The show that everyone’s been talking about is here. Sci-fi series American Gods (see p32) is meant to be as big a hit and conversation starter as Game Of Thrones. I’ve had a glimpse of the first episode and I can tell you that it’s bloody, captivating and Ian McShane as Mr Wednesday had me spellbound with every expression on his wrinkled face. Please take note: this show is going to impact the Monday M-Net lineup. It will be broadcast at 22:00 as it is definitely not a kid-friendly show, but since M-Net usually runs in half-hour intervals, some shows are bound to change to accommodate the hourly timeslot. M-Net however couldn’t tell us what 30-min show would be squeezed in before or after American Gods. Please bear with us if what you see on Monday on your screen isn’t what is written in our schedules and Pick Of The Day listing. To help you get to know all the key players, read our easy guide on p32. Brace yourself!
American Gods is bloody but good.
