PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though I’m a fan of some Gaiman works, I’m not a subscriber to the service and hence will not be watching it so with that in mind I will not offer anything else up. One has to hope that after some exclusivity that some of these other shows make their way to the Netflix or Hulu services but who knows about that. Will you be binging this series if you are an Amazon Prime subscriber? Chime in down below. See you next time.
