I'm not sure who the "His" is in His Dark Materials (I haven't read the books). I'm not even clear what the "Materials" are (the Dust? but I don't know yet exactly what that is, either). I do get the "Dark". And I also thought that last night's action-packed episode 1.6 moved preternaturally quickly.
Well, last night's episode 1.8 of Watchmen was my favorite so far. All the pieces came together; not easy in a time-travel story, especially when the time traveler is some kind of god, Dr. Manhattan, who, among his many impressive powers, has the ability to live and act in all times that he exists, at the same time, all of the time.
His Dark Materials 1.5 on HBO earlier tonight upped the evil of the villains, making them, well, the equivalent of Nazis.
To be blunt: I thought Emergence 1.8 was, well, a weak episode. Here's why:
A fast-moving episode 1.7 of Emergence. I hope the rest of the season continues at this pace.
Emergence checked in with another strong episode — 1.6 — and brought us to two surprising revelations. Both concern Kindred.
