American Gods

Recommended Posts

Anyone else excited for American Gods? I read the book about a decade ago, but I remember it being pretty awesome... though it was pretty dark. 


It's by Bryan Fuller - who did that awesomeven Hannibal show that ended a couple of years ago. Here is the synopsis of the book. 


The central premise of the novel is that gods and mythological creatures exist because people believe in them. Immigrants to the United States brought with them spirits and gods. The power of these mythological beings has diminished as people's beliefs wane. New gods have arisen, reflecting America's obsessions with media, celebrity, technology, and drugs, among other things.

Anyway, I'm excited to see it. Thought I'd share.

Lol. No sir. It's based on the work of Neil Gaiman.. and the show runner was behind a show that shocked ME - which is a real special kind of fucked up, Tim. 

I would guess that he's gone full bore with the material - meaning that he wasn't targeting a family audience.
