I have the season sitting on my DVR unwatched. Watch or delete?

You should watch it all.  I even like it and I'm not a huge science fiction fan for the most part.  Between this show and Better Call Saul, I'm a happy tv watcher right now.

The second season is waiting on my DVR.  I had mixed feelings about season 1.  I will queue Season 2 up and burn through it one of these weekends.  Thanks everyone.

I'm a couple episodes into the second season and am noticing the typical syfy slide.  Weaker acting, poor plot choices, etc.  Especially those martian marines.  I really hope they all die horribly, they are barely tolerable.  Still solid performances from a lot of the leads though.

Why don't you try our other games?

The plot choices are from the books.

I think the acting's been great. Plot is from the books, and it's mostly great. Not sure how I'll feel about a particular character from the 3rd book that I didn't like so much, but otherwise, fine.

If you don't like all those marines, well, keep watching.

Watched through E5 last night.  Much better.  Totally hooked again.

Frankly, the transition to the 2nd book's plot is rough--it's even rough in the books.

Reading the 5th book now and pretty surprised at the status quo shakeup in the middle. Will be interested if the show gets that far.

Planes? Shit, I'm terrified to get in my car now!

The acting's mostly been good but one scene in the last episode of the season made me cringe.


Other than that though, loved season 2. I'm itching to read the books but I think I'll wait until the show is finished.
