The pilot episode was simply amazing. Stunning visuals, great pacing, solid acing and a nice introduction to this deep and well developed world. Based on the series of novels by James S. A. Corey, the story is set 200 years in the future where mankind has colonized the Moon, Mars, the asteroid belt, and some outer moons, but the stars are out of our reach. The story revolves around a James Holden the second officer on a space ship hauling ice from the rings of Saturn to the port-city asteroid Ceres, when they come across an abandoned ship sending out a distress call. What they find there could change the fate of the solar system. Another key player in the story is Detective Miller, a cop on Ceres station, a man trying to enforce the law in the land of the lawless. Along with his other duties, he is tasked with locating Julie Mao the oldest child of Jules-Pierre Mao, one of the of richest and most powerful men in the system, who ran off to become a freedom fighter. The more he looks in to it, the more Miller starts to think there is a lot more to this case than meets the eye.

Got the first season from the Library and I'm glad I did, because I was thinking of buying it without seeing it first, the reviews were so glorious. But I found it rather boring and unrealistic. Its hard to believe that humanity survived that long, first off. And they're still using 2017 slang. Amazing. And no, NY will not have to have a wall surrounding it to hold back the climate damage...nor will the world turn to socialism to survive (a failed econ system). Yawn....

The stories link together in complex ways that are somewhat unpredictable and denote the underlying cultural processes which are at the heart of the mythology being unveiled. This is REAL SCIFI. It is as if many of the characters came from an ASIMOVIAN universe. The agoraphobic detective, the posh genius politician, the space crew and the underground societies of Trantor. or earth. The tense relations between the center and the periphery of a deteriorating earther empire that crumbles into something new in the Expanse.
