It is a shame that this television show never got another season, but at least it got a movie even though it could have been better just like the Cowboy Bebop movie (Cowboy Bebop: The Movie) could have been better.
I was one of the people who did not watch this television show until several years after it aired, and I liked it and I regretted that I never did watch it back when it had aired.
The beginning credits theme song (Firefly – Main Title · Sonny Rhodes) for this show is great and perfectly sums up this television show and its mood, and brings back a sense of nostalgia and more.
So I read the article and I watched the video in the article, and then I went to YouTube to watch the official trailer and the official first look trailer that was in the American Gods playlist on the official Starz YouTube channel.
I never heard of or read the American Gods book before, but this trailer looks interesting.
Combining real world mythology and fictionalized mythology with deities (gods and goddesses) in an American (United States) setting and context and perspective sounds like an interesting combination, and like something that I would like to watch when it comes out and I might even read the book.
