Media be praised, American Gods has finally premiered its’ silver screen adaptation. April 30th marked the first episode of the STARZ series, helmed by the keen-eyed Bryan Fuller and Michael Green, in a glorious blaze worthy of the ecstatic worship fans have been ready to bestow upon the show.

American Gods revolves around Shadow Moon, an ex-con whose release from prison is marred by the tragedy of his wife’s sudden death. Newly free and left with nothing to look forward to, Shadow ‘happens’ to cross paths with the mysterious conman Mr. Wednesday, who ‘happens’ to be in search of a bodyguard and yes-man. Shadow probably just wants to work a nice job and keep practicing his coin tricks. The universe rarely works out that way though, and the relatively indifferent skeptic Shadow signs on only to be almost immediately thrust into the squabble between the old and new gods.

The world of American Gods requires the introduction of a multitude of characters, pantheons, and rules. Viewers are thrown, much like Shadow, headfirst into a hidden world of gods, introduced to the drug of belief, and asked to adjust to a worldly cast of such beings without blinking an eye. It’s a lot to process, and Fuller & Green set a relentless but manageable pace. “The Bone Orchard” firmly establishes the tone, aesthetic, and overarching mood of the series, melancholic and mysterious, while “The Secret of Spoons” delves unflinchingly into the mythos of the world.

Misha Collins, widely known for his role as Castiel on CW’s Supernatural, is back to the activist grind with a new fundraising venture. This time, it’s a gofundme page that seeks to raise enough money to purchase the private data of the Congress members who have voted to sell our personal data to the highest bidders. Of course, it’s not exactly as simple as selecting which guy’s browsing history you want to see and paying a fee to get a glimpse at it, as many, many others have pointed out, but it’s a gesture nonetheless designed to keep people–namely, the legions of fans invested in the Misha Collins persona–informed, interested, and engaged. Far more law-savvy folk than I have breached the tangled mess of lies and truths concerning the Obama-era law that was recently overturned, and I suggest doing your own research and making sure you know everything you possibly want to know in order to make any decisions regarding donating to campaigns like these. Though unlikely to yield results that many people are hoping, this campaign does serve to keep people active and will make for a hefty donation. Donate. Don’t donate. I can only weigh in on one aspect, and it’s that Misha Collins does good with every action he takes.
