Good omens - Amazon Prime Video, 2019  

While the arrival of the second season of American Gods (a show with an amazing aesthetic!) is imminent, 2019 brings to the screen a new project based on a novel written by Neil Gaiman together with Terry Pratchett. Good Omens with its ironic and wacky story of angels, demons, witches, children, parody of the classic horror movies and other fantastic creatures, promises to be one of the coolest series of the year. To confirm this, we should wait to see all the episodes following the adventures of the angel Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) and the devil Crowley (David Tennant), two friends committed to averting the armageddon caused by an eleven-year-old antichrist. In the cast also Johnn Hamm and Frances McDormand.

In the cast also Hugh Laurie aka Dr. House.


Miracle Workers - TBS, 12 February 

And if God, now disinterested in what happens on Earth, just wanted to devote himself to his hobbies or maybe open a restaurant? The planet would be on the verge of catastrophe.
