    I hope this gets a shitload of viewers because it looks like something that costs so much that Netflix will cancel it with the quickness if it doesn't.

    I've watched five episodes so far. This is definitely one of the best things Netflix has done.

    It's amazing what happens when you take great source material and actually adapt it properly. So glad they had Gaiman consult.

    Enjoyed first episode. Love an hour episode instead of these 34 minute junkers from Disney that are 26 minutes after credits.

    Is Dream this dull/emotionless in the books? Every other character is great and he’s just awful to me.

    It's pretty accurate to the comics.

    I just started episode 3
    So are they making Johanna like John’s cousin or is she just the Constantine in this realm? Not sure if it’s explained but it’s not that big of a deal just curious. I know she’s show exclusive and the original appears later in the comics. I figured they wouldn’t be able to use his character for a Netflix series.

    Basically a replacement from what Gaiman has said.

    Watched the main trailer for this one last night and tbh the CGI looked very cheap and corny. And I'm not normally one to pick at that but the trailer looked cheap, makeup/wardrobes looked cheap.... is the show good? Does the final product come off as cheap looking?

    It’s really good. The graphics and everything look good to me but the acting and everything is great. Tons of good actors in it.

    I personally thought the CGI was fine. Wasn't the best I've ever seen on tv but far from the worst. Especially given how behind all the visual effects studios are.

    As for the show itself I loved it. But I'm also a fan of the comics so not sure if that makes more bias or not.

    She was definitely one of the best parts of the show.

    Lot of people are asking for a spin-off show for her Constantine. I hope it happens.

    The trailer makes it look like shit, almost didn’t watch after seeing it. Thankfully the show comes off way better.

    Loving it as a fan of he audiobooks but my wife (who tbc also is enjoying it) opined that every time Dream does his pouty face it looks like he’s slurping spaghetti and has started shouting “SPAGHETTI!!” every time he does it.

    That would be my one complaint is he's a little bit emo where in the comic I felt he was more menacing I guess is the right word. I don't know. But that character was always going to be nearly impossible to completely pull off.

    they rejected his premise that 100% honesty made the world better and he decided to punish them for it.

    I thought the performances by Rose and Luta were very stilted in places, almost like they were reading of cue cards. Other than that I really liked it. Hoping for a season two.

    It’s got an 87 on RT. That’s usually where comic fans go to trash adaptations. I googled it and they’re writing season 2 but no confirmation of renewal yet.
