"Ad astra", lunar thriller in The Lounge Posted September 24 23 hours ago, tater said: . It's like The Expanse. I tried to watch it, didn't get super interested. Everyone told me to give it another try, so I did. I picked that episode where the guy did some kooky maneuvers near Jupiter. It was so stupid I turned it off right then, and never watched it again. You may want to pick another episode. IIRC the director stated that was done for story telling purposes. If anything trying to get realism correct its The Expanse. And it does it with a fantastic story. To each their own obviously, but i wouldn't write the show off based on that one scene. Because it does get alot right and goes above and beyond what any other form of media does to replicate space travel.
