Good Omens - Amazon Prime 31st May

I've never read any of the Discworld books but have seen all the adaptations and am really looking forward to seeing this.

 

 

Current tech used:
Nokia 5 on giffgaff, Core i7 9700F PC with Win 10 Pro. Apple Mac Mini late 2014 with Core i5 running 10.15
Home Internet Connection: Zen Internet Fibre To The Premises Full Fibre 2 76 Mbps Down/18 Mbps up (upgraded for homeworking),
I don't work for O2 but have an interest in networks (including mobile) and IT (which is how I earn my living)

PS. You should read the book, it's going to be a bit rushed on-screen, I think. My copy, bought some 20years ago, is much-abused, as it has been read, re-read and lent over the years. 

I always thought something was fundamentally wrong with the universe.

Heard about that but was too young.

 

I have to say, I think the Python stuff was very much of it's time, I've never really found it amusing to be honest.

Oh, it takes a particular mindset - but here's how many reacted to the Python's Life of Brian:

And not to pick on any particular scene from Brian:

And get your notepad out, it's chock full of famous faces, Neil Gaiman personally asked certain people to play certain roles, and many of them obliged. 

 

I expect an extravaganza, and a right rollicking ride to boot ๐Ÿ‘
