The Expanse is an American space opera / mystery science fiction drama television series on Syfy, based on the series of novels by James S. A. Corey.
Two hundred years in the future, in a fully colonized Solar System, police detective Josephus Miller, born in the asteroid belt, is given the assignment to find a missing young woman, Julie Mao. Meanwhile, James Holden, the first officer of an ice freighter, is involved in a tragic incident that threatens to destabilize Earth, Mars and the Belt. Far away from their struggles in space, Chrisjen Avasarala, a United Nations executive, works to prevent war between Earth and Mars by any means necessary. Soon, the three find out that the missing woman and the ice freighter’s fate are part of a vast conspiracy that threatens all humanity.
This is very good scifi. Every episode keeps you guessing. What I like most is that the villains don’t seem to be fools but are deep and perceptive. Its a nice mystery to watch on a friday night. Personally, I would much prefer to have a full season to binge on but as it stands it moves on nicely. My only problem is that at times it is choppy. Don’t get me wrong… The progression is good but the way the do certain things are just well jarring… even so its a good effort and well worth the watch for any scifi fan…
