    SyFy cancelled The Expanse, in a completely unprecedented move. Bunch of dimwits.

    "Oh, but it's sooo expensive!" Yes, you idiots. SciFi series usually are.

    Did he who made the lamb make thee?

    I read that SyFy only makes money when the show airs on their cable channel, but most viewers see it via streaming, after it runs on the SyFy Channel. So it's not just that the show is expensive, it's that the channel doesn't make enough from it. I'm bummed at the cancel, I really like the show.

    In other news...

    Been watching season 1 of The Peaky Blinders on Netflix. I like it.
    The Rules
    Copper- behave toward others to elicit treatment you would like (the manipulative rule)
    Gold- treat others how you would like them to treat you (the self regard rule)
    Platinum - treat others the way they would like to be treated (the PC rule)

    Right after my post about Legion being the only show I'm currently watching, I got caught up on The Expanse and considered amending my earlier post. I wasn't too hooked on the first season, but the second season was markedly better and the third season is amazing. I seem to only get hooked on Sci-fi that doesn't have the viewership numbers to support it.

    Looks like the campaign to save it might be getting some traction. I've read elsewhere that Netflix already passed on it though, so Amazon would probably be the best bet. Which works fine for me, since that's where I'm watching it anyways.

    Yeah, I think the first season was by carried the top-notch world-building and production values the second season was better but was frustrating as for various reason, but the third season has been excellent so far.

    We've both been home sick so we decided to catch up on Flash. Binged season 3 and have now moved on to season 3 of Arrow. I generally despise season 3 of all shows, but I confess I've enjoyed both. The DC shows always make me much happier than the admittedly better-produced and better-crafted Marvel shows, even though there's a lot of passing the stupid-stick around, telegraphing important plot twists half a season in advance etc. I just wanna be happy and root unreservedly for the good guys.

    The last episode of The Americans was the best thing I have ever watched.

    Midway through season 3 and it keeps getting better and better. Excellent stuff. Tom Hardy's Jewish crime boss performance is particularly enjoyable.

    EDIT: I guess there's no "the". It's just Peaky Blinders.

    The Looming Tower

    Excellent dramatisation of the actual events leading up to 9/11 and the pursuit of OBL, and the intelligence conflicts between the CIA and the FBI which may have contributed to the attack. Based on the book by Lawrence Wright.
    Jeff Daniels stars.

    Halfway through the series. Recommended.
