Good Omens: Miniseries (2019)


Miniseries
Good Omens

Critics Consensus

A smörgåsbord of heavenly imagery and irreverent hilarity, Good Omens works thanks to Michael Sheen and David Tennant's very-nearly-holy (or maybe unholy?) chemistry -- though, at only six episodes, it's a rare adaptation that may have benefitted from being a little less faithful to the good book.

If everything else feels decidedly extraneous, it's mostly worth it to see two such estimable actors having such a lovely doomsday.

It feels like being told you're having fun rather than being allowed to have it.

Together, it's like watching two musicians at the top of their game play a duet; they positively sing... The rest of it's not bad -- not world-ending, but not exactly heavenly, either.

May 30, 2019 | Full Review…

Such archness. Such ostentatious charm and so-called wit. It made me feel like I wanted to suck the sugar from my teeth.

May 30, 2019 | Full Review…

Good Omens continues to have its special effects moments. But there aren't enough of them to overcome the basic tedium afflicting it.

A cursory overview of the plot would suggest that the two decide to work together to defend humanity from divine caprice - but the performances make it clear that what each entity is truly fighting for is one another, and the bond they've forged.

If you're one of those people who find stories about the End Times stressful or upsetting, don't worry, Good Omens is neither. It's funny and charming and very human.

There's no denying it's a stupendous show.

Jan 16, 2020 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

While [David] Tennant and [Michael] Sheen are incredibly engaging, their chemistry gets lost in a story that doesn't make much sense.

Dec 2, 2019 | Rating: 2.0/5.0 | Full Review…

Good Omens' greatest achievement isn't its hilarious story of the end of the world.It's the recognition that we're all not that different, in the end.

Nov 25, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

The show's script is fresh, original, and will keep most viewers entertained throughout. However some of the side-characters' backstories are less than impressive, and take away from pace and rhythm of the otherwise well-crafted show.

Nov 25, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Much like existence, Good Omens is a messy, sometimes confusing experience whose highs make the whole enterprise worth it.

    Meh it passed the time. The book is far more entertaining. They have interjected far too much guff to pad out the story, so much that it obscures the brilliance of the original story.

    Absolutely amazing! The way the series shows this friendship between an angel and a demon is so perfect, i can't even express it with words. The charisma of the actors and the chemistry between all of them contributed to make the greatest Amazon Prime original serie.

    Making fun of religion is always welcome, though it's packed with some irritiating ecologism. The style is too weird. Also, the creators seem to be a bit too sure of how funny, wise, and cool the are.
  • Jun 17, 2020
    High quality BBC crap.
  • Jun 17, 2020
    Awesome production, and true to the vibe of the book, which is Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman in top form. Casting is excellent and David Tennant and Michael Sheen were perfect for the lead roles.
  • Jun 16, 2020
    I loved this show, it's funny, not to scary and the actors are superb!
  • May 30, 2020
    I quite enjoyed it and will miss the conversations between Aziraphale and Crowley (and just their whole relationship).
  • May 23, 2020
    I love these husbands 100/5
  • May 20, 2020
    Not as original as they make it out to be
  • May 11, 2020
    Fabulous. Just so much fun. Doesn't take itself to seriously, settle in and enjoy the crazy.
