Good Omens – BBC4
I listened to the first two episodes of Good Omens on BBC4 yesterday. I’m one hour ahead of the UK so that was all I managed.
What fun. The voices fit the characters. Hearing Them’s voices was a bit strange. They sounded like kids. I know, they are supposed to do that, but for some reason it all of a sudden sounded strange.
Dirk Maggs did great job with his adaptation of the story. Hastur and Ligum were the baddies they were supposed to be. Crowley and Aziraphale were the fence-sitters they had become and Anathema was depressed about losing her book. Finally, Dog changed with the correct sound.
In honor of the occasion, Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman played the cops who chased Crowley and found more than they were looking for when they opened the hood of their car.
If you have a chance, you really should drop by BBC4 and enjoy the comedy while you can.
