Good Omens: Miniseries (2019)

Good Omens

Critics Consensus

A smörgåsbord of heavenly imagery and irreverent hilarity, Good Omens works thanks to 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.

David Tennant and Michael Sheen bounce off each other with an energy that makes for intoxicating viewing.

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.

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

Jon Hamm, 48, soars as the angel Gabriel (a total jerk).

Jun 19, 2019 | Full Review…

A concise and direct production, with very intelligent but very accessible humor. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jun 17, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

A consistently entertaining adaptation that's worth seeing for Sheen and Tennant's terrific comic double-act alone.

Jun 14, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Good Omens is doing its best work precisely because it has a defined beginning, middle, and end, and zero plans or interest in extending to a Season 2, no matter how large a hit it might be.

    Hilarity personified! And I like how true it stays to the book. Including the witty conversations and funny incidences.
  • 3d ago
    I can't believe what passes as good television these days. Yes great cast, Yes great book, but such poor direction... The jokes all fall flat and the pacing is monstrously bad.
