The Expanse (TV series) – season 1

If you like SciFi, I highly recommend this series. It’s complex and nuanced with plenty of futuristic technology.

The Expanse is based on the novel series of the same name by James S. A. Corey, a pen name of the authors Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck, who also serve as writers and producers for the show. The first novel, Leviathan Wakes (2011), was nominated for the Hugo Award for Best Novel and Locus Award for Best Science Fiction Novel.

I’ll definitely be downloading Leviathan Wakes.
