Season 2 started last night and I searched for a topic and couldn't find one within the last...however far back I scrolled.

Season 1 is on Hulu in its entirety for those who didn't get a chance to watch it.

Not feeling this season so much yet. Something feels off. It is good to finally see Saint of skillets (autocorrect fuck up but I like it too much to edit) interacting w/ the world

I'm really liking it. The show really strikes the perfect mix between horror, humor, drama and the supernatural, often within the same scene. And the way it's shot is just so unique, like the drug scene between Fiore and Cassidy. Any other show it would just be them sitting around. This is the opposite of a cookie cutter show.

The three leads also strike a nice balance of human characteristics. They're not heroes, they're not villains. Jesse's using the NRA group to hold off the Saint (even though he didn't really know how invulnerable the Saint is) was pretty cowardly. Yet when he told them to run, you seemed guilty. Cassidy tried to manipulate Fiore, but at the same time part of him did want Fiore to cheer up.

They also have such great chemistry. The sex scene between Tulip and Jesse in the first scene was such a great showcase of how they felt about each other.

I like this show much more than the comic.

Really? American Gods you think would have just had them sitting there? This scene felt like an almost direct lift off of what Rogen did in the This is the End drug scene.

"Any other show" is a bit of hyperbole. Read that as "most shows." Actually, thinking about it, it reminds me (in a good way) of something you'd expect from a Better Call Saul scene, or a Danny Boyle movie.

I haven't seen American Gods. I saw the first episode and couldn't get into it. I'll try later on during the summer.

I thought This Is the End completely unmemorable, and didn't like it at all, so I couldn't make a comparison.

The guy who wanted Root Beer after having his arm shot off yet was going to the vending machine like everything was normal asking everyone for quarters...just felt dumb to me. A gag I guess? IDFK

To me, that was dark humor and horror done just right.

I guess it was supposed to be shock. Kind of like Saving Private Ryan where the soldier is looking for his severed arm on the beach. He's just wandering around picking up arms and comparing them to his stump (or at least I think that's how it went.)

But yeah, it was a bit silly.

Same.
As mentioned, he was in total shock.
It being played for laughs was nice & sick.
