I'm halfway through it... Decent enough. But clucking bell! It's THE most woke thing I've ever seen. They've literally race and gender-swapped everyone! They obviously don't like us crackers. lol

In all honesty, I usually don't mind a bit of it where appropriate, but when it's soooo freakin' blatant it really looks pathetic. And when you have well-established cannon it just seems like a bit of a kick in the teeth for the comic fans.

So Fluck off Neil Gaiman and your crew of pandering gimps at NF.

Worth a watch tho'.

Damn fucking auto-correct.

Well, Gaiman apparently wanted it this way.

The whole racebending Death part is really silly for multiple reasons. At one point the show establishes that the Endless each look different depending on who looks at them, so Death could’ve been played by both a white actress and a black actress in different shots. Obviously that’s virtue signaling. Also, she only appears for a short period of time.

Around 3/4 of the characters who show any attraction are gay for no reason other than virtue signaling. Most don’t appear for more than one episode. The only recurring gay characters are a drag queen and a villain.

Desire’s casting was actually pretty on point, because the actor is a total creep in real life so totally sold desire being a creep.

Unfortunately, the show overall just wasn’t very strong because the storytelling is so outdated. Sometimes the dialogue is just cringy or unnatural.

Yeah, it wouldn't surprise me that Neil was behind those decisions and egged on by Shit Flix. It feels incredibly weird watching it because every side character or minor bit part is played by POC. It feels very forced in my opinion. But Neil the trickle of piss that he is didn't have the balls to make Sandman himself black. Why not? I mean if you're ripping the shit out of your creation, why not go all out so you can level up that virtue signaling?

And as you said (virtually) everyone is gay or bi. Not because they were originally but just because 'you can'. Again it feels very odd indeed.

Again, I don't mind chopping and changing some stuf. But Sandman is so horribly blatant about it - it just feels like Neil and his cohort of gimps are really trying to sell you the purest woke-scold shit in a bottle imaginable.

Definitely worth seeing it for the visuals... I think Desire is coming in the 6th episode which I'll watch tonight.

Christ... I pray he never remakes 'Neverwhere'.
