Title: The Sandman.

Watched the trailer for the upcoming series. Any Neil Gaiman fans looking forward/dreading this?

I've only seen the first trailer; it seems to follow the graphic novel pretty closely.
I'm anxious to see how it looks.

I've been burned so often in recent years by shows I looked forward to that I may not even check this out at all. I have the source material which is near-perfection. The Sandman series is simply storytelling for its own sake, no agenda, no heavy-handed attempt at shoving out lessons, just a great, great work of literature and visual art that has few equals. So....in answer, I am not dreading it or anticipating it, just ignoring it. (But all that said, I would love to love it if it did turn out to be good.)

I somehow don't think you will be able to resist watching . . .

I heard they'd released a trailer with footage of Lucifer, but not been able to find it. The other trailer that I have seen looked good and Neil Gaiman does seem to be involved in the making of the show.

The latest teaser cemented my worst fears about what's been done to the greatest graphic novel series of all time. Not going to watch it, and I have to add I have lost faith in the ability of the entertainment industry to render quality, agenda-free storytelling these days.

We live in the age of quantity. We live in the age of moralizing. We live in shallow times.
