I just did today. If you haven't seen it yet you may wanna skip this discussion.

I see Amazon has ordered a season 4 so YAAAY.











What do you think about Bobbie on the Rocinante? Did she retire, or is she taking leave? She wasn't in uniform. I don't think that last incident would be on her since the other woman acted without orders, although she was in lead and therefore responsible for their safety.

I think her and Alex make a good couple. Although I like almost all the characters I WAS happy Diogo got the shaft. Annoying little twerp got even more annoying with the face tattoos

Thoughts? Anyone but 6ix, that is.

Wow. You burned through 3 seasons of that show pretty fast.

Was season 3 any good?

Hubby has been on vacay since last Friday. Yeah, I would say that there really aren't any quality issues from making the jump from Syfy to Amazon, other than the third season had less jokes. I'm really interested in where they will go with season 4 as they have 1300 new avenues to go with. It's worth the dough.

I peeked into the Future. Bobbie is retired, working in Veterans Outreach, and back on Mars in the fourth book. The TV show in the fourth year might also have her back on Mars, at least temporarily.

From The Expanse #4 - Cibola Burn - Prologue: Bobbie Draper

A thousand worlds, Bobbie thought as the tube doors closed. And not just a thousand worlds. A thousand systems. Suns. Gas giants. Asteroid belts. Everything that humanity had spread to, a thousand times over. The screen above the seats across from her showed a newsfeed, but the speakers were broken, the man’s voice too fuzzed to make out the words. The graphic that zoomed in and out beside him was enough for her to follow. New data had come in from the probes that had gone through the gates. Here was another image of an unfamiliar sun, circles to mark the orbits of new planets. All of them empty. Whatever had built the protomolecule and fired it toward Earth back in the depths of time wasn’t answering calls anymore. The bridge builder had opened the way, and no great gods had come streaming through.

It was astounding, Bobbie thought, how quickly humanity could go from What unimaginable intelligence fashioned these soul-wrenching wonders? to Well, since they’re not here, can I have their stuff?

I actually got into the show because of a discussion with Second sometime in spring of 2017. I was watching it in small bits and pieces during the summer since it was really busy with the move last year. I can't remember where I left off, but I do think that I finished the 2nd season.

Overall, it was a pretty good show I thought. It might actually even be better than I give it credit for though since I didn't have the time to really indulge and binge watch like I prefer to when watching a show like that.


I wasn't even aware that Amazon had picked it up. That's really cool that some of these shows are getting a second life because of places like Netflix and Amazon. Maybe there's still some hope that they could get the Dark Matter crew back together before they're too tied up with other obs.

Glad to hear the quality didn't really suffer after the move.











Sorry to go off topic, but since we're on the topic of shows being raised from the dead... did anybody watch Deadwood's original run?

That show was amazing, IMO. It wasn't necessarily ended on a bad note, but just rather anti-climactic. They said they intended the last few episodes to lead up to a movie, but it never happened. That being the case, I always thought it was a shame they didn't just end the show a few episodes earlier after a huge dramatic conflict and just let the viewers decide in their own minds where it went from there.

Long story short, and I'll believe it when I see it, but I just got word from my brother that after all of these years they've finally greenlit the Deadwood movie that was promised a decade ago.

For the first time in ages I'm actually excited about a movie that's coming.

Do Right, Be Right. :)

*sigh* So much for encouraging a little conversation with Second around


I would sell every last thing I owned, including the shirt off my back to be able to go to another planet where one could wander unimpeded for the rest of my days. Naked, since I sold the shirt

On that note, a close relative just did one of those DNA tests and we came up 15% Romanian/Bulg/Yugo/Hungarian. Maybe I am part Gypsy and that would finally explain why I want to pack up and leave every six months. Or more...

Your idea of a conversation, like too many people, is to tell us all about yourself. 15% Romanian/Bulg/Yugo/Hungarian? The Universe does not care about trivial and personal. Miller told Holden that in the TV show, but that is a much shorter version than in the book of Miller’s final conversation with Holden:

“And there are worlds like this on the other side of all those gates?”

“Some of them, maybe. Who knows?” Miller turned to face Holden again, his blue eyes eerie and full of secrets. “Someone fought a war here, kid. One that spanned this galaxy and maybe more. My team lost, and they’re all gone now. A couple billion years gone. Who knows what’s waiting on the other side of those doors?”

“We’ll find out, I guess,” Holden replied, putting on a bold front but frightened in spite of himself.

“Yeah, well let’s not get too happy,” Miller said. “I keep warning you. Doors and corners, kid. That’s where they get you. Humans are too fucking stupid to listen. Well, you’ll learn your lessons soon enough, and it’s not my job to nursemaid the species through the next steps.”

“So,” Holden said after a few minutes of quiet sky watching. “Thanks for the visit. I guess I’d better be getting back to my gunfight.”

“Not done with you,” Miller said. The tone was light, but the words were ominous.

“Okay.”

“I wasn’t built to fix shit humanity broke,” Miller said. “I didn’t come here to open gates for you and get the lockdown to let you go. That’s incidental. The thing that made me just builds roads. And now it’s using me to find out what happened to the galaxy-spanning civilization that wanted the road.”

“Why does that matter now, if they’re all gone?”

“It doesn’t,” Miller said with a weary shrug. “Not a bit. If you set the nav computer on the Roci to take you somewhere, and then fall over dead a second later, can the Roci decide it doesn’t matter anymore and just not go?”

“No,” Holden said, understanding and finding a sadness for this Miller construct he wouldn’t have guessed was possible.

“We were supposed to connect with the network. We’re just trying to do that, doesn’t matter that the network’s gone. What came up off of Venus is dumb, kid. Just knows how to do one thing. It doesn’t know how to investigate. But I do. And it had me. So I’m going to investigate even though none of the answers will mean fuck-all to the universe at large.”

“I understand,” Holden said. “Good luck, Miller, I—”

“I said I’m not done with you.”

Holden took a step back, suddenly very frightened about where this might be going. “What does that mean?”

“It means, kid, that I’ll need a ride.”

Glad to see that Second is just as good as playing with others as he is with me.
