it as an opportunity to portray people who were previously not represented that much. That said, I had no idea they were non-binary until it was mentioned outside of the show.
