New Podcast! The Escapist Movie Podcast – “Talking The Expanse and Retro Sci-Fi with Ty Franck”

The Escapist have launched a movie podcast, and I was thrilled to join Jack Packard for the seventeenth episode of the year, with a very special guest – the wonderful Ty Franck, co-creator of The Expanse. Ty joined us to talk about seventies science-fiction, in particular Logan’s Run.

New Escapist Column! On What “The Expanse” Learned from “Game of Thrones”…

I published a new In the Frame piece at The Escapist this evening. Since I binged The Expanse and since the season finale is out this week, I figured it was worth taking a look at the show in comparison to Game of Thrones.

From its launch, The Expanse has been likened and compared to Game of Thrones. Part of this is simply down to the show being an epic within a familiar genre framework, but there is something to the comparison. While the comparison might be somewhat obvious and straightforward, it is also informative: not only in the ways that The Expanse evokes Game of Thrones, but the ways in which The Expanse differs from Game of Thrones.
