I don't have access to it (no BBC/HBO) but I am excited by proxy because I love these books too and I hope the adaptation is good! I did download the new book! But I haven't started reading it because I got distracted by another book!

I watched some of the first episode but didn't get hooked. I read the books a while ago and vaguely remember I would start it out thinking, "meh" and then read the whole thing and get the next one. I may be having the same reaction to this adaptation.
Ken's Super Duper Band 'n Stuff - Berkeley Social Scene - Tiny Robots - Seamus Collective - Semolina Pilchards - Cutie Pies - Explino! - Bravo Bros. - 2 from 14 - and more!

i would just like to remind everyone that Ken eats kittens - blue lang

I am VERY MUCH enjoying it so far. I don't know how much you want to know about it, but one thing that I think is great is that apparently it's two short seasons for the whole three books, and they've already started including elements from The Subtle Knife into the second episode. A good pacing choice I think for this kind of adaptation overall.
