I get so sick and tired of constantly hearing this as a criticism: “but that’s not in the books"
I get it. You loved the books. You still have them. But this is a tv show, even if it is based on the book(s), it’s a completely different ballgame. Common sense dictates that there’s gonna be some changes made. Depending on who you ask, some of those changes will be good and some won’t. Either way, it doesn’t have to follow the books to a tee for it to still be as good or entertaining.
Can we talk about American Gods? We really have a dark-skin black woman playing a Biblical Queen and a Love Goddess. We have Black People portraying Egyptian Gods. The lead of the show is black. They have West African Gods being portrayed on mainstream media. Seeing black people’s mythology and history represented on screen by black actors is a big thing. People aren’t even aware of nor regard the several figures in Abrahamic religions being African. .
