    I haven't read them for about 15 years but yes.

    I remember being so, so disappointed by the Golden Compass movie. The cast was so good (better than the cast for this show) but everything else was just wrong. I feel like maybe the world wasn't ready for it too; in a world where a movie with a talking raccoon is insanely popular, I think this has a better shot at being successful. Wasn't helped by the Christian lobbyists too of course..

    Well yeah, they excised an entire theme of the books.

    Yep; I don't think that is the reason it didn't hit with the general populace though

    Chris Weitz came off of directing American Pie movies to direct Golden Compass, so i wasn't surprised it sucked, given the book itself was bad anyway.

    Sam Elliott? 100% Agreed. Much better casting than this TV series - Lin-Manuel Miranda? Yeah, nah.
