Television: American Gods

Supposed to be the next big show. Luckily has Ian McShane. It's on Starz Sunday nights at 9. Based on a novel that's been around since 2001. The pilot was ok and very fucking weird since we have no idea what's going on. The sex scene is......interesting. The gods are dicks man.

Just got to seeing if anyone had brought up this show here yet... I watched the first episode since I heard about the buzz. And got hooked!

I read Good Omens a loooong time ago and (although it's an entirely different story) it's amazing how well they've captured the style Neil Gaiman has.

Really digging the feel of this show, even if I'm only about 60% sure of WTF is going on. But so, that's good too.

It's on STARZ, they won't stick with it. No reason to watch. Don't think they've ever let a series go beyond two yrs.

I listened to the unabridged 10th anniversary edition and loved it. Neil Gaiman continued to amaze me throughout the book with his story telling!

I really like the series, even though it doesn't totally follow the book. The interaction between Laura and Mad Sweeney is hilarious. I was very curious to see how they choreographed Bilquis' "appetite" and they did it very well

They did a great job casting the main characters IMO. Pablo Shreiber is just outstanding as Mad Sweeney

Impressive supporting cast as well: Cloris Leachman, Kristin Chenoweth, Corbin Bernson, Peter Stormare, Gillian Anderson...

And if you haven't read the book, the series probably will confuse you. Looking forward to season 2 !!

I am very disappointed so far. Maybe the next season will be better. I thoroughly enjoyed the book
