According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner.

So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except Aziraphale, a somewhat fussy angel, and Crowley, a fast-living demon - both of whom have lived among Earth's mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle - are not actually looking forward to the coming war. And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist...

Re: Good Omens [Comedy, Drama, Fantasy]

Quite excellent, but the ending felt a bit rushed.

Re: Good Omens [Comedy, Drama, Fantasy]

Yeah, I was slightly disappointed. It started out great but then went downhill a bit. Don't get me wrong, I will still continue watching it, I guess I just expected too much. smile

The book is quite good

DRM "manages access" in the same way that Prison "manages freedom".

Re: Good Omens [Comedy, Drama, Fantasy]

I read the book years ago, was great. Haven't finished watching the series yet though.

Re: Good Omens [Comedy, Drama, Fantasy]

i loved it, good adaptation.

Re: Good Omens [Comedy, Drama, Fantasy]

Never read the book, had not heard anything about it, only watched it because people were talking about it in this forum.

Loved it!

The final scene was very... heartwarming. Been a while since I last felt that.

Re: Good Omens [Comedy, Drama, Fantasy]

Based on the first episode, this is not for me.

...where did I put that rat's ass I could give?

Daemons are benevolent or benign nature spirits, beings of the same nature as both mortals and gods, similar to ghosts, chthonic heroes, spirit guides, forces of nature or the gods themselves.

"I can't watch Good Omens because of my religion."

Okay, cool.

Haha, F off...

I'm amazed that any major religion besides small cults for totally brainwashed people managed to survive to this century.

You think the major religions haven't brainwashed their worshippers to some degree?

Anyway, that's beside the point. I would never have heard about this show if it weren't for the petition....thanks guys!

Re: Good Omens [Comedy, Drama, Fantasy]

doesn’t happen often that a visual interpretation is as good as the written word...

i'm going to eat your brains and gain your memories...

Re: Good Omens [Comedy, Drama, Fantasy]

ha. this was my favorite book. but i like that people are controverting over it.

Re: Good Omens [Comedy, Drama, Fantasy]

I haven't been keeping up on this, but I really hope Netflix pokes some fun at them.

Netflix: We tried really, really hard to get Good Omens taken off the air, but Amazon said no.
