About This Quiz

Neil Gaiman's "American Gods" is unlike anything else you're going to see on TV. Steeped in mythology from all around the world and also deeply rooted in the here and now with its social and political messages, it's somehow both magical and relevant. It's also moving, exciting, and, at times, even terrifying. Plus, like any great show, it makes you feel. It even made you feel for Mad Sweeney, and if a show can make you feel for a character like that, then you know it's some solid stuff. 

A lot of what happens on "American Gods" deals with choices, both good and bad. Good people sometimes have to do bad things, the same as in real life. It's a morality play as well as a fantastic tale of beings unlike any you've encountered in real life. Sometimes they're simple matters of little lies; sometimes they're bigger, like affairs. Sometimes they're life and death. We're not going to ask you to make a life and death choice, but we can ask you some morality questions to see just which character you're most like. Are you pulling strings like Mr. Wednesday? Over your head like Shadow Moon? Moving in shadows like Anansi? Trying to hold on to what you know like Bilquis? Take the quiz and see!
