Without making spoilers I would like to say some things:
1) Ian McShane is perfect. His "revelation" speech was so cool! I love his voice and the way he carries this old bastard of a character with such elegance and confidence. A+++
2) Anansi is great. I love the way he told the old Queen's story and, again, great casting! This cast is flawless! Maybe I would have picked someone else for Easter? Not that the chosen actress isn't great, but I imagined the character differently and I loved that bit when she complained about her thights getting thicker and Shadow was super into it.
3) Shadow is a freaking puppy! Ricky Whittle is a real life, 100% certified cute puppy!
4) Emily, Pablo, Gillian ... did I ever mention the fact that I LOVE THIS CAST?? Most talented, beautiful people.
5) Speaking of beautiful, gratuitous picture of Yetide Badaki because of reasons:
Literally the most beautiful woman alive???
I can't wait to see more of this show next year. So far, so good. Thanks Starz!
