I hope each season has bonus self-contained episodes, the two stories at the end were my favourite part.

I'm hoping that next season they release Thermidor, August, and Three Septembers and a January as bonus epiosdes all on their respective months during the summer.

The motivation I needed to finish season one.

I am enjoying season 1, except for one thing: the quiet parts are way too quiet and the loud parts are way too loud. I have to turn the volume up to hear the dialogue, but then when things start happening, I have to turn the volume back down so it doesn't kill my eardrums. I've started watching it with subtitles.

Also, get off my dang lawn.

As someone who never read the comics, I thought the first season wasn't bad but it was very bipolar: damn good when focused on Sandman and his family, and pretty crap when focused on the antagonist or the tiresome mortals.

Brother, you ain't seen nothing yet.

Also does this mean we will FINALLY get that Death:The High Cost of Living movie that's been in development hell for the last 20 years?

I have this problem with most things I watch. Are you watching with a soundbar? If so, turn off surround sound and put it back to stereo. The mix will be much more even.

Three Septembers and a January is my favorite issue of the series. Frankly, I can't believe nobody made a movie about Emperor Norton. It's such an incredible story. (The first time I read the comic, I had no idea he was a real person until the final panels.)

I just finished the first season yesterday. It shows a ton of potential, but needs improvement. But this may be a matter of the source material. I always found the first two collections (Preludes and Nocturnes, A Doll's House) the weakest of the series, so the show can only get better from here.

Pacing was another issue. Nearly each episode felt 15 minutes longer than it really was. The show was at its best when it told stories at a faster pace, like how it combined The Sound of Her Wings and Men of Good Fortune into a single episode, or told A Dream of a Thousand Cats in a crisp 20 minutes (with gorgeous animation no less).

The casting, by the way, is excellent. Sure, Kirby Howell-Baptiste isn't the perky goth girl from the comics, but she really understood the duality of the character's lightness and gravity. I'll also be sad to see Boyd Holbrook go. You could tell he had a blast playing The Corinthian.

It's been some time since I read the comic, but I seem to remember the last one being a bunch of, "The Adventures of Corinthian and Crow."

Can't wait to see how they pull off Joshua Norton. He's one of my favorite characters of weird Americana in general.

*spoiler adjacent*

When she delivered the line to the baby, that is when I fully bought into her as Death. It was absolutely perfect.
My only real gripes before that were her makeup and British accent but I'll deal. I just don't understand how her character would have a British accent since she's the oldest but whatever, I'll deal because the actor is on freaking point.

I apologize for my "Awktually" but Destiny is the oldest.

But Death existed from the moment of creation. As soon as something existed she was there

I could totally be forgetting something though so What volume does it say Destiny is the oldest?
I have most of them downstairs.

If I reefer correctly it was the prelude issue to A Season of Mists where they had the family meeting.

Death was created with the first living thing in the universe, but most likely the universe existed for millions or maybe billions of years before life was possible (unless there are types of life we don't know about that are possible in a universe with a lot ot radiation and low concentrations of elements heavier than helium.

Here we go.

Although now that I think about it Death probably isn't that much younger because in Sandman lore stars live, die, dream, and go mad, so Death would deal with them as a form of life.

Correct.  There's a story about how Dream and Desire became adversaries where all the stars in the universe gathered with the Endless before they woke up their planets.  Death made a brief appearance stating that she wouldn't stay long but that she would see they all again one day.  Destruction, OTOH, was almost revered because his realm fueled the stars and allowed them to create their systems.
