Netflix users make great statements about one of the episodes of The Sandman.
Neil Gaiman’s adaptation was added to the streaming service earlier this month and has received rave reviews from longtime fans of the source material, which was first released in the 1980s.
However, there is one very special part that the majority of fans seem to consider the highlight of the series: episode six.
The episode, titled “The Sound of Her Wings,” follows Morpheus (Tom Sturridge) following his big sister Death (Kirby Howell-Baptiste) as she herds souls into the afterlife.
It is the show with the highest ratings on IMDb and the one that gets the most acclaim from audiences based on reactions on Twitter. In fact, many are hailing The Sound of Her Wings as one of the best episodes of any Netflix series to date.
Jeremy Thomas, Editor at @411mania, wrote: “Episode six of #TheSandman is deservedly one of the best episodes of any TV show I’ve seen in years. I’m not kidding… in YEARS.”
@GreySparx added, “I loved episode six more than anything I’ve seen in a long time, the philosophical themes of death, time and immortality play out in such a clear, positive way. Really makes you think.
@hfreed76 said it was “perhaps the BEST media episode I’ve ever seen”, while countless others called the performance “sublime”, with some calling it a “masterpiece”.
Before the series started, Gaiman had to step in to warn “hostile” fans of the source material not to “protect” the show from those they had never read.
The Sandman is now available to stream on Netflix.
