Some of you, according to the recent cancellation of ‘Nightflyers’, comentábais how SyFy has decided to give an opportunity to the adaptation of Martin instead of continuing with that piece of series is ‘The Expanse‘, which was canceled by the string (and rescued by Amazon) after the issuance of its third season. And the truth is that, once you see these last episodes, hate to think that we were nearly out more.
season 3 of ‘The Expanse‘, finally arrives to Spain from the hand, this time, Amazon Prime Video begins with the situation of pre-war open all over the solar system. The cold war ended and the confrontation between the earth, martian and cinturianos (and the APE) has exploded by order, after hard fighting and emergency situations human.
All this while the team of the Rocinante led by Holden (Steven Strait), try to find the lab where Mao (François Chao) is experimenting with the protomolécula. A body about to change forever the rules of the game of power.
you have to understand, pretty much what we usually think of space opera ‘The Expanse’ is a drama of the military and political set in outer space. Some doubt not, in fact, in signing off the saga created by James SA Corey (the pseudonym under which it is signed Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck) as a ‘Game of Thrones‘ space.
A comparison that, while it may be somewhat exaggerated (must not have a fifth part of the media that has the drama of HBO), defines well what it is capable of doing ‘The Expanse’ with very few elements, and how easy it seems to balance the politics with the science fiction more pure.
Science fiction and politics in a pairing balanced only at times
– Although not always-this means that all the arcs of the third season work. In fact here is to recognise that the first half of these thirteen espisodios is superior to the second because the story is quite more interesting, intriguing and even adventurous.
In this regard are two arches quite opposite in approach and theme. While the first one is very political, with such machinations, and even transfer of our political moment, to a future not too distant, the second is more fantastic and even metaphysical.
But the problem is not so much in the subject matter (which, although a predominant does not imply the absence of the other) if you are not in the irregularity of the rhythm. In fact, this second half feels (even literally for the plot) not as a brake but as to go by car to the centre of the city in rush hour: while it is something sought after you never know how you will arrive at the destination.
In general, I think that in this third season of ‘The Expanse’, the team led by Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby have managed to reap good seeds and the time investment in the construction of the universe in the two previous seasons, here receives a good pay.
The result has been a great season, that has been something from most to least, but remains one of the series of science fiction’s most stimulating and fascinating. A great example of that with a budget of just more limited (remember to ‘Battlestar Galactica‘), you can do a work as ambitious as we can imagine.

The news ‘The Expanse’ proves that science fiction and politics can be paired perfectly on a great season 3 where only failure rate was originally published in Espinof by Albertini .
