"⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ After season 2 I now realize this is another comfort food show for me. Season 1 is great of course but 2 brings the cozy comfort to a new level. The relationship between Aziraphale and Crowley is really just deliciously sweet as they continue their efforts to thwart both heaven and hell without being sent to the respective head offices lol. And omigod the acting by Michael Sheen and David Tennant..so deliriously good. Just incredible tour de force performances! Especially DT’s slithery slick bored apathetic demon with a not so black soul. And you can’t help but fall in love with MS who disappears completely into his adorably steadfast but slightly rebellious angelic role. This show is witty, edgy and dark but also quirky, sweet and whimsical without being cringey in the slightest. My favorite Neil Gaiman adaptation! And at least there’s no eyeball scooping which really ooged me out in The Sandman 👁️🥄😳"
"season 2 was much more enjoyable than season 1, personally! the first season was weighed down with the baggage that comes from being written in the 1980s by two well-meaning white british men. put into a modern television script, the queer jokes veer a little too far out into homophobia for my taste, and there was a TON of padding (adam screams in the woods for like half an episode). i especially was icked out realizing i was watching gaiman's self-insert character screw a manic-pixie-dream-girl type character who could easily stand in for his ex-wife, palmer. season 2 is more indulgent, but more fun. i ESPECIALLY appreciate crowley's nuanced take on the broken celestial system and the bit on Job. there's still padding (i think they should have trimmed off half of episode 4 and 5 and mooshed them together for better pacing, i thought the zombie bit got old FAST) but since the stakes weren't world-ending, it was far more tolerable. there is a lot of queer! trans rep, sex worker rep, disability rep, yes please and thank you. beelzebub's recasting and outfit update was a major improvement. and i really appreciate the empathetic ending they left it on for the human characters. i know a lot of people will be talking about the ending of season 2, but i have no plans to talk about it here. so i'll leave you all with a relevant quote i think about every day: "
"This show has a reminiscence feel to Dead Like Me and Pushing Daisies as the storylines go back and forth throughout time while making sense. It's good to have shows back that make sense while giving a back in the day vibe of good old tv shows of the past. If you're a fan of any of the shows that I listed this show being, I would recommend watching this show, I would even recommend this show to anyone who is just trying to find something to watch as they'll be hooked right off the bat.
