I’m finally watching The Expanse – it’s really good! I keep having to pause to look up guest actors.
Last night: “hey wait. is that...? could it be him? it is!!!”
The Expanse is good. I just wish they wouldn’t dial the freaking drama up to eleven at every opportunity. Like I get that tv is a visual medium, show-don’t-tell, etc... but damn. Things can just happen without the highest of high stakes.
(This is a general problem I have with contemporary tv, though.)
@ashfurrow Dark Matter taught me that the interior of every futuristic space station looks like a basement in a Toronto high rise, so anything is possible if you believe
@Dee holy shit I loved it every time an actor from stargate showed up. like YEAH Tori Amos is EXACTLY what this show needed 😍
@ashfurrow Uhg, yes! Could not agree more. Everything is always the most important thing which makes nothing important.
@keithzg yeah, that’s fair. I just mean that the show doesn’t balance the drama quite right.
like this creature just spent an entire episode trying to rip through a reactor core, and it was really important to stop it ASAP because a character is dying, but also,,, we cut away for dramatic dialogue and contrived personal conversations. the urgent thing shouldn’t happen at the same time as the slow thing if they share a resolution, imo.
