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

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.
