Good Omens is being made in to a new TV Series . . .

The bit of the forum where you can be the director, producer, and critic of anything that is movie related in a Discworldly sort of way.

Not only have I got Good Omens playing on a loop at the moment, but I ordered some stuff from Amazon yesterday and if it doesn't turn up in one of these boxes someone at Amazon is sure going to hear about it!!! :twisted:

I may need help . . . :lol:

A friend is saving her most recent Amazon box for me.

I most definitely need help. Want to form an on-line support group? :lol:


I think this IS that online support group!

I think these boxes might only be happening in the US, as I've ordered several things in the last few days and none of it has arrived in GO boxes :(

Pat has gotten at least one, according to Twitter. A friend in Leeds is a friend indeed. :wink:

One of my work colleagues/friends got an Amazon package today with a Good Omens-themed box. We're in Australia.

What is everyone ordering?

I received 3 different Amazon orders over the last few days & none of them came in a GO box - am I ordering the wrong stuff?

Meant to post this the other day, as is a little gem that Neil Gaiman Tweeted out for the delectation of fans

Neil Gaiman@neilhimself

"This was my mock-up for the art department of the Agnes prophecy that Anathema hands Newt to demonstrate they only did it once. In the end we decided it was funnier not to see it on screen, so we didn't do one with… "

Not in Leeds, I'm afraid: that box was delivered by Amazon US to an address in Los Angeles and has been retrieved from the recycling for me. I have, however, ordered a new shower curtain for my daughter, to be delivered to her Hudson, NY address and I live in hope!

Oook!

Possible Easter Egg: In Episode One Gabriel says he does not sully the temple of his body with gross matter. He dresses in gray all through the show. And he advocates the destruction of the human race for the sake of his own definition of "good".

Sorry to burst your easter egg, but Gabriel dresses in lilac, not grey, and even has lilac eyes. Also he says the "Earth won't destroy itself" rather than humanity specifically. Although the bit in the bookshop with Gabriel and Sandalphon does have a certain feel of Lady Le Jean visiting Jeremy about it :)

There's going to be a limited edition (500 copies) of the Good Omens music vinyl box set, with a print signed by Neil Gaiman - it's £99 mind you!
