Keep with it. I tried starting this show a couple times and couldn't get into it, but once it really gets going its very good. Just a slow start.

Season 1 was pretty mediocre imo, but it picks up in season 2, and season 3 was good shit.

I hope there's gonna be less politics and more action. I want shit to be blown up and people dying left and right.
Also, they need to have Bobbie do a long sweaty workout scene in every episode. She's by far the best thing in that show. I'd let her hurt me

As others have said, stick with it. Thinking back to the first few episodes it's hard to imagine where the story goes but the whole path is absolutely worth it for all the ways in which it builds out the setting.

Started Season 1, was pissed in the first episode when they killed the one hot chick. By Episode 4 I was laughing that some one must have taken a page from GRRM with all the deaths and when I read one of the writers was the former assistant to GRRM I laughed harder. Think I am on Episode 7, I like it but I don't love it. Tom James is a plus for me, but that hair style...
you are right at the point where it starts getting a lot better. the beginning of season 1 was pretty boring to me. stuck with it, tho, and the first two seasons get progressively better, at almost an exponential rate. might be a little extreme of a suggestion, i suppose, but i think you've gotta give this show at least til Season 2 Episode 5 before you decide you just don't like it. if you get there and aren't pretty blown away then the show just isn't for you.

The books don't have a lot of 'splosions and fighting if I recall.

So if you're after war in space, you're after a different show.

S3 is definitely the most organized of the 3 so far. S1 was a confusing mess even for me, but it had been a few years since I read the first 2 books.

Need to start watching season 3 soon. First 2 seasons were decent if not particularly great. Still feel obligated to support since even decent SciFi shows are uncommon enough that I want the genre to grow/improve.

You really should as the 4k version is pretty damn nice.

The old ladies voice is too fucked up to be on TV, honestly I want to mute it anytime shes around. Its like she swallowed a frog and is using it to talk with.

Maybe I'm conflating memories from Altered Carbon but I don't remember old rich people on earth being that aging that poorly in the books.

She is a pretty ruthless character I like her a lot. As for age, it hasn't been said how old she is but the show did say the average lifespan on Earth was 125 or so so.
