Tonight: “American Gods” Premieres On Starz (4/30/2017)

Fans of the novel “American Gods” by Neil Gaiman will be excited that the show makes its season premiere this evening on Starz. I’ve shared some posts about it before with a trailer and the character posters for those interested. This one crept up on me and I am unfamiliar with the source material so I am not sure I am catching it straight away. Here is the show poster along with some reminder of cast.

Ricky Whittle as Shadow Moon
Emily Browning as Laura Moon
Crispin Glover as Mr. World
Bruce Langley as Technical Boy
Yetide Badaki as Bilquis
Pablo Schreiber as Mad Sweeney

PiercingMetal Thoughts:
I’ve already stated that I am not sure about catching this one right away but the DVR allows for easy binge watching. Have any of you readers sunk your teeth into the original novel at all? I know there is a comic book hitting the stands as well and perhaps I will add that to our narratives as well in the comic book review area. Tell me below if you will be watching. I’d like to hear.

Behold A Bevy Of “American Gods” Character Posters

I recently shared the trailer for the upcoming Starz show “American Gods” and just the other day they released a good number of character posters from the series. Since I love sharing those kind of things with you all, I figured let’s get right on down to it. I’ll start with the main show poster first for good measure.

Now let’s get on down to the nitty gritty of these out of this world characters. Boy, Neil Gaiman sure has created some interesting players for this one. Generally, I will line out the cast in a section at the close but with these posters I embedded who was who right on the image piece. Enjoy.

Starz Delivers The “American Gods” Trailer

So I’m going to admit to you all that I am not really on point about this one. I never read “American Gods” even though its by the great Neil Gaiman but I did know about the upcoming series thanks to the fine folks at Dark Horse who we see every year at Toy Fair. It seemed that not only would they be publishing a limited series comic book but also a line of products related to the upcoming live action drama which will air on the Starz network. Check out the first trailer, or what I believe to be the first trailer šŸ˜€

The television series was developed by Bryan Fuller and Michael Green for the premium cable network Starz. Fuller and Green are the showrunners for the series.

Exploring Toy Fair 2017: Dark Horse

As we’ve noted a couple of days ago, the PiercingMetal website was once again exploring the American International Toy Fair, or very simply Toy Fair. Now it’s time to begin loading in all of the amazing companies that we stopped by to see and share their offerings. Let’s begin the journey with the folks at Dark Horse who over the years have impressed us time and time again. Here we go.

While I am not the biggest gamer, I have heard about the “Witcher” game and it looks great. These exquisite statues are representative of their license for it. I need to start playing the game and perhaps even becoming a statue collector since I like some of these.
