5 Reasons We Love Watching: 'American Gods'

All hail and praise the gods for this adaptation of Neil Gaiman's book. A match made in the heavens for writer Bryan Fuller (known for Pushing Daisies and Hannibal), he takes full advantage of the magical realism in the world of American Gods by, essentially, marrying Hannibal's artsy flair to Pushing Daisies' whimsical comedy. Fuller doesn't just adapt the novel, he adds much-needed content and fills plot holes. So, without further ado, here are five reasons to watch the Starz series American Gods.

5. As with all Bryan Fuller shows, the visuals are insane.

 

 

4. The mythology is complex and spans eons. (Because duh.)

 

 

3. The humor incorporates both mythology and modern views.

 

 

2. Emily Browning (known for A Series of Unfortunate Events and Sucker Punch) kills it as Laura Moon. Literally.

 

 

1. It's just guest star after guest star after guest star.

Now that season 1 is done, it's a good time to catch up on the series. If you're already caught up, and are dying for more, you could try The Almighty Johnsons, a great show from New Zealand, which is very similar, funnier, and slightly lower budget.
