Well about blinkin’ time. Though I’ve been away from the blog working on some interesting stuff, I just had to share this news. If you haven’t read American Gods yet then you really should. It’s not only great that TV broadcast is going to bring more people to Neil Gaiman’s book but the project is being managed by HBO and so there’ll be none of the limitations imposed by the no-budget-spent-it-all-on-executive-pay BBC (remember the ‘car chase’ in The Shadow Line that became three guys running after each other in a park?).
Elsewhere on The Guardian, Box Set Club review my favourite cop drama, The Shield. Kathy Sweeney (top name) does a great job of highlighting why this is a ‘must see’ among often-overlooked TV greats.
