Found that this is a series that seriously benefits from the extra oomph of HD. Blu-Ray version definitely recommended!
The politics in this show are the main driving force, but do not get a lot of screen time, surprisingly. First and foremost The Expanse is a character drama, with spurts of science fantasy action. Politics steps in to explain previous mysteries, or foreshadow events to come. Overall this mixture works well, and does not linger too long on one element or another. The action is not senseless, and the politics do not slow the pace of the show. The case is a diverse mixture of races and genders, and is full of strong characters and enigmas that play off each other well.
I highly recommend The Expanse for fans of sci-fi such as Firefly or Battlestar Galactica. This series is sometimes lauded as "Game of Thrones in space" which I find to be pandering and reductionist. Firefly fans can enjoy the repartee of a close-knit crew on a ship that isn't all it appears to be, while BSG fans can enjoy politics mingled with sci-fi critiques of morality and a sprinkling of action to entertain both crowds.
A note on the Blu-ray: Its perfectly serviceable, and you do get the Ultraviolet download, but there are next to no extras. Really. Just a couple of deleted scenes from the first episode.
