On December 31, 2015, I started the thread "The Expanse" gets 2nd Season from Syfy and on February 2, 2017, a thread The Expanse was started by the2130 with this post: Yesterday the comprehensive article If You Care About Earth, You Should Watch The Expanse appeared on the Gizmodo site explaining why this show is so complex but so very good and reminding us: After a close brush with death before Amazon swooped in to save it, The Expanse is officially back for a fourth season in December. Which means that if you’re not already obsessed with the space opera that blends interplanetary politicking and battles with alien monsters, you’ve got a few months to catch up. But it’s not just science fiction fans who can find a lot to love in this show—so can anyone concerned with the habitability of humanity’s homeworld. For reasons that are complicated we weren't able to watch much of Season 2. A couple of months ago I read about Amazon saving the show . Discovering that the three completed seasons are available on Amazon Prime, we started watching Season 2 again. IMHO it is the best scifi show produced in this decade. (EDIT: An hour ago this headline appeared ‘The Expanse’ Renewed for Season 5 at Amazon) But it is complicated. Fortunately, the article linked above might be the best place to start if you have never seen the shown as it gives a good overview. I feel I need to note if you're idea of good science fiction is doing battle with alien monsters, the article beyond that first paragraph above uses the term "Alien-esque horror elements" which is a more accurate description of a science-gone-wrong element. I can only speculate, but I wonder if Amazon saved the series because as Amazon founder Jeff Bezos explained in May he is in the space business per this article in The New York Times Jeff Bezos Unveils Blue Origin’s Vision for Space, and a Moon Lander: In a carefully choreographed event akin to an announcement of a new iPhone, Jeffrey P. Bezos unveiled a moon lander. Mr. Bezos, the founder and chief executive of Amazon, also owns Blue Origin, a rocket company. In a convention center ballroom here, Mr. Bezos described on Thursday a dreamy, ambitious vision of the future: a trillion people in space, living not on moons or planets, but bucolic space colonies in a style originally envisioned by a Princeton physicist, Gerard K. O’Neill. “This would be an incredible civilization,” Mr. Bezos said. The space colonies would be built by future generations. Mr. Bezos said what he and others today can do is start building the infrastructure. In the short-term, that includes a lunar lander, Blue Moon, a sleek vehicle that became visible as a curtain in front was yanked away.
