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.
It's a weird and wonderful shot in the arm for TV fans looking for something a little different.
