    Can't wait! I read these books so many times as a kid, everything I've seen so far looks amazing.

    I never saw the movie, but this actually looks pretty awesome based off that new trailer. I love me a good old fashioned fantasy epic and it also looks like it's going to be a lot darker than the movie version as well.

    This looks great and already seems like it has more substance and explanation than the movie.

    Just saw the trailer and it looks good! I didn’t realise this was a TV show for some reason. I hope it has a solid budget.

    HBO has a really good track record for me. I can't imagine this going badly. :)

    Looks inviting, love the cast, and look. Can't wait to fully immerse in this show.

    Meanwhile James Mangold where is our X-23 sequel? Dafne Keen Fernández is only going to get even busier after this!

    You do realize Disney now owns 20th Century Fox and the X-Men again, right?

    I never saw the failed movie adaption that got greenlit when every studio was looking for YA series of books to adapt in the wake of the success of Potter, but I really liked what I saw in that tailer, I think I'll give it a try.

    This looks like such a better adaptation of these books than that movie was, it's not even funny.

    Watched the first episode yesterday.

    Just 1 episode in and already looks better and darker than the Golden Compass film.

    My partner (who's a big fan of the books) also says the show tries to capture most of the details that are in the books.

    The first episode of this show was pretty solid. I'm already really intrigued by the world this is set in and visually it's just gorgeous to look at. Also, those marten Daemons are so goddamn cute lol.

    I was kinda meh on the fist episode to be honest. I can't help it; talking animals makes the whole thing feel like a really dark Disney cartoon to me, lol. I also thought it all seemed a bit disconnected, like the Gyptians look like they come from a more modern time period than everyone in Oxford, who look like their stuck in 1898. And then the Magisterium looks like they're from the future. Maybe that's the way it's supposed to be though, I don't know (haven't read the books). Then again, after Watchmen, maybe anything is going to struggle to hold my interest, lol.

    However, Ruth Wilson, James McEvoy, Dafne Keen and Clarke Peters all bring it, like I expected them to so maybe this will be more engaging as it goes on. On a side note, does anyone else think Ruth could play a really good gender-bent Joker? That smile and those sinister eyes, man.

    Really dug the the first episode. Ruth Wilson’s gonna kill it as Mrs. Coulter.

    Yes, I have thought this before! Whenever I imagine Flashpoint’s Martha Wayne Joker in a movie, she’s who I picture.

    Disappointing first episode. Really don't like how Tom Hooper directs anything

    Ah yeah I forgot about Flashpoint... she'd be perfect for that!
