Okay, who has Starz? Mr. Bucky is a huge Neil Gaiman fan, and I'm a fan of many of the actors in American Gods, but we don't have Starz. I'm trying to convince Mr. B we should just buy an Amazon subscription to Starz for a couple months to watch it (I just got a Hulu subscription so I could see Handmaid's Tale, so I feel like I owe him one :D ) but he's reluctant. C'mon FW, tell me that it's good (or not, I guess).

I haven't seen it but am also intrigued so I'll sit back and wait for responses, too

It's out tonight in the UK; I'll report back once I've had a chance to see it. It might not be tonight as I'm planning on catching Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 tonight.

haven't watched yet, but it's in the proverbial queue—still trying to figure out who gets the short straw of having to get Starz...

Watched the first episode finally last night... LOVED IT!

Made me miss Bryan Fullers other shows again too.
Dead Like Me, Pushing Daisies, Hannibal...
Did not care for Wonderfalls or that Mockingbird Lane pilot... but I can't recommend those first 3 enough!

Never saw Dead Like Me, but I really liked Wonderfalls and the other two. I'd agree that Mockingbird Lane was a misfire.

I had no idea it was the same guy---Dead Like Me is Mr. Bucky's favorite show ever, I think (Rick and Morty coming in a close second these days). We've been enjoying the show---have friends who think it's boring and too slow, but geez, I could watch it just to see the acting. At least once an episode I'll yip out loud when I recognize someone I didn't realize was in it. And

Spoiler
Gillian Anderson makes a super hot David Bowie. And Lucille Ball, come to that
