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.

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.

The parallels between characters continue, quietly connecting these sometimes seemingly disconnected tales and hinting at what might be ahead... or underneath.

American Gods is closing out its phenomenal first season as only American Gods can -- by starting with a massive, ancient orgy and ending with a pastel Jesus party-turned-declaration of war.

As a finale, all this felt a bit contrived. It was a case of second season syndrome: a TV show creator having to strike a balance between wrapping up a storyline and teeing up its continuation, in the end doing neither.

As an hour of visual splendour, it was top-notch as always, thanks to Fuller's sense of crafting exquisite TV. But as season arcs go, the episode didn't deliver enough on that front.

It was fun - more fun than we had a right to expect, to be honest.

American Gods has something very special with [Emily Browning] in such a prominent role.

Jun 14, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Season one of American Gods ends by ramping up the expected conflict between old-school celestials and latter-day deities, as well as sketching out factions and agendas that may have surprised viewers who read the book.

American Gods concluded it's first season with a bang.

I'd pray that the show gets better by then, but as an American who's never had to struggle or give thanks for anything, my prayers will surely fall on deaf ears.

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.
