I’m a fan. I’ve seen the first three seasons. It’s good, though I’d quibble that so far into the future that even if a singularity doesn’t occur it’s rather a bit like now with cooler smartphones and spaceships. (Some would dismiss it as Space Opera, and that’s kind of what it is. But the New Space Opera isn’t awful. It’s just what it is.)

I haven’t read the link. Busy weekend doing final processing.

It's just people like us, in an actually possible world. Honestly, it's great. So I was excited to get a chance to talk to the showrunner of The Expanse, Naren Shankar—who, I have to mention, has a PhD in applied physics."
