This visually stunning and aesthetically pleasing work of American fiction comes straight from the mind of Neil Gaiman, who authored the best-selling novel 'American Gods'. The series is famous for its dark undertones and equally dark characters, and has found a way to humanize the Gods we know (and some we don?t). American Gods is the story about the old gods who are getting pushed out of the limelight due to the rise of new gods, and because of the encroachment, the old gods are preparing for battle in order to restore their rightful place as true gods. The series is chock-full of mystical symbolism and its underlying mysticism will keep a viewer enthralled throughout its first season if you're not already charmed by Ian McShane's performance as Mr. Wednesday aka Odin. This series is a must watch for those viewers who love shows which touch upon the lines of religion, the occult, and impeccable story-telling.
