This week’s episode of SyFy’s The Expanse, “Triple Point”, finds our crew preparing to storm Io and rescue Prax’s daughter by force, only to find a sizable portion of both Earth and Mars’ fleets converging upon them. The final 15 minutes of this episode might well be the most tense The Expanse has ever been. Meanwhile, Jules-Pierre Mao and Dr. Strickland make a break through, Alex gets another missive from home, Amos is really worried about what he and his fellow crew members’ hi-jinks are doing to poor Prax, Avasarala lies, and James and Naomi find common ground. Next week promises to be amazing, see you then!
“Reload”, the latest installment of SyFy’s The Expanse, is an accurate title for the episode, as the Rocinante gets creative in order to literally reload itself, while our favorite characters spend the episode positioning themselves for their next act, metaphorically reloading the show. Meanwhile, we ask the important questions; what is Red Kibble made of? Why did Amos show up late to the bullet party? And is The Expanse shipping Bobby and Alex?! All this plus lots of feedback including Reddit delivering on the promise of Martian blue grass!
The latest episode of SyFy’s The Expanse, “Assured Destruction” could be subtitled: “When Amos Meets Bobby”, because that happened, and it’s pretty awesome. After that, we have to content ourselves will small potato stuff like interplanetary nuclear brinksmanship, child experimentation, evil admirals, and the deaths of millions. Snooze! Then things pick back up when Alex makes Naomi some love lasagna. We also got some interesting feedback from actual jet pilots and physicists among others to take us and The Expanse to some light task about our discussion of high G and Amos related physics. I don’t care what the scientists say, Amos can defy gravity. See ya next week!
A.Ron and Jim can feel the g-forces as the latest episode of SyFy’s The Expanse continues to accelerate in “IFF”. More awesome, clever space action sequences, some great character development with Prax, Bobby, and Chrisjen, and a deft introduction to a new character, Anna, combine to entertain and intrigue. Is Errinwright about to be at the end of his rope? Is Mao more of a softy than he initially let on? Will the combined crews of the Rocinante and Razorback be able to turn the tide of war? Find out with us next week!
Jim and A.Ron are very impressed with the premiere of the third season of SyFy’s The Expanse, “Fight or Flight”. Great special effects and even better writing, much depends on the complex balance of politics across the solar system, and between the crew of the Rocinante Pinus Contorta. Anytime you can mix great drama with spectacular action sequences you’ve got a hit in our books, and we’re thrilled to have The Expanse back in our lives!
Jim and A.Ron talk about the upcoming season three of SyFy’s The Expanse. We talk about our experience with the show (and Jim’s recent experience reading the first three books in the series by James S. A. Corey) and our thoughts about where we left off last season and where we think we’re headed. Other topics include our spoiler policy, our favorite characters, the Rocinante’s power level, and much more.
Today we’re here to talk about the 2004 SyFy reimagined Battlestar Galactica. Jim loves this series, I have problems with it. Still, we talk for nearly two hours and find what we think will be a lot of common ground with any fan of the show. Despite my misgivings I do recognize it’s quality and importance to Sci-Fi in general. So say we both. Special thanks to our intrepid community of commissioners who made this podcast possible.

Jim and A.Ron discuss their feelings about SyFy’s season two of The Expanse. Should you be watching it? What worked? What didn’t? What are our hopes and fears for season three?
Cecily stops by the studio to chat with A.Ron about HBO’s Girls two episodes into the final season (00:03:12), and then both sing praises about the resurgence of FX’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’s twelfth season (00:21:51). Also, shhh… don’t tell anyone, but we’re watching SyFy’s The Expanse! (00:38:06)
