Episode 101: “The Bone Orchard”

Neil Gaiman’s 2001 best-selling fantasy novel that baked myth, belief, and luck with wild streaks of action, violence, and humor has been served up as a new television series by noted small screen creator Bryan Fuller (Hannibal, Pushing Daisies, Wonderfall, and the upcoming Star Trek: Discovery) for Starz. Gods deals with what happens when immigrants to America’s shores bring the deities of their homelands along with themit may be keeping touch with tradition and a vestigial part of themselves, but also the source of trouble, too. Especially when these beings include the likes of the pleasure-addict raconteur Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane), the two-fisted leprechaun Mad Sweeney (Pablo Schreiber), the unpredictable Mr. Nancy (Orlando Jones), and the new god, Media (Gillian Anderson). They stomp around in the lives of mortals, stirring up the most dust for the unfortunate Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle). McShane and series co-creator Fuller, among others, will participate in a Q&A after the screening.
