This is a (mostly) spoiler-free review of Amazon’s Good Omens Miniseries. You can binge the entire series on Friday, May 31.
It probably goes without saying, but the end of the world is a pretty big deal… Some might even call it a biblical event. So when you need that particular story done right, why not look to iconic author and comic book creator Neil Gaiman (Sandman, American Gods) for guidance? Amazon’s apocalyptic-sized bet on Gaiman’s ability to successfully adapt the novel he and Terry Pratchett co-authored back in 1990 has paid off. Good Omens, while not without its flaws, is a charming, witty, and gorgeously directed journey through heaven and hell that makes for a devilishly-good binge when all six episodes drop on May 31.
