Their mission takes them to the edge of the solar system, and to the edge of insanity, as they realize true horror isn't waiting for them in outer space-it's already on their ship.

Goofs

As the ship travels farther and farther from Earth, Karl has regular real-time video calls with his wife on Earth. These calls are instantaneous; at one point he throws something at the screen and she reacts. The ship doesn't travel faster than light, and neither would these transmissions. Even at the distance of Mars, there would be a conversation lag of several minutes, and the ship is much farther away than that. See more »

Event Horizon meets Prometheus, but not in a good way
8 December 2018 | by BLAlleySee all my reviews

It's difficult to understand how a show as exceptional as The Expanse can be cancelled and replaced with dumbed-down schlock such as this. From the start we're already against Humanity not only because we see the outcome but the writers went out of their way to clarify why Humanity does not deserve to survive. On top of that, they have clearly graduated from the School of Having Characters Act Stupidly to Create Conflict. Also, I'm all for stories taking their time, but when you're already doing so over an entire season I see no point in having scenes drag on with long stretches of nothing, particularly when those scenes have little to do with the plot.
