    Synopsis at the link: 'Bobbie makes a decision that changes her life forever.'






    Inside the Expanse 2X10



    Highlights:


    * It usually takes Amos a long time to connect with someone, but he connects with Prax right away, because he admires his mission to find his missing girl; Prax's connection to kids and wanting to protect them is the quickest way to Amos. Amos' worst fear is to become the people that abused him when he was younger and he can so easily become that guy. This is the first time that Amos is violent and attacks someone with real emotion and anger, rater than functional, taking care of a threat that made sense.

    * They wanted viewers to see a very overstressed, overpacked Earth through Bobbie's eyes, a moment where she really sees Earth for the first time. and it's more complicated than she was prepared for. She craves the nature side of Earth, but the beach they shot at was dirty and smelled. because of the algae.






    Syfy Wire's Cher Martinetti and Adam Swiderski join producers/universe creators Ty Franck and Daniel Abraham and discuss 2X10 (featuring special guest star Shawn Doyle who plays Errinwright)

    Highlights from the podcast:


    * Errinwright finally realized all his moves weren't getting him anywhere, so he needs an ally. Errinwright is looking down the road at history and seeing his empire's fate, this is their last chance to get into a war with Mars and win. He's been given the chance at a magic technology to ensure that and it's blown up in his face. Everything he's doing is from an almost altruistic motive, it's more about keeping Earth safe than saving his own hide, but he got way in over his head. Errinwright has been betrayed by Mao, he's very scared and is trying to rectify the situation. Errinwright is playing for time, he doesn't see a solution yet to the problem of Mao, proto-molecule and Mars- if he goes down for Eros, he won't be able to solve it, so he's buying time to figure it out. He's pleading with her to understand what he's doing and give him some time, which she does give him. Avasarala is both a mentor and a friend, but given their positions, he has power over her, the complexity of that fuels their dynamic and Errinwright's decisions, what it'll do to that relationship both politically and personally. Something now happens personally between Errinwright and Avasarala and the story becomes much more personal in how all this evolves, it's not just politics or what happens to Earth.

    * Everyone was so in love with what Shawn does, they looked for more excuses to show Errinwright scenes in S2, they love his story arc for S2 and found it the most interesting, they're excited to get to see the rest of his story in S3- that's when you have the climax of his story. Ty and Daniel's love and care for the story, the amount of attention they give to it is refreshing and impressive and inspires Shawn to commit 100%. Shohreh is a force of nature and you just try to keep up. Sometimes they have in depth discussions about their scenes, they have a great time together and she has a crazy sense of humor. . It was important that Errinwright be in the background for the first season, from a story telling perspective, which was interesting for him to play him and try and make him come alive while in the background. He tries not to play Errinwright as a mustache twirling villain. Only podcast listeners will understand this bit: In the last episode of the season Errinwright is shirtless, so Adam can check how his abs compare to Steven's. Adam's ongoing compilation of the perfect man: Steven Strait's abs, Terry Chen's soulful eyes and Errinwright's impressive hair.

    * Bobbie is unmoored- she had an identity and a role and that's gone now and died on Ganymede. Who she is now is up for grabs, a sense of not knowing how she fits into things and figure out what the rules are for her now. She's processing PTSD while all the people around her who should be helping her are manipulating and gaslighting her and trying to get her to do things she knows aren't right. There's a drone flying in her outside scene reading an ad about getting people on basics, the people there were unregistered births and the government doesn't know they exist (which is how Amos grew up). There has to be some reason why those people rather live the way they do than register with the government to get on basic. Basic is not money, it's services, it's not a pleasant way to live. Nobody has to be homeless, but they don't get autonomy to decide where and how to live. There's a lot of precedent in history of government sacrificing its soldiers, experimenting on who they're meant to represent and care for. Bobbie is facing a situation a lot of people faced before, who she's loyal isn't necessarily who she thought they were.

    * They don't feel they were being subtle with Amos' backstory, during his talk with Prax. They even referenced Amos' backstory in S1 in the bar scene with Alex. There's a reason why his childhood is so terrible he became Amos. There's a difference between his violence as a means to an end and the chicken can scene. Amos' nickname on Twitter is MurderSnuggles and Wes is aware of it. There's nobody funnier on set than Wes, especially him imitating someone else talking.

    * They love Naomi's line of 'every shitty thing you do makes the next shitty thing easier'- it's the line of the hour, we're the good guys now how long do we keep being the good guys. Holden has the longest story arc so his changes are the most subtle, he plays that he's ok, but Eros has broken him, the proto-molecule has become his white whale and anything he does to accomplish that goal is justified, he's becoming more like Miller. He killed those doctors without borders ship in 2X05 to make sure the proto-molecule dies with Eros, if there's more proto-molecule out there and not all destroyed, then killing them was just murder, in Holden's mind, so he has to destroy it all so that action remains justified.





    The Science and Entertainment Exchange, which is part of the National Academy of Sciences, recently hosted a panel with real life scientists - as well as the cast and producers of the Expanse - to highlight the real life science the show features. I didn't get a chance to watch it for highlights.

    More than 230 people were killed yesterday, many of them asleep in their beds, when a giant wall of water carrying tons of mud and debris surged through the city of Mocoa, Colombia, after heavy rains caused a nearby river to overflow. Many people are still missing, hospitals are overwhelmed and blood supplies are running low. You can read more about the tragedy HERE.


    Translation: "I follow with my prayers the victims of this tragedy that happened in my country. I call for all possible humanitarian help for the affected. Shak"

    She then tweeted a link for UNICEF donations: HERE.
    NOTE:
    Website in Spanish. Donations in Colombian pesos. 1 dollar = 2846,45 colombian pesos. Take the value in colombian pesos and divide by 2846,45, you'll get the amount in dollars.

    You can also donate to the Colombian Red Cross which is on site helping: HERE.
    You can buy fresh water which will be delivered to Mocoa through Litros Que Ayudan, a Red Cross partner: HERE.

    The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus was asked why his fan-favorite character, Daryl Dixon, has never hooked up with anyone in the show's seven seasons. The 48-year-old actor, who was recently spotted making out with Diane Kruger, responded:

    “It’s such a thing, the love story, you know what I mean? Once you throw someone up against a tree, it’s over. I kind of don’t know that Daryl is mature enough to do that.”

    “Let Rick get all the girls. I’m like Spock on ‘Star Trek’ and he’s like Captain Kirk. He gets all the ladies and I sit in the background and say weird things.”

    Due to the extreme "shipping" wars among fans (some want Daryl to be with Carol, while others are holding out hope that Beth will miraculously come back to life after being shot in the head and buried so she can be Daryl's bae), he refused to say who he would want Daryl to be with: “It’s super weird. People come to blows about it.”

    Promo for tonight's new episode, Eggs for Days : After the Belcher parents have a little too much fun hiding Easter eggs, the entire family gets enlisted to find the lone egg quickly rotting in its hiding place.



    Highlights :
    - Discussed the new season of Archer : Dreamland and showed a spoilerish clip, so bit of warning
    - Stephen asked about the unfortunate former name of Archer's spy agency
    - Discussed the subtle differences between Bob's voice and Archer's voice "Bob sounds like Archer sad."
    - H. Jon recorded a jazz record (no joke) : JAZZ DAREDEVIL - Well I Should Have* (*learned to play piano)
    - Stephen, having no skills at playing the trumpet, joins H. Jon for a performance



    While not Bob's Burgers related, wanted to share this funny clip of Kristen on a recent episode of Late Night with Seth Meyers. She shares the story of how her co-star on Last Man on Earth, January Jones, shared a beauty secret with her that she was eager to try. Worth it for the photos she took of the ordeal.

    Cheating a bit since this was uploaded a while ago, but it's probably my favorite song of theirs to date, and they've got quite an impressive discography. I was reading how folks felt this song for their 100th episode seemed perfect for a series finale, and while I'm thankful that's not the case, I totally agree.
    ---
    According to the schedule I saw online, next episode isn't until April 23rd...why FOX? And while Netflix mercifully spared Seasons 1 and 2 from cutting out of their lineup, I'm going to need them to bring back the rest and Season 6 in the near future.

    Also, just read that last week's "Aint Miss Debatin'" episode didn't air for Canada, is this true? I hope you guys get a chance to watch it since it was pretty damn good, especially with the guest stars : Rhys Darby, Jon Daly, Jim Gaffigan, Keegan-Michael Key, and Nick Kroll.

    In an interview with ICv2, Marvel's exec David Gabriel talked about the downturn in Marvel's sales.

    What we heard was that people didn't want any more diversity. They didn't want female characters out there. That's what we heard, whether we believe that or not. I don't know that that's really true, but that's what we saw in sales.

    We saw the sales of any character that was diverse, any character that was new, our female characters, anything that was not a core Marvel character, people were turning their nose up against. That was difficult for us because we had a lot of fresh, new, exciting ideas that we were trying to get out and nothing new really worked.

    It was the old things coming back in that time period, three books in particular, Spider-Man Renew Your Vows, that had Spider-Man and Mary Jane married, that worked. The Venom book worked and the Thanos book worked. You can take what you want out of who might be enjoying those three books, but it is definitely a specific type of comic book reader, comic book collector that really liked those three series.


    After his comments attracted a lot of controversy, Gabriel released a new statement to ICv2.

    "Discussed candidly by some of the retailers at the summit, we heard that some were not happy with the false abandonment of the core Marvel heroes and, contrary to what some said about characters “not working,” the sticking factor and popularity for a majority of these new titles and characters like Squirrel Girl, Ms. Marvel, The Mighty Thor, Spider-Gwen, Miles Morales, and Moon Girl, continue to prove that our fans and retailers ARE excited about these new heroes. And let me be clear, our new heroes are not going anywhere! We are proud and excited to keep introducing unique characters that reflect new voices and new experiences into the Marvel Universe and pair them with our iconic heroes.

    "We have also been hearing from stores that welcome and champion our new characters and titles and want more! They've invigorated their own customer base and helped them grow their stores because of it. So we're getting both sides of the story and the only upcoming change we're making is to ensure we don't lose focus of our core heroes."
