In today’s episode of BrokeBot Mountain, Kari Simms, Phil Rood discuss the highly anticipated Starz TV Series, American Gods. Which is based off a Hugo and Nebula Award-winning novel by English author Neil Gaiman of the same name. But before that, they submit you to one of the worst movies chosen for this show, ever… S1m0ne. Honestly, what was Pacino thinking?
The central premise of the series is that Gods and mythological creatures exist because people believe in them (a type of thoughtform). Immigrants to the United States brought with them spirits and Gods. The power of these mythological beings has diminished as people’s beliefs waned. New Gods have arisen, reflecting America’s obsessions with media, celebrity, technology, and drugs, among other things.
