    I wouldnt be surprised if we creep into Nemesis Games this season. Cibola is slower paced. Wouldnt shock me to see some stuff cut out or merged together

    I hate rereading stuff but i think I might reread Cibola Burn before S4 starts

    Too bad Havelock is busy being Magnum P.I or whatever, would've been cool to see his character back.

    Are you talking about the first season where they shot a pipe through his chest? He lived through that.

    Are we going to get to watch this for free right away as a part of Prime or will we have to wait?

    Last season was the end of Abaddons Gate. I’d assume most of Cibola Burn. It’s a slower paced book so maybe they bring forward some stuff from Nemesis Games too

    I can probably knock out three in two months if I extend my poop breaks to a full twenty minutes and a mandatory two per day.

    I haven’t read the books. Does the content for Cibola Burn make for a good season?

    It's probably the weakest of the books, but is in no way lacking for crazy shit.

    If they throw precursor Nemesis Games stuff in there, along with the Cibola Burn story line, this is gonna be nuts.

    The Expanse series is structured into 3 trilogies/ big story arcs.

    The show just finished the first one. Basically establishing the alien ring ect.

    The next book is a bit of a reset. It’s slower paced to do some table setting. Not much action but really good. I expect they bring some stuff forward from boom 5 because that is all action.

    I hope they dont go crazy with their fat Amazon money. Part of what I like about the show is that it's not low budget but it's not exactly game of thrones either

    All the excitement and 'water cooler' discussion fizzle out over a weekend, instead of week to week. As a fan of the show that still needs to grow a fan base, the continual buzz over two months only helps to grow the viewership imo.

    I’ve only watched on amazon so I’ve enjoyed the F-bombs

    Are they even more pervasive in the new season?

    She tells Holden in one of the episodes to not stick his dick into some situation because it's already been fucked enough

    So I would say yes

    The first 3 seasons were all on Syfy so I dont think there was a lot of cussing. I dont remember any F bombs tbh. In the book she cusses like a trucker, in the best way. Only half way into ep 1 and she's even more flowery. She's one of my fave characters and I love it.

    there’s definitely been f-bombs in first few seasons

    That’s cool if they made it more true to the character, and both the character and her acting are among the best parts of the show

    Really my only complaint is that I wanted to know more about the protomolecule race and the one they were fighting. We barely know much more than we did at the end of the first season, beyond the timescale we are talking about.

    Also where the fuck did the metal locusts come from really?

    I feel like I missed some details by watching it so quickly
