I just finished watching the second season of Good Omens, after rewatching the first season since it's been a while and I hardly remembered what happened.

This season suffered from a really underwhelming main arc. The first season had the whole antichrist ushering in the apocalypse arc, with major stakes to keep me engaged. Second season had an Archangel lose his memory, and spend the whole season faffing about a bookshop while people wondered wtf was wrong with him. There was no real danger, and barely any progression of the mystery.

Aside from that however, the sideshow angels and demons returned with banter every bit as amusing as the first season. And the finale teed up a third season, which has not yet been officially announced but seems to be highly expected. This was far from my favorite show in recent times, but I'll certainly return if they do.

Just finished that last night myself.

I personally enjoyed the nod to Pratchett with the bit about seamstresses.

Look, we need to raise a psychopath who will murder God, we have no time to be spending on cooking.

the way your fingertips plant meaningless soliloquies makes me think you are the true evil among us.

The Winter King reimagines King Arthur, his Round Table, legendary sword Excalibur, Wizard Merlin, and so forth. The Saxons are invading, but the kings of Britain can't stop fighting each other long enough to mount a defense. Will Arthur be able to unite them? Or is he destined to rise above them all? Only time will tell...

I enjoyed the first season well enough. Though if I had to list one complaint, it would be that this show feels very much like any of the other myriad early-Britain war shows and movies we've seen many times before.

No second season announced yet, but I'm optimistic.


AppleTV's Silo gives me major Snowpiercer vibes. A mini-civilization shoved into a very confined space where mysteries abound surrounding their origins and the activities of their leadership. Then a nobody from the Dregs is suddenly lifted up to assume a law-enforcement role, giving them opportunity to begin unraveling these mysteries, which naturally arouses the ire of the shadowy figures pulling all the strings.

There are some clever misleads that kept me guessing throughout the season, right up to the very end. Second season has been approved, and although the Writer's Strike caused a delay we still hope to see it come out sometime in 2024. I'm looking forward to more Silo!
