    Not planning to either.

    Yeah it’s a pretty terrible one.

    I don’t think His Dark Materials as a Series lived up entirely to the expectations of the book but that’s largely because it’s more or less impossible to do that. I feel like it did a good enough job and was heavenly in comparison to that dreadful adaptation with Kidman (as good Kidman was in that it was a complete car crash of a film). Wilson and McAvoy should have been nominated at the Emmys this year.

    FYC OSCARS : VANESSA KIRBY FOR "PIECES OF A WOMAN", AMANDA SEYFRIED FOR "MANK", CHADWICK BOSEMAN FOR "MA RAINEY'S BLACK BOTTOM", PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN (BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY).

    Another TV adaptation that does the novel justice is the 1985 miniseries version of Anne Of Green Gables. It follows the novel pretty closely, and the parts that are left out are minor enough that they didn’t really need to be included. The costumes, sets, and cinematography still look gorgeous to this day. If I ever wanted to move to Canada, I’d consider moving to Prince Edward Island just for its sheer beauty alone. The performances are all amazing, but Megan Follows as Anne Shirley and Colleen Dewhurst as Marilla Cuthbert are absolutely perfect!
