Good Omens
« on: October 08, 2018, 09:14:10 PM »
Based on the brilliant work by Pratchett and Gaiman, with David Tennant starring. Don't think this needs much more of an introduction...

I wouldn't call myself a big fan of Gaiman, but anything with Tennant in it has my interest.
if the flow checks out and your rhymes are dope enough then the police start unholstering their guns

The book is indeed brilliant, so the series has the potential to be really good if done right.

Ironically I never read the book. For someone who's a big fan of him (loved Neverwhere, American Gods, Anansi Boys, Coraline, Stardust, Cemetery Stories etc...) how big of an omission is to have not read The Good Omens? (I have to decide if to just watch the series or to read the book beforehand)
I use my sig to pimp some bands from Italy! Check out Elvenking (Power / Folk metal), Folkstone (Rock / Medieval metal), Arcana Opera (Gothic/Noir/Heavy metal) and the beautiful voice of Elisa!

I've only read American Gods by Gaiman, and while it's really good I think Good Omens is better. But then it's a collaboration with Terry Pratchett who is one of my absolutely favorite writers.

American Gods and Good Omens have almost nothing in common. :lol

Gaiman and Pratchett are two of my favourite authors, and Good Omens is tremendous fun, so I've been really excited about this since it was first announced!

I'd say the book is a really nice mix of Gaiman's quirky type of modern fantasy and Pratchet's excellent satirical humor. It's an excellent read.

While I'm excited about Tennant, I'm very curious to see how they handle the four horsemen. I remember that being my favorite part of the novel. I think I'm gonna have to give that one a re-read before the series starts to be honest, it's been a good two decades at least. Fuck I'm old.
