Okay.....

I decided to rewatch the first episode and give it a second chance.

And it turns out that I did not see the first episode last week.... I watched episode nine of the first season....

So it was no wonder that it did not make much sense. There was no story beginning, nor explanation of the setting, nor character introduction... I thought it was the worst starting point for anything I'd ever seen.

I do not know how I started with episode nine... but you can now understand my disbelief at how people liked this show.

You see!

The protomolecule was messing with you and you didn't even know it.

I think it's worth watching. I think the co-authors were quite heavily involved in the story, which sticks to the books it covers very well. I didn't think it was "brilliant" as others did, but I think its an above average piece of TV Science Fiction.

The effects are excellent and I liked the flawed characters, although I found Holden to be quite tiresome near the end.

I think you'll find it's "Ingerlund" my good sir.

I watched the first season and gave up. Nothing really made me stop; it just didn't grip me particularly. I expect that the right viewer would really enjoy The Expanse. It's certainly worth a look.

UPDATE

Okay, so originally I watched episode ten of season one.... and it was the worst pilot I've ever seen.

So... in order to give The Expanse a chance, I began watching from the real beginning, Season One, Episode One.

Let me give a few thoughts...

SPOILER ALERT
This is a summary of the first two and a half seasons....
I could rename it, A Game of Protomolecules... starring Jon Snow, Indira Stark, and Popeye Doyle. Jon Snow is Jon Snow. If you watched A Game of Thrones, then you'll know that there is only about two seasons you can take. He has his Ygritte, a Belter (a Wildling), living beyond the Belt. Anyway, Jon and Ygritte, along with Rooster (Goose's son) and Chewbacca, steal the Millenium Falcon and ride around saving the universe from the protomolecule. Unknown to them, Popeye chases the protomolecule from the other side while Lady Indira Stark plays the Game of Thrones on Earth. Jon and Popeye team up and figure out that Dr. Pierre Chang from the Dharma Initiative is controlling the protomolecule and moving the location of the Island. Dr. Chang's daughter, Arya, tried to stop his nefarious plan but is consumed by the protomolecule and telepathically seduces Popeye to join the protomolecule. Dr. Chang kidnaps Jean Valjean's daughter, in order to turn her into River Tam. But Jon and Jean Valjean save the girl while Brienne of Tarth battles the protomonster. Chewie destroys the Dharma Initiative. Once, Lady Stark finally meets Brienne, she's able to win the Game of Thrones. But Dr. Juliet Burke from LOST shows up and bores the three powers in the solar system (Earth, Mars, and Fred Johnson) into peace. Then Dr. Chang's other daughter, Sansa, vows revenge upon Jon Snow.
