I tell ya what I'm curious about.....

I don't think it'll be a spoiler to tell that the "Gods" in American Gods get strength
from their human followers, and that "new" gods seem bent on completely erasing
the old order, and many gods appear in greater and lesser roles........

...but a certain Palestinian Jew, who frequently seems to manifest as a rather
fair-skinned/blonde European, and who has plenty of followers (at least in name),
is nowhere to be seen...  :dontknow:

HOly CrAP!  Did you watch the second Neil G clip?

Terry Jones is adapting Good Omens for a filmed presentation too!
(Granted, NG also notes that Terry Gilliam tried to adapt it and just couldn't make it work...)
