Good Omens: Lockdown: Neil Gaiman, David Tennant, Michael Sheen Return

When it comes to Neil Gaiman (American Gods) and the late Sir Terry Pratchett's (The Colour of Magic) Good Omens, time can be a pretty funny thing. If you watched the series adaptation on BBC Two, it's only been a little more than two months since you last checked in with angel Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) and […]

"Rick and Morty", "The Boys", "Fleabag" & More: The Bleeding Cool TV Top 10 Best of 2019

Once upon a time… working for television was labelled a "demotion," a professional death sentence for actors whose careers were considered on a no-way-back downward spiral.

Once upon a time… working for television was labelled a "demotion," a professional death sentence for actors whose careers were considered on a no-way-back downward spiral.

Sorry, "Good Omens" Haters: Neil Gaiman Loved Your Petition for Netflix to Cancel the Show

Remember when Good Omens premiered on Amazon Prime earlier this year? A whole bunch of people got upset about it. The original novel by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman is a long-beloved and cherished fantasy-comedy, but apparently fanatical Christians aren't fans. Over 20,000 people apparently signed a petition condemning the show for taking "another step […]

"Good Omens" & "Fleabag": Amazon Prime Video Would Welcome Series Returns

"Good Omens" Crew Posts Touching Terry Pratchett Tribute

Sir Terence David John Pratchett (or Terry, if you read his books) was possessed of a singular intellect, with a passion for writing clever dialogue for clever characters. His Discworld books are particular favorites of mine, but nothing, and I mean nothing, comes close to Good Omens, his 1990 collaboration with another clever person, Neil […]

"Good Omens": Thousands Protest at Wrong Freaking Platform

Good Omens was many things. Entertaining? Yeah, check that. Engaging? Hells to the yes. David Tennant and Michael Sheen were miraculous as Crowley and Aziraphale. Maybe a little long? Sure. The series would have clipped along beautifully with one less episode. Sacrilegious? What the actual hell? 20,000 people identifying themselves as Christians flooded Netflix with […]

The third episode of Good Omens, the Amazon series about a demon and angel who totally aren't in love with each other at the End of Days, features a cold open that lasts a good 28 minutes. Seriously, 28 minutes go by before the opening credits even roll. In those 28 minutes, we see Aziraphale […]

Walking Round the Good Omens Pop Up On Greek Street, Soho

Yesterday, I rocked up at the Good Omens Pop Up on Greek Street, Soho, London, recreating Aziraphale's bookshop from Good Omens – the book and the TV show – and giving folk an immersive experience.

It's the End of the World as We Know it, and 'Good Omens' Feels Fantastic (REVIEW)

"The whole business with the fossilized dinosaur skeletons was a joke that paleantologists haven't seen yet," intones the voice of god, realized wryly by Frances McDormand, "This proves two things: Firstly, God does not play dice with the universe- I play an ineffable game of my own devising. For everyone else, it's like playing poker […]
