Expanding the Scope // The Expanse Season 2 Review

No doubt, The Expanse if the best science fiction / space opera on television these days. While other premises, like Falling Skies or Stargate Universe chose to focus on the drama, and less on the space, The Expanse, based on the series of novels by the same name, went full-on space adventures, and it is gorgeous. 747 more words
