Don't know anything about the books, but I think it's interesting Lin Manual Miranda is being pulled into a purely dramatic role, with no music or dancing to be seen.

I read the books, a long time ago. I liked them well enough, but take umbrage with some of Pullman's philosophical views as expressed in the themes of that series.

When I was younger
I would not have believed them
though a hundred had said it
and a thousand tongues had told
that I would sink to these ways
that I would fall on these days--
the days I have fallen on
the ways I have sunk into.
