we oughta talk about the good omens characters that aren’t aziraphale and crowley like yeah i wish some of them had been better-developed and more complex but i genuinely feel that what we got was pretty damn great
anathema? anathema device? introduced as a tiny child? a tiny child in possession of The Most Important Book In The Universe? scribbling on the front page? fucking epic. and eleven years later this woman is ready to Risk It All and move from malibu to like, rural fucking england? deadass tells the airport security woman she’s there because she’s commanded by an ancient family prophecy? i saw that and was like oh we’ve decided to stan forever
agnes? agnes nutter? hid roofing nails in her skirts? blew up an entire village? was the last true witch of england and knew it and SAID IT? called a biblical angel foolish? called him foolish from beyond the grave? didn’t know what america was so she just said “eagle.” called a random stranger out for cheating on his wife. saved aziraphale and crowley’s lives by suggesting the body swap. fucking unparalleled
newt. newt pulsifer okay like this bitch in the book was literally a snore and also racist and so mediocre in personality that i had to drag myself through his scenes but tv newt? tv newt is a different fucking species. this newt is a man of TASTE who stans doctor who and chugs respect anathema juice every second of his life. there’s a tornado outside and this literal witch is furiously kissing him and he breaks off and says “shouldn’t we go to dinner first?” legends only. “i’m not overreacting i’m just getting quite calmly worried about getting shot” “the world is ending and i’ve never robbed a bank” oh i like this man
brian?? brian?? advocate of healthy lunches and dirt?? “yes the world is broken but that’s a reason to fix it” did everybody see this guy?? adam’s eyes turn red and he starts floating and yells at the sky for a solid minute and then collapses to the ground and brian runs over with a fucking cricket bat ready to UTTERLY wreck his friend’s shit right then and there (which is iconic) but as soon as adam appologises brian’s like shit nvm we’re cool. absolute legend
wensley? jeremy “youngster” wensleydale? only voice of reason in the entire fucking show? he’s like hell YEAH I’ll take chocolate from a witch! let’s fuckin go! he’s out there saving the world and talking back to r.p. tyler and his hair stays perfect the entire time. im jealous
PEPPER PIPPIN GALADRIEL MOONCHILD holy shit where do I begin with her she is ELEVEN and the flaming sword is HALF HER HEIGHT and she HEFTS that shit and straight-up MURKS the incarnation of centuries of carnage while invoking feminism and she says the most iconic line of the show which happens to be the best tori amos lyric of all time “i believe in peace bitch” YES!!! im stanning!! im STANNING!! i am!!
adam young ADAM YOUNG, PEOPLE! he’s the real hero here and i was like Oh Yay Another White Boy Chosen One but i love this dude i do because he wants to believe the world is more magical and exciting and healthy than it is! he wants to believe it so desperately he MAKES it that way? but when he realises it hurts his friends he stops cold and rejects A Six Thousand Year Old Cosmic Destiny like it’s nothing listen this guy shit-talks satan himself because he fully understands in 10 minutes something that took aziraphale and crowley 6000 years just to faintly grasp… he’s a child and he’s human and he has all the world he wants and that, my friends, is supremely The Point Of It
madame tracy holyyyyyy shit. not only did miranda richardson INVENT ACTING switching back and forth between tracy and aziraphale like that but she was a Style Icon every moment she was onscreen… this woman owned an entire BED full of stuffed animals and not one but TWO stupid wigs and was So Frickin Good at being a Fake Psychic she could save enough money to buy a new HOUSE and she OWNS A PINK MOTORBIKE also and more importantly she was relentlessly kind and literally more of an angel than aziraphale but when aziraphale took over her body she was just like. Oh Alright This Is What’s Happening Today and clearly aziraphale is a centuries-old holy being but tracy is just like Nope Nah No Thanks We’re Not Killing Children and saves the fuckin world by tilting the gun upward and refusing to kill adam. im on the floor
DOG. literally a dog, 10000000/10
the nightingale. a miracle caused by gay love at the ritz. i lost it
Yeah, I didn’t even know this show had other characters until I actually watched it. But this is all true. Good post, op.
