Gaiman told Empire in a new interview, “If you didn’t like an episode of Game of Thrones, you probably won’t like any other episode of Game of Thrones. With Sandman, it’s all about surprising you. It’s all about reinventing itself. It’s all about taking you on a journey you’ve not been on before.”

“You watch Episode 1 and think, ‘Oh, I get this thing: it’s like Downton Abbey, but with magic,'” said Gaiman. “Then you’ll be wondering, ‘What the hell is this?’ by Episode 2, when you’re meeting Gregory the Gargoyle in The Dreaming. Episode 5 is about as dark and traumatic as anything is ever gonna get, then you’ve got Episode 6, which is probably the most feel-good of all the episodes.”
