TV Review: Good Omens

Image: Amazon Prime

Following on from listening to the fantastic interview Tim Ferriss did with Neil Gaiman, I recently binge watched Good Omens on Amazon Prime and was not disappointed. The book is written by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchet, and the TV series is a co-production between Amazon and the BBC. The show follows the story of Crowley and Aziraphale, a demon and an angel played brilliantly by David Tennant and Michael Sheen, as they navigate the arrival of the anti-Christ on earth and the planned armageddon to follow, having spent thousands of years previous on earth living the high life. Filled with witty narration from God which would be at home in the Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy, the story does a great job at showing that even the oldest of organisations, heaven and hell, are not safe from bureacratic hiearchies and employees that can cleverly game the system :-)
