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.

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.

Seems quite definitive. I'm kind of glad. Even though I absolutely love the series, it wouldn't be the same if they went much further beyond the book.

I agree. Neil knows when to let a good thing go. Also, given Terry's express wish and direction for all of his works left in progress to be destroyed, well perhaps Neil has decided that those wishes should include Good Omens sequel plot notes.

I got two Twitter retweets from Neil on consecutive days. One more and I think I'd have qualified for my own Netflix mini-series...
My next project is a book in which I explore the influence of the music of Beyonce on the writings of J R R Tolkien. It's called "It you write it, you have to put a ring in it"
