The Sandman

Every day, billions of people around the world are asleep. When they’re not dreaming, they leave a small but vital part of themselves in their dreams. The Sandman is a coming-of-age story about Morpheus, a personification of dreams who watches over the world and its inhabitants by separating reality from the dream and vice versa. The show stars Joseph Gordon Levitt as Morpheus, with his sister’s husband (Patrick Wilson) as Dream .

What is the plot of the story ?

The show is an adaptation of the horror genre and revolves around a man named Daniel “Dream” Sands, who takes over the role of Dream in the wake of the previous Dream (RUSSELL CROWE) passing away. In his very first scene, Sands is shown sitting in a room with a man who looks exactly like him; it turns out that this “other Daniel,” or simply “The Sandman,” is actually an older version of himself. The sands have completely forgotten about The Sandman since he was still just a child, and so he takes it upon himself to do what his predecessor would have done: to protect the dreams that people around him are having.

Who is in the cast ? What role did each character portray ?

The cast include Tom Sturridge , Jenna Coleman , and Georgina Haig in their roles as Daniel “Dream” Sands, Lyta “Wondy” Forrest, and Mervyn Forrest. Other than them, there are a lot of stars who are featured in the series. Some of them include David Boreanaz , Ron Perlman , Selma Blair , Benedict Cumberbatch , Anna Friel , Amanda Palmer , Adam Horowitz , Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa , etc.

What are the difficulties they face in the series ?

There are a lot of difficulties the main characters face in the series. The main problems they face are the loss of their father (in the first episode), actual loss of their mother’s life when their father died in their childhood, and most importantly, not knowing who their real father is. They also go through a lot of difficulties trying to balance being dreamkeepers and making themselves as good as possible within that world, where most people despise them for being poor dreamkeepers and horrible people. In addition to this, Daniel was tormented by his sister’s husband (Patrick Wilson) being arrested for fraud and his former best friend (Tate Ellington) becoming one of the enforcers of Dream.

Who is the antagonist ? What are its motives ?

The antagonist of the series is Mervyn Forrest who, at one point, made a deal with Dream that if he helped him imprison Daniel, he would let him live. However, this was just a ploy by Mervyn as he wanted to have access to the seals in order to gain power for himself and take over. The antagonist’s motives are shaping the world however they see fit, torturing everyone and making them suffer in their nightmares.

What are the epic scenes ?

There are many epic scenes in this series. One of the most memorable scenes is Daniel walking into the room where his father is resting and offering him something he has wanted for a long time: freedom. This makes his dad quote “It’s so much easier to find the light when you are surrounded by darkness.” The other epic scene is when The Sandman takes over and tries to stop Mervyn from hurting Alvin, which ends up failing. However, after that, every dreamkeeper in Morpheus’s employ carries on together to try and stop Mervyn.

Would you recommend watching this ?

Yes, I would recommend watching this series to anyone who has a strong interest in the horror genre and appreciates well-written characters. Thanks for reading !
