I stayed up late to finish watching it - finally! And I just loved it! I went through and re-read the comments posted here, and no one else seemed to like it very much. But it was exactly what I was hoping for, and more. It was great to see Mark Gatiss as a nazi, and Jonathan Aris as a really mean angel - Mycroft and Anderson from Sherlock. Then when you add Benedict, director Douglas MacKinnon and composer David Arnold, you have a pretty nice Sherlock reunion.
People who only watched some of the episodes really missed out because different characters are introduced as the story went on. I loved the comic relief throughout, and the wacky costume and hairstyle changes as we follow the angel and demon through history. I laughed out loud many times - the background information about angels/demons dancing was hysterical!
It occurred to me as I was watching it that the quirkiness and style reminded me of the “Lemony Snicket” Netflix series - which I also loved. Although Good Omens is definitely not for children!
I recently bought the DVD and love every minute of it bar one - the Crucifixion scene. No, I am not a believer, but I do think that this was bad taste. Other than that, the interaction between Crowley and Aziraphale is often hilarious, and the hip swaying saunter of Crowley is classic. The young lad playing Adam could have been better, still, you cant have everything.😁
