Anyone watching this space opera TV show based on Leviathan Wakes and the subsequent Expanse stories? Pretty good so far. You can watch the first 4 episodes on the Syfy channel's website:

I finished watching the first 4 episodes of this show and it's fantastic. Can't wait for more.

Just wondering if anyone else has watched this. It's a really great show.

Finished the last episode of The Expanse season 1. Pretty exciting show. Can't believe I have to wait a whole year for season 2.

I've heard a lot of good things, but I don't know how to actually watch this in the UK.

I thought the first episode was confusing due to the poor writing, but I have to say I'm intrigued enough to keep watching.

I stopped watching after episode 4. Just because I had no real urge to.

I think it's probably harder to follow if you haven't read the books. I read all the books quite a while ago. I thought the TV series was good.

The books are definitely worth reading and include quite a bit more detail.

Just finished the first book. Haven't watched the series yet, but I'm curious about it. Do you recommend finishing the book series first?

Watched a couple of episodes (i have not read the books) and wasn't drawn in. Something about the dialog, interior sets (exterior FX is quite good) and acting made me start to question why I was still watching and sure enough I gave up. I really like the premise though and believe if the production had a different feel I'd be a regular viewer.

Not necessarily. Though I personally have read all the books and novellas associated with The Expanse universe.
