Same dark thrills but across different worlds. That’s the best way, to sum up, season 2 of “His Dark Materials”.

As a fan of fantasy, I enjoy everything from “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald”, “Motherland: Fort Salem” to “Cursed”, irrespective of the platform it sits on.

I remember binge-watching the first season of “His Dark Materials” and just loving this murky world, where witches, daemons (animal companions to humans), magic and prophecies flourish.

Of course, I was also drawn to the “orphaned” Lyra Belacqua (aka Lyra Silvertongue), played by Dafne Keen.

Her fearlessness in trying to learn more about Dust in her world leads her on incredible adventures, which, inevitably, makes her more engaging to watch.
