As an overwhelming, vocal fan of The Expanse, I found the quickest way to pitch the show for beginners is by comparing it to Game of Thrones in the Amazon Science-Fiction range that’s one of the best genres for the previous ten years. The Expanse has broad ambitions, like Thrones: 300 years later the rest of the solar system was colonized by humans and divided into three main factions on earth, Mars, and the asteroid Belt (Belters, for short).
But not focusing on the superficial shows – which is easy to achieve given the interplanetary battles in space and the mysterious alien technology that can extinct masses –The expanding scope of the show has always transmitted thinking ideas on humanity.
Many pieces can be put in place to support the process, but people need to sell a story that will take place centuries in the future. Fortunately, one of the most long-lasting TV-Science-Fi series “The Expanse” enters its Season 5, with its cast and crew that have worked like it for over a half-decade.
Without mentioning key events which readers of James S.A.’s book series Coreys have probably anticipated for years, it is difficult to talk about the true scope of Season 5. But it is sufficient to say that from these episodes two people appear as even more indispensable for the show, even if other characters may be at the heart of the events.
The first is Amos (Wes Chatham), the final member of the Roci quartet, whose return to Earth is not only an indication of its previously sparse background but also of its continued history. Chatham was an important part in preventing the 4th season arc from becoming an adventure of wheel-spinning. Amos seeing how geopolitical changes have affected Earth’s lives highlights what is involved when the events are highly focused in this season.
And without any note to Bobbie Draper (Frankie Adams), who is still cementing herself to be one of the foundations of the show, there is no talk of “The Expanse.” In this case, its pursuit of the illegal arms trade is essential In this case, her pursuit of illegal arms trafficking becomes essential in preventing all the various threads of the show.
The series can fulfill the fundamental requirement of science fiction: You guess where the journey ends.
