If you loved Battlestar Galactica and other grand space operas, you’re going to love The Expanse. Set several hundred years in the future, after man has colonized the Moon, Mars and the Asteroid Belt, the story follows two main threads in the first season. One is that of Holden, a young man searching for his place, working on an ice mining ship out in the Belt. He and his crew stumble upon a distress call in deep space and decide to investigate; what they find could change the future of the galaxy. The other story is that of Miller, a detective on the asteroid Ceres, who is asked to hunt down a young woman who’s gone missing. With a depth of world-building and an undercurrent of noir, The Expanse is an absolute gem of a show.
