    I'm not a fan of extensive cursing, have very little tolerance for gore, and almost none for explicit sexual content, so it seems like most shows that are aimed at adults and aren't on network TV make use of their additional "freedom" to add a lot of elements I could do without.

    Though The Expanse is based on books, right? Somehow, most of the stuff I like to avoid in visual media doesn't bother me as much on the page (though cursing still annoys me when used heavily in print, too). Maybe I should look into the novels.
    Seriously though give it a shot. I haven't read the books but trust me when i say i think youll like it despite the swearing. The characters and writing are fantastic. It isnt like scarface with close to 200 f bombs. Theres barely any nudity if your worried if its like game of thrones. I even said without the nudity game of thrones is still very well written same for the expanse

Mainly because I feel like there is little enough decent SF on the big screen, I hate to see a good SF setup "wasted" on a type of movie I have no interest in. It just irks me when there is a movie that looks, at first glance, like it could be a cool SF movie, then as the trailer progresses it becomes clear that, nope, its another monster in space movie. I have a special prejudice against Alien because of this, as I see its success as a major contributing factor to that ongoing trend.

      I do recall somewhat enjoying the first couple of Terminator movies back in the day, but I have little interest in rewatching them.
      I get that. It's a tightrope, though. I assume you'd acknowledge that Star Trek itself has crossed into horror with say the abduction episode of TNG and some of the Borg stuff?

        Didn't really like the abduction episode (though that could be because I thought it was dumb, rather than any association with horror). Certainly wasn't a fan of the grotesque space monster that was inhabiting the body of Remmick, and controlling all the little crawlies that were taking over members of Starfleet.

        Somehow the Borg didn't usually bother me so much (though I could have done without some of the more graphic assimilation stuff). I guess, while they are a bit horrific, they are generally pretty straightforward in their operation. They don't typically jump out at you. They don't generally gorily mutilate people (they obviously DO mutilate people, but it is usually the result that you see, not the process).

        • The type of horror that I really dislike is the kind where the horrific elements are essentially unbeatable. Stuff where some survivors might get away, but the horrible evil is undefeated, or at least clearly will come back. There is a really depressing negativity to a lot of horror that bothers me probably as much as any of the jump scares and gore. Perhaps that's why I can tolerate some horrific elements in a setting that I otherwise enjoy, so long as the general tone is positive.
