Good Omens 2 Review: The Heartfelt Heavenly Harmony!

‘Everyday, it’s a-gettin’ closer
Goin’ faster than a roller coaster
Love like yours will surely come my way
A-hey, a-hey, hey.’

If you enjoy good music, you might recognize this song. It’s called ‘Everyday,’ sung by Buddy Holly, released back in 1957. Recently, it was covered in Amazon Prime’s Original Good Omens 2.

Now, coming straight to the point, Good Omens 1 came out in 2019, and this year they released its second season. I can’t express how eagerly I waited for this one. Good Omens is about the friendship between Angel Aziraphale (played by Michael Sheen) and the fallen angel (demon) Crowley (David Tennant) Remember he was in Harry Potter and Goblet of Fire too?). Yes, both are experienced actors and perform marvelously. This show is written by Neil Gaiman (season 1) and John Finnemore (season 2) and directed by Douglas MacKinnon.

The story revolves around our two main characters, Aziraphale and Crowley, who are sent to Earth by Heaven and Hell.

In season 1 of Good Omens, we witness how Aziraphale and Crowley come together to prevent Earth’s Armageddon. Season 2 focuses on Archangel Gabriel. Gabriel rejects the second coming of Armageddon on Earth, resulting in losing his position. However, he chooses to put his memory into a fly and leaves Heaven. Despite his lost memory, he discovers Aziraphale’s bookshop in London on Earth.

Now, both Heaven and Hell launch an intense search for him. Both sides suspect that Aziraphale and Crowley are involved. Initially, Crowley hesitates to assist Aziraphale in protecting Gabriel, but let’s face it, he can’t abandon Aziraphale. So, he decides to help him.

In the last episode, Gabriel remembers everything. We find out he and Beelzebub (the demon from Hell) have fallen in love. Once the truth comes out, Gabriel and Beelzebub quit their jobs and go to Alpha Centauri, choosing love over picking sides. For now, the second coming of Armageddon is canceled by Metatron, and angels and demons return to their respective realms.

There’s a twist at the end: Crowley realizes he loves Aziraphale, and Aziraphale is appointed as the supreme angel of Heaven. Aziraphale wants Crowley to join him, but Crowley decides against it. He doesn’t want to go to Hell or Heaven; he just wants to be with Aziraphale.

There’s even a kissing scene between Aziraphale and Crowley as they part ways, giving us hope for a season 3.

I really want Aziraphale to love Crowley back in season 3. It’s clear from season 1 (and just common sense) that they already love each other a lot.

I told you a lot about the show, but I suggest you watch it. It offers both comedy and valuable lessons about friendship.

Michael Sheen and David Tennant, without a doubt, have portrayed their roles exceptionally well. So, give it a watch!

Also in case you haven’t heard of Buddy Holly’s Everyday, you can listen to it here.

  10. I can’t believe I’ve never heard of Good Omens until now! I’ve loved David Tennant since Doctor Who (and then Harry Potter, as you mentioned), and I’ve read almost all of Neil Gaiman’s books. It’s a mystery! Well, I’m glad I stumbled upon your blog post while looking for something new to watch because this sounds fantastic. I love the hint of LGBTQ+ representation, and the story sounds really interesting. I love how you gave us an overview without revealing too much, so we’d still want to watch!

  11. I LOVE Good Omens ever since it was a book. Being a Terry Pratchett fan I just couldn’t skipit. And it also made me meet Niel Gaiman books which I enjoy endlessly as well. The season 2 for me was no less than season 1. Yes, not as epic and not that hilarious (funny enough though) but so romantic and adorable.

  12. I haven’t heard of this! This is an awesome review – thank you for sharing it I will have to look into it sometime

  13. It’s fantastic to read your review of Good Omens 2! The show’s blend of classic music, charismatic actors like Michael Sheen and David Tennant, and a unique storyline centered around the friendship between an angel and a demon is truly captivating. The evolution of the plot from preventing Armageddon in the first season to the focus on Archangel Gabriel and the intriguing search for him in the second season sounds intriguing. Your insights have definitely piqued my interest even more. Can’t wait to dive into this heartfelt heavenly harmony!

  16. I have seen the trailer but didn’t actually get time to watch. After reading your review I would love to watch it.

  17. Buddy Holly was born and raised in Lubbock Tx. I also was born and raised there until I turned 16. Then we moved to the DFW area where I am today. I’ll have to check out this tv series.

  18. I love this show. I’m waiting for some friends and family to finish it so I can get their reaction to the end…which you spoiled for others in your post LOL. Such a great show…I can’t wait for more.

  19. I really need to watch season 1 as I know this is something I will enjoy. Although I do have the book as well so I’m not sure whether to read the book first x

  20. I particularly enjoyed your discussion of the themes of love, loyalty, and the choices characters make. Your anticipation for a potential season 3 is palpable, and I’m sure many readers share your hope for the further development of Aziraphale and Crowley’s relationship. Your recommendation to watch the show is compelling, and I appreciate how you emphasize the blend of comedy and meaningful life lessons that it offers.

  21. Very cool. This isn’t the type of show I would normally watch, but your review has my interest piqued. I especially like that they are embracing the LGBT side of things…we need more and more studios to embrace that!

  22. Always love a Netflix recommendation (saves me flicking through all the not-so=great options they have) I also like to watch programmes that have good life lessons.

  23. Your review of Good Omens 2 has left me intrigued and excited to start watching! I can already feel the anticipation building as I imagine the interactions and conflicts that might arise. You have convinced me that this is a series worth checking out. Thanks for sharing your insights!

  24. I am not much into romance, leave aside gay romance, But going by your review here Moni, I am really intrigued about a love between an angel a do-gooder, and a fallen angel, How they each affect each other in this process would be really interesting to watch.

  25. Looking at the poster I had no clue that this is the story Moni. I am quite familiar with angels n Fallen angels as I have watched a couple of series based on them. But the story line n concept of this one is different from the ones i’ve watched. Now I guess I have to start with S1.

  26. I started watching it and then left it mid-way. I guess, I should start with season 1 to understand some of the contexts. I will keep it on my to-be-watched list for sure.

  27. Your review of Good Omens 2 actually proved to be interesting to me but unfortunately I am not that keen to watch English series or movies. But No worries I am recommending this one to my husband as he is a die-heart English movie lover. Your insights of this movie will help me to give a brief to my husband and I am sure he will love to watch. Thanks for the recommendation.

  28. I haven’t heard about the show. I am always checking the review first to start any show. Thank you for sharing the review. Definitely going to my watchlist. I will watch both season.

  29. I didn’t know about this show, but I’ve put it on my list to watch. I really like watching TV shows that someone suggest. It seems like this one has lots of surprises in it to make people want to keep watching!

  30. I have not heard about these series but I really want to watch it. I am a lover of good series and I guess this would be an interesting one to watch. Dafinately going to watch it. Thanks for the review.

  31. I have read the book and as always, the series is off on a tangent. But this time it is for the better. I did enjoy the first season and will check out the second one soon.

  32. Bedabrata Chakraborty

    Thoroughly enjoyed reading the post on Good Omens 2 on Netflix. It provided insights into the show. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Will watch the seasons now.

  33. What a lovely review! Good Omens 2 continues to captivate with its brilliant fusion of humor, wit, and supernatural intrigue. The seamless chemistry between the angel Aziraphale and the demon Crowley remains the show’s driving force, their dynamic evolving amidst new cosmic escapades. The show masterfully balances its quirky narrative with a deeper exploration of morality and destiny, while introducing an array of engaging new characters. With its sharp writing, stellar performances, and visually enchanting sequences, Good Omens 2 proves to be an irresistible continuation of the beloved series, delighting both dedicated fans and newcomers alike.

  34. This looks like an interesting show me and my hubby could binge watch. I usually pick lousy shows so having this reviewed by many and having read the summary of it before really watching it gives me a good feeling it won’t be a waste of time watching.
