I came across this new fantasy drama on Netflix today. Although the genre is not my exact cup of tea, I figured to give it a chance since it's produced by Warner Bros and it had an average rating on IMDB of 8.1!
For something available on Netflix that is pretty rare, lmao.
Oh yeah, Charles Dance is also on the trailer. I love that old dude and I find it hard to resist him!
Sandman is based on the comic book of the same name by DC comics, which I have never heard of before, so I didn't have any expectations prior to clicking the play button.
Here's the synopsis from wiki:
In 1916, Dream / Morpheus, the king of dreams and one of the seven Endless, is captured in an occult ritual. After being held captive for 106 years, Morpheus escapes and sets out to restore order to his kingdom of the Dreaming.
So far, I have finished the first two episodes of the 10 available.
As I said the genre isn't exactly my cup of tea, but so far I enjoy what I have seen. I like the story, the character building, the pacing etc etc. My only problem is with the cgi that often felt a bit cheap to me, but I have a feeling that was intentional to give "dreamy" vibes to fit the whole concept better.... Or they were just cheap fucks, lmao.
Dunno if it stays true to the comics, not that I give a shit😂
Anyways, I'll go watch episode 3 now, hopefully the Sandman won't become the Poopman midway through 🙈💩
