Just caught up with the first episode. Fuck. Me. Running. After three and a half years in the wilderness and not really watching anything, this is why I still have a TV. Granted, I love the book. Hard. This makes me an easy sell and perhaps not the best critic, but it's good to be invested in a series again. A familiar feeling brought about by something that's old and new at the same time is very welcome. If you've not read the book, do so. I sent my Dad a copy for his birthday to add some spice to our frequent theological debates, and he reacted to it almost as powerfully as I did in 2001. This is a story that will stick with you, challenge your views and change you if you allow it to. I urge everyone to experience it on page and/or small screen and let it work its magic.
