    Dave, a title change would allow the thread to remain current, perhaps avoiding duplicate threads. Something like: Amazon is streaming all three seasons of The Expanse, in HD, edited for TV, with only the first two seasons free on Prime, while also similarly streaming the unedited UHD versions of the first two seasons? That may need some editing. :rolleyes:

    Is the reddit claim correct? Is the non-UHD season 3 now being sold on Amazon an edited for TV version?

    [​IMG]While I wait for Season 3 in 4K to be released (is "dumped" the word?) on Amazon Prime, I've borrowed all the novels and novellas that are the basis for the tale from local libraries for my Kindle. The first novel in the series, "Leviathan Wakes" is a lot of fun. The video versions have helped me to more completely visualize the action, and the story is engrossing. It's full speed ahead as I race to get beyond Season 2.

    I’ve listened to the first three books, to be up to where the show is. I like the books, but I think the show is better.

    [​IMG]Must read faster! If I finish Caliban's War, will I be up to the end of Season 2? If so, I'll then need to decide whether reading first or viewing first is better. No way I'll have Abaddon's Gate done before Season 3 hits Prime on 8 February. I'm assuming the 4K UHD version will also be available. Otherwise, I'll wait for it and have time to read the next novel in the series.

    It's not surprising that Netflix has lost the European streaming rights after Amazon started producing Season 4.

    After 7 months, the title of this thread will be accurate!

    I think so: the first two seasons are the first two books and the third season is the third book.

    I need season four so I can then watch it so I can then read the fourth book! :)

    Also good news, Book 8 is up for pre-order. Last I read, the book series was planned for 9 books total, so it's encouraging the show could have a fully mapped storyline to adapt.

    I am working my way through Season 3, and this seems like two seasons wrapped into one. About halfway through the episodes, the storyline is wrapped up and a new one begins. It was very strange.

    Remind me what the transition point was. I remember that happening, but it’s more jumbled now between books and TV in my mind. :)

    The entire proto-molecule / Earth - Mars war is wrapped up after Episode 6, which ends with the proto-molecule construct on Venus rising and leaving the planet. Episode 7 picks up several months later, with Harden's crew split up in different parts of the system, a new government in place, and the proto-molecule construct now transformed into a ring at the end of the solar system. It's really the start of another season.

    Ah right. So that split is the end of book 2 and start of book 3.
