Adaptations can be hit or miss. So I'm delighted to say this is a home run. Good Omens the TV show has kept incredibly true to the book, and the, frankly fantastic, acting of Michael Sheen and David Tennant keep the viewer wonderfully entertained. The story of Armageddon has never been so much rollicking good fun. John Hamm, best known for Mad Men, plays socially handicapped Gabriel, and Jack Whitehall embodies Newton Pulsifer as though it was written for him.
Readers will admire the way the writing remains true to our beloved favorite, and first time viewers will enjoy the romp through the End of Days.
