    So take twenty seconds, click on a link, and add your 2c to help keep a decent show afloat. There's LOTS of 'streaming' shows that air on upper cable tiers in Canada.

    My $0.02 won't make a bit of difference.

    Regarding The Expanse supposedly being picked up by Amazon....let's not count the chickens before they're hatched....


    @chf
    @flyerhawk
    @Cave_Johnson
    @Nasty_Magician
    @wildturkey


    ......it's not quite yet a done deal....

    https://news.avclub.com/amazon-decides-to-revive-the-expanse-proving-that-airp-1826210325


    .....but it does look very promising!

    https://www.change.org/p/amazon-or-...ghts-to-the-expanse-savetheexpanse/u/22774899


    Hopefully the final details of the negotiation will be worked out.... and If all goes well, then we will have The Expanse on Amazon for sure.

    I saw this news yesterday and I'm praying that it happens. Seeing where they look like they are going to end this season, Season 4 has SO MUCH potential. While the first couple books after what happens in Venus weren't my favorites of there was so much to work from given their willingness to go off the source material.

    Speaking of this season, great episode last week and this week's looks to be huge. Couple of spoilers below.

    So does everyone agree that we are going to have a Miller sighting at the end of the this season?

    Sounds like The Expanse deal is close to happening.

    If that article is true, Bezos is a big fan of the books and was pissed they didn't get the rights to the book in the first place.

    This could be really huge for the show. If Amazon tries to make this their prestige SciFi show they are going to put a ton of money into it.

    The nice thing about the Amazon version of The Expanse (as well as DVD/BluRay versions), is that we get all the uncut/uncensored episodes instead of the censored Syfy Channel versions.

    UN Deputy Undersecretary Avasarala is much more cooler in her uncensored glory. She reminds me of the Queen of Thorns, Olenna Tyrell from Game of Thrones. Both characters speak their minds, and are not afraid to tell it like it is, but they are also very politically savvy and clever.

    Here are some uncensored Avasarala scenes:

    Thought this was funny.

    A fan raised 5000 bucks on gofundme to hire an airplane to fly over Amazon with 'Save the Expanse' on a banner.

    FTR, this season has been absolutely amazing. REALLY REALLY good.

    They have done a great job of changing plot points to make the books more TV friendly while still sticking to the story.

    The show just gets better and better. Haven't watched last night's episode yet but last week's was fantastic. They did a GREAT job with the slow zone and the space station.
