Geek Girl Riot’s exploring the weird & wonderful world of His Dark Materials. But first, some entertainment news…
Entertainment News Remember, remember the fifth of November (like it was yesterday). When the show first aired on idobi Radio last night folx were having fun with Guy Fawkes Day…which has been adopted by V For Vendetta fans. Sherin and Philip dig into that along with The Falcon and the Winter Soldier on Disney+ news (what’s with all the plus signs lately?). They also talk Lionheart, the Nigerian movie that was disqualified from the Oscars’ Best International Feature Film category because the language predominantly spoken in the film is English (AKA Nigeria’s national language). Um, what? Our Rioters discuss.
His Dark Materials Now for the main event: His Dark Materials has enchanted us with its dark world of science, magic, and dust. In this spoiler-free preview, Sherin and Philip break down the new HBO series and share the parts that enthralled them. While they haven’t read the novels by Philip Pullman (at least not in a very long time), this segment is about to get you geared up and ready to dive right into His Dark Materials, which airs every Monday at 9pm ET on HBO.
