There's a lot here - lots of characters to keep up with, symbolism, metaphors, satire. The humor is usually of the darker variety. The acting excellent. It's easy to get lost and even a bit confused at the intricate plots and subplots but you could just turn the sound off at times and enjoy the often psychedelic visuals. The FX are done very well, whether it be burning talking heads or white bulls with fire coming out of their eyes. Carousels that spin and morph into dazzling lights that transport to another dimension. Entertaining, to say the least!
This is an excellent series from Bryan Fuller, the executive producer of the shows Hannibal and Pushing Daisies. The writing, acting and directing are all top-notch. The music is fantastic. The blurays in this set look great. I am very happy with my purchase!
Season 2 is not quite the same as Season 1 under the direction of Bryan Fuller and Michael Green, but it's still an engaging take on one of Gaiman's most significant and enduring works, well worth the time spent.
