Albuquerque Journal - Parade - - Personality -

—Joey L., East Lans­ing, Mich. A: The adap­ta­tion of Neil Gaiman’s 2001 novel, pre­mier­ing tonight as a new se­ries on Starz, will stay some­what true to how it was writ­ten, a para­ble of var­i­ous deities and mytho­log­i­cal crea­tures liv­ing among con­tem­po­rary hu­mans. But one of the changes will be the ex­pan­sion and ad­di­tion of fe­male roles, in­clud­ing for­mer X-Files star Gil­lian An­der­son, 48.
