| Weird, but in a good way
First off, the series is rather unconventional. You do not wanna expect typical mystery / scifi stuff, or you'll be disappointed, as so many are.

The strength of Americans Gods is really strong acting, very interesting characters that get you hooked onto, and a carefully, intelligently developed story that unfolds around all of that.

Like I said in the beginning, this series does not want to be action centered, it deals with mythical/philosophical questions and puts it into context to the real world. Yet this might seem weird to a few people, it is not exceeding the boundaries to become pure art-fiction. Though there are lots of artistic pictures and metaphors, it is always rooted to reality. At least if you have a bit of a sense for fantasy or a passion for philosophical questions.
