Himself announced last month that Starz has officially picked up American Gods (and the I subsequently geeked out). It also looks like he will be writing some of the episodes as well.

How long do you think until we start hearing casting rumours??

I prefer to live in a country that's small, and old, and where no one would ever have the NERVE to wear a cape in public, whether they could leap tall buildings in a single bound or not.

Does anybody else think it's going too fast?

Not in the least. They're breaking up the book into at least three seasons, with the current one ending before House on the Rock.

I enjoyed it, I think.
I'm not convinced that the wonderful floaty greyness I got from the book is well implemented into the screen adaption, perhaps this'll develop as the series continues.
(Also the music is crap)

I just felt like he was in the alligator bar in like five minutes and I just wanted it to slow down everything was happening so fast. I do see your point though.

Reading the reviews on Amazon, it strikes me that the show has done avery poor job introducing the world to people that haven't read the book which isn't terribly surprising, unfortunately it seems to have meant that quite a few people have simply given up on it.

Possibly it will catch on a bit when people can just bingewatch all the episodes? I know that's what I'm waiting for. I can't guarantee that I'll be able to settle and watch on one specific night and so I would rather watch it all, when I want to/can.

I've been spoiled by Netflix and Amazon Prime. Even with Doctor Who - I no longer have access to BBC America and so I can't watch it online unless I sign in, which I can't do.

And then I found out AG would be several seasons, well... I've read the book, I can wait.

I really liked it! Someone on Twitter said "it's been Art Directored to within an inch of it's life" which... yeah. I agree. I kind of love that.

The thing that's missing, for me, is the personality and vulnerability of Shadow as a narrator in the book. On screen, he has to be simultaneously a "shadow' of a man so we understand how other characters react to him, and our eyes into this world. I feel like he'd doing a good job of the former, but the nature of television means it's nearly impossible to do the second.

I didn't realize how badly I needed Shadow's company to make the world in the book understandable, or at least absorb-able and bearable. I badly miss looking at things through his eyes, being inside his head. He's not as interesting from the outside.

I have a silly question about the series. (I have not read the books)...How does a God actually get hurt by Shadow moon in the croc bar when they fight? Are they no more powerful than humans in this show? Are they supposed to be human now? It is a bit confusing.

GJ, the Gods are powerful sure, but Mad Sweeney is long past his prime. No one has seriously believed in Leprechauns for years and he very definitely inhabits the physical world and as such is subject to at least some of the laws that govern it.
