The Expanse on Syfy

"The Expanse" review by Suzanne 12/14/15
Premieres Monday, December 14, 10/9c on Syfy

The show is set far in the future; we've colonized Mars, but there are warring factions between Earth and Mars. Then there are workers who live in an asteroid belt in between the two and work at transporting air and water to Mars. They are treated badly, even though air and water are very precious.

Most of the first episode takes place in the belt. It's good scifi with compelling characters and story. My only complaint is that it moves kind of slowly. It does draw you in, though, and the ending of the first episode is shocking. I would recommend it to any science fiction or drama fan; hopefully it will start to move faster in later episodes.

MORE INFORMATION:

Set 200 years in the future, The Expanse follows the case of a missing young woman that brings a hardened detective (Thomas Jane, Hung) and a rogue ship’s captain (Steven Strait, Magic City) together in a race across the solar system that will expose the greatest conspiracy in human history. The series is based on the New York Times bestselling book series collectively known as The Expanse, written by Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck (under the pen name James S. A. Corey).

Emmy® winner and Oscar nominee Shohreh Aghdashloo (House of Saddam, House of Sand and Fog) also stars as Chrisjen Avasarala. Rounding out the cast are Dominique Tipper (Vampire Academy), Cas Anvar (Olympus), Wes Chatham (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay) and Florence Faivre (The Following). Paulo Costanzo (Royal Pains), Chad Coleman (The Walking Dead) and Jay Hernandez (Suicide Squad) will appear as guest stars throughout the series’ first season.

Academy Award-nominated screenwriting duo Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby (Alfonso Cuaron’s Children of Men, Iron Man) wrote the pilot and serve as writers, as well as executive producers and showrunners. Executive producer Naren Shankar (CSI, Farscape) joins Fergus and Ostby as showrunners. Award-winning director Terry McDonough (Breaking Bad, Suits, Better Call Saul) directed the first two episodes of the series.

The Expanse is financed and produced by Alcon Television Group (ATG), a division of Alcon Entertainment. Alcon co-founders and co-CEOs Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson serve as executive producers along with former president of Alcon Television Sharon Hall. Alcon Television executive Ben Roberts serves as co-producer. Sean Daniel (Graceland, The Mummy) and Jason Brown of the Sean Daniel Company are executive producers. Ben Cook serves as a producer.
