Description

When Shadow Moon is released from prison, he meets the mysterious Mr. Wednesday and a storm begins to brew. Little does Shadow know, this storm will change the course of his entire life. Left adrift by the recent, tragic death of his wife, and suddenly hired as Mr. Wednesday's bodyguard, Shadow finds himself in the center of a world that he struggles to understand. It's a hidden world where magic is real, where the Old Gods fear both irrelevance and the growing power of the New Gods. Mr. Wednesday seeks to build a coalition of Old Gods to defend their existence in this new America, and reclaim some of the influence that they've lost. As Shadow travels across the country with Mr. Wednesday, he struggles to accept this new reality, and his place in it.

  • Too Dark for Me

    Just a little too much darkness for my taste. Didn't make it through episode 1.

    There's not an actual story here. Some great actors, sure, beautifully shot, yes, but there's not really an actual story. Maybe the book is amazing, but Neil Gaiman wrote it. He didn't write this show. This show lack any structure beyond beginning and ending.

    My brother was really excited about this show and encouraged me to watch it. I already knew some of the premiss as I am a Neil Gaiman fan. But despite how much I like Neil, and how much I love my brother’s preference for things… I thought this show sucked. The cast is amazing but I can not get on board with this and I’m a lover of sci-fi and fantasy. One of the things that really irritated me is the director forcing his preachy political statement by making you watch an incredibly long homosexual scene that seemed out of place… and then needed the director after the episode to tell you WHY you had to watch it. To me that isn’t good story telling, its just force feeding politics as opposed to keeping good story telling the focal point. Even with that said, I thought the episodes dragged on and all the tension building up around things feel so contrived.
  • An Acquired Taste!

    Didn’t enjoy it at all! Couldn’t sit through the first couple of episodes.
  • Excellent so far.

    I've just watched the first episode and I thought it to be intriguing. It was never boring from the beginning to the end of the episode. The acting is superb, the dialogue is clever and well written and well delivered by the actors. The character development began from the moment the show started. I have watched some shows where even after a few episodes, I could still care less about the characters and their lives. Not the case with the show. I'm looking forward to future episode of American Gods.
  • I would keep watching but...

    I just can't get past the sound track. I mean you a just bombarded with loud noise all through the show. None stop, which makes it very hard to watch. It reminds me of Sin City with the look and feel of the show. I didn't like Sin City. The actors did a good job. But I think I will wait for it on Netflix. The sound trick is just too much!!! BAD SOUND
  • Trying way too hard...

    A bunch of really great actors in a show that tries waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too hard to try to be trendy, symbolic, shocking and artsy. Total overkill, even the music was too much. Interesting to watch, but, not good enough to interest me in a caring about a second season.
  • Completely Unique

    There is not another show like American Gods on televsion. It doesn't spell everything out for you and can be frustrating in the beginning, but the visual beauty and enigmatic cast will keep you hooked. For those of you that haven't read the book, you might be confused, maybe read a synopsis first. It's a favorite book of mine and I've convinced friends to watch it who never heard of it that ended up being obsessed. For fans of the book, they writers have definitely expanded on the sotry and changed certain parts, but the overall feeling is captured perfectly.

    I am a major fan boy of the book and knew that any show would be an adaptation. Many episodes were some of the most beautiful things I'd ever seen. The stories were alive and powerful. The visuals were always striking. Others felt false, corpse imitations of their more beautiful counterparts. Some social commentary fits perfectly, others are hamfisted. Mad Sweeney shone brightly. Laura is very unlikeable, and even admits to it. Wednesday feels wasted. All that being said. It is good. I think though, like the point the book makes about America, the show doesn't know what it wants to be.
