Goofs

In the 1601 scene, Crowley opens a door and walks towards Aziraphale (with no William Shakespeare to be seen). In the next shot, Crowley has disappeared, the door is shut, and Shakespeare is present. In the following shot, the door is left open again, and Crowley has completed his walk towards Aziraphale. See more »

This is running out of steam drastically...
20 June 2019 | by benprichardsdotcomSee all my reviews

You know the title *above is true when you spend the opening 20 minutes of this episode with Sheen and Tenant, before resuming the dreadfully average Good Omens story. Crowley and... err... The Angel are easily the best thing about GO. I had a lot of goodwill towards this after episode one, despite my dislike of Neil Gaiman's work. But after now watching 3 episodes I wonder how he Gaiman and Terry Pratchett managed to work together on a novel as popular as Good Omens.

I am not sure how they have managed to make such a fun story this boring, bland, mundane. It's very slow, painfully so.
