Many years in the future: The experienced police investigator Miller is tasked with the mysterious disappearance of a young woman. The journey takes him through the entire galaxy and makes him cross the path of Jim Holden. What the unequaled duo reveals afterwards, however, is more than just a profane kidnapping: A gigantic conspiracy is under way, in the course of which all humanity is threatened.
I have enjoyed the books so far and I accept the changes in the plot when adapted for TV but something that bothers me is that they dumbed down the (astro)physics. In other words, the TV show is simplistic compared with the books. For example, they don't acknowledge the long time that takes to travel between planets. No sense of the Solar System vastness. It's like if the space ships used 'warp' drives. They don't even mention that some ships don't have an 'Epstein' drive and therefore are slower and less efficient. The same applies for repairs on a ship.
I am not saying that such events should take several episodes but they should show somehow that several hours, days, weeks or months have passed like they showed the time delay in communications (once). In the books children grow up and people get older. Well, at least they said that the reconstruction of Ganymede will take years. Let's not talk about thrust, gravity and physiology because certainly not much can be done with a TV show budget.

Syfy has ordered a 13-episode third season of its space drama series The Expanse for premiere in 2018.
Best Sci Fi show I seen in a long time. Really looking forward to Season 3. Also thanks for having it up on Google Play. Made it really easy to watch with my current school schedule.
This show is so well rounded with everything, Story, Characters, Keeping the science real, keeping how people are real. It's awesome Science Fiction, but it's the best kind .They ground it all by using the profile of human nature. It's how humans have been, are, and will be... I give the expanse a standing ovation and i can't wait until season 3!
I am so glad you gave us this show and will make the season 3. Id only wish for more hype cause this is literally the best sci-fi show of the last decade and one of the best shows on TV right now. It deserves as much watchers as shows like GoT. Thak you.
The Man In The High Castle tanked in the second season because they scraped the short source material into a full blown series. The Expanse, on the other hand, has such a wealth of good stuff to call on that each season feels too short. Slow zone in Season 3? Let's hope they keep the momentum going without pointless stretching like High Castle or BSG.
