Good Omens
« on: June 12, 2019, 05:14:26 AM »
The first episode of Good Omens is quite well done. It's a comedy about the biblical apocalypse. Son of Satan, hellhounds, that sort of thing.

It's also in that sweet spot where I read the book, but it was long enough ago that I remember very little of it, other than basic plot points and that I enjoyed it. It's a collaboration between the late Terry Pratchett and Niel Gaiman.

It's on Amazon Prime (and therefore it's out everywhere if you don't have Prime), and all episodes are out, only 6 total. Pretty sure it's a one-and-done series too, since there was only one book.

Good cast. Many well-known actors. David Tennant plays the main demon and is suitably over the top with it.

I'll definitely watch the rest.

Got to get to the somewhat-similar American Gods season 2 as well, another Neil Gaiman adaptation. Season 1 was decent, though not amazing IMO.

It was really enjoyable to watch. It did leave hints for a second season.
