Anyway, I can't find myself enjoying The Expanse much, and I don't get the hype - hype which has led to it being too valuable for Netflix or Amazon to pick up, it seems. So I quit watching like 5 episodes in.
I liked Dark Matter a ton, and it was also easy to watch. The set design sucked, and the acting for the "hacker gril" was awful. But the directing, cinematography, and writing all seemed pretty top notch to me.
And The Expanse has something that will never not both the fuck out of me: Transparent smartphone screens.
How the fuck are you supposed to read white text on glass when there is white tile or walls behind it? Or black text on it in the dark? It's the stupidest fucking thing. It doesn't look cool, it looks moronic and panders to idiots that can't use their brain at all who thinks it looks cool.
