Critic Reviews for American Gods: Season 1

American Gods is violent, gory, sexual, grimy and eccentric. It's also one of the most beautiful, sensual and invigorating new television series that takes every aspect of show-running Bryan Fuller is known for and accentuates it.

American Gods is mythic in scope. Almost a Game of Thrones set inside our world. You can feel elements of other programs in this series, but it's also unique in the television landscape.
