I haven't read the book yet. We finished the mini series last night, though, and now I do like it. :) I've bought the audiobook and will be listening to it next to compare. :)

Glad you like it.

The big deal is because it’s a VERY popular book. :)

I still haven’t watched 4-6. I don’t know why I’m so sleepy in India!

Jet lag?

I finished watching 5, and I'm enjoying it a lot more. I do realize that my complaints are about what they left out rather than what is in. Gaiman did say that they had to leave many things out for budget reasons.

I don't know what it means for the Tolkien fanfic they have in the work. Surely that would have to be a much more expensive production.

I’m over jet lag.... it’s just low entropy in Dun here, I think.

Yes, there was enough material for a full season...

We are almost done with chapter one, and haven't heard any significant differences yet between book and screen.

Thanks to TV Good Omens, I finally got the "Ciao means food" joke. It made no sense to me on page but when spoken I recognized that it sounded like Chow. :blackeye: Typical Pratchett pun, like a rake in the grass that was just waiting *for years* until I stepped on it.

Well, I loved it!

Props to whoever shoehorned in the Brass Band rendition of Lazing on a Sunday Afternoon!

I've seen till 5 now. I love it too! I just don't like the narrator approach, but it does make things simpler.
Hastur is also *brilliant*. As is Gabriel.

But man, Crowley and Aziraphale take the cake, icing and the writing on the cake.

I think the voice of God (as opposed to Metatron, the Voice of God) as a narrator is a means to include some of the clever bits of the book that would not work as dialog. It kinda works.

I've always known that Tenant would be a fantastic Crowley, but he has exceeded my expectations.
