American Gods Season 2

I haven't started season 2 yet, so please no spoilers, but how has this season been?  I'm a bit worried about the quality.


  • I’ve really enjoyed the 1st 2 episodes. They stand up to quality and enjoyment of last season so far 
  • Yeah, I also think it's as good as S1 so far!
  • Doctor_NickDoctor_Nick Terminus
    As far as I remember they're now making quite a few changes from the original version of the novel that I remember.  Will be interesting to see where they go with it.  
  • The show has felt slow for the last couple of episodes. It's reminding me of The Walking Dead farm/prison arcs. I think part of the problem is it's spending too much time jumping around between too many separated characters. There was no team Mr. World at all in the most recent episode. A show shouldn't ignore important characters for episodes at a time. Why the focus on Talking Head on a Stick ghost? Ain't nobody got time for that, we're supposed to be in the middle of a war.

    Emily Browning is a chain smoker IRL. It's funny, in the most recent episode, I noticed she randomly lights a cigarette in the background and starts smoking "in character". New game: count the number of times Emily Browning smokes a cigarette in American Gods.
  • Doctor_NickDoctor_Nick Terminus
    They've added a lot on to the African/American/Black gods and the issues of their people from what I remember in the novel.
  • Strange. They just dropped Shadow's arc with the decapitated ghost from the previous episode. I guess that's finished now?

    Shadow being Wednesday's son was teased a few times.

    We got to see Telephone Boy. Maybe this is setting up the thing mentioned in the podcast, of Technical Boy coming out of the Poké Ball in an evolved form. But what's more advanced than Technical Boy? And interestingly, we see Wednesday working with the New Gods in these flashbacks.
