Starz’s wonderful take on Neil Gaiman’s tale of modern day gods wasn’t the only great adaptation of American Gods we got recently. Dark Horse has been adapting the novel into comic form over the last year—and to celebrate its latest chapter beginning this week, you can read the first, not safe for work (NSFW) issue…
The grooviest, goriest show on TV is finally back this weekend—and since it sure feels like a hell of a long time since December 2016, when Ash vs Evil Dead’s season two finale aired. So we’re here to refresh your blood-splattered brain on what’s happened on the show so far.
The pilot episode of Counterpart introduced viewers to two versions of Howard Silk; one a no-nonsense field operative, the other a meek paper-pusher. The two men lead their lives in vastly different worlds and, last night, we got to see the Earth that Doppel-Howard hails from.
We’re under a month away from Ash vs. Evil Dead season three, which will continue the blood-soaked adventures of macho horror icon Ash Williams (Bruce Campbell) and his merry band of Deadite-fighters. This time around, Ash’s long-lost teenage daughter will be joining the team and io9 has an exclusive preview.
Howard Silk—played with empathy and aplomb by J.K. Simmons—is a meek desk jockey at a frustratingly bizarre company. At one point, he blurts out “I don’t know what we do here!” When he finds out what happens in his office building and why he’s important to it all, Counterpart gets off to a very good start.
Fans who’ve been yearning for Ash vs. Evil Dead’s third season for over a year ago now have a freshly blood-splattered taste of what’s to come. The latest trailer reveals a bit more about Ash’s long-lost teenage daughter—and basically confirms that Ruby (Lucy Lawless) is back on Team Evil. Yes!
After the exit of showrunners Bryan Fuller and Michael Green—as well as habitual scene-stealer Gillian Anderson—the future of American Gods is uncertain. But the man in charge of the Starz television network has just said the one thing that should help fans keep hope alive: American Gods author Neil Gaiman will be a…
Hot on the heels of news of her exit from the resurrected X-Files, it seems like Gillian Anderson also won’t be returning to play Media on Starz’ American Gods adaptation.
As Easter, the goddess of spring, Kristin Chenoweth played a huge part in the finale of American Gods’ first season. But, with the original showrunners gone, she doesn’t know if she’s going to be back for the next one.
It’s a spy thriller where the opposing sides aren’t countries, but dimensions.
Earlier this year, American Gods debuted to loads of buzz and positive reviews. The philosophical, trippy adaptation of the classic Neil Gaiman novel became one of the most talked-about shows of early 2017. But, in a shocking turn, the men responsible for its existence are reportedly exiting the Starz show.
After five episodes of waiting, Jamie and Claire were finally together again in last night’s heavily-anticipated episode of Outlander. But why keep fans agonizing for almost half the new season to see it? According to Ronald D. Moore, it was a line drawn in the sand due to the show’s commitment to the original novels.
Time-traveling kilt romance series Outlander came back for a solid season three premiere last night, tying up loose ends at the Battle of Culloden and featuring some major character deaths. But it seems as though Starz’s contender for nabbing Game of Thrones’ audience suffers from the same pacing issues that plagued…
The pitch is exciting: Oscar winner J.K. Simmons, an amazing actor we’d pay to see in anything, stars in an espionage show that takes place across parallel universes. Boom, done, sign us up, right?
During his presentation at this year’s Television Critics Association press junket, Starz CEO Chris Albrecht was open about the network’s desire to keep the success it saw with the first season of American Gods moving forward as it looks to the future. Ideally, Albrecht said, American Gods would go on indefinitely.
Most times when we see the personification of death in fiction, it’s presented as a cold or grim persona. Not so for Anubis on the TV show adaptation of American Gods. Here, the Egyptian god of the afterlife is stoic but unexpectedly warm; he has a job to do, one that fills most people with dread, but he doesn’t seem…
Quick, think of the character you hate the most on American Gods. Did you answer Mad Sweeney? Well, the guy who plays him has a strong argument for changing your mind about the oversized wee man of the hills.
When you first get into American Gods and begin to wrap your head around its central premise—that gods are real people who feed on human belief—there’s one god in particular who’s conspicuously missing from Neil Gaiman’s original book and most of the first season of Starz’s television adaptation: Jesus Christ.
American Gods’ debut season has spent every episode telling us that gods walk among us. The final installment of season one finally shows us how powerful they can be and just how far they’ll go to survive. Oh, and Shadow at long last has a come-to-Jesus moment. Actually, at least two come-to-Jesus moments, by my count.
Laura and Mad Sweeney—two of the most messed-up characters on American Gods—spend some quality time together in the show’s seventh episode, and we see how the big ol’ wee person has done both admirable and terrible things over the last 300 years.
