Critic Consensus: A smörgåsbord of heavenly imagery and irreverent hilarity, Good Omens works thanks to to Michael Sheen and David Tennant's very-nearly-holy (or maybe unholy?) chemistry -- though, at only six episodes, it's a rare adaptation that may have benefitted from being a little less faithful to the good book.

News & Interviews for Good Omens: Miniseries
David Tennant and Michael Sheen bounce off each other with an energy that makes for intoxicating viewing.
If everything else feels decidedly extraneous, it's mostly worth it to see two such estimable actors having such a lovely doomsday.
It feels like being told you're having fun rather than being allowed to have it.
Together, it's like watching two musicians at the top of their game play a duet; they positively sing... The rest of it's not bad -- not world-ending, but not exactly heavenly, either.
Such archness. Such ostentatious charm and so-called wit. It made me feel like I wanted to suck the sugar from my teeth.
