    The Expanse

    Season 4 just dropped on Amazon, I'm excited to get to it this weekend. I got into the series late, but I was hooked after the first few episodes and binged the three available seasons in about a week. I'm considering reading the books since I enjoyed the show so much.

    Anybody else watching?

    I haven't watched any of the show but (not to be that guy) I've read all of the books. Super addicting stuff, I know Mike has read a ton of them too. They aren't ground breaking or To Kill A Mockingbird or anything, but they're definitely fun page-turners.

    If you're into sci-fi, The Lost Fleet series is the same type of stuff.

    I've read the whole series, and they're awesome page turners for sure. Season 4 will be interesting since some very pivotal shit is about to go down

    I've also been watching the Altered Carbon series on Netflix while I'm on the treadmill lately. Only a few episodes in and it's not too bad.

    I absolutely loved the style of Altered Carbon, though the story itself was maybe above average but nothing too amazing.

    The Expanse has been in my list for a long time now (along with other stuff like Mr. Robot), but I just keep watching other stuff. I definitely need to check it out sometime, though.

    Sounds like I'll have to check out Altered Carbon myself.

    Mr. Robot was pretty cool, too.

    The story is a lot better in the books (which is always the case) but I'm right with you on the style of the show. They really did a great job with that dirty noir feel to it, where even the futuristic stuff feels dirty and run down. Very Blade Runner-esque.

    I fucking love the Expanse. I’m on book 3 and I’ve watched the first 3 seasons, plus the first 2 of season 4. I’m totally hooked and it’s overtaken BSG reimagined as my favorite sci-fi franchise.

    Altered Carbon starts really strong, but like Naren said, the plot is a little lackluster. Super engaging universe rife with RPG idea pilfering; The Expanse is included there too.

    Mr. Robot is super rad as well, though I’m not a programmer, so some of that stuff went right over my head.
