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.

For anyone with the best part of a grand to spare, there's a Good Omens clapper board that's been signed by Neil, Doug and the GO cast that's being auctioned for Ty Hafan children's hospice on eBay. Bids are currently at £720

I wonder if eBay would allow me to put the cost on my slate?

So some religious folk in the good ol' US of A got rather hot and bothered about the Good Omens TV series and started a petition to get it taken off the air. It got 20,000 signatures from people who had clearly never watched it, as the petition was aimed at Netflix . . . :lol: :lol: :lol:

Neil Gaiman and Doug Mackinnon Tweeted about it, so I decided it would be fun to reply with a couple of complaints to the BBC's Points Of View from a certain Mr R.P. Tyler - they seem to have been rather popular :D

If anyone is on Twitter and needs a bit of cheering up, R.P. Tyler seems to have his own Twitter account . . . :lol:

Came across an interesting coincidence while watching Lucifer with Good Omens.
Both series involved Neil Gaiman.
In Good Omens, there is a character Newton Pulsifer, a Witchfinder recruit.
In Lucifer, there is a Production Accountant with the name Scott Pulicifer.
