Fact: Aziraphale is a great Angel and all around good guy.
My unpopular opinion based on season 2: Crowley deserves better.
Spoilers for Good Omens Season 2. The whole season dropped on Amazon in a lovely and much needed surprise! (I didn’t know it would be the whole season!)
So as seen in the trailers Gabriel shows up at the bookstore without clothes or memory. Aziraphale naturally offers to hide and help him despite the fact both heaven and hell are after him.
And let’s face it after season one neither of those places are happy with our ineffable husbands.
Crowley, of course doesn’t want to, but he’s got his angel’s back as always.
This season is kind of a mixed bag. Jon Hamm is very funny but the Gabriel stuff does take a backseat for a lot of the show. There’s also this whole side thing with two characters relationship that was like… eh. I mean I didn’t hate it and I like the actresses but it was whatever.
But the show is very much about the relationship between Crowley and Aziraphale and of course that part is (mostly lovely). David Tennant and Michael Sheen have great chemistry and they know these characters and make them delightful to spend time with except…
Man that zombie episode was a snooze fest that even they couldn’t completely save. But the whole history of their relationship just makes Crowley more interesting. Like who was he in heaven? Why doesn’t Aziraphale appreciate everything he does for him more? I mean in a lot of ways Crowley is a terrible demon.
There’s actually a fan theory that Crowley was actually the angel Lucifer- which would explain a lot. Yeah he could be Raphael too but Lucifer would be a lot cooler. Also on the side while I can take or leave the human characters (and leave the zombies) I do enjoy checking in on the beauracratically minded denizens of heaven and hell.
But that f-ing ending!
I mean apparently a season 3 is… possible? Happening? I want to see it in writing! So I get the separation. The Metatron is definitely up to something that’s not what bothered me so much.
What bothered me was that, “I forgive you.”
You forgive him Aziraphale? You forgive him? After he came clean on his feelings. And then you kick him while he’s down. Yeah I’m not overly happy with Aziraphale after that ending. At least he seemed pretty quickly likely he knew he had made a mistake. Let’s hope we get the finale season (I’m assuming) quicker than season 2.
So rant done…
It was a very mixed season for me but my favorite demon and angel made it worthwhile. Plus it’s only six episodes though that zombie one does feel longer.
