Fan of the comics here. 4 episodes in, and I am stunned. They made a great SANDMAN show. Wow. It is such a smart and effective adaptation. Mostly faithful, but with little changes to connect the stories more and provide more dramatic weight. The casting is mostly great (Sturridge is a dream as Dream) and obviously a lot of care, effort, and money went into the execution of the show. "Hope in Hell" really knocked my socks off. They really captured the core of what made the comics so different, engaging, and provocative. The intertwining of ideas, of dreams, through so much darkness with a thread towards trying to find a reason to believe in humanity, and to find hope. A story about how stories can give hope, as can dreams. Obviously not everything translates and maybe a couple concessions were made to the conventional TV construct, but still, wow. I am thrilled so far. I have heard DOLL'S HOUSE doesn't work quite as well but, even so, I can't help but look forward to watching the rest.
