Re: American Gods - Starz Sunday

This latest episode, Git Gone, may've been the best episode of television ever.

I'm trying to hold off on spilling my guts. I'm having an extremely hard time keeping it to myself.

Re: American Gods - Starz Sunday

See, this is the first one I didn't really enjoy as much.

I think a combination of the storyline not progressing at all (ending in the same place as the previous ep), and the show going off-script to where it contradicts itself (in episode 1, the show stated, as in the book, that Shadow was in jail for assault. Now, all of a sudden, he's in jail for robbing the casino? What?).

The scene with Audrey was hysterically funny.
It was cool seeing the Egyptians.

Otherwise, it seemed kind of like a waste of time.

Honestly, I think the world's going to end bloody. But it doesn't mean we shouldn't fight.
We do have choices. I choose to go down swingin'.

The highlighted portion was one of the most unique aspects of the episode. When it ended (and I knew that's where it was heading), I looked at TPTB (Mrs. Hodgepodge) and said, "Now, that was a HELL of an episode."

I didn't mind the storyline not progressing for two reasons.

One, it was a "flashback", and everyone knows how much I love a flashback. Plus, it answered my assumption that Laura didn't have an affair.

She had an affair alright. And, she was actually found with the guys penis in her mouth. Just damn!

I didn't catch the contradiction, but I bet I can put aside your consternation?

After reading your post, I immediately thought he tried to get away and beat on a couple of casino employees. I assumed it wasn't fighting the police, because it wasn't resisting arrest. JMO!

What a great scene, especially since Laura was standing there holding her arm that had been ripped off.

Speaking of her arm...So that's how Shadow survived that lynching. It was Laura coming to his aid. What unbridled strength and power.

Vonne, when the episode opened with the Egyptian walking thru the scene, I thought we were going to get another history lesson. I was pleasantly surprised.
