American Gods Episode 1 Review: “A Winter’s Tale”

After a lengthy off-season, “American Gods” roared back to life with an impressive season premiere. Stronger dialogue, rich scenery, and camera discipline pulled us into the world as Shadow found his way through Wisconsin and Mr. World found a new face.

In this Deep Dive, we explore American Indian mythology, a more human touch to the show, an improved Tech Boy, a more regal Bilquis, Laura’s sacrifice, and why you should never touch another man’s gris gris.

American Gods Episode 1 Summary:
