The CGI may be sharper and the look of the show may be more cinematic, but the show feels essentially the same at the core. We get some new sets, but the heart of the show -- politics in space -- remains intact.

The Expanse looks better than ever. Production values feel bumped up, the direction is more artistic and, most importantly, the illusion of the brand new planet of New Terra is utterly believable.

The biggest differences as The Expanse transitions from Syfy to Amazon is that episode lengths vary a bit (all an hour-ish or less) and the characters get to swear a lot more. But other than that, it's the same show. Thanks, Jeff Bezos!

The Expanse is a must-see sci-fi drama. It has found a suitable home with Prime, one that seems very happy to give this phenomenal story the love it deserves.

Evocative and mysterious, "New Terra" is a wonderful re-introduction to The Expanse's slow-burn storytelling, and proof that a new home hasn't fundamentally changed television's best science fiction series.

[S]mart and immersive as ever.

In an age of peak television when everyone keeps asking what the true successor to Game of Thrones is, The Expanse has managed to become precisely that, though with far less fanfare than its fantasy-based counterpart at HBO.

The Expanse Season 4 is a revival done right, and one that will keep you enthralled as you try to speculate where things are going.

The Expanse explodes off the screen with high sci-fi drama and action in order to tell us a big, fat, epic love story.

The Season 4 premiere "New Terra" was just as brilliant as I anticipated. It was rife with breathtaking visuals, Avasarala's snarky expletive-laced one-liners, new supporting characters and a new planet ready for exploration

The Expanse is living and thriving, and that's very good news.

The Expanse acts as a handy litmus test because it is plot-heavy science fiction about terraforming and gravity sickness and alien architecture, but it also has one of the most racially diverse casts on TV, and it's explicitly about colonialism

While political squabbles aren't the most fascinating part of the narrative, the wild wild west dynamic really ramps up the tension.

"The Expanse" takes it as an opportunity to reinvent itself as needed and preserve what's worked all along. It's a show that spends plenty of time dissecting the complications with changes in the very nature of gravity.

What's particularly impressive about The Expanse is, though the plots sometimes go all over the place, you'll reach a point where you suddenly realize you love these characters.
December 13, 2019
This series is stunning in all the right ways.
December 13, 2019
There's a livewire running throughout the [first six episodes] and while nothing has boiled over yet the tensions between the characters and their warring factions sizzle with intensity.
December 12, 2019
This is a complicated galaxy full of complicated people, and as they've grown, The Expanse has only gotten smarter, stronger, and more addictive.
