One Reason to Look Forward to 2017 …

YAY! Bobby!

… will already appear in January. Yesyes, I know Orca turns 10 … but no, that’s not what I mean. I’m so excited because Syfy will start broadcasting season 2 of The Expanse, one of the bestest SciFi TV productions ever. I’ve already binge read all the Expanse novels but for a visual freak like me it’s somehow not the same.

There are already 3 trailers available on YT … and this  fluffy “documentary” or “behind the scenes” about season 2.

As I wrote earlier I guess we can look forward to higher production values, hopefully some better acting and altogether a better rounded product. The Expanse is the Syfy channel’s chance to escape the stigma of their trademark ultra cheap and senseless 3rd rate movies and TV shows.

If any of Syfy’s productions ever had what it takes to get the channel out of its ghetto it’s doubtlessly The Expanse. Me, as intimate pundit of humanity’s future saga, am just curious about how well they put of the new characters and how closely they manage to follow the greater storyline.

That bitch is dead

So far, Season 1 left us kinda in the middle of the first Expanse novel, Leviathan Wakes, and I guess Syfy must hurry up a bit not to lose contact to the story.

Finally we get to see Mars Marine Sgt. Bobby Draper!

Oh, didn’t I say there were 3 trailers available to wet your appetite? Let me quickly find them in YouTube’s grab bag …

… aaaand number three!

Mars marines

Guys, this is – apart from all the usual TV bullshit – the closest and most realistic projection of our species’ nearer future. It’s all pretty logical and makes sense. I hope you’re as excited as I am. 🙂
