    I'm quite looking forward to this season. I gave up reading the series after book three so it'll finally all be new to me and this show has actually improved season by season

    The first couple of episodes have been excellent and then the Amazon app on my TV stopped working - iPlayer also doesn't work :-( Will install it on the Xbox if I can.

    Old telly? There was a thing on the news that iplayer was being binned from Samsung(I think) tellys that could no longer support it. Or something like that, I didn't pay much heed 'm afraid. Think it may even have been mentioned on the beeb news website.

    My periodic annual leave booking to watch the world burn this time resulted in me waking up so a full season of The Expanse to watch. Perfect.

    It makes me grin every time they switch camera lenses for the Ilus scenes. Really works.

    Oh so that's why they wanted the stealth tech. Christ. What an ending.

    Is that why I get big black borders appearing and disapearing?

    Who cut this trailer? So many lines looked dubbed incredibly badly...

    Still, more Expanse is always welcome, hope they keep the quality going...

    This was the book I didn't think they were going to get to because it would be way too expensive:)

    @General_Martok Yes, really do get back to the books. The whole series is incredibly good and we've got the ninth and final book coming next year.

    @Tricky

    I don't know about the whole series. I hated the book after this one so much that I ended up skipping it.

    @Scimarad Book 4 or Book 6? Not sure if you're using where Martok is as a reference or where the TV series is.

    If book 4 then I can kind of get where people have an issue with it, but personally I thought it was a nice change of pace with some good nods to the overall series arc towards the end. Overall it worked very nicely as a reminder that an alien world truly is alien and has a whole host of issues when a non-indigenous species arrives. Especially when that species can't stop fighting with itself.

    If book 6 then I'd love to know what you thought.

    I think it was Babylon's Ashes that I hated, i.e. the book after the one that served as the basis for upcoming season. Wow, that is confusing.

    It's the one where...I'm actually struggling to remember what it was about to be honest. My central problem was that I couldn't comprehend the choices of certain POV characters as they were siding with arseholes who had wiped out billions of people. Also it was just plain dull.

    Book 3 is Season 3. Book 4 I assume is Season 4 and Book 5 this new season?

    Most of Season 4 on TV was a good but a little slow so I'm not looking forward to it. I really want to be done with Book 5 by the time it's on TV but that's highly unlikely.

    I have 2 months I suppose.

    This looks like book 5 and possibly 6.

    Are there going to be aliens or anything interesting in this one or is it going to be an entire series of having to listen to various, wandering belter accents?

    Because, honestly, I could not give a fuck about an entire series of belter civil war

    I don’t think you’re going to like this season.

    Yeah after season 2, I just read the books. The series just super boring, imo. Didn't either bother to watch the season 3.

    Renewed for season 6, but it will also be the last.

    I'll be intrigued to see what they do with that final season then because either they're going to massively compact 3-4 books (depending on how much of book 6 ends up in season 5) of storyline, or outright change how they wrap it up.

    Ah damn, that's a shame. On a related note does anyone know if I could start at book 5 having only watched the show? I really struggle to read things that I've already watched - especially when there's this much of it, but if the show isn't going to get the full book arc then I'm tempted to switch.
