This is going to be good. Really can’t wait!

I'm on the fence. I don't feel like American Gods or Good Omens have been all that great. I guess we'll have to see. It's a story about stories and that would seem to lend itself well to adaptation.

Why would they adapt for Netflix when DC has a streaming service?

Because $$$$. Netflix throws stupid cash around looking for the next GOT. DC’s service is very likely operating at a loss.

I don't think this will work on the screen and I really don't think Netflix is the right choice to produce it.  I'd describe their best shows as superficial - competently produced and well acted, but lacking the depth of HBO's best. Their worst shows are just unwatchable.

Hopefully they prove me wrong.

Hard to imagine any show or movie being anywhere near the quality of the comic. They would need some very avant garde / brilliant directors and I just don't see that happening. Having just reread the series recently, it reaffirmed my love for the medium. Many think of comics as nothing more than story boards but that's hardly the case.

This is probably more suitable for the TV/Movie subforum.
