American Gods has already premiered to rave reviews, bringing in fans both old and new with a fantasy series based on Neil Gaiman’s novel of the same name. Bryan Fuller and Michael Green serve as showrunners on the series, bringing their unique style and flair to proceedings as viewers go on an unforgettable journey with ex-convict Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle). Released early from prison, Moon quickly becomes embroiled in a dangerous game between gods both old and new that reside in America, vying for power and worship in a world that moves on quicker than anyone could anticipate. The story is certainly a strange one, but utterly worthwhile. Season 1 consists of eight episodes.
