American Gods season 1
Can you imagine the old European and Middle-Eastern gods travel across the Atlantic Ocean to the New World? Just visualize all of them to be alive now and live among ordinary people, besides looking like each of us. Imagine: because of our greed for money, need for technology, the Internet and communication new gods appeared, who are even more ferocious and insatiable than the previous had been. The whole story is based on Neil Gaiman`s book. The main character of the popular serial is Shadow Moon. He was released from the prison a little earlier but unfortunately his wife died this very time. Then Shadow Moon met one man who used to call himself Mr. Wednesday. And this odd man turned out to know every detail of Shadow's past and present perfectly well. So Shadow didn`t have another choice as only to become Mr. Wednesday’s protector. Then Shadow saw really strange and violent America and he became a witness to an awful rivalry between the old gods and the new ones. So who are these curious Misters: Shadow Moon and Mr. Wednesday?
