The 2007 movie The Golden Compass brought in an all-star cast for a box-office bomb, so here at A Pod Has No Name, we needed to do the same. Our pod will probably make as much money.
Tom and I are joined by Chris and Jason to dive into The Golden Compass, but as a bonus, last week HBO dropped the first real look at His Dark Materials.
What is on tap…
- Sadly Shane was unable to join the full pod, but he gives his takes leading into the main event.
- As a Non-book Reader, Chris tries to predict The Subtle Knife
- “Leer”a vs. “Lie”ra
- Discuss the adult themes the series can tap into the movie could not.
- Around minute 50, Jason discusses his hatred of Big Little Lies.
Enjoy, and as always, ask us questions and submit theories on Twitter @APodHasNoName.
*** SPOILER ALERT ***
We start book two this week, The Subtle Knife. We plan to discuss Chapters 1 to 4 next week. His Dark Material world building begins!
