What do you think Naomi and Holden's future looks like?
Hopefully you guys will adapt the last three books and show us.
Wokeness NOT PUSHED... wokeness tolerated...
Started production on season 5 yet ?
You should make the next season 3D animated. Just like Clone Wars.
@AAJIV Asimov's Laws of Robotics would have prevented R. Daneel Olivaw from engaging in such a raid. Plus, R. Daneel turned out to be far more subtlely powerful & central to Asimov's universe. I'd suggest Golan Trevize for the Foundation reference here. He had served in the Foundation Navy, was handy with a blaster & a neuronic whip, & familiar with combat.
Thanks for watching, everyone! Now we just wait 30 years for Season 7...
I know this voice! 😉 Always complete and logic. Thanks! Now i understand that Kara's story and the protomolecule intrigue are unfinished. Really disappointed as when i watch sci-fi it's not for politics and war, it's for sci-fi obviously.
@Gaming Extreme I won’t be alive, in 30 years from now!!!!
I love how even Amazon likes the "wait for 30 years for season 7" ☠
Been watching your content since you first started your GoT Explained videos, super cool to see you featured on Amazon's official channel! Do you plan to cover the remaining episodes 2-5 on your channel? I'd love to see it
i'm so glad amazon hired you to do recaps. you've always done my favorite recaps with the quotes, and splitting screens--- you make even complex shows and stories easy to follow.
I did not know this i have been following since raised by wolves as he is the only one that explains it the way i like he gives extra information that opens the up the story and goes in depth. I can truly understand why they chose him
why isn't he doing all of them tho?
Shame HBO didn't hire him to write or do a test screening season 8 of GOT
Wow, used to watch this guy for his game of thrones breakdown and he's now working for amazon, I guess I can't be accused of being a groupie, haha!
Thank you Amazon for polling talented youtubers like Alt shift for this. It was a great run, and it would not had happenned without your decision to take on the show to it's acceptable conclusion. I do hope you will finish the last 3 books, but still apreciate you ended it without too much of a clifthangner.
I think I’d cry the happiest tears of joy in my life if they decided to continue the series.
The Expanse is definitely something else. Sad that it's over, but happy that it happened and that there are more books to go through at least.Best thing to happen to sci fi in more then a decade in my opinion.
@Juan Ramírez Yes definitely one of the best sci fi shows of all time.
@Juan Ramírez Absolutely.
Is it worth to watch??
On behalf of Admiral Duarte, i would like to see season 7,8,9 and spin offs.
@Logic Plague It's supposed to be a space platform that can build and process many things using and made by protomolecule.
@Logic Plague I think the noodle looking thing with the spider webs coming out of them were one of the construction platforms. The thing at the center was either the Proteus or the Tempest.
@Jaffa Rebellion So, was that thing in orbit a Magnetar, or the dock that builds them?
The High Consul has spoken. The Tempest stands ready for departure.
Since the 'dogs' are apparently repair drones.. That immediately makes me think of the creatures in the Citadel in Mass effect, these were called 'Keepers' and made by the protheans .They maintain the citadel and are mostly hidden out of sight. Do you think that these strange dogs were inspired by the mass effect keepers?
No, because the setting of the Expanse was thought-out as an RPG before Mass Effect. Though the comparison to the Keepers is not unexpected to me.
I think the entire thing was inspired by elite dangerous
@Maxawe Some right! Even Zelda Skyward Sword has these little bot-creatures who keeps working after all the OG creators died.
@Maxawe Some yeah. I can also name Daktaklakpak and Mycon from Star Control, created by Precursors ("Protheans"). There are Dabus from Planescape D&D setting too, etc.
Everyone involved with this show has done a wonderful job, a quality project to be proud of. The best sci fi show since the Reimagined Battlestar Galactica, if you ask me. We've been fortunate to get 6 seasons of such an amazing show, based on an awesome series of books. The idea it might be picked up again in the future is a nice thought, and I want it to happen quite badly, but I think it is grasping at straws.
I'm really hoping they're just taking a few years to nail down a new cast for the older version of some of the characters
Yessss! I'm surprised the BSG fandom didn't show up in huge numbers for The Expanse, it's the only truly valid comparison tbh
Kara "Starbuck" Thrace from Battlestar Galactica is also listed as part of the group attacking the railguns!
Epically underrated classic!
I'm guessing many of you didn't watch the video......duhhhhhhhhhhhh
@kousetsuhana then she brings in the cat 😎
Edward Buck from Halo
"Young Ashford" would be a great prequel series. like pirate Hornblower in space set 30~50yrs before the events in the book. please include the authors of the original IP.
The Pirate Adventures of Ashford in the style of would be awesome!!!
Agreed, I'd like to see him "fly dark past a Martian Battlegroup", as he tells Diogo. Maybe see how he got his scars.
Loved this whole series. Brilliantly made and well thought out. I forgot about Alex, it was a shame he had to go, he was a funny and entertaining part of the show.
The actor had big problems , though
He lives on in the books!
@Fatal Shore everybodys a creep these days, quit judging and mind your business
Pitty he was a creep show irl
Come on Bezos, you can spare some pocket changes for this extraordinary series! It can motivate kids to learn more about space better than your millionaire joyride!
Riight; For the kids 😉
This was such a beautiful ending! I cried so many times this season! Also the short story with the “dogs” and the kids was just too amazing!
😭 BIG QUESTION: What was your favourite moment from the last season?
Drummer also had experience running Tycho station, right under Fred Johnson. I also believe she used to work for Anderson Dawes. And after working closely with Ashford, she probably understands the politics of the Belt and the OPA the best. There isn't a soul in the solar system better fit to run the TU!
So sad to see it go off the air. I LOVE this show! Smartest sci-fi on TV.
thank you Prime for hosting Shifty. he's the absolute best and we revere him. Simply no other recap or review can compare with his ❤️❤️❤️❤️
This is for idiots. There is no reason to recap such a straightforward narrative.
This is the best space SciFi show ever produced. I loved Battlestar Galactica, but it's beaten by The Expanse. I just hope there will be more episoded produced in the future.
@Maxawe Some Babylon 5 was also amazing, but it is a completely different experience.
I still think Babylon 5 was the best.
It's actually disappointing they canceled it already... There was SO MUCH more story they could have done in this new universe.I mean, this really could be a new Star Trek or Star Wars universe.... story's that can go on forever.
Beautifully done. I hope, like you, that they manage to bring the final three novels to the screen. Ty Frank and Naren Shankar make it clear that this is their hope as well. Shankar said “I’m working on it” in one of his tweets during the finale twitter live tweet. Ty says we should not harass Amazon because we need their goodwill.
What a perfectly clear, concise explanation of so many nuances that I missed, and how everything relates to the books. I'm anxious to read the books now, and will start a rewatch of the series soon.
For the people reference, Quaid, D is probably Douglas Quaid from Total Recall. Such a small scene, but I love the call back to all the sci fi big shots.
I want to think that the Hicks, D is a reference to Dante Hicks from Clerks. Which would be the ultimate odd one out joke since he's "not even supposed to be here today!".
@Torthak "Its O'neill with two L's. Theres another Col. O'neil with only one L and he has no sense of humor at all.":Dedit: Thats O'neill with two typos
@Stanislav Stoimenov I want to say that Ochiai, H. is a reference to Knights of Sidonia, but more likely it is for Hidy Ochiai. Starr, L. is from Asimov. Rogan, A. is Alex Rogan from The Last Starfighter. Nesmith, J. is Tim Allen's character from Galaxy Quest.
O'Neil, J is Jack O'Neil from the Stargate Movie. The TV series was O'Neill, J
Yes. And Thrace, K. is Kara 'Starbuck' Thrace from "Battlestar Galactica".
9:50 So these are some of the greatest badasses in scifi history. And Bobbie Draper and Amos Burton are right there with them
Thrace, K is probably Kara Thrace
Man I am going to miss the Expanse. Best sci-fi show of all time by far! Thanks for making these videos guys.
“Filip Nagata” feels like a cliffhanging teaser. Perhaps season 7? Hopefully; surely!
@Shining Pecan "Baby"?
@Erik Stop being such a baby. It's not a spoiler.
@FatPaws The fact that you think reading YT comments and hiding from spoilers is possible makes me realise the average intelligence of trolls on the internet is probably an imaginary number.
@7gromojar It should be a sitcom with a laugh track!
Nah..I don't think we need anymore Nagata story....
2:15 The reaction the parents had to their son coming back to life was extremely similar to the _Babylon 5_ episode Believers (s01e10). The episode dealt with the moral and ethical implications of Dr. Franklin performing life saving surgery on an alien child instead of letting him slowly suffocate despite the objections of the child's parents. The parents, after seeing their son cured, are horrified, and the reaction is mirrored in this episode.
The whole series has been amazing .. but this last episode.. the emotions it triggered in me.. I can’t remember anything else doing this in me.. above all the pearls of human love and care.. one for all Peaches gift of the little jewel to Amos .. no words only vibrations of gratitude 🙏🏻🥰💞
This is how you reward your community and do brand deals with creators. So glad they didn't censor anything and just let Alt shift do his thing.
I loved this show! Haven’t been excited about a sci fi show in a long time. I’m sad it’s over.
I'm gonna miss The Expanse. It was 6 seasons of the finest hard sci-fi.
Sad that this is the last season :( , this crew who build and adapted the book are some of the best out there, hope we got more amazing work for them. Also thanks amazon from saving this show from syfy
Note that between books 6 and 7, there is a significant time jump.So ending series here seems reasonable.
@Daniel B What? I just started book 7 and peaches is still there at the beginning.
Its why I'm not holding out hope for new seasons. With a few centuries of medical advances, the average life expectancy being 112 or whatever and being even better on Mars, they could do this, believably right now, with makeup, maybe CGI. That they will pick it up in 10 years to let the actors age is grasping at straws.
@James Royce-Dawson (maybe you are right… not for very long if so)
@Daniel B You must be misremembering this. Peaches is definitely still alive at the start of book 7
@Daniel Harborne literally the first scene with the crew.
Thank you I needed this. Man I'm so sad this series has ended :'( One of the greatest series of all time for me
Nobody important sacrificed themselves; no real mysteries solved; everyone lives happily ever after. 10/10 would elect Holden again!
Great follow up and final summary. Explained a lot to me that I missed and questioned. I just started the books so this helps me in my Expanse Journey. Ps. Love the troop Easter eggs and shout out to some of the great scfi peeps that I luv. I definitely missed that one. Glad Riker made the troop cut. Make it so number one. Make it so.
Incredible finale! Thank you for the in depth explanations of certain scenes and dynamics to make it even better!
Great summary of episode 6 and how it “pauses” The Expanse”. it was a fantastic series.
What an awesome review! It is even compared and contrasted against the novels.10/10
The Expanse, a brilliant story with an excellent cast.
Another fantastic recap by Alt Shift X. I didn't read the books yet so I appreciate that you help bring some context from the books without spoiling anything.
La mejor serie de Ciencia Ficción que he visto en mi vida. Disfruté al máximo cada milisegundo, del último capítulo, de la última temporada, por que sabía que era el final de una serie espectacular.Mil gracias tío Amazon por esta maravillosa serie!!!!
Excelente serie, muy bien hecha , me gustaría mucho ver la continuación de los otros libros, espero que la hagan!!!
That drop scene is pure Amos-type. All the action and deaths and chaos all around him, and he's just going through it all until the end.
I did my part by writing to Amazon asking them to pick up the series and by buying season 3 on their website.
Love that your doing the recap for amazon bro! Welldone to amazon for finding great talent! Hope they give us more seasons 🙏🏻
i'm so satisfied with this finale which makes me so sad at the prospect of waiting indefinitely for S7
What a great summary. 👍🏼 Gave me a more fresh perspective overhaul of the series. Forgotten some stuff and their connections.
What a great show! And an awesome explanation by Shifty!
The thing I enjoy most about The Expanse is that literally everything has a reason. Big stuff, small stuff, and everything in between. Not one thing was without merit or purpose.
Yep, excellent economy in the writing. If you appreciate that, you should check out The Wire if you haven't already done so. One of the show's mottoes is "all the pieces matter."
Exactly! The best example of that is when Avasarala is on the roof with her grandson in the first season watching falling stars and says she is “afraid of people who throw rocks”. BRILLANT foreshadowing that pays off in the FIFTH season!
i just finished watching all 6 seasons of The Expanse i i can't remember the last time i was this HOOKED in a series. i really really REALLY hope they continue to show the rest of The Expanse huhu
Thanks to amazon to continue with this TV-Show, and I hope some day more soon that later we can see the complete history in a tv-show!
This was a brilliant summary. Hope to see you when the story continues.
Bravo - really nicely done! Somehow you combined the intent of the last show, the arc of the last season, it's continuity to previous seasons, and key differences between what was on screen and what was in the books. That's tough to do - hat tip to you.
I saw Kara Thrace (Starbuck) in the list of names. A little Battlestar Galactica nod in there too.
I was disappointed that Farscape wasn't represented.
indeed, i thought he'd notice
I loved the last episode, great ending of a great show.Hopefully the future brings us more seasons.
Great job with the recap there’s a lot of things that I loved with expanse. One was the characters, The acting and personality and how they grew through the show was great. I also love the sense of humor. Second, The special effects were great. Third I know the TV show goes based upon the books but the storyline was just not right for me I did love the ending. I hope we get more of The Expanse. I also love sci-fi because it lets us know that hopefully we’re not the only ones in the universe. I love the stars. Thanks for your breakdown and recap I know you don’t get paid for your prediction but what do you think Amazon‘s gonna do?
I am so glad I randomly stumbled into this show, it has become my favorite by far. It would be a tragedy if they don't finish up the last 3 books. I really hope someone extends them for 3 more seasons.
Yes, I was surprised
Thank you for this video and especially well written final recap of the show. Well said. Glad that Amazon saw the value in sponsoring this video as your “Easter eggs” spotlights make me appreciate the depth and complexity of the show itself. Thank you!
Great season, great show, really well done.Can't say I was surprised and a little disappointed to find out that it was only 6 episodes long though, and especially so because none of the questions about Laconia or the ring entities were answered.It would be a shame if those questions were deliberately left unanswered and this season cut short to better set up future spin-offs, but my cynical mind thinks that it is a real possibility...
The Books 7 - 9 carry on the Laconia & Entities story lines. To me, the best books of the bunch. I'm glad they did not try to finish those story arcs. Leaves a chance for a future series.
If they had tried to quickly resolve everything, it wouldn't have worked as well. In real life the end to some people's story won't answer the grand universal concerns. The Expanse shows that life continues and transforms, rarely with resolution. If they tried for a forced ending, it would've echoed Game of Thrones end ,and no one wants that.
SUCH a great recap of the "finale". I have enjoyed all 6 seasons of The Expanse. Camina Drummer has been my "Odds On Favorite" so I was pleased to see DRUMMER FOR THE WIN! In the end.
I loved that show as much as I loved BSG! Amazon did great with keeping the Show running!
This series is a masterpiece I tell you. A MASTERPIECE.
I am really sorry this series comes to an end, it was to my point of view the best scifi content since Battle Star Galactica. I really hope at some point they will pick it back and give us the rest of the books. Meanwhile I am thinking of reading the books to see the diference and judge the adaptation.
@trevey11 Epic indeed! Magnetar class warships!
You will not be disappointed. The books are just different enough to let you have some surprises but mostly the story is there in both the books and the adaptation. The final trilogy wraps up the protomolecule storyline and are epic.
Yep, I got impatient waiting for the last season on tv so went and read the entire series from the start so I could see the spoilers "the right way" lol. Def worth the read.
Your explaination and story telling is great! thanks for this nice video. Maybe we see more expanse.
Thankyou so much for such a brilliant closing explanation - really joined all the dots for me, great work @AltShiftX. Subbed
I binged this show in a month and I can't wait for more! I'll be reading the books if I come across them. Great video!
It didn't feel like an end to me. In a weird way, it felt more like a midpoint (which I guess it is in the books). I hope there's a sequel series someday because there are so many questions left unanswered. I'll miss this show a lot, guess I'll finally have to read the books.
Such a great show with a great cast! I really hope they finish the books in the future.
Great summary and thanks for the work you put into it!
We need more of this show!!!
How can they discontinue one of the best sci fi creations brought to television?
I really hope we get a season 7, 8 and 9 (maybe more) to finish the books
Thank you for the video. It's such vast material, a few explation help.My personal view, it's not really a series finale. More of a season finale. They decided to stick with the books. Even though it might be disappointing for some viewers. Not to learn about the protomolecule, where it all started.
I realy hope for season 7. Show is amazing. I am going to read books now. Thanks very much. 😊
Great summary of the last episode. The ending demands a continuation of this great series.
23:50 Amos lost the pin when he went to visit Clarissa in the prison. He had to leave it there.
I felt bad he lost the pin and the mug he got from his trip to Baltimore.
well, he had to leaave the jacket it was on to go down, and when he came bak up, the entire building containing it was obliterated >.
A 2 part movie could close out this epic story with dignity.
Glad they allowed ASX to mention there are more books and amazon is canceling the show without finishing the story. This way people who don't read the books can maybe check them out.
Amazon does sell books and own Audible after all :^)
Amazon should do the last 3 books (seasons) of the series. Such an amazing series - a true masterpiece. They could have paid for an entire season of Expanse for the cost of a single episode of that lousy LotR series!
Great video. Beautifully explained!
It's madness to me that the show is stopping at this point... really disappointed...
How am I going to live without Amos?He is my spirit animal.
This is how you end a awesomely superb and loved by its fan base series! I hope D&D from GOT are taking notes.
I hope they make the next 3 books a MOVIE TRILOGY!
NO! There is too much material for a movie-per-book format. So we'll get either super cutt-off story or overbloated movies.
This was one the best sci-fi shows ever. How are Amazon going to replace this?!
Best sci-fi show I’ve ever watched! Thank you!
This is one of the best of the best television series you will ever watch.
I REALLY HOPE AMAZON KEEPS THIS SERIES GOING. Not even kidding, I literally sub to Amazon for a month just to watch The Expanse and The Boys each time a season drops. Those, and Invincible.
In the meantime, in the last seconds of the final episode, you can literally see how protomolecule took over a great part of a Galaxy in the distance.
that was the best recap, analysis and exploration i've seen done on a show. i'm going to sub to your own channel (which i obvioulsy should've done years ago).
Now please begin production of season 7! Before it cools off. Absolutely loved this series and we need more!
Nice to see the reference to I Banks, presumably the late, great Scottish author who created the Culture series. At one stage Amazon was going to adapt his first Culture novel ''Consider Phlebas'' but it fell through. I, for one, live in hope. Great video Sir.
Amazing! Somebody inside the The Expanse S6 Crew is an anime connoisseur: Ochiai is the Name of *the* badass _(and evil)_ Scientist from the anime *Knights of Sidonia!* Which, btw, has also outstanding space combat. Although - nothing beats The Expanse hey =)
Thanks for sharing this increidible explanation mate, following this TV show since 2018 and rigth know it is on my heart for all the things that I learned. like with a lot of SCI-FI tv series and some books
Hopefully if they bring back the show it will be with same actors after a long pause.
The nice thing, is the books themselves involve a time skip
Thank you for this. Too bad they had to compress it all into such a short set of episodes. Too much was out of context, so the finale sucked. Hello GoT. A couple of additional episodes to flesh it out would have been nice. Bean counters ruin everything.
Excellent summary! I hope to see more of The Expanse
Great video. It made me realize there was a lot about the past couple of seasons that I hadn't fully comprehended :)
I really hope we get an adaptation of the last 3 books. Maybe market it as something different than The Expanse to get new viewers?
Great overview - well worth viewing
really really need more expanse....best show in years and years
What the writers want us to think:'Wow I'm glad Fillip survived'What we actually think:'Noooo how could you leave Tadeo?!! WHYYYYYY'
