The problem with getting into The Expanse is that first season is incredibly boring all the way until the season finale. Sorry, nothing could be done about. Consider it very long (possibly unnecessary so) characters introduction. I urge you to give it another chance and least finish 1st and 2nd season.\nReminds me of DS9!!! Haven't seen Expanse, but when DS9 came out, I was bored to tears and just couldn't get into it. Gave it a second chance when they were doing re-runs years later. Was still bored. Fast forward 20 years and a co-worker convinced me to give it another shot but really stick with it. Well, after trudging my way through the first couple seasons, he was right! I ended up REALLY enjoying it. A lot! Kicked myself for not sticking with it decades prior as I was really out of the loop with the ongoing ST conversations. Haha.
