Watched The Expanse S6E1&2

Watched Strange Dogs from

The Rocinante crew make a startling discovery on an asteroid. Avasarala and Bobbie contend with the devastation on Earth. Drummer and her family must make a heartbreaking decision. On Ceres, Marco and Filip’s struggles turn inward.

Feeling meh so far, hopefully after a few more episodes we’ll get back into it. Too many plotlines, too much politics that’s hard to follow, especially since I continue to struggle with the belter accent. Marcos Inaros struggling to keep that accent in some spots. Having a hard time keeping tabs on this many spaceships. Our spaceship family on the Rocinante is fraying at the seams, frustrating to see them all squabbling.

CGI looking not great. But at least Avasarela’s outfits are still on point. Some of the action happens too quickly for me to follow and I have to get DH to tell me what just happened. At once point I thought there were three spaceships in a scene rather than two because I couldn’t track the movement of one of them.

I really don’t care about the little girl who accidentally killed a baby “bird,” it can’t compete with the other scenes in places we know with people we care about, and the child actor is not up to the same standard as the adults — please stop dragging out this storyline and get to the point. I imagine it would be even duller if I didn’t have a vague idea from DH why that planet is important.
