Critic Reviews for American Gods: Season 1

All Critics (77) | Top Critics (24)

American Gods has been pretty mind-blowing so far. What's looming is not merely a clash of titans, or even a clash of individual gods - it's a clash of pantheons.

Sydney Morning Herald

The show's creators ... have put together a show with sensuous cinematography, full, tight shots, and bold colors, plunging the viewer even further into the world of gods and magic.

The Nation

This is a vivid, technicolor fever dream, awash in mysticism and the occult, remarkably strange yet oddly accessible. In short, American Gods is something of a miracle, worthy of being worshipped.

American Gods can get obtuse at times but rarely is it boring, populated with the bizarre.
