Critic reviews for Come to Jesus

I love everything about this show besides the war. I love that it took its sweet time even getting to Easter.

As with Gaiman's book, this is a meandering masterpiece. The thrill is in the journey, the destination very much an afterthought.

Now that the show has finally spent its share of time on stories, it's arrived at a chilling crossroads, ready to bring along with it everything that set its first eight hours apart.

As an episode on its own, the hour was a strong one, filled with a few great moments, stunning visuals (as always), and excellent performances.

"Come to Jesus" ends American Gods first season by arriving at the beginning of the real story in a promising, sometimes puzzling finale that promises greater rewards to come.

Kristin Chenoweth is just a little ray of sunshine, but like the sun, she can warm, and she can burn. She's a gifted comic actress, and she's a Broadway star for a reason. She's magnetic.
