I will start this thread off with a grunt, "ugh." Not of dislike, but in the manner of James Delaney (main character, played by Thomas Hardy). This is the way he replies to many of the other characters in the series, Taboo. It's what someone says when they are 2 steps ahead of their enemies but have to rely on people who are always 2 steps behind.
It's pretty remarkable for me. Even if all you care about are amazing images (cinematography) and fantastic sets. But if you appreciate this and like the unusual plot and subject, that builds a world that makes sense, then you might enjoy this series. Too many excellent performances to count.
At least 2 more seasons to come according to the show runner.

SUASOR


I was not expecting it to be as good as it actually was. One of those increasingly common pleasant surprises with new shows. The Expanse is another one. One could say it all began with Firefly.

May the Good Lord take a liking to you... but not too soon!


I like the trailers but am blocked from watching it. If they don't want to let advertisers pay for shows then they'll keep dying before their time.

Weird - where are you blocked? It looks like they are giving away a free ep at FX:

Not sure that will get you there as the show does start a bit slow, but you'll get an idea.

When I clicked on the show it asked for my provider. You know, dish or direct TV, that sort of thing. That said, I am reluctant to allow these type sites to install an app on my computer, nor did they offer.
