There were a couple of FX moments in the beginning when it wasn't looking that good, but overall the show pulled it together and the FX were pretty good. I didn't think I was going to like it and I enjoyed the heck out of it.

Way better than Jessica Jones for sure. I'm excited to see the second episode. After one episode of Jessica Jones I didn't care one way or the other.

Just happy for people to begin thinking about asteroid mining and the political ramifications of space colonization.

"There's something you should know...," those are pregnant words.

I'll keep this thread open, I'm sure they will figure out what the problem is later today. It's an auto DMCA.

I read the first two books. Enjoyed the heck out of them. I just started the 3rd book. Not sure I liked the idea of expanding beyond our solar system. I thought that could have been the strongest point of the series -- the focus on our solar system and the politics of our system.

I thought it was decent, if it lasts long enough I'm curious to see how they'll handle the third book. The first two books were good but I thought the third one sucked and stopped reading it about halfway through.

e: Not purely Sci-Fi but Into the Badlands has been pretty good so far. The action scenes are some of the best I've seen recently. No cheap cutting after every hit like most shows and movies have done lately. I'd put it up there with good movie quality fight scenes.

For example:

O hay~ the doc @ 14:00 is the same actor that played that one kid who got really smart when he smoked weed in Roadtrip, right?

Glad to see that prodigy is still making do.

Watched this one twice, enjoyed it both times. I can't wait for the rest of the series. I am totally spoiled by being able to binge though. Going to be tough to wait for a new episode every week.

Duh, the Belter language didn't bother me in the books, but for a non-english speaking person the dialogue was really hard to follow - probably it's just me but this is the first time I had to stop watching because I couldn't follow properly.

Sigh, guess I have to wait to get subtitles. There's a first for everything :P

I speak english and honestly I thought it was an alien language that didn't have subs... I didn't understand any of it. Very annoying for a tv show.

It is an alien language that doesn't have subs. They did that on purpose to try to make the viewer feel like they are an "outsider". I'm not a fan of that any time I see it in a movie. You see it all the time in westerns.

Dunno, on the pages of a book you could dig in to it at your own pace. As I speak a bit Spanish I could understand enough to make sense of it. And when certain expressions are repeated enough and you start understanding all that little by little.

On a screen everything happens so fast that it's really hard. And when your ears have to do the extra work with English as it's not the native language, it got a bit frustrating. But as said, subs should correct this issue

ok so I wasn't crazy. I'm ok with this as long as the following dialogue dissects it in casual discussion, but they didn't do that... there's a whole scene in there with a murder and all I got was something about an arm... I find this very annoying.

other than that, I hate how good he looks in a fedora... why can't I look that good in one... uhg

it was enjoyable enough that I'm grabbing the audiobooks to listen to at work, I'm intrigued.
