The Expanse

Okay, that was pretty good.

But you killed the crew from explosive decompression, twice, in the first four episodes.  Also, your economics are skewed from reality in several places - by about three orders of magnitude.  Try harder next season, SyFy.

I haven't read the books, and the story moves at a fair clip, but if you have a passing familiarity with hard SF you'll have no trouble picking the threads up.  (One useful tip is that there are a few scenes where you won't understand what's being said, and aren't meant to - it's a made-up language.  Don't worry about it.)

It's nice to see a science fiction series where the most outre element* is a fusion reactor.

If you're looking for classic but not necessarily hard SF, SyFy also recently did this:

Reviews are, shall we say, mixed.  I'm not sure why they picked that particular story to adapt; it would have to be one of the hardest works of science fiction to bring intact to television.

And why call it the "Season 1 Trailer"?  Spoiler alert for a sixty-year-old book: There ain't gonna be a Season 2.

* At least, so far.

3 Rick, that would be a bit difficult. At the end of the book, all the adults die in an atomic blast!

4 They got better!

(I think the adults had all died out by the end of the book, but they blew up the planet anyway.)

5 Steven, I didn't watch the show, and I haven't read the book in 30+ years.

They provide insight into the psychology behind cancel culture and offer practical solutions for individuals and organizations to move beyond it. With cancel culture becoming increasingly prevalent in our society, this book provides valuable guidance for anyone who may be targeted by cancel culture in the futureSkyhorse Publishing
