Welcome to American Gods Fan Podcast, Episode 9 "I Am Odin". This is the unofficial podcast about the hit Starz television program American Gods by fans for fans as brought to you by HorrorNewsTV.com, DocRotten.com, and GruesomeMagazine.com. The Grue-Crew behind the Hannibal Fan Podcast reunites to dive into the latest blood-soaked effort of Bryan Fuller as he brings to life the acclaimed novel from Neil Gaiman! Let's set on a cross-country trip across America with Shadow Moon and Mr. Wednesday.

The first season concluded with Episode Eight "Come to Jesus," now the Grue-Crew gather one last time this year to discuss the past eight episodes, wrapping up season 1. American Gods began with the cold open following a group of Vikings exploring the new world, facing unknown threats, and leaning on their gods for guidance and protection. The series ended with Mr. Wednesday proclaiming that he is Odin, the very god those Vikings were praying to all those years ago. Mr. Wednesday is joined by Ostara (or Easter) as they face down the new gods, Media, Technical Boy, and Mr. World. By the end of the episode, Mr. Wednesday's war has begun. Yet, Laura Moon would still like to have a word with her husband, Shadow Moon. Season 2 cannot get here soon enough!

American Gods Fan Podcast: Season One
Episode 9 – I Am Odin
Wrapping Up Season 1

American Gods is an impressive first season with some of the best writing, direction, cinematography, and acting to be found on television. What else would you expect from Bryan Fuller who gave us the fantastic Hannibal series - which we also did a fan podcast for. Together with Tim Green, they have crafted an exciting, challenging, and often controversial series that "wowed" the Grue-Crew at every turn. Ian McShane and Ricky Whittle lead the cast as Mr. Wednesday and Shadow Moon with Emily Browning and Pablo Schrieber supporting them as Laura Moon and Mad Sweeney. The new gods are represented by Gillian Anderson (Media), Bruce Langley (Technical Boy), and Crispin Glover (Mr. World). Their worlds are surrounding by guest stars including but not limited to Yetide Badaki (Bilquis),  Kristin Chenoweth (Easter), Peter Stormare (Czernobog), Orlando Jones (Mr. Nancy), and Omid Abtahi (Salim). The mythology is layered, the tapestry is rich, and the shock & surprises are aplenty. It's an amazing first season for the Grue-Crew to relive as they bid adieu until next year.

Each week, the Grue-Crew will present some of their favorite scenes in two spotlight segments. The first segment is The OMG Moment of the Week where they choose the bloodiest, goriest, most bizarre, most outrageous moment of the week's episode. The second episode of American Gods offers more fantasy oriented choices, far less bloody than last week. Which shocking twist will the hosts decide upon? The second segment is The Folklore Feature of the Week where they look back at the Americana moment of the week or the historical moment dealing with the American Gods themselves. As their story unfolds and their journey across America continues what riches will they present to the audience. Discover which richly flavored storyline peaked the hosts' interest this week.

Welcome to American Gods Fan Podcast, Episode 7 "Prayer for Mad Sweeney". This is the unofficial podcast about the hit Starz television program American Gods by fans for fans as brought to you by HorrorNewsTV.com, DocRotten.com, and GruesomeMagazine.com. The Grue-Crew behind the Hannibal Fan Podcast reunites to dive into the latest blood-soaked effort of Bryan Fuller as he brings to life the acclaimed novel from Neil Gaiman! Let's set on a cross-country trip across America with Shadow Moon and Mr. Wednesday.

Episode Eight concludes season one as Mr. Wednesday finally reveals his true name to Shadow Moon. ODIN! But getting to that moment is pure OMG spectacle and delight. First off, the show introduces Easter (Kristin Chenoweth) - also known as Ostara - who is throwing a big party on her special day. Many of the guests include various incarnations of Jesus Christ, one of which is Shadow's Jesus (Jeremy Davies). Before Mr. Wednesday can convince Ostara to join him in his offensive against the new gods, Media shows up for a "date" with Easter. As all this is going down, Mad Sweeney and Laura Moon arrive hoping that Ostara will "resurrect" Laura back to life. Before the show - and the season - is over, Mr. Wednesday makes his stand and strikes another blow leaving Mr. World to proclaim "Congratulations, you have your war."

Episode 8 – Come to Jesus
Aired June 18, 2017, on Starz

The Grue-Crew rejoice at the dialog and humor along with a killer conclusion that has us anxiously awaiting season 2. Hallelujah! The show plays fast and loose with all the religious jabbing and irony providing the series with some of its best beats and blows at American. Some great stuff. Jeremy Davies embodies Shadow's Jesus with a sly sense of humor and comedic sadness. It's brilliant. Yetide Badaki returns as Bilquis with a back story provided by Mr. Nancy (Orlando Jones) that is pure OMG! But the show's stand out addition is Kristin Chenoweth who steals every single moment and nearly the entire season. So much fun! She talks to bunnies, curses with flair, and has great power and style. She is amazing. The crew also dive into the big moment where Shadow Moment finally realizes what madness he is involved in and declares he "believes, everything."

Each week, the Grue-Crew will present some of their favorite scenes in two spotlight segments.

Episode Seven follows Mad Sweeney and Laura as their journey continues toward Shadow Moon and Mr.Wednesday. They ditch Salim, who is happy to leave their company; but, soon after, a horrific accident reveals a hidden secret and a mysterious agenda. As that part of the story unfolds, Mad Sweeney's origins are given some light with a back story centuries old revolving around an Irish immigrant with a passion for thievery and a heart for leprechauns.

Episode 7 – Prayer for Mad Sweeney
Aired June 11, 2017, on Starz

The Grue-Crew are divided on how effective this week's episode is in telling the overall American Gods story. While no one dislikes this episode, some favor it more than others praising its storytelling and cinematography while debating its place as the penultimate episode of season one. The lack of Shadow Moon and Mr. Wednesday is another curious choice for this bold season. Still, the show has some fine moments and features Mad Sweeney prominently along with Laura and her Irish counterpart. It's character over shock this week as American Gods sets us up for the finale next week. Leave some bread out for this one, folks.

Each week, the Grue-Crew will present some of their favorite scenes in two spotlight segments. The first segment is The OMG Moment of the Week where they choose the bloodiest, goriest, most bizarre, most outrageous moment of the week's episode.

Welcome to American Gods Fan Podcast, Episode 6 "A Murder of Gods". This is the unofficial podcast about the hit Starz television program American Gods by fans for fans as brought to you by HorrorNewsTV.com, DocRotten.com, and GruesomeMagazine.com. The Grue-Crew behind the Hannibal Fan Podcast reunites to dive into the latest blood-soaked effort of Bryan Fuller as he brings to life the acclaimed novel from Neil Gaiman! Let's set on a cross-country trip across America with Shadow Moon and Mr. Wednesday.

Episode Six follows Shadow Moon and Mr. Wednesday to Vulcan, Virginia where they meet the one and only Vulcan (Corbin Bernsen). Mr. Wednesday convinces Vulcan to craft him a sword worthy of a god before learning of Vulcan's betrayal. "Off with his head," so they say. Meanwhile, Laura teams up with Mad Sweeney and Salim as they return to the Crocodile Bar. Sweeney wants to get "Dead Wife" to Mr. Wednesday to help get his magic coin back. Salim is along for the ride as Sweeney has promised to rejoin Salim with the Jinn of his dreams.

Episode 5 – Lemon Scented You
Aired May 28, 2017, on Starz

The Grue-Crew dive into the not-so-subtle context of this week's episode, some of which is controversial indeed. The show begins with layered political comments buried in the cold opener that has a group of Mexican immigrants illegally crossing the border, getting saved by "Jesus", and, then, slaughtered by a squad of redneck border patrols armed with rifles. If that wasn't enough, Vulcan himself dives into the "religion" of guns. Thankfully Mad Sweeney's constant use of "Dead Wife" lightens the tone and Salim's delightfully innocent face softens the blow. Great stuff, fun discussion ... and some listener feedback as well.

Each week, the Grue-Crew will present some of their favorite scenes in two spotlight segments. The first segment is The OMG Moment of the Week where they choose the bloodiest, goriest, most bizarre, most outrageous moment of the week's episode. The second episode of American Gods offers more fantasy oriented choices, far less bloody than last week. Which shocking twist will the hosts decide upon? The second segment is The Folklore Feature of the Week where they look back at the Americana moment of the week or the historical moment dealing with the American Gods themselves.

Welcome to American Gods Fan Podcast, Episode 5 "Lemon Scented You". This is the unofficial podcast about the hit Starz television program American Gods by fans for fans as brought to you by HorrorNewsTV.com, DocRotten.com, and GruesomeMagazine.com. The Grue-Crew behind the Hannibal Fan Podcast reunites to dive into the latest blood-soaked effort of Bryan Fuller as he brings to life the acclaimed novel from Neil Gaiman!

Episode Five dives back into the story following Shadow Moon (Ricky Wittle) and Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane) after Shadow's "dead wife" Laura (Emily Browning) reappears in his hotel room. Before all that can be explain, Mr. Wednesday and Shadow get arrested for robbing the bank a few episodes back. While in lockup, the duo is visited by Media (Gillian Anderson), Technical Boy (Bruce Langley), and Mr. World (Crispin Glover). A few secrets are revealed and the war of the gods is properly seeded. Meanwhile, Mad Sweeney (Pablo Schreiber) bursts into the hotel room to confront Laura about getting his coin back. Sweeney's bad luck is in full swing.

Episode 5 – Lemon Scented You
Aired May 28, 2017, on Starz

The Grue-Crew explore each element of the show in an extended episode needed to cover how stuffed this particular week is. A lot happens in "Lemon Scented You" with a plethora of favorite scenes and fun bits. The biggest of which - at least for Doc Rotten - is the introduction of Mr. World played by fan favorite Crispin Glover who all but steals the show. The confrontation between Mr. World, Media, & Technical Boy and Mr. Wednesday & Shadow Moon is spectacular with revealing moments, foreshadowing, and character building. The war of the gods is set in motion. The dialog is also a delight especially when spoken by Laura Moon - although Mad Sweeney gets a few good lines as well. Director Vincenzo Natali captures the stunning beauty buried in the horror of the week. Great stuff, fun discussion ... and some listener feedback as well.

Each week, the Grue-Crew will present some of their favorite scenes in two spotlight segments. The first segment is The OMG Moment of the Week where they choose the bloodiest, goriest, most bizarre, most outrageous moment of the week's episode.

The Grue-Crew behind the Hannibal Fan Podcast reunites to dive into the latest blood-soaked effort of Bryan Fuller as he brings to life the acclaimed novel from Neil Gaiman! Let's set on a cross-country trip across America with Shadow Moon and Mr. Wednesday.

Episode Four follows the life and death and life of Laura Moon (Emily Browning) as she meets Shadow, falls in love with him, marries him, and betrays him. Only to be resurrected by him. Her story takes place during the first three episodes of American Gods season one, ending on the very note presented in the previous episode. And, it is remarkable.

Episode 4 – Git Gone
Aired May 28, 2017, on Starz

For many in the Grue-Crew, this episode starts off troubling most of the hosts - all, except Thomas. At least, initially. By the midway point, however, the entire Crew is fully on board. The hosts discuss what it all means. Doc ponders does she now have the "sun coin" within her and what happens when Mad Sweeney insists on retrieving it. What will Shadow do now that he has been hurt so badly by Laura and finds her sitting across from him - apparently alive once again? Will she continue to color the show blood red with crimson splatter? The show continues to impress, proving worthy of the early second season renewal. Thank you, Starz!

For many in the Grue-Crew, this episode is a bit all over the place, bouncing between Shadow & Mr. Wednesday, Anubis, Salim & Jinn, and Mad Sweeney. However, that does not mean the show is off the rails just yet. The crew agree the show continues to be exquisite in its cinematography and direction and, when it is on point, the show is riveting. Dave thinks a few scenes went on for too long. Doc loved the show but wants to know what is up with Mr. Nancy and some of the other characters introduced thus far.

Welcome to American Gods Fan Podcast, episode 2 "The Secret of Spoons". This is the unofficial podcast about the hit Starz television program American Gods by fans for fans as brought to you by HorrorNewsTV.com, DocRotten.com, and GruesomeMagazine.com. The Grue-Crew behind the Hannibal Fan Podcast reunites to dive into the latest blood-soaked effort of Bryan Fuller as he brings to life the acclaimed novel from Neil Gaiman! Let's set on a cross-country trip across America with Shadow Moon and Mr. Wednesday.

Episode Two begins with the introduction of Mr. Nancy (Orlando Jones) on a slave ship sailing from Africa to America in the 1600s. "Angry is good. Angry gets shit done!" He implores to the slaves as he sets them free to burn the ship at sea. The show then follows up with Shadow Moon contemplating how he survived Technical Boy's lynching, returning to the hotel room to confront Mr. Wednesday about what exactly is going on. Instead of a straightforward answer, Mr. Wednesday leads Shadow to Chicago. Along the way, Shadow encounters Media (Gillian Anderson) on a store's TV screen posing as Lucy from I Love Lucy. But the show gets interesting once they arrive at the Zoryas' household in the windy city - Vechernyaya (Cloris Leachman) and Utrennyaya (Martha Kelly). It is not long before Czernobog (Peter Stormare) returns home raising the stakes.

Episode 2 – The Secret of Spoons
Aired May 7, 2017, on Starz

Dave quickly describes this week as "the best second episode you could possibly hope for." The rest of the Grue-Crew wholeheartedly agree. "The Secret of Spoons" offered riveting dialog, spectacular cinematography, and a delicious series of new characters to cheer for and ponder about. Add to that, where else are you going to hear Gillian Anderson inquire "Hey, you ever want to see Lucy's tits?" Truly brilliant! But it must be said that Peter Stormare stole the episode in a role he was born to play, Czernobog. Seriously, has a game of checkers ever been this tense? It is another great week for American Gods that immediately grabs you by the boo-boo with the spectacular performance from Orlando Jones glorious chewing the scenery with the Mr. Nancy dialog. Still it isn't all love fest for the Grue-Crew, there's still plenty to discuss and debate and enjoy with their dicussion about the second episode.

Each week, the Grue-Crew will present some of their favorite scenes in two spotlight segments. The first segment is The OMG Moment of the Week where they choose the bloodiest, goriest, most bizarre, most outrageous moment of the week's episode.
