I can’t tell you how long I’ve been waiting to watch this. It’s taken a lot of restraint not to talk about it every second of every day. His Dark Materials aired for the first time this Monday. I’ve been hearing about it for at least a year. I was so excited when they finally announced the release date!
For those who don’t know, His Dark Materials is a television adaptation based on the trilogy written by Phillip Pullman. I originally read it for the first time ever in high school. My best friend (at the time) insisted I do so. I’m glad she did. I fell in love with it. I’m reading it now for the second time and loving it even more!
I can’t lie and say that I was fully excited about the television show. The trilogy was originally adapted into movie (The Golden Compass) years ago. I wasn’t fond of the movie at all. I was afraid the television show might have the same result. My opinion changed when I saw the very first trailer. I am not ashamed to admit that I obsessively watched every trailer that has been released since then.
I’ve only seen the first episode. It’s the only one released so far. I loved it. Most, if not all, of the characters practically walked out of the book. They did take some liberties with the plot and twisted scenes around, but it wasn’t horrible. I really enjoyed it. I’m looking forward to seeing where things progress in the show. See what they added in and what they took out.
My mother and boyfriend are watching the show with me as well, but I’m curious to know who else is watching this show. I’m curious to know other people’s thoughts. I’m so excited. You know they have book clubs, but do they have tv clubs? I guess that would be just something where everybody watches it together, huh? LOL! I really enjoyed the pilot episode and I hope my adoration for the show maintains.
I have watched this since the first episode. I’ve only seen three episodes. There are currently four out. I have about a week’s worth of shows to catch up on, this show included.
It’s a pretty good show. I’m not going to lie. I have really enjoyed it. I haven’t fully learned the characters names yet, but they are all amazing and fierce in their own ways. I even like the antagonist. The actor puts a touch on his evil ways that can give you the chills. The previews are a bit misleading and they don’t really give the show justice.
Basically, a forensic psychologist teams up with a priest in training and a church to work on cases that are deemed paranormal or evil. The church assigns the cases to the priest. He works with our forensic psychologist and another gentlemen (in addition to not being good with names, I forgot what he does). The gentlemen has my sarcasm and he’s very skeptical.
I was expecting more from this show, but I have enjoyed it very much. It has been a surprisingly good show and I can’t wait to see how the show unfolds. I just hope it sticks. It seems shows I really enjoy get canceled all the time!
I saw previews for this show and I knew deep down that I would love this show. So I put it on my recording list. I’m three episodes into it so far and I’m not wrong yet. I love it. It’s kind of like Stephanie Plum if she was a bit bolder and edgier. I guess I should say she’s the Stephanie Plum I want Stephanie Plum to be. Her name is Dex and she’s pretty awesome if I do say so myself. I’m still learning the show and the names, so I won’t say names in case I get it wrong. But she has an awesome bartender type best friend. An adorable brother. And the cop that she occasionally teams up with is pretty hot. He’s also very compassionate.
I am aware that this show is based on a graphic novel series. I’m also aware that I have not read the series. Thank to this show though, I plan to. I just need to find a way to get access to them all. Graphic Novels are hard for me because I can’t tell if I’m getting the right copies. If I could buy them properly, I’d probably have a bookshelf or two dedicated to them.
I have really been enjoying this show. I hope that I can find somebody else that enjoys it as well so I can talk to them about it. I put the link on the picture. The first two episodes are available to watch. Which is pretty awesome! It’s actually how I watched the first episode. I didn’t find out about the show until the day after the first one aired. So glad I saw the advertisement!!!
