In The Beginning

At the beginning of time, Eve is tempted by a demon in the guise of a snake. As she and Adam are cast out of the Garden of Eden, Adam and his pregnant mate go out into an uncertain world armed with a flaming sword and nothing else.


The demon that tempts Eve is Cowley and the Angel who gives the pair his flaming sword is Aziraphale. As they watch the pair leave the garden and make their first steps into a new world, the two discuss whether the choices they made are truly good or evil as they question what they’ve just done. Their conversation sparks a friendship that lasts centuries.

In the present day, with both the angel and demon living and operating on Earth, an envoy from Hell calls on Crowley to tell him that he’s been chosen to deliver the Anti-Christ. After a series of mishaps, the child is delivered. Unfortunately, he’s given to the wrong couple. Aziraphale and Crowley decide to groom the child they think is the Anti-Christ in a bid to prevent Armageddon.

Eleven years later, the pair discover they’ve made a mistake and its now a race to prevent the end. If they can find the right kid first.


The first episode of Good Omens hits on all cylinders. It’s fun, funny, irreverent and filled with charm. David Tennant and Michael Sheen shine as the leads and the material gives them ample opportunity to fill the screen with their presence. The supporting cast does a great job as well with the material and the dialogue is fantastic.

There are some truly impressive visuals in this episode especially the special effects. Between the pace, dialogue and plotting, the first episode of Good Omens draws you in and sustains your curiosity.
