The Expanse Discussion: “Remember the Cant” and “CQB”

The plot picks up in Episodes 3 and 4, with a riot, an attack, and the connections among the various strands becoming clear–

— meaning it’s time to introduce the Mormans’ Nauvoo ship, so we can be confused about how that fits.

Production and acting remain strong. The story moves along, though the disparate plot threads are not always smoothly integrated, and some viewers may find it difficult to follow.

As with many contemporary series, episodes aren’t really meant to stand alone. Two more reviews will be posted, one after next week’s episode (the halfway point) and one after the season finale.

    All the stuff on Ceres station can go die in a fire. I’m way more interested in the space politics stuff but Ceres feels like a poor man’s Babylon 5.

    Unfortunately I think the various plotlines are going to meet there for the majority of the show (BLEH!).

    Sticking with it for now but not sure for how much longer.

      The novels have a pay-off, but it’s not stunningly original. As for Ceres, I get the similarities, but I think it’s a different take on a space colony than B5’s. They also have a twenty-year (!) advantage on F/X technology..
