Hello again, and welcome to another episode of Social
You're about to listen to part one of a special two part
episode. We watched and discussed the first three episodes of
the Amazon Original miniseries Good Omens. We also
discussed the book it was based on, Good Omens: The Nice and
Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch. Written by Neil
Gaiman & Terry Pratchett and published in 1990.
We talked about a little of the controversy surrounding the
release on Amazon Prime, some of the easter eggs in the show to
honor the late Terry Pratchett , and things that were missing or
presented differently in the miniseries.
If you are not familiar with the book you will still enjoy the
miniseries, but as you will hear you may be missing out on some of
the jokes. When the book begins with a caveat that reads, "Bringing
about Armageddon can be dangerous. Do not attempt it in your own
home." you know you are in for a real treat. If you haven't see the
miniseries yet, or if you started to watch and had trouble getting
into it. Start with the 20 minute cold open of episode three and
then go back and start from the beginning.
Thanks for joining us, plug in your headphones and enjoy. Don't
forget to check out the links for our guests and for other things
mentioned in the episode.
