I had very high expectations (mixed with a whole lot of trepidation) for this series as the book is in my top three favorites of all time. I must say that it did not disappoint. I suspect that author Neil Gaiman's heavy involvement in the series production had something to do with that. American Gods the television show is a marvel to behold. It's weird and subversive and oh so delicious. Whether you're a fan of the book or have never read it, this show provides a high octane, sinful and strange look at the American landscape. It is well worth checking out.

About an ex-convict hired by a mysterious man and pulled into a dangerous world of ancient and modern gods.

Most of the characters in this show are very interesting, and its intelligent, exciting, and keeps you watching.

Disturbing and dark, but intriguing. Very interesting visuals, although rather dreary-feeling. I thought it picked up a bit after the sorta-zombie became part of the story. I don't always like Gaiman's books (because of the dark/disturbing elements), but I always find myself turning page after page anyway and this TV show version is the same in that I had to watch another episode and another...
