Re: His Dark Materials (Adventure, Fantasy, Drama, Family)

very enjoyable. acting seems fine. I have never read the books but do have a BBC dramatised version on cd I have never listened to. I will have to dig them out. The Daily Mail in the UK did a hatchet  job on the new series though not liking the anti religeous slant esp as it is broadcast on a Sunday. One criticism made in other places was the matter of the daemons  ie there werent enough of them as they should be all over the place. But thats  just a money thing? Shame the film bombed as it needs the rest of the story to make any sense. Always a danger.

Season 2 is really good so far! I'm glad I didn't give up in a season 1 low moment. smile

While I've enjoyed season 2 more than season 1, the season 2 finale felt a bit rushed... like they said "Let's see who else we can kill before the season ends so we can lower the budget for the third and final season a bit." cool

Agreed, i gave up after a few episodes in season 1, but was curious and liked season 2.

There are only three books in the His Dark Materials - Northern Lights, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass. They have covered the first two books in the first two seasons respectively, hence it makes sense that there will be only three seasons.

Also,  Phillip Pullman (the author) has recently released two new books in the His Dark Materials universe, which are part of The Book of Dust trilogy. Book one - La Belle Savauge which takes place when Lyra is a baby, The second book, The Secret Commonwealth takes place

Spoiler

when Lyra is an adult of about 20 (so after the His Dark Materials events)

, and the The third book hasn't yet been written.

All this to say that even though the show is ending after season three, it might not be the last time we see Phillip Pullmans work on the small screen.

I also recommend reading the books if you haven't already. I loved them.
