Hi everyone, Bryan here….
I now know what I’ll be doing at the end of April. I’ll be watching Starz’s new show ‘American Gods‘, which is the adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s book. Bryan Fuller (‘Hannibal‘, ‘Pushing Daisies‘) is the showrunner here with Ian McShane, Kristen Chenoweth, Peter Stormare, Crispin Glover, Pablo Schreiber, Ricky Whittle, and more starring. There are monsters, blood, violence, and Gods here. I can’t wait.
The plot posits a war brewing between old and new gods: the traditional gods of biblical and mythological roots from around the world steadily losing believers to an upstart pantheon of gods reflecting society’s modern love of money, technology, media, celebrity and drugs. Its protagonist, Shadow Moon, is an ex-con who becomes bodyguard and traveling partner to Mr. Wednesday, a conman but in reality one of the older gods, on a cross-country mission to gather his forces in preparation to battle the new deities.
Enjoy the trailer.
