Watching #TheSandman for my upcoming review, which will be published later. But I will say this now: This is pure creativity, pure magic and myth. Tom Sturridge looks and acts as if born to the role of Morpheus. @Netflix_Sandman @neilhimself pic.twitter.com/e9aI9jr0sd

#TheSandman early review:
Neil Gaiman with his brilliant team and cast have made a beautiful and intricately woven visual adaptation of The Sandman graphic novel and my only wish is that @netflix would make it a weekly episode run to increase the buzz for this amazing show. pic.twitter.com/cRFpOX9JJd
