I’ve finished the book and want to watch the series. I was wondering is there anything from the other books in the series? I don’t want to get spoilers since i will read the other books too.

I recently started watching the show (haven't read the books) and was intrigued by the reviews and watching the trailer. I'm two episodes in and some scenes are visually incredible but I'm so lost. Which is making me hesitant to keep watching. I have heard the show does very little to help the tv show viewers understand whats happening.

Is there a payoff in the end and does the show get easier to understand?

Just watched the season finale, and it was so well done it choked me up. The show has far surpassed my expectations. If only I could say the same for Preacher.

Does anyone have a rip of the Opening Intro featurette? The one article I found talking about it, the video has been removed. I couldn't find it searching the subreddit for "opening intro" or "featurette." Many thanks.

Heya folks, I'm in desperate need trying to find a just vocals and clapping version of this song https://youtu.be/TIOOlc-ZWmw sorta like what played in the background of the early season 1 trailer. Any help would be super duper helpful. Thanks!

Im a third way through the book and am thinking about watching the show without spoiling the book.

So, there's this scene in episode 2 when Czernobog arrives. And while Shadow Moon is on the screen, plays this MARVELOUS violin instrumental, that i searched everywhere and can't find :C

Here's the scene https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4N46YpjQv9E

It’s been over a decade since I’ve read the book, but I feel like I would’ve remembered such a passionate scene between two male lovers, but I have almost no recollection of this happening in the book. I don’t have a problem with it but I was just curious.

So one of the curious things about the way the media (WashPost, NYTimes, Al Jazeera, The Atlantic) is covering this volcano eruption is their eagerness to name-drop Pele (who is a fire goddess and supposedly lives inside Kilauea). But it’s not just the media either, but public officials including a mayor and residents interviewed by the press. CNN has a story out about people leaving gifts for Pele in a bid for her to spare their homes. It’s pretty fascinating and made me think of AG, especially since it’s more superstition than religious (especially the stories where you have residents invoking both the Christian god and Pele in the same sentence). It’s also doubly fascinating because the reverence isn’t limited to Native Hawaiians but to people who just moved from other states.

Just go to Google News and type: “Pele” to read the different articles.

bryan fuller and michael green can fuck right off. season 1 was amazing, but neil gaiman straight up confirmed that they quit bc the NINE MILLION per episode wasnt enough for them. i'm sorry, but the story of american gods is so good, a good enough storyteller could do it cheap af and it'd still be amazing. asking for a ridiculous amount of money for a tv show (after only its first season, no less) that pretty much directly defies the morals of the book it's based on is just kinda rude. i cant wait to see how season 2 turns out. if neil is still involved, itll be perfect.

Am I the only book fan that would be happy to see a different actress portray Easter (Ostre) in season 2. Chenoweth had the personality down perfectly but she was far too small of a woman to portray the voluptuous motherly Ostre.
