    I finally began watching The Expanse.

    And just outright binging it.
    Oh god I love this and everything about it and want all of it forever and ever.
    This is the best sci-fi I have seen in a very long time. It's so good.

    The Expanse TV series is a fantastic adaptation. I'm a big fan of the books and the TV series is basically perfect.

    It helps that they have the book writers heavily involved. And it helps that the book writers see it as a chance to sort of make the story a bit better, given the weird production hell the Expanse series has had. First it was going to be three books, then during the third book it was extended to four, then six, then during the fourth book it was extended to nine.

    Also, the actor for Amos had read all the books prior to auditioning and basically came in and said "I want to be Amos". He's nailed the character so well. They all have, really.

    School keeps me too busy for much recreational reading, sadly. I haven't finished the first book yet, but I plan to work through them. Amos is awesome. Absolutely love Chrisjen tho.

    I also just started watching the series last weekend! I love it and badly want to binge it, but I've had like... a scene or a date or a concert every night this week. But the weekend. It is coming. And when it comes, the binging will follow.

    I'm going through season 2 of Supergirl which is fun but...

    ... was Dean Cain always such a really bad actor? I mean distractingly, holy-shit bad? I remember loving Lois and Clark when I was a kid, this is poisoning my childhood! Sometimes he sounds like he forgets his lines in half-sentence or like he's reading them for the first time, what the hell dude?



  • @Arkandel
    Lois and Clark was one of my favorite shows as a kid and I've rewatched bits of it here and there over the years, so I can say pretty confidently...the answer is, yes. Yes, Dean Cain was always a bad actor. :( It might belong in the 'shows you don't want to rewatch' thread, but it was still fun in an occasionally doofy 90s way.

    Face-punchingly bad.
