Fans Have Mixed Feelings About Neil Gaiman’s American Gods TV Show

Neil Gaiman

Neil Gaiman’s American Gods deserves the best production quality, and I’m not so sure it will get it, now.

As one of my personal favorite books, I already had mixed feelings about how a TV show adaptation might ‘ruin’ my well-imagined world of men and mystery. Now, with the announcement that HBO is no longer handling the production of the show, doubt continues to grow.

Today, FreemantleMedia (American Idol, The X Factor) has announced that they finalized the rights to turn this award-winning depiction of myth, religion, and vice into a television production. While it is not new news that HBO dropped the production of this show, it is not encouraging to have a ‘lesser-known’ company pick it up. I seriously hope it does not turn out like The Legend of the Seeker!
Thinking positively, Neil Gaiman wrote The Doctor’s Wife which is an all-time favorite, so if he has a big hand in the script this show might be amazing. Basically, it comes down to this: I’ll watch the show no matter what, but it will be with a bit of trepidation.
