As you may or may not be aware, this past weekend was NEW YORK COMIC CON! This was my 6th year attending the convention and it was, as always, an absolute blast. I saw quite a few TV-related things during the weekend and thought I’d share some thoughts on those panels and screenings.
In case I haven’t made it painfully obvious in my three-ish years of blogging, I love me a good space opera. There’s not enough of them in the world. So when I was presented with the opportunity for a preview screening of Syfy’s latest attempt at the genre, The Expanse, I jumped on it.
The verdict? I really liked it, but couldn’t summarize the plot for you if my life depended on it. I don’t know if it was the echo-y sound in the room causing me to miss dialogue periodically, my own exhaustion after a long first day of NYCC, the pilot really being that confusing, or all of the above, but I felt like I missed an intro somewhere. The show is slick and has exactly the feel I want from a space opera, but I’m hoping it’ll start making a little more sense going forward.
