I'm just going to echo that I'm having a lot of trouble with the show because I'm constantly distracted by the severe lack of demons. What books are they adapting? Even hiring a pack of trained dogs to run around during the busier scenes would have greatly improved things.I also don't get why they got rid of the dried fish for Billy. That entire sequence was one of the highlights of the entire trilogy and was also an important character moment for Lyra.I sure hope 90% of the budget went towards ***spoilers I guess, but it's pretty obvious what's coming up*** the bear fight, but I'm prepared to be disappointed.
I liked the show for the most part but really have trouble with shows hurting children for dramatic effect. It doesn't achieve the goal of shock and sadness. Just makes me think "why am I watching this?" Bad enough with random children but the last episode makes me want to rethink watching another season.Next season: the only way to create dust is by smashing an infant's head into a bunch of puppies.
