    How about a faithful Discworld adaptation instead?

    Good Omens is a good book, but they already tapped it and although they left a lot on the cutting room floor. It's over.

    But imagine Small Gods, for example, or Monstrous Regiment.  There's a season in either of those.

    The BBC has been adapting Sir Terry's Discworld adventures for years with mixed results. I honestly don't have much faith in Netflix or Amazon to do a better job.


    The British BBC did pretty good jobs with all of them I reckon. Especially Hogfather.

    American BBC gave us The Watch.

    Netflix falls somewhere in the middle
  • Well I'm two episodes in and I'm enjoying it. I've never read the comic.

    I even like the animated adaptations, quirky but faithful and fun.
