Holy fuck was this the best Sci Fi series I have seen since, my personal favourites, Babylon 5 and Deep Space 9.Seth Kun13 ore faThe sad part about this story/ show is that its cancelled. DamnChad DavisGiorno faI honestly didn't think the Naomi, Marcos and Fillip arc would be so gripping! I ended up binging all the way to the end just because I was willing Naomi to fight her way back to the Rocinante whilst protecting her friends. An the dude who played her son, done a bloody great job! Can't wait to see how he evolves or if he even survives.Eric StodolnikGiorno faThe belt is referring the asteroid belt and the moons beyond... not the Kuiper BeltChristopher KerzelGiorno faHello Drinker. Love your insights. Big fan of the original Star Wars series (queued up for hours to watch the original release in 1977 as a young man), original Star Trek series, etc. - recently the only sci-fi to garner my interest has been the Mandalorian. I gave the expanse a try based on your recommendation and I am at the beginning of season 2 and I have to say I could not agree with your review more. The expanse is the first series to excite me as much about watching the next episode since Breaking Bad. A show for mature people who do not succumb to the modern propensity for virtue signalling - in EVERYTHING! Great review.Joe2 giorni faSeason 4 was pretty boring and the last few episodes of season 5 were really bad and disappointing. They also break a lot of rules they created for the universe many times which can break immersion. Overall still a decent show though.Prkrtr2 giorni faThis has scenes which are spoiler enough. You have not done well Drinker. I knew your video selection style and rightly stayed out before watching it. But I did follow the title of this video and watched this thing. Best show, most thought provoking I have seen in a long time. Good recommendation.ginotry mwariwangu2 giorni faI love the drinker ...damn if I were in any way rich I know who I’d fundC-Sec Officer 1232 giorni faSobaka Beltalowda! Remember the CANTv8matey2 giorni faYou know a show is good when you put it on randomly to watch while having dinner around 8pm. And next thing you know its 1:45am and you start work at 6am. And you can't sleep, because your mind is too active wanting answers from the show.Proto Rhinocerator3 giorni faI started watching this on SyFy when it first came out, but got turned off by Miller. Too much swagger that didn't feel earned. I gave up on the show. I kept hearing all these good things and gave it another try a few months ago. Glad I did. My favorite characters are Amos, Naomi, and Secretary Avasarala. Now I need to wait for the next season.Kure Core3 giorni faThis is the best Sci-Fi serial i ever saw ,period.

And its fucking awesome. Watched 2 season in a weekcas Car6 giorni faitput.info/zone/video/hGxmhJmuvrCedJQSukotsu6 giorni faThis show is so under the radar yet is possibly the best sci-fi show of its kind. The story, characters and acting are superb, add to that the design of the worlds, ships, settings and visuals and is hands down the best show period. This show does so many things right yet gets so little coverage or attention? By all accounts, this show should have as much hype as GOT or The Mandalorian. The Expanse makes Star-Trek Discovery and the Picard show look like amateurs and cheap.alexfoley1237 giorni faSo after this recommendation I went and watched The Expanse...thank you! Every aspect of the show was incredible season on season. I’ve now learnt that if The Critical Drinker recommends something its worth watching.pressrepeat20007 giorni faBest sci-fi show of all time. It was hard getting into it in season 1 because it was a bit cheesy, but it was worth it. It’s so well done. I’m glad Amazon saved it, but also sad it will end after next season rather than continuing on. Wish someone else will take it over. The writing is amazing and so is the acting, but the realistic space life and battles really take the cake.Hat And Beard7 giorni faAfter this review, I watched the entire series. Currently on 2nd watch through and now reading the books. Humanity might be ok, this gives me hope.PT MN8 giorni faI just finished this show, only started because you recommended it, and I was not let down. What an absolutely breath of fresh air! Thanks Drinker!Mr Dean8 giorni faAnother great recommendation, Drinker! First The Boys, which had originally passed over, now The Expanse which I had never heard of. Keep 'em coming, you loquacious bastard 😀Ricky Lahey8 giorni faBecause of the Drinker's recommendation, I am now on season 5 of the show, and cannot recommend this show enough to other peopleFirst6 giorni faI stopped this video about 3 minutes in because the premise sounded great, started watching The Expanse, and have just finished season 5 (and am now back to finish the Drinker's video). Looking forward to season 6 hopefully at the end of this year...Leo Buscaglia9 giorni faWho is that black fella in the show who looks like Samuel L Jackson?Matthew du Plessis9 giorni faEvery Drinker Recommends episode I'd watched before this had been about a movie or show that I had already seen (and loved). The Expanse was a show I had heard of (and had been recommended to me) before, but I hadn't actually watched it when this video came out. On your recommendation, Drinker, I did watch it and thank you - it was amazing. Can't wait for season 6! You did kind of spoil Naomi's betrayal a bit (when everyone thought she had destroyed the protomolecule, I knew what the twist would be because you had hinted too strongly at it) - other than that, a great video. ThanksMatthew Johnson9 giorni faThe the show refers to is the asteroid belt (mainly between Mars and Jupiter), not the Kuiper Belt that exists outside the orbit of Neptune.American Nomad News10 giorni faDude thank you. I've been a supporter of the expanse for quite a while because I'm a space advocate and it shows a realistic view of velocity and motion as it might be experienced in our future in space. Yes we should totally have more shows like this.Marc Fantigrossi10 giorni faIt seems a bit unlikely that this will be seen in a comment section with nearly 7,500 comments on a video that is now over a month old, but I'd feel remiss if I didn't at least try to warn you. I've heard good things about the show, but I have put off watching The Expanse because I have had the misfortune of having read the books. Having watched your review, I now understand why the series has received so much positive attention. It hasn't progressed beyond the story of the first two books in the series, and the series adaptation seems to have been very faithful to the source material. Those first two novels were everything you're seeing in this show. They were gripping, the pacing, the world-building, the flesh and blood and stink of the characters jumping off the page, it was all fantastic. Starting in book three, however, and growing progressively worse with each sequel, the series starts to take a nosedive. Each subsequent book has more and more modern progressive politics injected, and having thought about it, I believe that this is because at the time books 3 and on were being written, the writers were already courting/being courted by Hollywood for a series deal, and they wanted to show that they were willing to play ball to get it. I hope I'm wrong, and that the series somehow manages to deviate from the source material a bit in order to keep the level of quality you've enjoyed here, Drinker, but you should know that there are dark clouds on the horizon if it doesn't. Try not to get too invested, I guess.Christopher Grat10 giorni faThe Expanse is definitely an intelligent scifi series and well written. There is only one other series I miss that I hold a special place in my heart, Farscape.AK10 giorni faDo an anime one dude, don’t care which, JUST DO ITAlessandro B10 giorni faI have just started watching it, and I am devouring it.TheBearlyBanana11 giorni faWatched this video a little over a week ago, started watching the show that day.

It starts up great but drops the ball like no other.Dragan O11 giorni faPleased to review of Battlestar GalacticaTheCodingOwl11 giorni faAfter finishing the 5th season I've got to say: Man! This video didn't age well! After the boring 4th season, this one began to take it up several steps and up until the end, this season was hell of a roller coaster of emotions. The HUGE bummer for me was with the last episode of that season. SPOILERS: The death of Alex was so hugely disappointing. At first I didn't believe he was dead when Draper called him. I even thought his son had died on mars, when they were talking about his wife making the preparations. This death of a hugely favorite character was forced and felt out of place. It ruined the whole experience for me. After investigating a bit, I can't feel that I would have handled the sexual accusations of Cas Anvar the same way. I personally would have finished the season without letting the character die this pointless death and if the accusations would have proven to be right, would have written an excuse for the character to not be in season 6. Let him retire and go back to his wife and son for god sake, but don't rush to kill him off over unconfirmed accusations! As you can see, this made me mad and I fear that the 6th season will get burried in this kind of BS rushed decisions.sakor8811 giorni faBtw, the Belt is not Kuiper belt, but Asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.Georgi Ivanov11 giorni faI will be eternally grateful to the people who brought this to life and into mine. Spread the word, this is what quality looks, sounds and feel like. Genuinely feel like my life is better after having watched this series. This is the kind of story that can inspire people to be a force for a better future.DeadSerious11 giorni faIt is so extremely cringy whenever white men throw a categorical "this is diverse casting done right", check the disproportion of it, it's hilarious.Andy Watts11 giorni faYou do great work mate, love your stuff.socialist redstate11 giorni faOne of the Best shows going todaymariospeedwagen12 giorni faOk randomly recommended ITputr, you've talked me into watching this series for the 3rd time.Joel12 giorni faIt was good the first two seasons... After that, nah. But, he was spot on when he said it displays "diversity done right". It feels natural and authentic rather than forced and to meet some standard of social justice. But... Holden literally always looks like he's crying... I seriously thought he might have a drug it alcohol problem in real life and they would have to kill him off... But nope, he's still crying, which really throws me off. Amos was a cool character, but then they did that thing to him so he didn't have empathy anymore... And magically he went back to normal. And the way they wrote the whole proto-molecule thing just wasn't good IMO.Henry Fu12 giorni faUnlike previously crappy Canadian scifi like Lexx, it actually has a story that is interesting and characters who are multidimensional and yet make sense.Mach Mach12 giorni faWatched 2 episodes years ago and for whatever reason it didn't click. After The Drinkers recommendation I thought I'd give it another go. Glad I did! Marathoned the whole thing and loved it.lordgunner TGSTEL12 giorni faas much as i dont like Jeff Bezos , he earn a point for saving the show from death (with early fan of the expanse and the whole cast promoting the show at a bezos press conference)Paul M12 giorni faYep the expanse is a great show, for the first 3 seasons. The 3 seasons that ran on syfy. I for one remember most of the plot in the first 3 seasons although it was a long time ago, but can barely remeber what season 4 was about and season 5 was kinda of a disaster for me. I also have a feeling that season 6, the last season for the expanse, will be a GoT style disaster (I hope it wont be and that the expanse will end in a way that will leave a mark). After watching season 4 and especially season 5 I now understand why syfy ended the show on their channel after 3 seasons (even if at first I didn't get it and especially after they cancelled Dark Matter which was a different kind of sci fi show that could have had a last season to wrap things up). They took the correct artistic decision, even though financially it would have been profitable to continue with the show. And this shows that having the author on board does not always equal having a great show season after season.Seasong Chronicle13 giorni faNo doubt. Expanse is excellent and this is one of your best reviews. Kudos CD.abstrakt2613 giorni faDidn't know you gave your synopsis on this show...thank you...it's severely under rated and overlooked...especially considering that show is exactly the probability of how humanity will progress and divide amongst itself as evil and corruption flows along underneath good intentions as we today try to embark and become a space faring species...great scifi and good breakdown..."for all the good of man, there will always be our sins"...cheers!I Am The Storm That Is Approaching13 giorni faHoly fuck there is 5 seasons... better get started.Sitou Dien13 giorni faThe first season is hard to watch. But I stuck at it. My biggest complaint is the cinematography. It's way too dark. You can't make out anything.ivanpkv13 giorni faLiterally, in a few days, I've devoured the whole TV show!Joakim Johansson13 giorni faThe Expanse is smart, thoughtful, provocative and so well written. One of the best series I have come across recently. I heard the writer Ty Franc in a podcast talking about the Expanse and you noticed how passionaded he was to bring that little extra to the table and he could talk forever about details in the script and in different scens and the importance of them, even if we dont notice any of the details. Subconsciously this detalis adds to the complexity and overall experience and how we view the story and the different characters and fractions. Take for instance detective Millers hat. Its a reason why he wears it and its not about fashion. Its a backstory behind it that its really interesting if you follow Miller and succeed to read between the lines.pdxeddie111113 giorni faI really liked the expanse until the last season then it kind of went sidewaysGlacius13 giorni faDark Matter is more my cup of tea but I will give The Expanse a try.Colin Forfar13 giorni fadude you should check out a series called fringe prob the best sci/fi ever madebearpitt13 giorni faI watched this show after watching this review. It's amazing and even better than I expected. I'm so glad I watched your video.Sean Smith13 giorni faI'm still watching purely for the hard sci fi aspect of the show. The problem is everything else. The acting/script/directing is pretty cringe inducing.. but at least its not Discovery. edit: After finishing the series, I absolutely adore this show. Bumpy start but it gets on track soon enough. Great characters, great story arcs.jj hajdamacha13 giorni faYou should read the books, theyre incredible and dont ruin the show at all they kinda compliment it actually in many wayspeanarchist13 giorni faIt's the cold war (and it's historical outcomes) in spaceBig Blue13 giorni faThat season 5 tho.... someone please space Naomi....like really.John C14 giorni faHey Drinker, check out that show Counterpart that was cancelled after 2 seasons by Starz because, wait for it... "the show’s audience was 'too male' to fit into Starz' new female-focused strategy." If you do and you like it, would love to hear your review, or at least hear you sh*t on a bunch of woke wankersRaul Rubalcava14 giorni faNo joke I'm on season 3 and I'm so confused as to who's who, what's happening and everything in betweenScott Schultz14 giorni faRaised By WolvesMrSpartanspud14 giorni faThing about the Expanse is it has a fair bit of diversity and left leaning politics. But it's not a dogmatic force feeding. So it's enjoyable. Very enjoyable. And I say that as someone who's mostly left leaning.Tanner Garity14 giorni faIf you like thought provoking and respectful science fiction the Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Die Neue These is pretty well done. It has three factions that are "equally" explored just like the Expanse but tells the story from a professional military angle. The maturity and respect for the audience is almost identical between the two shows in terms of the decisions that characters make have actual consequences in the galaxy that the individuals reside in. Additionally, one of the major reasons I like both The Expanse and Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Die Neue These is that both break away from from certain Science fiction tropes in realistic/creative ways. If you are looking for a more tactical version of The Expanse, the Legend of the Galactic Heroes TV shows are for you. Really, I do not why Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Die Neue These is not mentioned as a contemporary of The Expanse since both shows are exceptional (8.9 and above out of 10 for both shows.)Boilerplate14 giorni faBest recommendation ever. Outside of season 5, this show has been fantastic!Dizzyruptor14 giorni faI quite enjoyed S5. Granted it's not as good as earlier seasons but its a nice change of pace.chris jokinen15 giorni faThis show is my favourite of all time, and the audio books are even betterCanis Majoris15 giorni faSo guys? after certainly watching the show as CD recommended it, what are your feelings after season 5 is ended? No PC correctness at all? no diversity agenda at all? no sexual diversity at all either?Petko Krushev15 giorni faJust finished the last episode of the 5th season, absolutely amazing show. Thank you Drinker for recommending it.authorization batman15 giorni faInteresting how you recommend a show with miles and miles of misandry, and none of the comments talk about that either. This show and it's creators hate men. I mean fucking christ, female marines, female leaders bitching and moaning bossing MEN around every single episode.Peter Smith15 giorni faI'm surprised. I'm a fan of the books but I can't stand the show at all. It's badly written, edited, the dialogue is awful and I can't follow the story even though I know the story. Certain scenes are ridiculous in their levels of nonsense (like that bit when they get to the Roci for the first time and the bullets are exploding all around them like a comedy skit). There's almost never any establishing shots, the ships fly wrong on screen (they should be going up to down NOT left to right following the shows own logic) AND they break their own rules all the time. For example, they make a big deal about high g burns but start burning with panels unscrewed and lying around? Or when they are left adrift in the little shuttle with only "hours of air" left. This would mean they are dead since the closest ship would be days away. And there's lots of stuff like this. It's a cringey, daytime soap which I would not say was written by adults given how baby-level it is. I'm surprised it's a recommendation.Blood Money16 giorni faI love the expanse too and it's really terrible i had just warmed up to the mandalorian until they axed Gina carano so the expanse is all that's left of the not wokeallen murrell16 giorni faQuigley is fucking awesome, Roy!Nick K16 giorni faI couldn't have said it better. It seems a much more likely future for the Human Race than Star Trek (for example) would ever be.Kevin McLaughlin16 giorni faWhat I like about the show is that there's barely a whiff of critical race theory or wokeness about it as Critical Drinker talks of at the end of his video. Yes there is commentary on gender and race, but the show is at great pains to point out that people can be tribal no matter their racial background or gender, which is why you see three main groups that are multiracial, but show culturally discriminatory behaviour toward each other at different points. It's more a commentary on class systems, and maybe even a bit left of me in terms of it's critique of capitalist systems, but I can live with that when it isn't drenched in wokeness, which it very easily could have been. It's great at looking at how realistic, grounded if you'll pardon the pun, and utilitarian people would have to be in space, because if you weren't you'd be dead. None of the aforementioned can be applied to woke leftists who would die almost instantly in space. Although I suppose some of the Martian stuff with Bobbie early doors was a bit I am woman hear me roar and unrealistic in terms of how strong she should be, but they calmed that down a bit, and most of her feats of strength were with her mech/space suit on. Maybe it explains strength differences between the factions better in the books. I know belters are inherently weak from living in zero G, and Martian Marines at least train in low G.Necromonger16 giorni faThis show is right up there with the reimagined Battlestar Galactica, it's dirty and gritty and realistic about the human condition.Nickolas Smith16 giorni faThe special effects are dope toooo.WJ Manning16 giorni faIts a show without SJW BSBassquake16 giorni faA worthy successor to Babylon 5 or Battlestar Galactica (2004)!Filipe Monteiro16 giorni faYou know you have a winner formula when a show ends but, due to its a amazing success, gets picked up by another network.Thanatos13816 giorni faWhat about the Netflix series DARK?

I'm hooked.richtea7817 giorni faI’m thinking he doesn’t know what happened to Cas Anvar!KaMe16 giorni faYeah... Seriously when I watched THAT episode I literally had to pause because I could just not believe what I just saw... Alex was actually my favorite character in the whole show and he got killed off like a BITCH. But worst of all where the reactions (or rather the lack of) of the rest of the crew. Like it seems nobody gave a fuck about his death, like: "Oh shit he's dead. Anyway movin on". I actually think this was the worst death of a character I have EVER seen on screen. And to top it all off the next season will be the last one.... Man this show had so much potential to stay for years to come only to get slaughtered in an instant.Matt Rees17 giorni faDrinker, nice and point-on intro to The Expanse, now put that bottle down (for a minute, hey there are limits I know) and read the books, you will not be disappointed!Jonathan Maner17 giorni faQuigley Down Under is awesome!
