American Gods: Season 1 Reviews

  • Mar 28, 2020

    Finished Season 1 of "American Gods" after watching over a period of about three weeks. So, that is telling in itself - interesting enough for me to watch all 8 episodes, but not that compelling to binge watch over a few days or a weekend. The series' biggest drawback was going for style over substance. While it had great sets, visuals and scenes, the underlying story - which unfolds much too slow - was just ok. Also, the characters were more caricatures than people you really cared about. A decent show, but not so good that I can't state whether I'll watch Season 2.

    Sigh. Too dark. Not too dark as in content but too dark as in GoT final episode. Also, how boring it is to watch Hollywood elites preach their woke bs to the little people? Look, everybody, at how woke we are!!! Sigh

    One of the best contemporary fantasy series I have seen. Some of its social commentary is very topical too.

    Gratuitous violence and sex left me sick to my stomach. It's shows like this that helps awaken rapists and murderers I'm sure of it. Just vile and disgusting

    Great adaptation of an outstanding book. Visually, it's out of this world! It is so pleasing to watch and the performances of Ian McShane and Ricky Whittle are excellent. The series is awesome, but it's mostly down to the source material being so damned good. If you like mythology, this one's for you.
