Still in production but scheduled to arrive this year, Neil Gaiman is producing the Sandman for television. Nothing but a teaser at this point, but this might be fun.

And also in production is a second series of Good Omens written by Gaiman using a plot sketched out by Pratchett that didn’t make it into print due to the two being unable to find the time to collaborate on the manuscript. Kind of bittersweet as I think I’d much prefer to have the book version from an alternate dimension where they did get around to writing it.

I laughed out loud three times at Ted Lasso last night. It’s still great. The characters still feel like themselves. I’m glad Danny Rojas finally got a real storyline and screen time. My only concern is that Rebecca and Roy Kent’s storylines feel vestigial, but the showrunners did nothing in the first season to earn anything less than my complete faith that they know what they’re doing.

Anyway, what I really want to talk about is some of the chatter I’ve heard around the show in the lead up to the second season. It feels like they’re treating it like comfort food, look at the nice guy be kind to everyone and make them better and happier. I guess that works as a very surface reading, but it sells the series short, treats Ted like a contemporary Pollyanna. Het’s not. The series admits the world is hard, and Ted is a flawed person with real struggles, but he and everyone else can be more than those things rather than grubbing and wallowing in them. It’s a corrective to the bleakness of Breaking Bad, The Sopranos, The Wire that has ruled the television conversation for decades. Ted is the modern incarnation of Vanity Fair’s Dobbin, the character who is good and kind without being weak, naive or gullible.

I didn't love the first episode but it has earned leeway with me.

Three of my four kids are in front of the TV watching Teletubbies. They’re 24, 18, and 18.

With a prescription.

Boo Bahs came on next, and acid is still illegal.
