‘Good Omens’: Amazon Highlights European Ambitions With Its First Ever Glitzy World Premiere Of A TV Series In London’s Leicester Square

‘Good Omens’: Amazon Highlights European Ambitions With Its First Ever Glitzy World Premiere Of A TV Series In London’s Leicester Square
Amazon Studios showcased its first major entry into British television by making Good Omens one of the first TV series to receive a glitzy world premiere in Leicester Square – a feat usually reserved for big-budget superhero movies (or The Crown).

The A-list cast and crew of the supernatural drama, which is based on Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s book Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch, were present to discuss the making of the six-part series with Gaiman dedicating the evening to Pratchett, who died in 2015.

Michael Sheen, David Tennant, Jon Hamm, Miranda Richardson, Adria Arjona and Josie Lawrence were all part of a Q&A after the premiere of the first two episodes, but it was Neil Gaiman’s touching tribute to co-author Pratchett that kicked off proceedings.

Gaiman said, “Terry Pratchett asked me about five years ago, he wrote me a letter, he

TV Review: ‘Good Omens’

  • Variety
Like Starz’s “American Gods” before it, Amazon’s newest limited series attempts to adapt the philosophically lofty, theologically-infused work of British novelist Neil Gaiman. In his 1990 novel “Good Omens” (co-written with Terry Pratchett), an odd-couple angel and demon attempt to avert the apocalypse in order to continue enjoying their unusual partnership. Onscreen, this pairing — between a saintly being played by Michael Sheen and a fallen angel played by David Tennant, both seeking to save the world for their own reasons — is the best part of the new “Good Omens” limited series. But it’s not enough: This six-hour journey towards the end of time comes to feel grindingly slow by the end, more anticlimax than fight for Earth’s future.

We meet Sheen’s Aziraphale and Tennant’s Crowley at the very beginning of recorded myth, in the Garden of Eden. Their personalities shake out with crystalline clarity (fitting

Line of Duty Series 5 Episode 6 Review

Eammon Jacobs reviews the sixth episode of Line of Duty Series 5…

After the penultimate episode piled on the evidence that the stoic Superintendent Hastings was the leader of a corrupt network of Police officers. In the series finale, the situation we’ve thoroughly enjoyed time and time again has been turned back onto AC-12 as Hastings is interrogated for the majority of the 90 minute runtime. Kate dished out a perfect line to one of the over-zealous members of AC-3, and it worked a treat; “stop making a tit of yourself, and piss off”. The performances from McClure and Compston were fairly standard for their characters, but that one moment was a definite highlight. The finale had plenty to live up to with theories aplenty flying around the internet. Could Hastings really be ‘H’? Could anybody? Before we unpack the revelations, it’s time to praise what the episode did excellently.

Line of Duty Series 5 Episode 5 Review

Eammon Jacobs reviews the fifth episode of Line of Duty Series 5…

As the fifth series prepares for a feature length finale, all the evidence is pointing in one direction; Ted Hastings. It’s piling up so much in fact, that it’s too overwhelming – there’s no way he can be ‘H’. However, this episode keeps adding to the suspicions of AC-12 and the newly introduced AC-3. After using the faked IP address to impersonate H, Ted goes rogue for a meeting that he pre-arranged in front of everyone, it’s the perfect cover. While we finally get to see Hastings and the Ocg onscreen together, it never quite feels like a massive reveal, but instead just a stepping stone to something bigger.

It’s a shame that after the death of John Corbett, we don’t have the unpredictable firecracker that is Stephen Graham onscreen anymore to keep the series full of energy.

This ‘Good Omens’ Music Video Will Make Your Friday

Amazon Prime Video/ YouTube

A new music video to celebrate the upcoming release of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s Good Omens has been released online. Good Omens is just a few weeks away but this will take you into the weekend quite nicely, full of anticipation for it.

This unholy a cappella tribute was written to remember and celebrate the moment when The Chattering Order of St Beryl realised their true purpose, to switch the new born baby Antichrist with the baby of an American Ambassador. Pulled from the pages of Sir Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman’s novel-turned-series Good Omens, The Chattering Order of St. Beryl are an order of nuns dedicated to emulating Christian martyr St. Beryl of Krakow, and whose members are commanded to chatter, natter, and rabbit about every last little thing that comes into their heads for every second of every waking hour.

The ‘Good Omens’ trailer finds Michael Sheen and David Tennant ‘Under Pressure’ to stop End Times [Watch]
What do you do when Armageddon is days away and you’ve lost the Antichrist? Leave it to good and evil.

Amazon dropped the full-length trailer for Neil Gaiman‘s upcoming limited series “Good Omens” on Wednesday (watch above), giving us a closer look at Michael Sheen‘s finicky angel Aziraphale and David Tennant‘s carefree demon Crowley (and their questionable hair) as they team up to stop the apocalypse. As the trailer — which is backed by Queen and David Bowie‘s “Under Pressure” — reveals, the Antichrist is actually a blissfully unaware 11-year-old boy named Adam (Sam Tyler Buck) who’s gone missing.

“If we don’t find him, it’ll be the war to end everything,” Crowley says.

In Neil Gaiman’s new Amazon series Good Omens the end of the world is fast approaching and the forces of good and evil set out to find the Anti-Christ to stop Armageddon from happening. Good comes in the form of the charming angel Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) and the snide demon Crowley (David Tennant). The unlikely pair agree to put their differences aside (for the most part) to put an end to the apocalypse as the Four Horsemen mount their motorbikes to ride.

Amazon released the first trailer for Good Omens today ahead of its May 31 release on Amazon Prime Video and before it makes its debut at SXSW with a full-blown end-of-days spectacular. It gives our first look at Sheen and Tennant in action as the biblical odd couple and based on the trailer alone, they could not have picked a more perfect angel and demon to save the world from a child Anti-Christ.
