The cast is stellar. And the actors are very recognizable and among the best on television. They include Gillian Anderson, Cloris Leachman, Jonathan Tucker, Orlando Jones, Ian McShane, Crispin Glover, and Pablo Schreiber. The cinematography is equally as stellar as the series grabs a hold of the viewer immediately, and never let’s go. The show depicts the Greek Gods of old as being alive and well. The story revolves around a character named Shadow Moon who unknowingly aligns himself with the “Old Gods” as they prepare to battle the “New Gods” of technology and pop culture. This provides the viewer with a very interesting metaphor for the old ways of the world coming into direct conflict with the ways of the modern-day world.

American Gods leaves absolutely nothing to the imagination in sex-scenes

One of the old Gods is The Jinn, which is a sort of like a genie without a lamp. In this story the Jinn is an Arab-American cab driver. He just happens to the most well endowed man on Earth. The Jinn is nearing the end of his life, and is looking to transfer his power to another person. It turns out that the way a male Jinn transfers his power in this story is by ejaculating inside the anus of another Arab-American… and they show it using heat-sensor imaging. It’s a bit hard to explain, but let’s just say it leaves absolutely nothing to the imagination. They even go as far as to show his partner’s erect penis during the sex scene. Needless to say, I was stunned. I had no prior warning of what was to come. The scene serves as a sign post to tell the viewer that this series is not anything like you might expect. It also is not quite like anything else currently on television.

The characters are well defined. The story progresses at a steady rate. Some of the situations and characters are a bit out there. But the cinematography more than makes up for it. It comes packaged as eight one-hour episodes, so it’s perfect for a weekend binge session.

I highly recommend watching American Gods: season one

I highly recommend watching American Gods: season one on-demand as soon as possible. Be ready for season two when it airs. I recommend this because this series is a lot more fun to watch weekly. It keeps you guessing the whole time. Even though season one aired during the spring of 2017, season two won’t be aired until sometime in 2019 so you still have time to catch up.
