American Gods – S:1 (2017– )

I can’t say it’s an easy watch. David Slade, king of the slow motion contemplation, sets the tone for the series. It’s strong on arresting images, weaker on connecting them to character development. The lead, Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) lacks agency, he just tags along with Wednesday but we never know why? So he’s carried by events rather than doing something that has consequences. It works in the book better than it does on screen. I’m still interested enough to watch Season 2.
