Forum rules
You are free to offer your opinions on a show, episode, book, film, film series, cinematic universe, etc., as long as it applies to that item, and not to the stated or assumed political views of the producers, writers, actors, key grip, best boy, intern, etc., of said item. In short, you want to talk about a show or movie, talk about the show or movie.

Others are free to disagree with your opinion. (You are not entitled to express your opinion in a vacuum.) BUT that opposing opinion must follow the same requirements above that the original opinion had to follow, as well as not bringing in the assumed political views of the original poster. (I leave out "stated" as they should not state any political position here on STPMA.)

ALSO, do not toss about derogatory labels at someone who offers an opinion in opposition to yours. No name calling, political labels (SJW, etc.,) questioning their humanity, morality, ethics, true fan status, or your assumption they are in the business to protect a certain fandom (gatekeeping, etc.). Again, discuss the show or movie not the politics or motives of another poster.

If you dislike something, it's perfectly fine to say so. However, posting your dislike every time someone else says anything positive about a show or movie, essentially stating the same thing over and over again is not acceptable. If you have something new to add, or are replying to a specific point in someone else's comment, okay. But if it's just to state once again, "IT SUCKS!" Don't.

The Expanse

Finally got caught up with Season 2 on Netflix and have to say that I love this show.

There is some great story telling going on here, with some compelling characters, whilst the setting is a little more 'hard science' than I'm used too (or at least hard for a TV show) it helps ground it in a sense of reality.

Anyone else liking this show?

Any show that provides surprises, and stays fresh, is usually well done.

This show is well done.

Other than star trek, the orville is the only science fiction show I have watched since a kid and watching original battlestar galactics, time tunnel.

Heard some good things about this, might give this a look

I have really Enjoyed the expanse. If you can, be sure to watch the Amazon Prime cut instead of just the syfy one.
Season 5 is supposed to drop sometime this fall I believe.

I am also waiting on Book 9 to be released and that should finish the series, in book form.

The biggest difference is the Language. The sci-fi one has to meet "broadcast" standards for language, but the streaming on Amazon they are much freer with it. And the swearing is actually one of the defining traits for one character, so losing it takes something away.
