American Gods Episode 7

I cannot stop smiling about this week’s episode. It was all about Mad Sweeney, who’s my favorite, and his travels with two very strong women, played by the same actress. Woven through the modern day story is the story of how Mad Sweeney came to America, narrated by the one and only Mr. Ibis, who – as Mr. Jacquel remarks in the beginning of the episode – has a story to tell.

American Gods Episode 6

This episode is going to be extremely difficult to summarize. This episode had a ton of stuff in it and I need to figure out how to unpack it all. I’m going to try to here but I gotta say, this episode is best watched and heard rather than summarized. The writing is more superb than ever.

American Gods Episode 1

My favorite book ever, American Gods by Neil Gaiman, has just aired as a brand new television series on Starz. It’s made by Bryan Fuller (best known for the show Hannibal) and Michael Green, and Gaiman himself is an executive producer. It stars Ricky Whittle, Ian McShane, Emily Browning, and a whole lot of other amazing actors. And it is a thing to be worshiped.
