I've been a science fiction fan for more than 50 years. The Expanse is based on books. The whole family has read the books and watched the series. We enjoyed.

Your mileage may vary

I’ve read that the books are based on a table top role playing game. Pretty interesting pedigree for a TV show

Re: Watching the Expanse on Netflix

I’m rewatching the Expanse now. I watched seasons 1 and 2 a few months ago, but season 3 wasn’t available. Season 3 just came out on Amazon Prime video, and my wife expressed some interest, so we started from the beginning. She usually doesn’t like sci-fi, but this has held her interest. One thing I...

Re: FL: Homeowner shoots two invaders

I assume it will work out all right for the homeowner. In his favor: suspects were masked. One suspect was armed. Shooting death in the neighborhood previously, I’m assuming a resident death. In Florida. Both dead. Wife witness. At his home. However, Not in his favor at least in Texas: 1pm in the d...

Re: Strippers take Boston officer's service weapon

Its Boston, TAXachusetts. No doubt in my mind that they spent $5000 of taxpayer money per Glock in a scheme that would likely make John Wiley Price look like an amateur. :smilelol5: Remember the "Big Dig"?: The Big Dig was the most expensive highway project in the US, and was plagued by cost overru...

Re: TX: SA off duty police officer suspended for 15 days after being shot 6 Times in the torso

... Yes. I'm not sure how you get 6 torso shots and have enough life in you to run back to your car grab you gun and fire back. I'm thinking .22 was this other guys gun. At one of the links in my post just above there are a bunch of pictures. There is little identification with them, but two handgu...
