    They're cancelling the show?

    They are doing one more season only. They aren't calling a cancellation tho. Book 7 starts off 30 years later with a completely new story. In a way it's fitting to end it with 6

    I just watched the first 4 ep in a row... the stakes after ep 4...the stakes... so damn good!!

    I read the books up until this point, but I find the show better in every way. I usually don't like it when they merge characters, but Drummer is money and one of the best decisions/castings the showrunners have made. Going to be some serious comeuppance!

    I can't believe Fred is dead. Who's going to run Tycho now? Did I hear him mention Anderson Dawes in that ep? He's been out of the picture for a while, hopefully he comes back, Jared Harris plays him perfectly. I can't wait to see what happens with the protmolecule too!

    This season seems to be drawing everything out way too much, these story lines are moving so slowly it’s frustrating. Definitely my least favorite so far, most likely because the crew is apart and I get it’s based on the book but they aren’t pulling it off very well imo

    That’s fine with me as long as I get an ending to the current story. Going to start watching this next week once episode 9 comes out.

    I like it better when the main cast is together.

    Loving this season. Although they're not together, each of the main characters have their own engaging story arcs.

    One more episode left. :(

    Out of all of them the only ones I care about this season is Amos/Peaches and Avasarala everything else seems so forced. I think they could have Accomplished everything in 5-6 episodes, to me the strength of the show is the crew interacting with each other.
    I haven’t read the books so that may be part of the reason I’m so disengaged this season but when I found out there was only one episode left I was pissed.

    I am not a big fan of the Naomi Nagata character but, for me, this is her best season so far. I really liked her grit, determination and ingenuity during her kidnapping ordeal while at the same time being emotionally torn being with her estranged son. I love lone survivor films Castaway, 127 Hours and Gravity, so I'm really enjoying Naomi's journey in the Chetzemoka.

    I have not read the books, can you explain a little on the two characters that was merged into Drummer?

    I only read up to season 5 (first four books) and about 5 short stories/novellas.

    There is no Drummer character in any of those. From what I understand one does come into play during book 5 or 6? I stopped just into Nemesis games (book 5, and season 5) as I enjoyed the show more.

    There's an OPA engineer called Sam Rosenberg who is part Drummer (old friend of Naomi). Anderson Dawes takes up much of her role with Fred Johnson in the books too. There's also another character called Bull (forget his actual name). He's an ex military guy who is a kind of part Drummer and Ashford.

    I liked the Bull character in the books, but collapsing him and Sam into Drummer/Ashford makes for stronger characters IMO. Drummer and Ashford are money!

    The only shitty thing is the lack of screen time for Dawes. Jarred Harris is one of my fav actors.

    I've only watched a couple of episodes of S5, so hopefully he's in it more. I've been saving them up for a big binge lol, might do it now!

    Pretty good season overall. Enjoyed it more than 4 but still below 2 and 3. I was afraid they were going to take it to slow but right when I thought that major shit started going down. Looking forward to the next season. I didn't enjoy the way they got rid of one of the characters but I guess in reality that would be one of the more realistic ways to go.

    This was by far the best episode of the season, next season I’m guessing will be much better since the crew will be back together. Amos talking to Holden was fucking funny as hell

    The actor for Alex, Cas Anvar, got MeToo'd so they needed to remove him from the show after they already shot his scenes. That's why it's so abrupt and not very emotional.

    Yea I knew about all that but still I feel like they could have set it up better. I guess when they found out though they just wanted something quick and simple to avoid having to continue to work with him and this scene he can do alone.

    No they didn't reshoot anything with him. His death scene is literally a still image from before they just added blood effects too.
