What to Watch podcast: Meet the Lord of Dreams on the series debut of The Sandman

·3 min read

The long-awaited adaptation of Neil Gaiman's The Sandman comic book series debut on Netflix, starring Tom Sturridge, Gwendoline Christie, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, Patton Oswalt, and more. And a real hot girl stops by the Pynk on the latest episode of P-Valley.

Kevin Bacon stars in the horror-thriller They/Them, about a summer camp that promises fun and adventure but also administers conversation therapy to LGBTQ+ campers — oh, and there's a killer loose on the campgrounds. Taron Egerton and Paul Walter Hauser go head to head in the finale of the limited series Black Bird, about presumed real-life serial killer Larry Hall. The comedy The Outlaws, about a group of seven strangers who've committed small crimes assembled for community service, returns for its second season — and the group has to save themselves after helping Ben escape murder charges in season 1.

The new trailer for the final season of The Good Fight finds Diane Lockhart in despair — and delivering our Sound Bite of the Week. Plus more entertainment headlines — including HBO Max and Discovery+ streaming services merging in summer 2023, Lady Gaga confirming her role in the Joker sequel, details about an upcoming Outlander prequel series, James Franco's new role, and The View announces two new cohosts — and trivia.
