Good Omens (Ama­zon/BBC Two)

RTÉ Guide - - Feature -

Late last year, I saw a few clips from this mam­moth six-part adap­ta­tion of the cult novel co-au­thored by Neil Gaiman and the late Terry Pratch­ett. It looked big, bizarre and be­witch­ing with David Ten­nant as a hip­ster de­mon and Michael Sheen as a pout­ing an­gel who have been in an un­likely bro­mance for the past 6,000 years. But with the apoc­a­lypse im­mi­nent that is set to fall apart, they plan to sab­o­tage the end of the world. The cast is epic and ec­cen­tric with Jon Hamm as the ar­changel Gabriel, Derek Ja­cobi as the voice of God and Frances McDor­mand as God her­self. Mi­randa Richard­son has a scene steal­ing turn as a psy­chic. It could be heaven or hell.
