News & Interviews for The Expanse: Season 5
Even with the protomolecule saga relatively sidelined this season, "The Expanse" draws so much strength from exposing how fragile an expansive society like this is.
If you can look past some wooden dialogue and stiff acting, however, the new season might be the show's best as an adventure-drama delivery system - the creators have only gotten better at pacing and packaging a taut conspiracy thriller.
There is one series in the vast ocean of television content that is pulling off the grand storytelling ambitions of Game of Thrones. That series is The Expanse.
The Expanse reminds us that life is fragile and power is fleeting, yet at the same time celebrates the ingenuity of mankind. Proper sci-fi drama done brilliantly well.
This moral ambiguity has always been The Expanse's strength, bolstered by a great cast and damned good special effects.
The Expanse's keen understanding of history and politics, combined with its relatively low technology level, has allowed the show to feel about as realistic as science fiction can get.
The Expanse is not Star Wars or Star Trek but something unique and remains the benchmark for science fiction on television.
Season 5 of The Expanse is great TV, and it's great because it makes you think as much as it makes you feel.
From the personal story arcs to the well done social/political themes being woven in, season five of The Expanse is setting up to be another amazing season of sci-fi television!
Audience Reviews for The Expanse: Season 5
2h agoBest sci-fi show I ever watched. Period.
2h agoOnce you saw The Expanse, watching any other avant-garde yet realistic space saga will seem completely ridiculous....that's because the bar is set.
2h agoFinally a good scifi. It's been a while.
20h agoThis is the best Sci Fi show on TV right now, and possibly one of the greatest television series ever made, Season 5 has upped the scale and catch me holding onto the edge of my seat week by week. The Overall story line did minimilize it's focus to just our current Solar System, but still one of the best seasons so far, when it comes to character development, tension, suspense, and questioning the limits of future based space technology. The Expanse is by far my favorite show on tv, and I am thankful that after season 3, we were gifted with season 4, and now 5, I only hope that they continue adapting the book past season 6!
1d agojust WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
1d agoStill the best Sci-fi show on tv, Season 5 is the best yet, not as confusing as the last season and the story is so well put together.
2d agoVery disappointing 5th season. Too much mama drama, multiple barely-connected story lines bordering on soap-opera dullness. No aliens or alien worlds, no protomolecule, and only so-so action. Nothing to spark any interest or fire the imagination. The thrill is gone.
2d agoWhy did this show become a drama? I was hooked after season 1 and all the mystery and intrigue the future held with regards to the sci fi aspect of the story arc. I don't want to watch another boring drama. Why bother with the opulent sets if the story could take place literally anywhere.
3d agoBest Sci-Fi show in years.... The first season is a bit confusing but after a second watch through everything made sense... I can't wait for the next season.
3d agoBrilliant. Every episode leaves you a the knife's edge wondering what is to happen next. Relationships between main characters, all of whom seem well developed and complete, are intense. Great sci-fi, great writing, great cast, great production values, tons of drama and suspense. Best sci-fi show on TV by far at the moment.
