The Expanse Season Two Trailers Show That Despite Colonizing Mars, Humanity Hasn’t Come Very Far At All
So much sci-fi is set in an idealized future in which humanity has figured everything out; in which our only enemies are those outside our species and humanity is a beacon to which other species should aspire. SyFy’s The Expanse is not that show. This show is all about reminding us that technological advancement and evolution as a species don’t necessarily have anything to do with each other.

My wife has been nagging me to watch The Expanse for the better part of a year, both for its quality storytelling and its inclusive cast, but I’ve kept putting it off.

The Expanse returns to SyFy with a two-episode Season Two premiere on February 1st.
