Has Jim seen American Gods then? I feel like he'd love it, Aron didn't exactly give it the best pitch - the sexualization/violence isn't that crazy or forward thinking - though it is a part of the show and the gay muslim characters are certainly cool to see.
What made me fall in love with the show is the personification of all these historical/mythological gods and planes of existence brought to life. The small opening scenes and vignettes (especially the Irish and slavic folklore stuff) really got me and pulled me in. That episode that tells the backstory of Mad Sweeney and Essie McGowan was absolutely beautiful. The show is about these gods and what they mean to us (and each other) in the modern world in relation to history. Love the concept to death.
With Fuller being ousted I really hope that the show still has legs. I heard Gillian Anderson may have said she was out.
