Y'all are a bunch of wankers!

Is 'The Expanse' any good?

It's just been renewed for a 3rd series.

I haven't watched it yet but the synopsis reminds me of Larry Niven's 'Belters'.

It's awesome, one of the best shows I've watched in a while.

Really good scifi.

Yes it's good. Effects are very good. Has a bladerunner sort of vibe. I found it pretty slow to start though.

Also it's an interesting commitment to a third season given they've barely started into the book series and will probably need at least 10 seasons to get to the interesting bits, plus the production cost per episode has to be astronomical. (NPI)

Yes. The second season has more action than the first season did. Like the Game of Thrones this show is based on a set of books (not all of them have been written already).

Sixth book came out recently. Potboiler - added nothing to the vast stage but focussed on an intra-family issue.  Easier on the future production budget to script a soap to be shot in a studio rather than think up new special effects. 

Not that the CG so far lacks much - it's superb apart from the spurious space battle noises.
