Entertaintment News - 'His Dark Materials' casts barely bearable light on fantasy series http://entertainment.worldnewsoffice.com/entertainment/his-dark-materials-casts-barely-bearable-light-on-fantasy-series/ Undaunted by "The Golden Compass" failing to find the north star, "His Dark Materials" takes another swing -- and miss -- at adapting Philip Pullman's novels, this time as a BBC and HBO series.
