I'd say the show was overall fine. But is nobody gonna mention the way the guy talks? Like a poor imitation of how he seems to think an edgy 90s movie protagonist should talk, which would already be bad enough if done well. Took me forever to get used to.

But the comic was first published in 1989, and that's kind of how he talks in it.

2020.  Meh.

The words, yeah. Those are fine. But the voice? Weird half-mumbled pseudo-introspective tone?

It doesn't bother me at all, I think it fits his character.

Wow, wow, WOW! I just watched 1x6 The Sound of Her Wings. I didn't expect this. Sooo good! <3

No surprise: it's got the highest rating of all 11 episodes.

Yep, and strangely enough it's my favourite of all the comics too.  Great stuff - moving, powerful and just bloody great.

2020.  Meh.

Hmmm.  They've so changed so much from the books.  So much.

Are you referring to the bonus episodes or the original ten?.

Because apart from the look of the characters and a bit of wokeness, the script was very much copy paste from the words in the comic.
Entire episodes were word for word from the comics.

For example, his meeting with death/his sister or the scene at the bar. Even much of the hotel was from the comics. Yes, they modified or removed some parts, but that’s any tv show for you.

I've only watched the first 5, and I actually had my Absolute edition on my lap, which I was flicking through as I was watching.  If you're saying the script followed the comics word for word, I must have different comics.


You must have been watching a different show been reading a different comic.

Take this example as a tiny sample:

And almost copy paste word for word from
The comics.

Watch "24/7", as an example.  Quite different.

Yes, this episode was quite different. But the series as a whole was very good and very close (almost word for word) to the comics

I thought that was Cain and Abel.

Also, you guys got me excited about Season 02 for a moment there!

Re: The Sandman [Drama, Mystery, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Horror]

... can't remember the detectives being in The Sandman (which i REALLY like and watched 3 times smile) or are they?

But there were "Dead Boy Detectives" in Doom Patrol S03E03 13:45++ :-) - liked them, but they changed the cast, hopefully they're still good...
Look forward to test the show - but since its "DC", i don't expect too much (because imo many/most of all DC-Movies and series are crap and ultracrap - and so little are good and better ones) yikes big_smile yikes
