The television adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s novel, American Gods, has received positive comments from TV critics and audiences for its storyline and star cast.

However, the show is being criticized for its sex scenes. With the new episode just days away, analysts have started saying that the show is not suitable for teenagers due to its sex scenes. Abraham Riesman from New York Times states that parents should not allow their children to watch “American Gods” as the series can ruin growing minds.

The show being criticized

Matt Brennan from Paste Magazine took it to Twitter this morning to share his thoughts about the show.

He states that “American Gods” has the hottest scenes he ever saw on the small screen, and it’s not a good fit for high school students. The Huffington Post reports that the scenes that took place between Omid Abtahi’s Salim and Mousa Kraish are disgusting. Kraish from Out magazine said that the story is incredible, but the sex scenes make no sense.

They are very intense and intimate, and should be removed from the series. Speaking about the sex scenes in an interview with Vice, Neil Gaiman said that those are necessary for the show, and there’s nothing to worry about. “American Gods” is currently available on Amazon Prime.

The series is created for the premium cable network Starz, with Fuller and Green serving as showrunners. “American Gods” focuses on a prisoner, Shadow Moon, who is given an unexpected early release from the jail after the death of his wife, Laura.

However, he acquired the rights to the book for $50 million and officially began production in 2015. Later on, it was revealed that he had sold the series rights to Starz, and expressed his hope to develop a brand new series for HBO.
