It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine? The Book of Revelations has given many wackos delusions of grandeur but for the first time, it's inspiring hilarious TV in Good Omens.
Based on the Neil Gaiman/Terry Pratchett novel of the same name, Good Omens follows the unlikely friendship between an angel and a demon living on earth since genesis itself. Michael Sheen is the Aziraphale, a guardian of the eastern gates of paradise. David Tennant plays his demonic counterpart, Crowley, who served as the snake that tempted Eve so many years ago.
The end is nigh, and the two are tasked with setting armageddon in motion. The problem is, both of them have grown quite accustomed to their cushy earth lives, and yeah, they've even grown soft on the collection of shaved apes known as humanity. Together, they must prevent the coming of the antichrist and stop this whole apocalypse thing from setting in motion. It's like if the Odd Couple had Biblical stakes.
Here's everything you need to know to stream Good Omens.

Good Omens Reviews
What the critics are saying:
- "The script is, unsurprisingly, annunciation-grade, luminously funny and strikingly poignant—and considering the principal characters include angels, demons and witches, (and a tween Antichrist) it’s as human as they come. ... But as good as everything is, as good as everyone is, the locus of this translation’s magic is the to-perish-for chemistry between Michael Sheen’s angel Aziraphale and David Tennant’s demon Crowley." -Amy Glynn, Paste Magazine
