Critic Consensus: "The Bone Orchard" represents a strong opening salvo for American Gods, thanks in part to the strong dramatic interplay between Ian McShane and Ricky Whittle.

Critic reviews for The Bone Orchard
American Gods is liable to be the best urban fantasy series since, well, Buffy the Vampire Slayer
To say that American Gods hit the ground running is to understate things to the point of meaninglessness. It hit the ground, the sea, the sky and the universe running - at top speed.
American Gods sets up a world in this first episode that is fascinating and confounding in the best possible way, but also in ways that are infuriating and obtuse.
American Gods manages to feel real and makes fantasy almost relatable...before slapping you across the face with a big dose of man-eating goddesses and angry hammer wielding eastern European boogeymen.
