Critic Consensus: More deliberately paced than previous installments, "Head Full of Snow" nevertheless continues American Gods' stunning visual sensibility and sharp character development.

Critic reviews for Head Full of Snow
With this episode, I feel like we're FINALLY getting through the setup of the show and moving along briskly.
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.
Sunday night's episode of American Gods is my favorite so far in the fledgling series from Starz.
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.
