Thank you for all the birthday messages across all three of my accounts. Sorry I haven't replied to each of you individually, but I figured a mass thank you was better than no response at all. I really do appricate the messages, though.
I've been waiting years and years for a real adaptation of Neil Gaiman's The Sandman to be made. And I also dreaded it because the graphic novel series has always seemed like it would be impossible to bring to the screen. At least, to be done well. But then Netflix announced that they were going to give it a go, and better yet, that they were bringing on Neil to work with them to bring his story to life. And, I have to say, I'm in love with the show. Granted, it's not a perfect adaptation, they've made changes, of course, but nothing that takes away from story as a whole. Gwendoline Christie makes a wonderful Lucifer and Tom Sturridge is a near perfect Dream.
I really enjoyed it. I binged the entire series today. I thought it had a sort of American Gods feeling about it. and yes omg She played an amazing Lucifer.
It's leagues better than American Gods. That Starz adaptation of my all-time favorite novel broke my heart. The Sandman, though, it's wonderful, truly wonderful. I need more, and I need it now.
Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
I can't believe it's already August. This year has really flown by. Lucas starts school on Wednesday, I'll be turning 35 on the 10th... Crazy.
