Good Omens: Miniseries - Rotten Tomatoes

Good Omens: Miniseries (2019)



Critic Consensus: A smörgåsbord of heavenly imagery and irreverent hilarity, Good Omens works thanks 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.

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.

Good Omens continues to have its special effects moments. But there aren't enough of them to overcome the basic tedium afflicting it.

A cursory overview of the plot would suggest that the two decide to work together to defend humanity from divine caprice - but the performances make it clear that what each entity is truly fighting for is one another, and the bond they've forged.
