Frankly I've seen numbers dropping and people forgetting when the series has got their own forum. I don't recommend it. It's a lot of work.
People, who read this stuff and those, who are willing to participate in the conversation. It happened for example with 12 Monkeys. The main thread was over here, and then in on the following days it got split, no readers, no commentators. Over here, in the one or two threads, it's much better and people can see easily that it has been successful. The only problem that they need solve, if they want to participate into the conversation is how to use the spoiler button.
Individual episodic threads should be done from the very beginning of the series. Not after several seasons. And it is a lot of work to make them, try to make the reviews and then try to keep the conversation going.
In this single thread the Expanse can grow easier than in the individual threads, and the chances are, it will gain more attention. If you don't believe me, browse those individual forums dedicated to the series and you'll see the evidence of how these conversations die.
. I am a bit surprised that among science fiction readers, contrasted to viewers of movies and TV (of which there seems a much bigger number) there is not more discussion of The Expanse. (I mean does make its appearance here, but on other SF forums, seems missing.)
File 770 , can't figure if it's been talked about there, Galactic Journey is Expanse friendly but the worldline structure keeps it out of discussion, can't figure if its been of SF Bluestocking or not, have not tried all the SF fan sites, it does have a following on Facebook....Well, SFFChronicles isn't as big as it used to be and most of the people are afraid talking, when they see Authors or then it's something else. What other forums do you mean?

Thank you, but those three are blogs, not forums. What I class as a forum is like for example a SFFChronicles style bulletin board system (BBS). FB or Twitter are neither, and you really cannot get a good conversation going in there. There is of course Reddit's r/theexpanse, which is kind of forum and a chat system, and hugely more popular than our stuff in here.
I don't always agree with you POV but your reviews are always excellent and in depth.
Won a Hugo for 2017 , but weirdly, the better season 2 , was not nominated. That was just nuts.Just to let you know, The Expanse now does finally have its own Chronicles Forum. The long main thread has been split into episodes and other discussions such as comparison to the books, why no Hugo awards,and how realistic it really is.
I think this would be better in that episode thread, so I will copy it to there and add a spoiler here. No criticism implied, but there are people in the UK who are only just now beginning to watch this series via Amazon Prime and it is difficult to cater to everyone's needs.Over on YouTube Molly Bee has a video essay about Episode 5 of Season 2
