Storyline

Shadow is a man with a past. But now he wants nothing more than to live a quiet life with his wife and stay out of trouble. Until he learns that she's been killed in a terrible accident. Flying home for the funeral, as a violent storm rocks the plane, he is greeted by a strange man in the seat next to him. The man calls himself Mr. Wednesday, and he knows more about Shadow than is possible. He warns Shadow that a far bigger storm is coming. And from that moment on, nothing will ever be the same.

Finally, Its here! "AMERICAN GODS"
1 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

After years of waiting its here, American gods first episode of its TV adaption from the best seller novel by Neil Gaiman as a reader of the original source materiel i cant be more thrilled. I am a fan of Bryan Fuller previous work "Hannibal" so i think that style of cinematography fits American gods despite being a bit bizarre but still fits really well with the theme of this show. The two main characters and Rickey and Ian are great so far, specially Mr. Wednesday the character and the actor are so perfect, also the acting thus far i have to say is really good. Well overall its been a good premier episode and its better than my expectation and cant wait for this to turn into something special or at least do good for the novel and its characters and content overall.
