Tom Sturridge as the title character in Netflix’s ‘The Sandman.’

This week’s Nose is sittin’ here, moping, pigeon feeding.

It’s the generational divide that’s been tearing the nation asunder for as long as we can remember: Should you use a top sheet or not? [Ed. note: You obviously should not. What is this, the 19th century?]

And: The Sandman is a Netflix series adaptation of the DC/Vertigo comic book written by Neil Gaiman. Ten episodes dropped on August 5 and racked up 127.5 million hours of viewing in their first week of release, making The Sandman the most-watched show on Netflix. A surprise 11th episode was released early this morning.

Some other stuff that happened this week, give or take:


  • Helder Mira: Multimedia producer at Trinity College and co-host of the So Pretentious podcast
  • Cat Pastor: Assistant radio operations manager at Connecticut Public
  • Tracy Wu Fastenberg: Development officer at Connecticut Children’s
  • Bill Yousman: Professor of Media Studies at Sacred Heart University
