    Watched the first two episodes. So far, pretty solid and entertaining. I have the books on my list. They're probably going to get a bump up now.

    ive watched the first 4 and liked them, the production value isnt the best and sometimes and you can tell its a syfy show

    but overall it is a big step up from the normal syfy shows

    Didnt realize they're doing a 2hr finale. Im ok with it. They burned through these fast. Next season is 13 episodes instead of 10, so that's cool

    Anyone else get a Halo/Flood vibe whenever they were on the ship?

    Like the video game? I dont game, so no. However the protomolecule looks pretty damn cool and close to how I pictured it.

    Me neither, but I played Halo back in 2004 or so. Halo spoilers below about that scene.

    In halo the main plot is a typical war against aliens, but there's a huge plot twist halfway through the game where they stumble on some dead bodies and some life forms that are basically leeching off of them called the Flood. The whole scene is pretty eerie and suspenseful. The scene in this episode made me think of it, when whatever that stuff was starting to glow. I doubt it's some alien race but it reminded me of Halo

    Really surpassed my expectations of what the show was going to be. Never read the books, so didn't know any of the story going in. Pretty excited for S2

    had been meaning to get around to finishing this so I binged the whole thing today. loved it, can't wait for season two.

    there was one scene from Leviathan Wakes that I was really hoping for, but I understand why they couldn't do it from a budget standpoint.

    What was that scene?
    I read the books (as part of the TMB book club) and then kept going until the series ended, but there were so many parts that they couldn't do, financially/practically/etc.

    Dammit! I can't believe I missed it.
    I liked all of the Avasarala that I was seeing in the previews, she was far and away my favorite character in the book (well, maybe Bobbie).

    Really hard not to be a book douche itt, but that's not at all how I pictured the protomolecule. Wasn't it described as a black/tar kind of substance, or am I making that up?

    Not a big deal. Thought these first two eps were great. Excited for the rest of the season.

    I haven't read the books (yet) so I have no idea, but I do follow James S.A. Corey (which I think Ty primarily runs) on Twitter and I've seen him discuss visual sort of changes before. Mainly that they do some changes just to catch viewers' attention even if it doesn't make much sense scientifically or align with what is in the book. So maybe the protomolecule was a victim of those changes.

    I'm enjoying this show immensely. I can't remember the last time I tuned in to SyFy to follow a show, maybe when Stargate was ending? I don't know. This show is pretty dang solid as far as Sci Fi television goes though.

    I've been enjoying the Belter slang, btw. They did better with the hand motions and the vocab than I thought they would've.

    I hate to continue to be a book douche, but they're doing so well honoring the books.

    Still wish the belters were elongated like in the books, but I get why they can't be.

    OK, book people - just got around to watching last night's episode on dvr - was that the first chapter of book 3 that we just saw? Or was it the first chapter of book two and they introduced Bobbi a łot earlier in the show than in the books?
