Hah I know right - there are literally so many story arcs going on at once in that show right now lmao But yes! I did see the first episode of "His Dark Materials". Admittedly I went into it expecting HBO to under-perform due to Game of Thrones withdrawal/relapse. I felt "oh crap here we go another fantasy possible clone..." nope I was so wrong. It was a splendid first episode I enjoyed James McAvoy in his role as Asriel (well cast) and to my pleasant surprise - from Logan, Dafne Keen! as Lyra; She's doing great. The show has character actors I've recognized from other HBO properties which is always nice (great actors) it's high production value - spares no expense. Everything from costume design to set decoration to the cinematography is top notch! I've only seen the pilot episode so far; but I can only expect great things to come from what will likely be a great show.
