Seconded. Some of the images in American Gods were beautiful, and it was
full of the mythical-America stuff that I watch fifties American movies
for, but the whole thing was far too dark and somehow sordid. (Also
spoiled, for me, by the revelation at the end [spoiler]

wasn't a side I'd have thought of as 'good'. The only really good guys
in it were minor characters, notably Sam and her sister.
