    Agreed. The relationship between Shadow and Wednesday is the thrust of the plot, and yet it's hard to give a shit about either. Shadow just swings between moody and angry, whilst Wednesday jabbers on...

    You're not going to like 7 then. I liked 4 and 7, though 4 more so. It's just TV about magic, so it doesn't really need to go anywhere fast.
