American Gods: Season 2 (2019)

SEASON:

TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: American Gods retains its bombastic style but loses its divine inspiration in a derivative second season that, after a change in show-runners and even some crucial cast members, feels like a false idol.

Critic Reviews for American Gods Season 2

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (7)

American Gods is building to something - an apocalyptic clash of ideas about who we are, what we believe and what defines us. The thing is: It's looking to be a long trip... But man, the scenery is pretty.

Watch this show cynically, and the whole edifice might topple down. But go along with it and it's one hell of a ride. Like the gods themselves, American Gods requires - and rewards - your unquestioning faith.

After all the work done to keep the show going - and the very real risk it might not keep going - one would hope for more onscreen urgency. Instead, it just continues on, as if nothing changed and nothing will.

The frenetic, kinetic punk/anarchic sci-fi fantasy aspects, accentuated during the industrial toxic neon intro credits, combined with digital flies and spiders, is odd, redolent and alluring.

In its current form, this show plays like an Instagram-ready cupcake: layers of decorative frosting with nothing substantial at its core.

American Gods is missing the magic of its provocative first season, but the cast remains as compelling as ever.

Mar 11, 2019 | Rating: 6.9/10 | Full Review…

American Gods' main character is a backseat passenger in his own story.

Mar 8, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

I can't entirely despise a TV show where Peter Stormare plays a Slavic deathlord who gleefully mumbles, "I am cancer!" But consider yourself warned: Do not worship false Gods.

Mar 4, 2019 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

The series has lost some of the visual flair that helpfully contrasted with the material's most languid, expository moments.

Mar 8, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

What it lacks in terms of general drive, or things happening, it makes up for in ethereal tone.
