    His Dark Materials (HBO)

    Liked the premiere.

    I've never read the books but it had a very Narnia/Potter/Thrones hodgepodge kinda vibe to it. Not sure how long they're planning to go with it but it feels like the kinda thing that could potentially garner a massive audience.

    I'll check it out. I realized yesterday that there was a 2007 movie (The Golden Compass) based on the same source material. I vaguely remember seeing it and thinking it was pretty meh.

    The trailers for this show looked pretty good and I like that it's a BBC/HBO show too.

    It seemed ok. I'll keep watching. But definitely doesn't grab you like GOT or Westworld

    Agreed.

    I think I've seen 2-3 episodes at this point and I'm not sure I'll continue it. That's not a great endorsement for the show.

    I've fallen asleep a couple times during this season, so it seems like I shouldn't be disagreeing... but I've enjoyed the season overall. Comparing to GoT or Westworld season 1 is a high bar - it doesn't meet that. But I would say I've enjoyed it more than Westworld season 2.

    Compared to watchmen is also not even fair as what you should be watching on HBO right now.
