There are a ton of reviews available by various media outlets. So far, the day of the first episode's release online, initial response seems overwhelmingly positive. That makes me smile.
I say this because I am a big fan of the books. A big fan. I mean, I haven't gotten this invested in a story and its universe since I watched Star Trek: The Next Generation in my teens.

The most important driver is passion for the Expanse - either the books or the show. Oh, I guess speaking and reading English helps too. :)
