Bald move American Gods coverage?

edited April 21 in Other TV
I'm sorry if this has been addressed already, but is there going to be Bald Move coverage for American Gods? It's a Starz series and idk if Jim & A. Ron have read the book.

I was wondering if this has been addressed at some point.


I hope this show is at least covered in Bald Move TV. The initial reviews have been great, and American Gods/ Neil Gaiman is one of my favorite books/ authors of all time.

The eight-episode first season is set to premiere on April 30, 2017.

  • I think it came up during a lunch. A.Ron is not on board, Jim is mildly interested.
    I'm guessing the reviews would need to be good, the forums would need to get hot, and we can probably gin up fury to get them to at least check it out, and hope some coverage ok BaldMove TV.

  • Love American Gods, I'm re-reading now ahead of the premiere. Doubt there will be time for Bald Move coverage as there are so many shows now, but I'm guessing there are enough fans to keep a discussion going in the forums.

    Indeed.

    I've seen some trailers and have changed my mind.  There's no room for full coverage, but look for it on Bald Move TV.  I'll probably get some co-hosts to help out since I don't know if Jim will be watching.

    Fan-friggin'-tasting!
    I thought Eric did a mighty fine job filling in for you last week.
    Would Cecily be interested in watching and podcasting this one? I really liked your Young Pope coverage.
    Perhaps another joint venture with the Nattercast?

    Sweet!

    The book is a pretty quick read ... and well worth it IMO if you want to go into it w/ "book reader knowledge." I think it'd be right up your alley, as it has a lot of religious mythology from all sorts of different cultures ... plus a lot of the settings are in the Midwest.

    ARon,

    I know Jason from podcastica mentioned he will be covering it. Just an FYI in case you wanted to hit him up. He didn't say anything about a release schedule or who his co-host would be.

  • I just read the book for the first time, I will be buying Starz to watch this.  And I guess hopefully see what Black Sails is/was about.  

    Anyone know does buying an add on subscription through Amazon versus the cable company give you any different access to past seasons?  Like I think Amazon has all of the Expanse Season 1, but my cable on demand doesn't.....
  • I'm not sure about Starz and Amazon in the States, but thankfully over here Amazon Prime will have American Gods day 1. I'm so glad more networks are figuring out how to make their shows available to a global audience from the first day.

    I'm more excited for this show than anything else. Been eagerly anticipating it ever since it was announced.
  • Just in case anyone's interested I saw that "Anansi Boys" is a Kindle deal right now for 1.99. It's not exactly a sequel to American Gods, but it's kind of in the same universe as it features one of the same Gods and it is a fun, breezy read.

  • @Doctor_Nick Definitely check out Black Sails if you get Starz anyway. I know it's over, but it's one of the few shows that gets better and better with each season. I didn't think the first season was fantastic, but it was good enough, and only improved from then on. Awesome music, visuals, and some amazing character developments. I don't understand why it was so severely underrated, so I encourage people to watch it whenever I can!

  • Haven't read it yet, but Neil Gaiman just published a book on Norse Mythology. Seems like that would dovetail nicely with American Gods coming to tv.
    DaveyMac
  • Yeah Norse Mythology was a really fun read and definitely fits in with American Gods. I'd definitely recommend it.

  • The previews look bonkers, early reviews are good, and it's Bryan Fuller, so day one for me.  I'm surprised Bald Move is looking at some kind of coverage, considering Fuller's previous masterpiece (Hannibal) was blacklisted at the Baldies and has never been mentioned on air.

    In my experience, premium pay channels provide their entire catalogue, whereas cable and broadcast networks license past seasons to other platforms, so your cable service provider may not be able to show those on demand. 

    The only difference I know of offhand between Starz online and via cable is that some of their shows drop all the episodes after the premiere airs on their website and app, but I doubt that's the case with American Gods.
    Stop pissing in my soup and saying you're cooling it off.

    Even if everything is not on demand, subscribing through your cable provider typically still gets you access to the channel's full catalog through their website or app. HBO Go being the most prominent example, but it looks like Starz has an app available on most platforms that you can access using your cable login.

  • @GredalBee im with you. Day one because of Fuller's Hannibal. His vision in incredible. I'm looking forward to this.
    Shit, you shoot me in a dream, you better wake up and apologize.

    Starz is cheaper if you buy it thru Apple TV/Itunes and you can watch it on your TV or on your phone via the app.

    I think it's also the same cheaper price ($8.99/mo) if you subscribe through Amazon.
