Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch, by Neil Gaiman and the late Terry Pratchett, is one of our favorite books. It's the story of an angel named Aziraphale and a demon named Crowley who team up to try to prevent the Apocalypse. These two may represent Heaven and Hell, but at the end of the day, they've grown accustomed to a certain standard of living on Earth which they'd like to maintain. It's a darkly funny and well-written tale. There's a mix-up involving the birth of the anti-Christ, the Four Horsemen show up, and there's a dog. We're always happy when there's a dog.
Something else that makes us happy is that the first trailer for the Amazon Prime Video adaptation has been released, and it stars Clutter favorite David Tennant (as Crowley) and Michael Sheen (as Aziraphale.) It's a terrific pairing, and we can't wait for the six-part miniseries to arrive in 2019! Take a look:
It's up to these two to save us all. (pic via variety.com)
