Quote:
BBC Studios, the BBC’s main TV production arm, will be the production partner for a major new Amazon and BBC commissioned series Good Omens, a six-part comedy series based on the acclaimed novel of the same name by Neil Gaiman (American Gods) and Terry Pratchett (Colour Of Magic).
Set to broadcast in 2018 on Amazon Prime Video and the BBC, Good Omens is written by Gaiman, who will also serve as Showrunner. BBC Studios is co-producing the series with Narrativia and The Blank Corporation and in association with BBC Worldwide, who have licensed the global SVOD rights to Amazon. Good Omens will broadcast on the BBC in the UK, following its premiere on Prime Video.

Neil Gaiman, writer, says: “Almost 30 years ago Terry Pratchett and I wrote the funniest novel we could about the end of the world, populated with angels and demons, not to mention an 11 year-old Antichrist, witch-finders and the four horsepeople of the Apocalypse. It became many people's favourite book. Three decades later, it's going to make it to the screen. I can't think of anyone we'd rather make it with than BBC Studios, and I just wish Sir Terry was alive to see it.”

That sounds exciting! Will that include Amazon Prime here in the US? If so, I need to keep my subscription up....

I'm sure it will be on Prime US.

Yayy! Looking forward to discussing it! :D

Q: should I re-read the book now or not?

Why do I have to work today? :(

Quote:
Most of the members of the convent were old-fashioned Satanists, like their parents and grandparents before them. They'd been brought up to it and weren't, when you got right down to it, particularly evil. Human beings mostly aren't. They just get carried away by new ideas, like dressing up in jackboots and shooting people, or dressing up in white sheets and lynching people, or dressing up in tie-dye jeans and playing guitars at people. Offer people a new creed with a costume and their hearts and minds will follow.


He didn't mention a red hat with a short quote, but we can't have everything.

2 episodes in. It is not quite as satisfying as I had hoped. It needed more time to do justice to Carmine, and I'm disappointed they didn't do the knitting and orgasms flashback for Mary.

Still. Aziraphael and Crowley are spot on.

3 episodes in. The angels really are spot on. I don’t like “the narrator” approach though.

I'm one episode in and wondering what the big deal is. It wasn't that impressive.
