American Gods (Neil Gaiman)



The series, set to debut on Starz in 2017, follows a clash of titans between the old gods — a group of immigrant, cultural deities who were brought to America from across the world but whose believers are dying out and, with that, their power — and the new gods, reflective of our society’s obsession with money, celebrity, media, and technology.

Gaiman spoke to the casting process of bringing his book characters to human (well, sort of) life. “I was very involved. I still am. And it’s really been interesting, finding our Shadow was a process that lasted several months, and we put poor Ricky through the ringer. I hate to think how many audition tapes he did for us.” (“I know,” said Whittle. “I did 16.”) “With Ian, I think it was as simple as getting a phone call from Bryan saying, ‘What about Ian McShane?’ and we went, ‘Oh my God, yes.’ We then made him do 16 audition tapes.”

American Gods is one of my favorite books. As such, I've been caustically optimistic. But this trailer exceeded all my expectations! It looks great.

Looking forward to it. Glad they made it a series and didn't do something dumb and try to make it a film.

Enjoyed it enough to watch next week's ep, despite it seeming a bit scattered and the wife's friend being a terrible actress in the graveyard scene. Intro Viking scene was great/funny.

The premise is definitely the selling point: Old gods vs new gods. Might just have to read the book if the next ep or two turn out to be great.

I thought the first episode was good. Having read the book I thought some parts might not translate to tv very well, but I was pleasantly surprised.

Orlando Jones killed it in his scene. Might be the best role I've ever seen him play.

i'm very impressed by and enthralled with this show; it's visually mesmerizing and thematically daring.


I can't recall ever seeing passionate gay sex featuring brown people on television.

my only complaint so far is the disjointed nature of the storytelling. I haven't been bored by anything, but the (seemingly) unrelated side-stories are annoying... annoying, because I'd like to see more of those characters, not just 5 minute vignettes.

her as Ziggy Stardust was even better. Lucille Ball was great as well.

Gillian is really loving this role. She's killing it.

Finale was insane. Well the whole season really, but to see the true scope of the Gods power when they're sufficiently worshiped/motivated is crazy.

Was that the finale? Will have to change my opinion of the series if that was the case, because as good as the episode was it was in no way a fitting finale.
