It is another opportunity for American Gods to teach a history and humanities class under the guise of good old fashioned entertainment.

Not that I'd be surprised if fans of the show look back on "Head Full of Snow," its third episode, as the one where the series came into its own, a la "College" from The Sopranos Season One.

What this relatively languid pacing affords American Gods becomes crystal clear in episode 3, which is founded on a few beautifully constructed character scenes driven by superb performances and the best dialogue you'll hear anywhere on TV right now.
