There's a Dr. Fist here to see you.


I always pictured him as kind of a Vin Diesel guy, but with darker skin. I like Ricky Whittle a lot more, he killed it in this first episode.

Somehow Orlando Jones, Peter Stormare, and Cloris Leachman were even more awesome than anticipated. Also loved Shadow's Strange Fruit line.

If I had known the subject of this week's episode, I would have said I didn't care about it. So of course I wound up finding it the most engrossing ep so far. Also nice to get some more time with Ibis and Jaquel.

Yeah nah, Gaiman. I liked this episode but I really don't like or sympathize with Laura just because I saw more of her life.

I didn't really care much for Laura in the books, but I don't disagree with Gaiman here. When we first hear about Laura, it's about how she cheated on Shadow, but then this episode makes that less of a betrayal of him (though it is that) and more of a symptom of a bigger problem that preceded him. Same with the robbery gone wrong. It's infuriating when she does it because we know how it's going to end up, but she's not in a good place and their lives aren't free from the gods' interference, anyway. I didn't find her a great person in this episode, but I did find her relatable and more likable. Or less unlikable. Whichever.

I do disagree with Gaiman's statement that she doesn't need to atone for anything, however.

It is odd, but Fuller and Green have talked about the book being a bit of a sausage party before and seem to be trying to adjust that.

Interesting variation on the weekly dick this episode.
