Anyone still watching this?  Episode 5 wrapped up the events of the first novel, and Thomas Jane knocked it out of the park.  Episode 6 is where the second novel's events begin. 

When shows are translated from books that I love, I am usually disappointed, but the heavy involvement of the two writers of the book series (Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck, write the books as James SA Corey) has allowed them to make the TV series a bit more dynamic than the books because they aren't limited by a small number of POVs.  It was kinda cool to see short-stories and a novella incorporated into the TV show in real-time with the events of the novels. 

I am also continually surprised by the actors they have been able to cast in roles that I was positive would be difficult to fill.  Example, Martian Marine Bobbie Draper, but they managed to find someone perfect for the role.  It's also cool that accents are almost irrelevant so she can be a Martian with a Kiwi accent and there's no reason to question it. 

Anyway, if you haven't watched The Expanse, I encourage you to do so.  The first season is a bit of a slow burn (It picks up in Episode 3 and onward) but I think it's worth it.  It's the best thing Sci-Fi (er, SyFy) network has produced IMO.

Loved the first season and looking forward to binge watching this one. One of my favorite SyFy series since the BSG remake.

Picking up steam now.  The actress they got for Bobbie Draper is really killing it.  I'm also really enjoy Cara Gee's character, Drummer (who in the books doesn't show up until Nemesis games.
