Good Omens 1.3 – Hard Times

There’s a bit of a “haven’t I seen this before” in the very, very long pre-titles sequence to tonight’s episode. It traces Aziraphale and Crowley’s long friendship over a few thousand years and reminded me of Dream and Hob’s meet-every-hundred-years friendship from the pages of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman comic. Then again, it didn’t really strike Marie that way, and she’s read more of Gaiman than I have. I really enjoyed it. Mark Gatiss shows up in the Blitz segment as a Nazi spy.

We were up pretty late tonight and didn’t get started until our son’s usual bedtime. Afraid he mostly zoned out of this one. We shouldn’t keep him up playing games, I suppose. He’ll need a recap before the next installment.
