The Expanse Is Here And It’s Amazing

So, there’s this book series that I’ve really enjoyed – The Expanse. I read the first book before it hit stores, and I’ve been hooked since. Now, it’s been turned into a TV series on SyFy, and after watching the first four episodes, I’m pretty sure that it’s as good as Battlestar Galactica. Yeah, I said it.

The show does a good job adapting Leviathan Wakes, but it does do it’s own thing. They nailed the casting, and they absolutely nailed the sets and look and feel of the world.

I’ve been doing a lot with this show: earlier this May, I wrote up a major article for Barnes and Noble about how the Expanse came together, which is a really fascinating story. I’m very proud of that article. A little after that, I reviewed the 5th book, Nemesis Games for io9.

More recently, I’ve written up a couple of things:

Speaking of which.

The pilot is now available just about everywhere, including on YouTube:

 

You should go watch it. It’s pretty excellent.
