I have watched quite a lot of Hanna recently, but as Good Omens also popped up on my screen in ads before a Hanna episode, I decided to take a look at this show as well.
I had no clue at all what Good Omens was about, but the official description at the Prime Video website says:
Aziraphale and Crowley, of Heaven and Hell respectively, have grown rather fond of the Earth. So it’s terrible news that it’s about to end. The armies of Good and Evil are amassing. The Four Horsemen are ready to ride. Everything is going according to the Divine Plan…except that someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist. Can our heroes find him and stop Armageddon before it’s too late?
Maybe you expect Good Omens to be some sort of dark and action filled armageddon series. Well, think again? You do not need more than one minute of this show to understand that this is meant to be a comedy, amusing its viewers and also having fun with the basic principles of good and evil.
From the first minutes of Good Omens
In the first scenes of Good Omens, we meet the two angels Aziraphale and Crowley. One is meant to be the messenger of good while the other is meant to be the messenger of evil. But, as the evil (Crowley) tempt Adam and Eve into eating of the apple, they actually start to think about whether he actually did good by giving them the knowledge. After all, if it wasn’t bad, then why would Crowley tempt them to eat from the tree?
And as the two creatures keep on speaking, they both fear that they have done wrong. What if Crowley did well as he tempted them to eat from the tree, and what if Aziraphale did wrong in sending them away?
As you can understand, this is a real soup of a story, but it has some funny points to it. And as we get to know these two creatures, we understand that they actually appreciate their place on earth and they have little interested in seeing the world come to an end. So, what can they do about it?
That is what you will find out if you decide to watch Good Omens on Amazon Prime.
