I live and breathe science fiction. I have been a fan of science fiction since watching Flash Gordon on our very small television set in 1954. I was eight years old.

I’ve been reviewing this fantastic science fiction series since day one, first on Biff Bam Pop, then later on my personal blog. The Expanse, which stars Steven Strait, Dominique Tipper, Wes Chatham, Cas Anvar, Frankie Adams, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Cara Gee, David Strathairn, Elizabeth Mitchell, and Thomas Jane as Joe Miller, is ending its time on the SyFy Channel and moving to Amazon Prime for season four. At least that’s what we’ve been promised…but I don’t trust people in authority anymore. The first part of the season finale is all about trust. Continue reading

We need to make our voices heard, loud and clear. Here is the link. Start Tweeting! Continue reading

I love science fiction for one reason; it is a looking glass into the future. What the writers of “The Expanse” have accomplished with this series is to show the prospects of our upcoming future for when we do land on Mars and, when we begin mining asteroids. Will our future be free of war and strife? Not likely. Humans are the most destructive species in the universe, and tonight’s episode gives us a glimpse of our nature…no matter where we call home.
