American Gods Episode 2 Review: “The Beguiling Man”

It’s just a bit of fun!

Magic is in the air as we record our loosest American Gods podcast yet. Gene gets the giggles. The King Bee gets WAY geeky about comic books, and listener Kenny P calls in with a choice voicemail. After the end credits, stay tuned for The King Bee’s tale of Odin’s eight-legged horse, Ol’ Slippy.

Season 2’s second installment showed us “American Gods” still has a few tricks up its sleeve: Mr. Wednesday painting the modern world in ancient terms, Shadow Moon’s flashbacks giving us reasons to care, and maybe even a romance brewing between Laura Moon and Mad Sweeney? (please no)

Dean Winters’ Mr. Town fell a little flat. Attempts at comedy widely missed the mark, Brooklyn was a bit too colorful, and Crispin Glover’s Mr. World is growing a bit stale. But overall, Season 2 seems to be shaping up as an improvement over its predecessor. Fingers crossed for season 3.

Storyline for “The Beguiling Man”:
Episode 2: Promising vengeance for the death of a beloved old god, Mr. Wednesday begins preparation for a great battle; Laura and Mad Sweeney chase Shadow’s diminishing light after he disappears.
