Warning: This podcast is a series podcast

This means episodes are recommended to be heard in order from the very start. Here's the 10 best episodes of the series anyway though!

Rank #1: Ep.03: American Gods - 101 - The Bone Orchard

Podcast cover
Read more

"American Gods" Episode 1 showered us in blood, dazzled us with Ian McShane and provided the first on-screen depiction of a man swallowed whole by a vagina (Big D thought it was sexy). What more do you want?

Someone, to help make sense of it all? We got you, Boo.

The action gripped us. The soundtrack, visual effects, and performances were better than most series' finales. Thus, we're willing to forgive a few inconsistencies and give "American Gods" the Shat on TV seal of approval.

You wanted a positive podcast? You got a positive podcast! American Gods' Season One finale, "Come To Jesus," gave us more of what we love about the show and answered a slew of questions.

Rank #7: Ep.11: American Gods - 105 - Lemon Scented You

Podcast cover
Read more

Notice anything different about American Gods: Episode 5? We did.

"Lemon Scented You" was the first American Gods episode not written by showrunners Bryan Fuller and Michael Green. Instead, viewers got a taste of David Graziano's take on Neil Gaiman's universe. And it was a winner.

What was the opening CGI sequence all about? What does Mr. World represent? Why did Laura Moon's heart start beating? And was the arrest scene necessary? All the answers are right here on the American Gods podcast.

Rank #10: Ep.05: American Gods - 102 - The Secret of Spoons

Podcast cover
Read more

American Gods Episode 2: "The Secret of Spoons" divided a growing audience and sparked debate over Orlando Jones' depiction of old god Anansi. And then there was Robbie's dick pic and the Space Boner.

This week's topics also include Gillian Anderson's portrayal of Media, Bilquis breaking the Fourth Wall, Shadow Moon's importance to the gods, and Czernobog's prolonged screen time.

Among all the thrill and shock value, Starz is building a solid, artistic show that isn't afraid to take chances and treat us to beautiful camera tricks and visual delights.
