The Sandman, Netflix’s long-awaited adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s comics, starts “in the waking world, which humanity insists on calling the ‘real’ world, as if your dreams have no effect upon the choices you make,” the main character, Morpheus, tells us at the top of the series’ premiere.

Two years after it first debuted on HBO, Industry, the London-based drama set among twenty-somethings at an investment bank, is back—and better than ever. “It was not a great show yet in season one—it had more mood than heart but it was a very, very cool one, with a headlong energy that hit like a drug high,” wrote Vogue’s Taylor Antrim earlier this week.

“Now it’s back, and having devoured the seven episodes made available to critics, I’d like to go long on Industry’s prospects and declare this show prepped for a Succession-style breakout

The next morning, as a result of Morpheus’ imprisonment, a bunch of people don’t wake up from their nightly slumber. One of them is a young London girl named Unity Kincaid; she’ll become important to the story later in the season.

Their showdown is one of the most arresting and horrifying Sandman issues ever published, but I found the TV edition surprisingly grating, hampered perhaps by the attempt to stretch a few dozen pages of comics into an hour of television.

As Midthunder told Allaire: “In period pieces, we are often represented as one-dimensional—either hyper-spiritual or overtly violent with savage stereotypes. I was interested in the opportunity to show Native people in a period piece and what our culture and way of life was actually like.”

A vastly weakened Morpheus returns to his realm where Lucienne happily greets him… then gently tells him that their world and his palace “are not as you left them.”

Burgess tries in vain to bargain with Morpheus, but the otherworldly being won’t speak to him. When we skip 10 years ahead, Burgess has wealth, youth and prosperity thanks to Morpheus’ accessories. He eventually impregnates a young woman named Ethel, then demands that she have an abortion. So she runs away… and takes Morpheus’ ruby with her. We later see that she has a son named Johnny, who’ll also figure into the story in a later episode.
