I enjoyed it all. Plenty of good moments. Though not a perfect show that really hit me emotionally. It was still a joy. And Iím happy I binged it.

Glad to see the Douglas Adams link. At first I was like wtf in regards to the narration. Iíve watched that film 100 times and the BBC series once.

It is the internet after all. I have to admit having an American narrator took a bit of getting used to, but that sorted itself out by the end.

I think I've seen the commercial for this close to 100 times in the last couple days. I'm already annoyed with this show before even watching a single episode.

Where are you seeing the ad for it? On TV? On Youtube? On Prime Video?

On TV. Some of the stations here have a habit of showing the same commercials (or a few commercials for the same product) over and over. Although I don't think I've ever seen an Amazon Prime show being advertised nearly as much as this has in a short period of time.

Facebook has this annoying habit of throwing an ad into the middle of popular videos. Lately that ad is nothing but the Good Omens trailer.

I thought she looked a bit like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Really enjoyed the series. Been 16 years since I read the book so I had forgotten most of it aside from the beginning and the end. The series seemed to have more of a Gaiman feel whereas the book seemed like he had done most of the overall story with Pratchett doing the dialogue.

two episodes in and enjoying it so far. Never saw Mireille Enos look so good. Almost didn't recognize her with the makeup and such, used to seeing her more dressed down in the Killing or Hanna.

It's hilarious that 20,00 Christians are petitioning Netfix to stop showing Good Omens.

"Gaiman responded to the petition on Twitter, writing: “I love that they are going to write to Netflix to try and get #GoodOmens cancelled. Says it all really. This is so beautiful ... Promise me you won’t tell them?”"

I didn't read the book but considered this another bad adaptation in the style of The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. Some humor doesn't translate to the screen.

Wait, which adaptation of The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy? The TV series or the movie? Because the TV version was pretty good.

I liked the movie adaptation too, it wasn't the source material but it was still fun

I love the movie. Iíve watched it many times. I havenít read the book. I know people are very attached to it.

Listening to the commentary, I gathered it was very much Douglas Adamsí movie and he was giving input and ideas during early production (which was on and off for several years).

I loved the books but didn't like any of the other adaptations. Maybe it's sour grapes from never getting through one of the puzzles in the Infocom game.

The movie adaptation is of The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, which had the original radio series, a book adaptation of the radio series, a TV adaptation of the radio series, sequel books, radio adaptations of the sequel books, and a movie adaptation of, probably, the first book, with some new material thrown in.
