'The Expanse' TV Show Recaps Season 1 With Cats


'The Expanse' is a television show that we over here at That Cat Blog have not had the pleasure of watching - YET! However they are clearly roping in a new demographic with their unusual Season 1 recap video - starring CATS!

According to Wikipedia, 'The Expanse' is

... an American space opera/mystery science fiction drama television series on Syfy, based on the series of novels by James S. A. Corey. Set in a future where humanity has colonized the Solar System, it follows United Nations executive Chrisjen Avasarala, police detective Josephus Miller, and ship's officer Jim Holden and his crew as they unravel a conspiracy that threatens peace in the system and the survival of humanity.

Seeing as how we don't have cable (shout out to Hulu and Netflix!), and are obsessed with cats - which takes up 98% of our time and energy - we haven't gotten around to checking out this new show. Also - can we just address the show's description as a "space opera/mystery science fiction drama"?! We're already intrigued.

Thankfully, this show's producers (or mar-CAT-ing team?) are clearly big cat lovers and have decided to release a YouTube video recapping season 1 of the series - using cats as the actors, and cleverly calling it a "recat".

This video is filled with cat puns, like turning the character "Julie Mao":


Into... "Julie Meow":


And what more do cat people love just as much as cats? Cat PUNS!

This is the dashing cat-version of dashing human actor, Steven Strait:

Additionally, they have released a second "Behind-the-Scenes" video of the making of the "recat," featuring more furry cuteness:

This reminds us of the Key & Peele all-cats version of the Keanu movie trailer from last year. Don't you wish ALL trailers/recaps could be done with cats?! Can someone please start this production company already?
