Ok Game of thrones season 1 finished up a few weeks ago and it was amazing. Now I here that American Gods will be made into a HBO TV show. For those of you who don't know American Gods was an awesome novel by Neil Gaiman. Now I know the rule in this group is never discuss the TV Show, but I think Dresden was hurt by syfy. Had HBO got a hold of it or Starz or Showtime Think it could have been a hit.

What do you people think about the TV adaptations and Dresden on a prime channel?

Cjpines | 90 comments I think Game was a very good series, I enjoyed it more than I enjoyed the book and that made me realize something...I can accept stupid characters better in TV/movies than I can in books. One of my rubs with Songs of Ice and Fire is how foolish a supposedly learned or worldly character acts.

I look forward to American Gods...if you haven't read it it's a weird one but a good one.

As for The Series That Shall Not be Name, well I don't think they could have done worse. I'd love to see a credible job done some time.

Armand (armand-i) | 40 comments I was all set to love "American Gods" (because I'm such a fan of Gaiman's Sandman comics), but I got about 150 pages into American Gods and gave up. I never really connected with the main character (I think his name was "Shadow"?).
