TV show description:
A fantasy drama based on the Neil Gaiman novel of the same name, the American Gods TV show centers Shadow Moon (Whittle), who accepts a job offer from the enigmatic conman known as Mr. Wednesday (McShane).
After completing his prison sentence, Shadow Moon encounters Mr. Wednesday and a storm blows in — one that will completely change his life.
Unmoored by the death of his wife, Laura (Browning), Shadow signs on as Mr. Wednesday’s bodyguard. Doing so escorts him into a strange reality he finds difficult to comprehend. In this secret world, gods and magic are real. The Old Gods are alarmed by the increasing potency of the New Gods — like Technical Boy (Langley).
Mr. Wednesday is a cunning if charming, old con man. In order to defend the existence of the Old Gods in the New World, he strikes out to form an alliance between them, so that they can defend themselves and restore some of their stature, significance, and sway.
Will he be able to recruit the ancient goddess of love, Bilquis (Bakaki)? Her hunger for adoration and devotion is far from sated in the current day.
A leprechaun whose luck has soured, Mad Sweeney (Schreiber) cannot understand how he lost his charisma, never mind his way. Still, it is fortunate he is always up for a brawl since that comes with the territory when one is in Mr. Wednesday’s employ.
Traversing the U.S. with Mr. Wednesday, Shadow wrestles with this new reality and his role in it.
Episode #26 — Tears of the Wrath-Bearing Tree
Teetering on the edge of war and peace, the gods gather to mourn a loss; Bilquis’ divine journey brings her to an unexpected revelation; Shadow finally embraces destiny.
First aired: March 21, 2021.
What do you think? Do you like the American Gods TV show? Do you think it should have been cancelled or renewed for a fourth season?
I fell in love with this show for countless reasons but the introduction of new characters always kept things exciting. I always kinda expected that once the war kicked off all the God’s of Olympus would make some big badass entrance on to the scene. Then just like the series Camelot which I also loved the idiots at Starz canceled it. Eat a di#% Starz
Please bring back American Gods! It was one of my favorite shows.
Love it! Please do not end it with Our beautiful Shadow’s disappearance by his father’s deception-More please, Rickie Whittle is a bright light.
Don’t cancel! Finish the story.
