| An irreverent trip to the heart of Mythology in America.
Casting: As things stand, this is some of the best casting in a book-to-TV adaptation I have seen in recent memory. Each character is given their moment to shine and the cast brings it to a new level. Truly a relief considering this is one of Gaiman's most compelling works.

Music: Spot on! Very fitting for the emotion and gravity felt in each scene.

Story: Stays very close to the original book narrative, but gives some of the most fascinating characters a little more screen time.

Tone: Surprisingly whimsical at times. It may seem jarring for folks unfamiliar with the original work on the storytelling style of the show runners. There's violence and sex in abundance, but beneath it all, there's an existential dread among the Old Gods.

Overall: 10/10

Could not recommend this show any more highly!
