AG Table Read

Everyone is in Toronto to begin filming and Bryan Fuller, Craig Cegielski, and FremantleMedia NA have graced us on twitter with some BTS pics of their Table Read.

Anyone else as excited for what's to come?

Definitely, though as someone who've read the book several times, I might have a pretty good idea what will happen. I assume that they will follow closely the book for the, maybe the entire first season or so. Although I wonder how much do they rely on Neil or to what extent can he influence the production?!?

It sounds like Neil is closely involved from the set visits and tweets showing up, which makes me happy. IIRC, I think the plan is for a five-season run and Neil is writing more of the story for the following seasons. It'll be interesting how they incorporate everything and how much of the book they cover in the first season.

They're filming the Chicago scenes today and tomorrow in Guelph.

If Neil is there, then I'm even more excited!

After the100 I'm afraid to get my hopes up, but surely this disaster won't be repeated in the American Gods... :S :/

It'd be impossible. Bryan Fuller is much more experienced, much more talented, and much more professional. I've been following him since Wonderfalls days. Have you ever seen Hannibal?

Nope, but have heard great things about it. It's on my, "to watch" list.

BTW have you seen the newest GoT. In any case, without spoiling too much with Jon Snow, I was like "Yeees! That's how you should do fan-baiting!" As, if I understood correctly that should constitute or fall under that definition. Regardless, it was brilliant, that should be a prime example of how to do positive/sensitive/thoughtful/creative baiting. So if JR still has the willingness to learn, take that, not the "let's kill a couple of somewhat or really important characters each episode"...

But back to AG, I assume that the100 is a one of kind, and is in the worst-show-ever category, therefore it is almost impossible for AG to become anything like that.

I'm not really into that style of fantasy (had to force myself to watch all three LotR and still haven't finished the Hobbit series) so I stopped watching GoT sometime in the middle/end of Season Three (can't even remember if I finished out the season, that's how unremarkable the story was to me). I also never liked Jon Snow that much (I didn't even realize he and Robb Stark weren't the same person until the second season). But good for him! He's still alive. Another white man saved from death. Surprise, surprise.

Definitely watch Hannibal before AG airs! It'll give you a feel for Bryan Fuller's brand of surrealism and you'll start screaming with excitement when you realize how perfect this pairing between him and Neil Gaiman is. They're like a freaking OTP.

I'll for sure get back to you, once I've watched some episodes from Hannibal. After all this praise, I'll sit down with quite high expectations. Hopefully I'm the right audience or even if not, at least I hope I get a sense of his style and to see if indeed they are OTP. :P :D

It's not even television; it's art and a masterpiece at that. After watching each episode, you feel like you're waking up from a dream. :)

Okay, I'm sold. ^^
