His Dark Materials final season

Oh MAN. I can’t even think of a way to describe those last two episodes apart from, “They actually did it, the absolute mad lads.” Mrs Coulter’s final destiny is a scene that’s stuck in my mind for decades and finally I got to see it in the flesh, as it were. Outstanding performances, outstanding effects, everything. Man, nothing blows your mind like seeing a book passage that haunted you as a kid fully realized in live-action.

And WILL AND LYRA! Oh my gosh. Dafne Keen and Amir Wilson have amazing careers ahead of them, I cannot believe how well they brought that one final, heartwrenching scene to life. Hearing Keen deliver these wonderful lines, oh my god-

“When we do find each other again, no-one will be able to tear us apart. We’ll be joined so tightly. Every atom of me and every atom of you. And when they use our atoms to make new life, they’ll have to take two. One for you and one for me. We’ll be in the flowers and the sunbeams.

WHAT an adaptation. I know it isn’t completely true to the books but they made some great changes (Mary Malone falling in love with a woman rather than a man, for example) and I’ve loved every minute of it.
