About every year I find a new serie to watch! Series seem to get better and better and the best series are not only made by Networks like HBO who we have to thank for Game of Thrones and FOX that produces the Walking Dead (and Fear the Walking Dead). In addition we now see that Netflix under the Starz Label produces great series like Spartacus and Black Sails.
New series by Netflix – Starz – American Gods
And now we have American Gods! Check the trailer if you have not become acquainted with it yet. The leading character goes by the name of Shadow Moon (no…really…I kid you not). He has the worst kind of wife….one that cheats on him with his friend and won’t stay dead either. He is by the way also the guy that plays “Lincoln the Grounder” in the series The 100.
What has American Gods got to do with Checkers?
In this first season (episodes 3 & 4) a good old checker board makes it’s entry. Checker used is also called Draughts, but just read the article to get up to speed: Bar games that we used to play: Checkers or Draughts. Pretty cool to see that even the gods like to play! Vintage Man Stuff Style that is: Smoking and in an old shirt!
