29 Jun Good Omens
Terry Pratchett is probably my all-time favorite author, and his partnership here with Neil Gaiman is outstanding. Good Omens has everything, from prophecies, the four bikers of the apocalypse and their colleagues “Grievous Bodily Harm, Cruelty to Animals, Really Cool People, and Treading In Dogshit (formerly All Foreigners Especially The French, formerly Things Not Working Properly Even After You’ve Given Them A Good Thumping, never actually No Alcohol Lager, briefly Embarrassing Personal Problems, and finally People Covered in Fish)”, eco-friendly aliens, and a fantastic friendship between angel and demon.
Amazon and the BBC recently released a very good miniseries that’s pretty faithful to the book, written and created by Neil Gaiman – who also served as showrunner. It’s well worth watching, too.
