Save the Expanse Please.

DajCHBmU0AAfzWzCheryl Eddy over at IO9 has a plea we can all agree with, SOMEONE SAVE THE EXPANSE! Though it is an emotional plea, she she lays out some compelling reasons to support the show’s progressive narrative.

Kick-ass women are always welcome, especially in science fiction, but all of The Expanse’s characters have unusual depth. One example: The Roci’s tough mechanic, Amos Burton (Wes Chatham), is an intriguing cross between psychopath, wounded man-child, and hilarious deadpan jokester; he hasn’t been dubbed “#murdersnuggles” by his admirers on Twitter for nothing. Bringing such distinctive characters to life is no small task, but the casting on The Expanse couldn’t be better. The Roci crew has an undeniable chemistry that’s just grown over time, and it’s so much fun to watch them interact no matter what high-pressure situation they’re battling at the moment. The Expanse is also really good about filling its smaller roles with actors with memorable presence, like Chad L. Coleman and Jared Harris as Belt leaders who are either allies or enemies, depending on the day of the week. We haven’t even met the new-this-season Belter captain character played by David Strathairn, and I’m already giddy with excitement over what he’ll bring to the show’s dynamic.

Update – It looks like Amazon might.

From CBS:

Adult Swim’s “Rick and Morty” is coming back, but fans will have to wait. Season 3 wrapped in October, and CNET reports that the show won’t likely return until 2019. But fans will be handsomely rewarded for the wait with 70 more episodes of their favorite super-criminal scientist and his grandson.

Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland announced on Thursday that the show is returning for 70 more episodes. The news is impressive, considering each season so far has only been 10 episodes. That means if “Rick and Morty” continues with 10-episode seasons, the show has at least seven more seasons to go.
