Amazon Prime saves “The Expanse”….

Today, I heard some truly terrific news that I’d like to take this opportunity to share wi– — um, yes, er, of course, Madame Undersecretary. * ahem * A couple weeks ago, I had the intense displeasure of writing this post: SyFy cancels “The Expanse,” and the grieving begins… Then today, I heard this: Via cinemablend.com…

SyFy cancels “The Expanse,” and the grieving begins…

I’ll admit; I’m a Johnny-come-lately to “The Expanse” party, and I’ve not read the books yet, either.  But I’m a sincere, devoted and passionate fan of this TV series, and it has filled the hole in my heart that’s existed ever since reimagined “Battlestar Galactica” ended its run in 2009…a hole that even BSG’s spinoff…

My long relationship with science-fiction television…

The way it was. When I was a kid there was an emergent wave of science fiction and fantasy films in the multiplexes.  “Star Wars,” “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” and “Superman: The Movie,” as well as countless lesser-quality imitators of each, such as “Starcrash” (an exceptionally awful movie), “Hangar 18” (a dumbed-down “X-Files”…

Personal Favorites of 2017

Just want to begin by saying that for this year’s favorites list, I’m going to get away from numerical or other arbitrary values (same way I won’t give ‘thumbs up’ or 1-5 star ratings, etc).  So unlike last year’s list, I’m not going to do rankings.  Just a list. I also recognize that there are many…

Tiptoeing into “The Expanse”…

“The Expanse” is a SyFy channel series that premiered in 2015, and is based on a book series by James S. A. Corey (which I’ll confess I’ve never read, let alone heard of till recently). When the show first premiered, I was intrigued by the promotional material I’d seen at Comic Con 2015; the series…
