The first episode is available online. I just watched it. I was pleased! About time we had a high quality sci fi epic. I think the books are kickass too!

Space opera for a new generation!

Thomas Jane is in it, so that immediately piqued my interest. Watched the first episode, it got me hooked. I will definitely watch this show when it hits SyFy in December.

First two episodes are very promising. Not seeing much of an overarching plot just yet, but the disparate threads have my attention.

solid show so far. not sure if it's going to have staying power but as of now i think it's been fairly good.

I'm a massive fan of the books that this show is based on, and was thrilled when I learned they were adapting them. I've been looking forward to this just as much as I have to Star Wars.

So far, this seems to be a faithful and very well done adaptation, and I'm really enjoying it. I think they're doing a great job of establishing the world, in these opening episodes, and setting up the narratives that will be ongoing.

Some strong performances by the actors too. I've watched the first four episodes now (3 and 4 are up on Syfy's website), and it's really heating up. The pacing of the storyline with Holden and crew is as manic as it should be, while Miller is doing his measured PI stuff, and Avasarala is neck-deep in politicking.

With TWD offseason and ITTB on its final episode...something has to fill the niche
