“His Dark Materials” is another “limited” series that has been reviewed for its third and final season. It is based on a three-book series, so three seasons of TV adaption makes perfect sense. I hope that more book-to-one-season-of-television adaptations are made going forward, because it offers more time to tell the story than a 2-hour movie, but not too much time, like an open-ended TV series adaptation would.
While it is not my favorite show on TV right now, it is up there. I think the cast is fantastic and the cinematography and visual effects look great. The Amber Spyglass, book three of the series, is my least favorite, and I have no idea how parts of it could be visualized the the screen, but I don’t have any doubts that “His Dark Materials” will do a really good job with it.
