Christians Petition Netflix to Cancel Amazon's Good Omens

A Christian group called Return to Order is very upset with the Amazon series Good Omens, which features the forces of heaven and hell teaming up to stop the Antichrist. So upset, in fact, that they have amassed more than 20,000 signatures demanding it be canceled (all episodes are already streaming on Amazon Prime) by … Netflix.

evidence trumps experience | performance over perfection | responsibility – authority = scapegoat | emotions motivate; data doesn't

It left me a little cold.  The more I think about it, swaths of the book does too.  Especially Shadwell's treatment of Agnes, and her "ability to see the love underneath".

The series is fabulous. All of the cast is good, but David Tennant is brilliant as the demon Crowley. The series is worth watching just to see how he inhabits the character.

Well that was brilliant!

Thanks for turning me on to that. I binged it all yesterday.

Now I want to read the book.
