News & Interviews for The Expanse: Season 2
The show's epic scope... remains intact, as well as its always impressive production values and effects. But there's more focus to the first four episodes of the season than expected, thanks to more of the characters uniting in proximity to similar goals.
Should you watch The Expanse? I would say, "Hell Yeah!," and give it 4.5 stars out of 5.
The show's scope is contracting rather than expanding. And a series I liked with reservations has become one I enjoy more or less completely.
I happen to be someone who likes this sort of thing, but The Expanse season two is a much better version of that thing now that everyone knows what's up and can take action accordingly.
If well-researched science fiction is your bag, season two of The Expanse is sure to thrill, confound, and delight in equal measure. Just make sure you're paying attention.
Its willingness to mix up tones, and even its protagonists, has been laudable. The writers have reached a point where you can tell they feel completely confident in the world they've created and can do whatever they choose within it.
Audience Reviews for The Expanse: Season 2
The writing and acting pitfalls from Season 1 unfortunately continued into this season. On the other hand, the characters got a bit more complex and the story became a bit more exciting. They better up their game in Season 3!!
