In Which I Review American Gods (1x8)
--The art director for this show deserves all the awards not only for every single shot of Easter's house but also for the carefully constructed sewing room at Mr. Nancy's. Talk about gorgeous!
--"Once upon a time...see it sounds good already. You're hooked." Anansi doing what Anansi does best, telling a tall tale.
--Can we start a petition to have Ricky Whittle dress in grey and lavender all the time? Damn.
--"Worship is volume based; whoever has the most followers wins the game."
--I don't think I'd welcome Wednesday into my house either if he kept running over my bunny rabbits.
--"What are you pissed off about?" "You just cut off your friends head!"
--"People create gods when they wonder why things happen. Why do things happen? Because gods make things happen."
--There is a great power in sacrifice, most religious texts and traditions will tell you that. Notice that Laura was a sacrifice to get Shadow to where he is now, literally and mentally. Also, take note that Odin dedicates the deaths of the faceless men to Ostara which seems to give her some sort of power that she previously lacked.
--"Do you believe, Shadow?" "I believe." "What do you believe?" "Everything."
--I have enjoyed every single second of this show and reviewing it this season. The writers, actors, the producers, and everyone else have done Neil Gaiman and his magnificent work proud. Thanks to everyone who read! See you in season two.
