The Dominant Paradigm is a weekly podcast where Geeks of Doom Podcast hosts Dwayne D, Andrew Sorcini, and Tosin Onafowokan discuss STARZ’s TV series American Gods, the works that inspired it, and the larger questions about the lenses in which we see our world, AKA, the paradigms.
Episode 2.1 “House On The Rock”: Following the epic showdown at Easter’s party, Mr. Wednesday continues his quest to pitch the case for war to the Old Gods; Mr. World plans revenge; Technical Boy goes on the hunt for Media.
The panel for American Gods, the Starz television series based on the award-winning 2001 novel by Neil Gaiman, was one of the most anticipated events at this year’s New York Comic-Con. Season 2 recently wrapped, so the creators and stars were present to talk about what we can expect in the next season and more. At the convention center, we got to participate in the press roundtable interviews for the series, and this time around, we got to sit down with Crispin Glover (Mr. World), Bruce Langley (Technical Boy), and Yetide Badaki (Bilquis).

It’s definitely a story better left for television, where it could be told over many episodes and possibly even seasons, and it almost happened in 2011 when HBO snagged the rights. But the cable giant that gave us the masterpiece that is Game Of Thrones, a worthy adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s best-selling fantasy series, just couldn’t get an American Gods series off the ground. A few years later, Fremantle Media bought the rights with Starz jumping on to develop a show with Bryan Fuller (Hannibal) and Michael Green (Logan) as showrunners. Now that sounded promising! Even more promising “” Gaiman himself was on board as an executive producer. What happened next was the creation of one of the best shows on television.
