Percentage of users who rate a movie or TV show positively.
The show's script is fresh, original, and will keep most viewers entertained throughout. However some of the side-characters' backstories are less than impressive, and take away from pace and rhythm of the otherwise well-crafted show.
With an engaging cast, a wonderful sense of style, and a story that feels both timeless and tailor-made to today, Good Omens crafts a very binge-worthy fantasy tale that audiences will likely fall in love with.
Good Omens clearly had the potential to be the next great fantasy show but it fails to put forward a strong narrative, favouring instead a series of oddly connected moments which do little for the overall theme and tone of the show.
