A novel-based fantasy drama following a brewing war between old and new Gods.


Ex-con and widower Shadow Moon is fresh out of prison and about to have his life turned upside down. He soon meets a charismatic con man named Mr. Wednesday, who gives him a job as a bodyguard.

Mr. Wednesday, though, is actually an incarnation of the God Odin, who is looking to confront the new Gods, who have been growing stronger.

Together, Mr. Wednesday and Shadow Moon begin a journey across America in an attempt to build an army of Old Gods that will battle for power against the New Gods.

American Gods reminds me of Twin Peaks. I love programs like this. They challenge you. This is one of those shows that requires you to watch, listen and pay attention. A great cast, excellent directing, wonderful cinematography, special effects and sets make this a show that is worth watching. Bravo Starz!

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.

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.
