American Gods (STARZ) -- Season 2 Thread -- premieres 3/10/19





The eight-episode second season of the epic series "American Gods" will premiere on Sunday, March 10th, 2019 at 8PM ET/PT on STARZ and will be available the same day on the STARZ App. Starring Ricky Whittle (The 100, Nappily Ever After) as Shadow Moon and Ian McShane ("Deadwood", John Wick) as Mr. Wednesday, "American Gods" is a one-hour drama adapted from Neil Gaiman's best-selling novel about a war brewing between Old Gods and New Gods: the traditional gods of mythological roots from around the world steadily losing believers to an upstart pantheon of gods reflecting society's modern love of money, technology, media, celebrity and drugs. We were forged in God's image, but the Gods are also made in ours - and in Season Two the battle moves inexorably toward crisis point as the destinies of gods and men collide. While Mr. World plots revenge for the attack against him in Season One, Shadow throws in his lot with Wednesday's attempt to convince the Old Gods of the case for full-out war, with Laura and Mad Sweeney in tow. A council at the House on the Rock explodes into chaos, sending deities both Old and New on quests across America that will converge on Cairo, Illinois: forcing Shadow to carve out a place as a believer in this strange new world of living gods - a dark world where change demands commitment, and faith requires terrible sacrifice.

Renewed for a 3rd season today

I guess no one at DVD Talk is watching.

Charles Eglee was hired as the new showrunner.

He's worked on The Walking Dead, Dexter, The Shield and Dark Angel.

Season 2 is off to a pretty good start. =) Nice to hear it's been renewed for season 3 already. Really figured with all the production issues it'd cause the show to be canceled.

Re: American Gods (STARZ) -- Season 2 Thread -- premieres 3/10/19

I have a question about Greatest Story Ever Told...

Spoiler:
I'm guessing the CEO the Technical Kid goes to see is the same one that created the Bach algorithm from the start of the episode. What was the Technical Kid supposed to convince him of and why? I am guessing since New Media was involved, was it that the CEO had moved away from the how of getting the media to the media itself?

Re: American Gods (STARZ) -- Season 2 Thread -- premieres 3/10/19

Do we need spoilers for an episode that's already aired?

Anyway, Tech Boy was trying to convince the CEO to build a replacement for Argus, using smartphones as the monitoring devices. But smartphones are just the means people use to share a whole mass of data to social media, which is where New Media stepped in.

Also, I thought the beginning of the episode was showing the birth of Tech Boy, from the first true believer.

Great. It takes a lot of patience. And doesnít supply clear answers. Much like a Lindelof show. But itís always entertaining and visually wonderful.

I was just about to start season one tonight but the Lindelof mention has kind of put me off now. The man is a blight on good story telling.

Don't worry, this show is based on a book, so they already have a satisfying end-point to work towards. I personally hate Lindelof, so I wouldn't have mentioned him talking about this show.

I've personally found the 2nd season a bit disappointing, but that's only in comparison to how bat-shit insane the first season one. I felt like Brian Fuller was taking the source material and doing a bit of a "remix" of it, keeping the core but expanding out in exciting new directions. In the 2nd season with Fuller gone, I feel like they've gone back to focus more on the source material and move that story along. It's still well acted and visually beautiful, but as someone who's read the book it's become more predictable.

Fell behind on the show this season and haven't had the motivation to watch more. I suppose I'll eventually get to it, but damn this season was definitely several steps down in comparison with season one.

The second season was fine overall, but the season finale was a huge disappointment. Absolutely nothing happened during the entire episode, other than the "big reveal". Given the scope of the materials, I would be very pissed if they try to pull this same bullshit again in order to squeeze out another two seasons.
