Netflix’s The Sandman isn’t without its flaws, but it is surprisingly entertaining, so much so that it will keep you up at night watching it. Check out the details in my parents guide review.
Netflix’s The Sandman drops on the streaming service today, August 5th. The series is adapted from Neil Gaiman’s comic book series of the same name, which ran from its first issue in 1989 and produced 75 issues, multiple spinoffs, and was a cult hit with the Gen-X comic book lovers of the time. It seemed that the comic series was unadaptable, having many interested parties wanting to bring the story to screen, yet a script worthy of the comic has never made it to life. That is until now. Netflix has seemed to do the impossible, and not only make this series, but also deliver a worthy live-adaptation of it. Check out the details in my parents guide review.
