Spoilers in thread! Good Omens on Amazon TV?

Recommended Posts

Dev

Who's seen it since its release?  I'd love to know what you thought of it.

 

I've been nagging my mother to read the book every time it comes up for, oh, gotta be almost 20 years now.  She never did.  She saw the ads for it on Amazon and suggested we watch it together, so I had the pleasure of seeing her experience all the subtle humor for the first time.  It's so true to the book - I can only think of one element that didn't make it into the screen adaptation, aside from narrative bits - that she fully understands now why I kept pushing her to read it.

 

What I didn't know before the first episode was that Gaiman wrote and produced the adaptation.  I had been terrified it would be a letdown like so many screen versions are, but with him at the helm all my worry went away.

 

Favorite parts?  Things you thought could have been better?

 

(Please tell me I'm not the only geek for this story here. :P)

I am a fan of Neil Gaiman but I never read the book for this before watching it.  Me and my partner loved it though!  For me my favorite part was the very end where they set it up for more.....until I found out there was only one book :(. 

 

The horseman didn't seem to fit though, and their role seemed to be a bit anti-climatic.

The horsemen was the one thing that had some significant cuts in the translation from book to screen.  It's much, much more entertaining in the book.

I live for Good Omens. The show is so impressive. I like it better than the book! David Tennant and Michael Sheen are perfect as Crowley and Aziraphale. The entire cast is phenomenal. I love that the series explores the relationship between Aziraphale and Crowley through a very romantic lens. Genderless angels! Gay pining! Non-binary characters! Nanny Ashtoreth! So much good LGBT material in this show. And none of it is making fun of people at all; it’s just part of the show. So good.

😲I love "Good Omens" the show. The book is very different, but worth the read. I love the character dynamics and the endearing relationship between Crowley and Aziraphale.

      Hi Zoey,  You look great!  I wanted to say that there is an infinite spectrum and it is perfectly valid to present to the world as female but not ever go for SRS.  It is whatever works for you and I'm sorry for first doctor was so binary. --Grace.

      Welcome Zoey. Glad your here. It’s a pleasure to meet you. Like yourself, I took a long break between my first journey living part time as a women and today. Back when I started going out to clubs and bars in the mid-80s, I didn’t feel safe unless I was with a few g/f‘s and we always stayed in gay/lesbian safe areas of Seattle. Today, here in the Seattle metro area where I reside, it seems very safe and accepting everywhere. This new generation does seem to be much more understanding.   I shop at costco a lot and they require masks now. I have to forego wearing lipstick until after I shop there. It’s usually the first stop on my errands list just so I don’t worry about getting lipstick everywhere.   Zoey, you look great in both photos. I can see a little weight loss in your 2019 pic especially in your cheeks and it’s a nice change. Your makeup is really done well too.   Well, thank you for sharing your journey and timeline with us. I hope to read more of your continuing journey as it unfolds.   Warmest Regards, Susan R🌷

      That sounds like a win for you both. I’m very happy for you @MikaReich! Hopefully, it’s the start of something great.   Susan R🌷

      Hi Tori, Best of luck with HRT this time around. Hope all goes smoothly for you. Z.

      I’ve been listening to his new stuff nonstop since you mentioned his solo stuff @Sally Stone. Some of it is perfect for exercising and going on my long walks. My newest personal favorite is now...Personal Shopper.   Like the beat but the lyrics are very timely and sort of funny. Take a look...   PERSONAL SHOPPER (lyrics) Have now, have now, pay in another life Kickstart the future, accept this loan Fill in the form, you're pre-qualified You're now the sum of what you own Buy now, buy now, have a better life Close out transactions without remorse Apply for credit, it's your given right Buy it all then buy some more Buy for comfort, buy for kicks Buy and buy until it makes you sick Buy for England, buy it all Buy online and in the shopping mall Sell it on then buy it back Buy the -crap- you never knew you lacked Buy the update to compete Buy the things that make your life complete Consumer of life, hold my hand, extend your rights It's the power to purchase to excess That sets you apart and can give you the ultimate high Abuser of our time, if there's something that you want You…

      🤗Hurray for a Happy Successful Night! May you both enjoy further happiness together.

      I think one of the greeting card companies has a website where you can compose your own, or where you can download a mini program that will do it.  It uses stock formats for design, bu allows you to put your own wording on them.  Some friends where one spouse and one child are Trans do something like that.

      Patti, I love Alan Parsons!  I Robot album is my fav.  Did you know that he engineered Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon album?  I just learned that a few years ago.   Prog Rock is probably my favorite genre.  I grew up on Pink Floyd, Yes, and early Genesis (before they got "pop-py).  PT is new to me.  I watched the Steven Wilson video you posted; that's good stuff!!  Will have to check out PT.  Thanks for sharing that.   I've gotten heavily into World Music in the past few years thanks to an Azam Ali/Niyez concert I attended.  I guess it's classed as electronica but the effect is similar to Prog for me.   I watched that show for several years.  Those are pretty good guys up there.  Alaska State Troopers used to be fun, too.  I enjoy the insight into the culture of those remote places.
