I was just gonna check in with @late on The Expanse.  I finally started the TV series and need to decide if I should hit the books first or if it doesn't matter.

...doesn't matter. In fact, the books might make the TV streaming less enjoyable. You'll always be worrying about the stuff they left out.

I'm thinking he got fed up and quit, decided he didn't want to play by the rules and got escorted out, or his health is doing it to him. I'm hoping it's not the latter.

Could get stuck in mud up past his knees up in Maine. Hopefully that didn't happen.

He got a case of bad luck and lost the boy that used to fish with him.  Then he caught a big fish.  There were lions on the beach and a bird on his rope and sharks.  An American tourist looked at the bones while he was drinking in a bar.

The boy brought him some beans and rice later.

In my massively unhumble opinion, ya gotta read the books first.

The first book is incredible. If you read the reviews, nobody says that, almost nobody. But for what I like and want, it's the best Space opera I've seen. They really had to tame Avarsala for the tv show, she's one of my favorite characters.

Great to hear.  Seems the general consensus.

Good to see you as well.  Just got off a conference call where one guy was discussing his parents in Portland who are distressed at being over-run by New Yorkers and Mass folks.

We haven't been getting out much, and for me not at all since I got something like the virus.

I heard rich New Yorkers descended on the Hamptons like a plague infected plague of locusts.

I am still arguing with myself over getting Prime so I can catch season 4 of The Expanse.

I'm pretty sure I'll lose that argument, but I'm not giving up without a fight.

I’m back on free prime again. They think I’ll miss when they charge my card. They did that last year. I didn’t sign up for it and I had it for a month or two before they tried to sneak in a charge. I told them I didn’t want it and didn’t order it. They returned the charge.
