“It's never less than compelling, offering an innovative, fantastical skew on the American immigrant narrative, and a visual feast throughout. If Fuller and Green maintain the sky-high quality of these first two episodes, this will be something very special.”
“It is a wholly unique drama with a clear sense of identity. It’s a fantastic entry in the list of shows that give no care to the whims of pretentious awards culture…It is what it wants to be. It is a show to be reckoned with.”
“Fuller uses American Gods to create an ironic hero’s journey epic, a big saga fantasy a la Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead that casts shade on the genre and transforms our country’s checkered history and high-low culture into a richly subversive mythology.
…I was consistently engrossed. The characters, the concept, the deeply considered filmmaking captured my imagination…I’m fascinated to see where Shadow’s anti-hero odyssey leads, which side of this American Ragnarok he chooses, or if he rejects the gods and bidding to bind his mind, heart and soul once and for all.”
