Guys, guys, GUYSSSSS! 

I finally had the chance to watch "American Gods" and it's great!!??!!! Super-recommended to those of you who like mythology, diverse characters and a nice mix of romance, mystery and fantasy. 

I read the book years ago and, because of that, my memory of the story isn't that good, but as I watch the scenes I seem to recall the moments in the story and I'm so pleased because the authors and the casting directors did an amazing job. I kinda love everything? I especially love the actors chose to portray the main characters: Mr. Wednesday, Shadow, Mad Sweeney ... 

I know everyone talked about THAT SCENE between the Jinn and Salim and it deserves all the phraise because it's such a powerful, beautiful, touching scene. There are metas on Tumblr that explore the importance of the scene better than I could ever did. I think you should read those.

But can we talk a moment about Mr. Jacquel (Anubis)? 

Awwwww, guyyyys! First of all, I loved this character in the book. Such a nice, decent ancient god. A super-chill ancient god. 

I LOVE THE CASTING!!! I just liked the whole scene with him and I think that the actor delivered the character's wise, compassionate attitude so well.


"Your best is good."

A nice, understanding deity. A deity who knows humans are flawed creatures. A cool Egyptian god.

So comforting. Thanks!

And, you know, I think I'm going to watch the show from now on. I hope it continues to be good and I surely recommend it here. MYTHOS KAI LOGOS!
