If you don't get it, don't worry. Having just finished the audiobook about a month before the show premiered, I can say that this is a very strong adaptation and yet minor changes have been made to feel more natural. New scenes and characters have been added in that were in the original book and they add more complexity in depth to the overall mythos of the series The key to this show is subtlety. Trust me, as the sugar was on the plot will become more pronounced in obvious and there are some major plot twists set up for the four future. I really hope the show runs through the entire book and gives us a complete feeling for this universe, maybe even spin off to adapt its partner book, Anansi Boys.

they're doing a good job introducing the characters, but for those who haven't read the book, I'm sure it's very confusing. and instead of using Gaiman's great vocabulary, they've turned it into a monosyllabic 6th grade vocabulary.

Great show, love how they use the mini
stories to introduce each of the characters.
Interesting visuals, stories, characters and can't
wait to see where this goes.

Best show on tv lately hands down, except maybe less great than GOT

Tried to watch this.. first one was okay albeit a bit confusing and hard to follow... second episode lost me in the first 2 minutes with a 'down trodden black man' tirade being made by a modern day black man to a shipload of black men on a slave ship.It will probably get renewed and be on for several seasons but I won't be watching.
