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.”

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.
