Re-re-run of currently watching

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

One episode in and I'm still undecided. Could be that familiarity with the source material and its influences means that if it doesn't stick precisely to the book I shall be miffed. Don't get me wrong, it's not awful, and it's clear that Mr. Gaiman hasn't allowed them to f**k about with it, but...

...well, I'm a bit ticked off that Warlock's birthday party didn't follow the original thread (I get why, guns are a bit out of favour just now), and having Crowley and Aziraphale play the part of Nanny Ashtoreth and Brother Francis wasn't ideal.

But I shall stick it out for another couple of episodes and see where it goes.

having read the book umpty-ump million times before i saw this and just the once afterwards i can honestly say you can count the (noticable) variations/additions on one hand.

Anathema being American
Her mother being involved
Pepper's kid sister missing from the Inquisition
The omission of Pepper's mum's buying of a bra in her background narrative
The addition of prophecies which were most certainly not in Ms Nutter's original
"I smell evil." "Ah yes, that would be the Jeffrey Archer."
The first encounter between Shadwell and Newton Pulsifer

And that's just in the 2nd episode.

That's part of the problem (and it's my problem, certainly, no-one else's) - you read a book and you dream up the environments where the action happens in your head. Someone makes a movie or TV series, and it's what's in their head, they take out the bits that don't matter to them (and they don't see fit to consult with you first). Sometimes it's fine, sometimes...it's disappointing.

I was hoping for some top-quality enclosure action here, with commentary a la One Man & His Dog...

"...and here's Bavarian champion Hans Bauernschneider in his first European championship. Some of you will recall his father, the great Helmut Bauernschneider, competing in the 1980 Olympic games, where he took gold in the Freestyle DryStone Walling competition, beating the USA's Chet "The Wall" Wallowicz by just 2 points in nail-biting final that had all of us in the commentary box on the edge of our seats.

Yes, John - there's a long history of competition in the Bauernschneider family. His great-uncle Erwin will be best remembered for the terrific upset in the 1964 Games, the so-called Berlin Wall semi-finals, where he faced off the USSR's Yuri Yoyoyovovich. Some great times.

And so here's Hans Bauernschneider taking his mark in the Barbed Wire (open) class. See the concentration on his face as he makes sure his gloves are on firmly. All to play for here as he approaches his first post..."

a lot of the adjustments are there due to to the times. the number of people f**ked up by the cellphone networks being down wouldnt make sense if it were the original 20,000. certain 'new' prophecies e.g. the apple one are just to give the story a credible setiing in the 21st century -an altogether different century from the one it was written in originally. i consider these allowable changes and not covered by the handful i mentioned. don't be a grump anyway- its wicked!

I finished watching Good Omens for the second time last night. Yes there are changes from the book, but it's Neil who made those changes. And I think Terry would have approved.

I think it's a really lovely TV series.
