The reviews looks good and so far I'm loving it. Went into not expecting much but so far I'm pleasantly surprised.
Completely forgot that it was coming out on the 5th, just happened to open netflix and see it.


Looks like shit. Watched trailer. Passed.

Is it just me or does Charles Dance seems to have an affinity for fantasy genre stuff?

GoT, Your Highness, Underworld and now this show. It's almost like studios like the idea of using his stature to give a grounded legitimacy to an otherwise supernatural world.

Why did I get suspended for a fictional movie idea? It was in no way an attack on anyone, and making the assumption that it was is a personal attack on one of your users, and a gross abuse of your authority as a site moderator.

Logs should be checked and the suspending moderator should be immediately stripped of their tag. I’d also like a formal apology for this injustice.

Unless of course the rule is that we’re not allowed to discuss movies in the movie forum. If that’s the case, then I’d appreciate confirmation of this.

E: or if it’s the subject matter, I would think somewhere in the rules that there should be a list of films that we’re unable to discuss. You know….

Dead Poets Society
Girl Interrupted
The Virgin Suicides
Seven Pounds
Etc…..

Your pitch was a brilliant idea of what a poor unfortunate soul would have to endure if he/she was a meth baby!

SPOILER POST

Only three episodes deep and it seems to be a good show, but there was one thing that I think is creeping into more movie and more shows these days and its lack of consequences / meaningful decisions.


The decision to kill Gregory was great it was impactful and held weight and now you hope he does something meaningful with that sacrifice. Fast-forward 5 minutes later and oh here's an egg with another one, cant have the audience sad! Its stuff like that where writers cop out. Its a very minor thing in this show but I find its happening all the time now. It makes decisions feel weightless. Its like the fake death trope in so many fantasy novels. It makes all future deaths meaningless at the time you read them.

I found out sandman is a dc comic


It Connects to lucifer and Constantine too , also from dc
Some people are saying this is the best show ever

But its lost its #1 spot on Netflix already,
So it's not for every1

I like it, but I can't say I loved it,

I pushed through the first episode because of what I read in this thread, but gave up shortly into episode 2. Just feels like the show was made to target teens.
