I'm a post-apocalyptic sci-fi buff, so The Bad Batch has been beckoning me for some time. Speaking of which, just wrapped up Into the Badlands season 2 and sincerely wonder why I stopped watching while AMC was first airing it. Other than the perpetual over-the-top martial arts cheese factor, I found it quite bingeable ... kind of like Mad Max meets Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon with a twist of feudal system. The missus and I just discovered The Mighty Boosh on Prime Video, which is absurdly hilarious and will likely become "our show" for the next few weeks of evening TV.

First 2 are currently on (UK) Netflix and I'd assume the third will be up at some point.

The "Save the Expanse" hype is slightly confusing to me. It's a pretty decent show but not the best thing since sliced bread. I wasn't terribly upset when it was cancelled and don't care enough about it to pay for an Amazon subscription!

I wouldn't say it's the best thing since sliced bread, but of today's current crop of sci-fi shows, it's easily one of my favourites. Pretty happy to see it saved, although I'm not sure if Amazon will be worth it considering I already have Netflix and Crave. How many streaming services does one person really need?

Yeah. It's far from bad and I enjoyed the first 2 seasons. Just not enough to pay for a second streaming service.

I actually bought the first Expanse book and started reading it. Mostly because Warren Ellis apparently read all the series and if he has time for it, then I shall do too.

I like the series (just saw the first 2 seasons), glad it'll keep existing. And I even have a Prime account, that is mostly used to get cooking books or diapers fast, as their selection and user interface are just mehrghblrp.

Are the books any good?

I'll probably just get all the books to finish the story tbh, prefer reading anyway.

I've got the Audiobooks, because I forgot to cancel my Audible account and they're great. Honestly, the show takes about 3-4 episodes for all the subplots to get properly underway - by season 2 it's a very compelling watch. That being said, it's nice to see the actors and production crew take the series seriously and give a real shit about it.

I've watched all of the first two seasons and don't get me wrong I really enjoyed it and hope the third season comes on Netflix at least, I just don't like anything enough to pay for an extra streaming subscription :lol:

All you need to do is join the capitalist wonderland that is Amazon Prime and the video streaming is an afterthought. :joy: :poke:

I just read the first 20% or so of the first book so far. It's not extremely well written (compared to books that I read recently from people like Jeff VanderMeer) but it's not bad either. And the story so far is basically what's in the series but with much more insight into the main characters (Holden and Miller so far). The exposition of the different characters is also sometimes qwuite different from the series and it's always interesting to read the book after the movie/series and see the choices the directors/showrunners made regarding that. Anyway, I like it and if it stays that way I'll probably get the next one.
