After a disappointing last few episodes, the finale got the ball rolling again, but unfortunately it all came a bit too late. Still, some wonderful performances and very creative art direction.
American Gods: Season 1, Episode 7 review
American Gods takes us away from the main plot again to fill us in on the backstory of Mad Sweeney. Not a particularly rewarding or relevant episode. It’s time that things got back on track, but next week is the finale…
American Gods: Season 1, Episode 6 review
Episode 6 sees us get back into the road trip side of things. Two road trips in fact, both equally strange, and confusing.
American Gods: Season 1, Episode 5 review
Gillian Anderson is back as the truly twisted ‘Media’ and her many guises, including an uncanny David Bowie impersonation. A lot more of the newer gods in this episode, including the welcomed introduction of Crispin Glover as Mr World in a truly psychedelic prison break scene.
American Gods: Season 1, Episode 4 review
Despite Emily Browning getting a chance to show off the intriguing and powerful character that is the dead wife Laura, Ricky Whittle’s Shadow continues to be little more than just a pretty face.
American Gods: Season 1, Episode 2 review
An incredible dark and twisted second episode with a distinctive road movie feel to itself. Some interesting new characters come to surface, but none as intriguing as Gillian Anderson’s ‘Media’ – a serious ‘wow’ moment mid-episode.
American Gods: Season 1, Episode 1 review
The first episode of American Gods does a decent job of introducing us to the extreme characters, and the extreme violence, of Neil Gaiman’s bestselling book. A memorable pilot that leaves us itching for more of this fascinating underworld of gods. Something tells me with but only scratched the surface of this massive universe.
