American Gods. Weren't they going to change stuff? First episode is practically the book verbatim, makes me wonder why I bothered watching. Certainly not for the Zack Snyder slo-fast-mo blood spatter nonsense. Skip if you've already read it, it adds nothing of value.
Did you turn 30 recently? I swear, you're getting more cynical by the hour
and to be fair, the viking scene at the start o' the first episode is not how the novel began. when the viking longboat myth is eventual shared in the book, it is less campy, and is much darker than fuller's version. laura has also been dealt with different than in the novel. even so, along with a bit o' unnecessary exposition in episode 2, failure to use the longboat story from the novel would be our biggest complaint thus far.
technical boy has clear been updated as well, though am thinking he needed one.
gonna be a multi-season series for a ~450p book? is gonna be, we suspect, plenty o' new material. cause for concern and anticipation, eh?
HA! Good Fun!
ps am thinking the buffalo-man works better as a buffalo. minor change, but...
pps (late edit) is likely other differences, but in the spirit o' full disclosure, even though Gromnir has ridiculous good memory, we read american gods sixteen years ago. an suspecting we will miss multiple changes.
