One of the joys of watching Neil Gaiman's mythology-inspired Americana fantasy adapted for TV is that there are virtually no limits to the settings and storylines.

It did what good art does. It tells you something about itself while also telling you something about you.

Head Full of Snow is the strongest entry thus far and promises potential that won't come without a reasonable amount of frustration for a show such as this.

One of the things I like about American Gods so far is how it's telling stories within stories. The gods' histories of themselves, the "Somewhere in America" vignettes.

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