  • As a big fan of Gaiman's book, I was stoked to see a premium channel finally bring this to life......and from the advanced reviews, it looks like for as hard as this book would be to interpret to TV, Starz knocked it out of the park.

  • Yea, if there's one person in Hollywood that can translate Gaiman to the screen, it's Fuller.

    First episodes are always puzzling, character introductions and situations that will be part of the storyline later that get explained, the human eating vagina was interesting though.

    I dug the first episode, you can definitely tell it's a Bryan Fuller joint, VERY stylized.

    But it's a perfect marriage for Gaiman's book, which is this esoteric stylized cynical look at old religion battling the new religion of technology.

    Besides, Ian McShane > everything.

    I also like that they made Shadow black, or at least the indication that he's black. In the book it's ambiguous as to what he is, makes for some very interesting commentary and possibilities (as we saw with the last scene of episode 1).

    For sure, from the opening scene it just had that Bryan Fuller aesthetic.

    How much is the book American Gods being changed for TV?

    —Joey L., East Lansing, Michigan

    The adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s 2001 novel, premiering Sunday night as a new series on Starz, will stay somewhat true to how it was written, a parable of various deities and mythological creatures living among contemporary humans. But one of the changes will be the expansion and addition of female roles, including former X-Files star Gillian Anderson, 48. She’ll play Media, a “New God” who feeds off attention and takes the form of various celebrities and pop culture icons.
