‘American Gods’ Clip: Anansi Comes To America

American Gods Orlando Jones as Mr. Nancy /Anansi

On April 30th, when STARZ aired the American Gods premiere, they opened not with leading stars Shadow (Ricky Whittle) and Wednesday (Ian McShane). Rather, the pilot episode began with a period tale about Norsemen, adventuring abroad from Iceland, to the Western Hemisphere. It was about their utter failure at establishing themselves on these “New World” shores.

What I’m getting at is that American Gods is as much about fantastical super-powered beings as it is about the mechanism by which they arrived here: migration, voluntary or otherwise. Tuesday, STARZ released a clip of Sunday’s new episode, “The Secret of Spoons,” in which showrunners Bryan Fuller and Michael Green use their platform to take a true-to-life look at the migration stories of America, warts and all.

Below we see the West African trickster god, Anansi (Orlando Jones), in both spider and human form, talking to enslaved Africans in the hold of a 17th century ship as they make the trans-Atlantic voyage to their new world: one bereft of freedom.

‘American Gods’: A TV Series That Fans Of The Book Will Love

American Gods poster banner premiere date

[At SXSW 2017, we screened the first episode of the upcoming Starz series American Gods, based on the Neil Gaiman novel. Here are our thoughts.]

SXSW 2017 – Shadow Moon is a man alone. His life is returned, but his life is gone. He’s got a plan all set up, but no one’s available to help him with it.

Lucky for Shadow, it’s Wednesday.

It’s no spoiler to tell you that about the protagonist of a 16-year-old book. What I can’t tell you, however, is why. American Gods Episode 1.1 “The Bone Orchard,” the pilot of the new STARZ show based on Neil Gaiman’s novel of the same name, is full of characters that are suffering from difficult-to-explain juxtapositions. Rather that frustrate viewers, however, that fact about the show is sure to intrigue; to provide an alluring mist not too different than the white curls of smoke wafting from the white buffalo’s eyes in the series’ trailer before the beast telepathically utters: Believe.

Orlando Jones

At New York Comic-Con Saturday night in the Empire Room, Orlando Jones had the stage all to himself, but being the down-to-earth funnyman he is, joked it was too NYPD, and came down to take questions from the audience, up close and personal. Jones, who played Captain Frank Irving, on FOX’s Sleepy Hollow, answered questions on a wide range of subjects including future projects, his love for Lando, and 7-Up.
