Ohboyohboyohboy!!! For those of you that have read Neil Gaiman's American Gods, this is some exciting news!

According to the Hollywood Reporter (via), Tom Hank's is in talks to produce a 6 Season Series of American Gods for HBO! Wooooo! Wikipedia describes American Gods as "a blend ofAmericana, fantasy, and various strands of ancient and modern mythology, all centring on a mysterious and taciturn protagonist, Shadow." Do gods exist if no one believes in them? What if the forgotten Gods have to get jobs like the rest of us?

Who knows if it'll actually go into production, but if Game of Thrones can do it, so can American Gods!
And if you didn't know, I'm a HUGE fan of Neil Gaiman!
(please note the significance of posting this on a Wednesday! )
Thanks for sharing the news Andy!


  1. and Game of Thrones gets an odd shoutout by kottke this week too - shrimp and persimmon soup! I really like cooking, but I'm glad someone else is doing this...

  2. would love to respond, but Ernie is on the keyboard again!

  3. Dude! Thanks for the fun link Charcuterista!
    best link of the day from game of thrones food blog:

    The Queen took a flagon of sweet plum wine from a passing servant girl and filled Sansa's cup. "Drink," she commanded coldly. "Perhaps it will give you courage to deal with truth for a change."

    Oooch. That queen is a BIATCH!

    M: Give Ernie some sweet plum wine... I'm pretty sure he wont' be able to hop up onto the keyboard let alone walk in a straight line!
