Another Expanse video here! S5E01 Explained: x-vid.net/video/IzJKL0NGqTo/video.html
Love this. Best sci fi on tv anywhere, especially after the dumpster fires they made of star trek, dr who.😠
Hope you can do a s5 review if you have time
Keep the expanse videos coming!!
Oh shit! The new season's been released, eh?
👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽Congrats on the official AP Expanse breakdown
This channel will conquer the internet if George ever releases The Winds of Winter
One day Winter Will come
Brandon Sanderson will end up finishing it
Laughs in tinfoil
@Bilbo Baggins 6 months later still nada. Morons
@Bilbo Baggins and you still believe him? i would bet money he dies before realeasing the winds of winter.
The Roci was not stolen! Legitimate Salvage!
100% legit!!!! 😠😠 the Martian even gave them the codes for the ship right?
They did not steal the Rocci, they were told to take it by the captain of the Martain ship along with other Martians.
Thank you for mentioning that
Ahahahahahaha! EXACTLY! Ask anyone in the Roci 😇
Haven’t seen Alt Shift X doing a non HBO show, a very good show chosen nonetheless. 🤘🏼
@Clips and Tributes no
Congrats on the sponsorship! This was done super well!
So sad for Ashford ,he was a great character.
Great way to introduce a villian
@Ian Book must suck too then.
@James Randall Ashford is far better done in the show than in the books. And it was done tastefully and poetically.
@my name is jeeeyf Ashford is far superior in the show than in the books. And season 4 follows book 4 pretty damn closely
@James Randall Agreed, not sure what happened with Season 4 in the writers room, but it felt like The 100
This is such a great show that when they were just airing season 3, and the news came out about it being cancelled and all the fan outcry was in the middle of saving the show and getting amazon to pick it up, I got so obsessed with the show that I had to have more and ended up reading the WHOLE book series, all 8 600 page books before season 4 was finally released on amazon... NO other show has had that effect on me. SUCH Ana amazing show and SUCH a great series of novels. I can’t fucking WAIT for the final 9th book to come out October 2021... CANT... FUCKING... WAIT!!!I really don’t know how they’re going to pull off the final arc of books 7-9 on the series. Those who’ve read the books know what I’m talking about.
The show runners said that they will probably end it with season 6 (which will be based on book 6), but that they won’t be going anywhere (whatever that means). I think that they might be hoping for a short spin-off series.
Rocinante was the name of Don Quixote's horse. Holden was calling himself out for his habit of tilting at windmills.
It was his favorite book as a child. His mom said they brought him up to be a knight and then gave him a war he could not win (protecting their farm). The lifeboat they took off of the Canterbury to check out the distress call was called the “Knight”
Not only that, but the first episode is named "Dulcinea" after Don Quixote's so-called princess
The BEST SCI FI of modern times. Period.
I came for the space, politics, action, drama, and ancient alien mysteries, but I stayed for the lasagna.
I wanna try red kibble too
And the coffee! Half of the expanse is the quest for good coffee in space.
Came for Hard-SciFi. Stayed for Amos.He's that guy.
Spoiler alert: Holden does not learn how to keep his shirt on.
coffee guzzling machine.
@Mark Evans He still has a decent build, so I guess that he probably worked out for the shirtless scenes. His clothing, posture and the facial hair for these last two seasons don’t do his true figure any justice either.Also, Naomi is noticeably thinner too.
@Bhagwan Singh Amos is so 👌
@Gabilu Rio I wonder why he doesn't. He certainly should.
As he shouldn't.
Alt Shift X making a recap for the fifth season of a series I had never heard about? Oh boy, I guess I'm watching the first four seasons now!
@DonRobo they have to do the world building. I too always tell people to give until at least the fourth episode.
This is the best Sci Fi show I have ever seen and I have been into Sci Fi since the 60’s first run or Star Trek. The Expanse is like nothing else. Complex, exciting, brilliantly produced and acted. Forget it being a great Sci Fi show, it’s a GREAT SHOW!
I did the same thing, you won't regret it.
Most (science fiction / outer space) (television / movie / streaming video) shows are seemingly made by people still resentful of their high school science teacher (who gave them a D-) and therefore trash the science at every opportunity. The Expanse is one of the rare exceptions. It's also a pretty decent yarn, if you like violent political thrillers with space ships. And who doesn't?
@Olivia Scruton I agree
The Expanse Books are my favorite book series after ASOIAF, and now it has a good chance of becoming my favorite TV series as well!
I was never into reading before, but after watching the Expanse and hearing it's based on a book series I had to check it out. I ended up reading the whole series in a couple of weeks, it's that good.
I need to check those out, I've been meaning to for a while
@TheAnakinn Wheel of Time should be up your alley. and is actually finished.And for expanse? try chris fox's series of books. (Drykers fall etc) He actually finishes series too.
Same here. I couldn't wait for the new Expanse seasons, so I bought the books. Not since ASOIAF have I read a book series this fast
Yeah! Same : D
This is the only show I've ever watched where I hope the main plot gets stretched out for more character stories and arcs.
"If you want more expanse videos ..."Is that a trick question or something?
What? I didn't know Season 5 was coming 😲 I'm so excited, I'm currently listening to Book 3, this series is amazing, and I honestly just started it because of Alt Shift X. That was a great recommendation 🤩
*_United Nations still exists centuries from now._*Me: Eh it's Sci Fi I can suspend my disbelief a bit...*_Baltimore still exists centuries from now._*Me: COMPLETELY UNREALISTIC!!!
In Season 4 there’s a shot of the Rocinante orbiting Earth over North America. You can tell by the lack of city night lights that Florida through much of Louisiana is basically underwater, so they got that right!
The intro and episode 1 suggests that is not for long
Hahaha, I really laughed out loud when he said "A single spark could cause war" - que Holden's face.
I love this show. Curious how they'll try to wrap things up in season 6 considering there's a lot left to go over.
Love the roundup. Often broke out laughing."So Bobby goes all Ironman to protect her."But Marco (at least in the tv show) launches at least 8 "rocks" not just one.
Well, it was one, but it broke up.
93 hit (same as in the books)3 were intercepted3 missed
Yes, finally! This season will be legendary...
And the season came n meh....
Maybe you should try some videos about the Netflix Show „Dark“. It‘s a real gem.
You're the GOAT. I was just gonna start watching the 5th season and had a hard time remembering what happened. This is perfect timing
Would love more expanse videos! one of my favourite shows, especially given that GoT went out so poorly
This is an amazing show. Give it a chance, you won't regret it!
Nemesis Games is my favourite book in the series! Season 5 is set to be amazing and it's already off to a great start!
It's a far better show than Game Of Thrones turned out to be. Hopefully they stick the landing and show Dan and Dave how it's done. Has a lot in common with the original Gundam anime. Also when I hear the name Rocinante all I think about is the Rush song where they sing about a space ship with the same name.
Just what I needed before bingeing Season 5!
@Ojami 73 yeah found out last night they are doing the weekly thing.... Lame!
to bad you have to wait tell February for that
This series is amazing! I've always been a scifi fan, read all the books a few times over, and I love what the cast and crew have accomplished and how well they've brought the novels to life. It was beyond all expectations and I can't wait for the final season! I also wanted to say how much I enjoyed Nadine Nicole's performance as Clarissa Mao, she has really done an amazing job at arguably one of the toughest roles and I can't wait to see more Amos & Peaches scenes!
Bro this is fantastic! Alt Shift X literally breaking down all my favourite tv shows! Thank you for this!
This was awesome. Informative and humorous. Had me laughing out loud a couple times. 🤪
I’m so glad you are staring to cover this show! It deserves so much more notice than it gets. Your coverage gives it a gravitas that will help it get even more viewers. .
I have been wanting you guys to do this show for YEARS!!! I would love to see more. Every episode and every season.
Great amazing work, easy to understand, perfect narrative, best resume ever. Great voice. Thanks for sharing :-)
You always do such an amazing job on these. It took me a while to get into the series but now hooked on it. Even learned a few things I missed in this video. Off to watch your other video! Thanks!
love the expanse books...great recap as always from you guys!
Loved your content all through Game of Thrones! Super happy you are covering The Expanse, it's incredible. Congrats on the sponsorship, it's so well deserved!
You got sponsored by Amazon themselves?! Amazing dude congratulations! Finally a production company who knows how to support fans well! So stoked for you.
I'm always really excited to see you post videos, you have great taste for content. Keep up the good work, you are a credit to your craft.
Thanks for making this! Been waiting for the right day to start season five, most amazing sci-fi story evah!
Was seriously getting kind of depressed since any expanse stuff didn’t come out for over a year. Good job for ending that brother!
We are SCREAMING FIREHAWKS. But honestly though, one of the best Sci-Fi space show after Firefly. More people should watch this show.
Definitely do more of these! I love your work and the expanse!!
You're the best! Just realised this beloved series is back on! I need a concise refresher in this complicated series and here you are! Love your stuff, keep it coming, and now off to enjoy the series so far!
It's funny how small the season 2 recap is compared to the others
Fantastic. I watched episode 1 of season 5 last night and am going to go back and watch it again before continuing the season now that I have the major plot points back in my memory. Thanks for creating great stuff.
More expanse videos for sure. Definitely do videos on the books as well as the show. They follow the same story but go into much greater depth. As well as going much further into the story’s timeline as well!
lol, thanks for this, I was actually putting off watch Season 5 hoping someone I follow would put out a recap, and Alt Shaft X came through😊
Loved this video. It cleared up a couple of questions I had about the series (sort of...I'll probably have to read the series for full clarity). I'd love to see more, as the Amazon series continues.
I've considered watching this show but never got around to it. If it's good enough for ASX to do a recap, I've got to get around to it soon. Thanks for the suggestion! I'll go watch all 4 seasons so far and then come back and watch this video. :)
More Expanse coverage, please. Really great stuff!
Thanks for this, I had forgotten half of the story.
Thanks! Your videos are always great and I was a huge Expanse fan before you started doing videos on their series. So these videos are the whole "how Reeses first happened" of two of my favorite media.
Congrats on making it to the official X-vid channel of Amazon Prime UK!You deserve it!
Thank you for posting this. I’ve watched _The Expanse_ from the very beginning but half the time I don’t understand what’s going on, in part due to the pidgin English the Belters use. I now have a clearer understanding.Was so sorry to see Amos have to kill his love interest in season-4. Besides the fact that I wanted to see more of her, Amos is my favorite character and I wanted him to find some happiness. Oh well.
Love that you got sponsored by amazon, congrats! Love all your stuff!
Season 5 is looking awesome so far, Nemesis Games is the most loved book so I'm hyped
Great breakdown of the show! Thanks for your efforts!
Love this show, thanks for the recap!
I hope you continue analytical content for The Expanse as you did with GoT. This book / tv series is incredible, and dense with politics and lore ripe for dissection.
The Expanse videos are excellent. This channel is the primary reason why I started watching. Keep up the good work!
This show and book series is an absolute gem. My favorite by far.
I'm probably not the first to say it, but I find it incredibly admirable how you get such an impressive sponsorship and still remain so professional about it
Amazing recap. Totally forgot about about of this stuff and needed to catch up on it before watching season 5
definitely want more Expanse videos. Maybe some exploring the differences between the books and show? Applications of the protomolecule? How to parse Belter creole? just brainstorming some options...
This is great, thanks for showing me this series with the first recap you did years ago
Thank you. Saved me a lot of time from not having to watch all the episodes.
Really well done!I have short attention span and lots to do, so this is great. On to Season 5 E 1 !
14:26 "They protect a Belter who was a terrorist but was nice about it" Hahahaha made me laugh
That Adam Savage bit had me rolling. Great to hear your voice again.
You have such an incredible voice I could listen all day lol. Also please do more Expanse videos. Would love to see you break done every episode. Your the best.
Wish you had done, if not reviews on each episode but at least on each half season. This show is without a doubt one of the best hard scifi shows I've seen in a long time - great story, great characters and there's hardly any let down from episode to episode. It's just a great show.
Well done! I got on board early and Season 5 has been up to the high standards established early on. Terrible decision to take out Alex.
Ah! The channel that got me into The Expanse! Love your content, man!
Thanks for the recap! Maybe I will finally watch The Expanse that I hear so much about.
would like to see more indept stuff, loved your GOT breakdowns, I think the Expanse is together with Dark best TV series....
Very very well thought out universe. Best world building next to One Piece and AoT. Weird comparison but that is a testament to how thorough this show is.
As a fan of this show I have to say this is a truly excellent recap.
Great video bro! Always down for more videos on this show. I slept on this one for way to long.
Looking forward to the rest of the season!!
thanks for the recap, i needed this before diving into season 5
Thanks to your video I know the show is back on. Who knows when I would have found out otherwise. Amazon should have advertised it better. Anyway I'm glad to dive back into this world and watch your take on it.
Great summary! No one else does them so clearly and expansively (bad pun) as Alt Shift X
Aw Yiss!!! Hoping you'd cover this series all the way to final season!!
Take a shot for every time he says "mysterious"
Do all the other sci-fi/fantasy youtubers get a panic attack everytime AltShiftX drops a video? Cuz man, it's always on point and fucking tight! Gotta scare the competition shitless 😆
I need a hundred videos about episode 4 ! It was one of the greatest ever made. Everyone should watch this show
You are just great my dude. This video is exactly what I need right now
18 minutes for s1-s4? wow. Thousands of words in the books (which are excellent). I have just seen s5 and it is excellent. The series is NOT predictable and is deeply humanTIP use subtitles for the Belters talking. It helps
When are you going to share the third part of the tales about dunk and egg? Love it 👍
Seasons 1-3 of the Expanse are so fucking good, some of the best television going, unfortunately myself and the wife couldn't get into season 4, the pacing of it and writing were a bit below par (our opinion of course) but we're really hoping season 5 can get back to it's roots
How did I miss season 5 debut. Thanks so much man!
Thank you for this recap. These shows nowadays are on hiatus for like a year or more(hate it). I don't know about anyone else, but sometimes I forget what happened in the last season. Heck, I some times forget about the show itself. Heck, heck not only do I forget about the show, I may lose interest too when it comes back on.....lol. Of course if its a awesome show I never lose interest.
In my recollection, the Roci was given to them when they left the Donnager before it was destroyed …
Hype af for season 5!! Although i wish the alien storyline was still going on.
I’d love to see some book theories, what with the last book dropping sometime next year!
I wish I knew this show just to appreciate another AltShiftX video.
Thank you for this recap! Now... season 5 !!
I needed this i was so confused end of season 3 I wasn't even sure i watched season 4 or not. Thats how confused I was. This helped
Super helpful! Loved the recap.
