Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!
Tonight, the second season of Syfy’s futuristic space drama, The Expanse, takes flight with an exciting 2-hour premiere. In the first season, the ice hauler Canterbury was redirected to answer a distress signal from the freighter Scopuli, and the crew soon found themselves under attack from a stealth ship. As the surviving crew members tried to figure out what happened, they joined forces with a police detective from the asteroid belt, who was looking for Julie Mao, the daughter of a wealthy couple. They soon learned that Julie had become lethally infected while investigating a dangerous new biological weapon. The group then found itself in the wrong place at the wrong time as the mysterious creators of this weapon were performing a large-scale test on the residents of the remote Eros colony. They managed to escape on the Rocinante just as the protomolecule spread across the station, but a couple members of the crew had severe radiation poisoning.
As the second season opens, the fallout from the Eros incident has sent relations between Earth and Mars plummeting and a war is looming. Is there anything that can restore the peace? Who created this bioweapon, and what do they plan to do with it? Is someone purposely trying to cause a rift in the UN? Is there any place safe for the crew of the Rocinante, and what will they do with information they gathered on Eros? Can they stop this protomolecule or find a cure?
I really enjoyed tonight’s 2-hour premiere. It has a great mix of political drama and space/sci-fi action. There are some really interesting developments regarding the UN and the Earth/Mars relationship, we are introduced a whole new crew of Martian characters who will no doubt have a big role in this developing battle/conspiracy, and we also see our gang embarking on an exciting new mission. All of this leads to some pretty exciting moments and even more questions to be answered. I look forward to seeing what developments the rest of the season holds.
On tonight’s premiere, “Safe; Doors & Corners,” James Holden and the crew deal with the aftermath of their escape from Eros in the first half of this combined Season 2 premiere. In the second half, Holden and the crew stage a dangerous raid in search of information about the protomolecule.
See how the group deals with the fallout from the previous season tonight on Syfy 10/9c.
I’ll also be watching/recording Hunted, Criminal Minds, Arrow, The 100, Workaholics, Jeff & Some Aliens, Man Seeking Woman, The Magicians, and Suits.
