People think Neil acquiesced to 'wokeness' in the casting, but really his works have pushed society towards greater acceptance of diversity, not the other way around.
This is true. No creative choice was out of malice, or "trend". Thats an insult on his capabilities to think.
Even though I am uncomfortable with sex in general I understood its narrative necessity in the episodes. Others should learn to do the same.
I dare you to tweet that to Neil. Or you can read his tweets to those who have already done it…
@Tanith Broom is that in response to my comment? Perhaps you misread it.
We have always been a divergent species; just like every other species. It's the culture that we have communally adopted to support the whole that is wasting a lot of talent and creatively dampening the human experience. It's Monster's Inc. for real.
I could listen to Neil talk about paint drying and be totally enthralled with the conversation. Loved it!
I’ve been waiting decades for a Sandman adaptation worthy of the original source material, and this series is PERFECTION!
Also, Neil if you somehow read this, I love your 'grumpy' comments defending your cast and creation. I'm always impressed at how you can call out the bullshit while avoiding unkindness.
I hope they release Tom Sturridge and the rest of the cast's audition tape.
Right? I think that would be so interesting. I also want to see bloopers and stuff of the cast just hanging out and being friendly but in their costume it would be so cute 😭
One of my favourite storytellers. It’s fun to see a full interview like this with Josh!
Death spin-off needs to happen though! Those comics deserve their stories with Kirby at helm for sure!
I wish Josh would interview Tom Sturridge one day. It would be fun to complete the Brit pack
4:58 "I sort of think of those millions and millions of people as being the yoghurt starter, to make an unfortunate analogy, who got to sort of bring us out into the world." --- Neil Gaiman
(It's an apt analogy because yoghurt starters spread culture.)
I somehow missed that specific phrase… which is a pure delight. Every time I re-experience one of his stories, I gain so much new appreciation for the delightedly assembled experience. Oooh, look at the loving stitching holding that pocket together!
He has the perfect speech pace and voice to listen to.
12:39 ..... Completely agree with his take on powerful characters, the powers are not the problem.... 🤨😅.....
Ok a Gaiman/Del Torro Dr Strange would have been incredible
I’m now devastated this didn’t happen
My question/votive would be will there be some sort of final season/tv movie to adapt the final two seasons of Neil’s five season American Gods plan or with the goodwill building at Amazon with Good Omens (season 2/new material 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉) & now another season of Sandman which if we maintain & I think the audience will we’ll get at least all of the man sandman run if not more in the universe-destiny willing
The bit at 16:00 is great because my husband got me to read Sandman when we started dating.
I wanna see bloopers so bad
Man... Secret rooms within rooms that I know are a big feature in my dreams.
16:22 Neil & The Sandman being an STD 😂

Neil Gaiman created his storied against a backdrop of a strong society. He was standing up against bullies. That society is now catastrophically failing. Yet Neil Gaiman goes even further in his commendation. He is now the bully.
