    Season 3 fired up last night.

    There's been a fair bit of discussion over the series, figured I'd spin up a new thread.

    Anyone else catch the season opener?

    I'll admit right up front, I'm a huge fan of the books.

    Last night's episode was, I feel, a solid 6.5/10, and kind of set up the direction for this season, I think. Nothing really new and exciting, really.

    The only rather "meh" part I found was

    them getting off the ship. It seemed like a lot of mediocre action and suspense in trying to get away from the nasty incoming missiles. In the end, I didn't find that part all that exciting or new... pretty contrived and cliched, that was done (I suspect) to re-assert Bobbie Draper as a bad-ass (even though she apparently had her ass handed to her by stepping on a door-frame... really?) as well as let some CGI guys live out their "I can do an Iron Man suit scene too!" fantasies.

    Still, I'm looking forward to tuning in next week.

    They just announced the shows cancellation after this season. Too bad, was just getting into it.

    That really sucks. Oh well, if you're inclined, the books are great.
