Neil Gaiman hilariously responds to Christian group demanding Netflix cancel Amazon's Good Omens

Neil Gaiman knows how to take a joke, even an accidental one. The author responded to the petition created by a Christian group — Return to Order — for Netflix to cancel his show Good Omens, even though it airs on Amazon Prime Video.

Gaiman, who wrote every episode of the show, took the criticism in stride. “This is so beautiful… Promise me you won’t tell them?” he tweeted Wednesday.

Both Netflix and Amazon have also responded to the petition, and of course, made promises neither could actually keep. “ok we promise not to make any more,” the Netflix UK & Ireland account tweeted.

The Amazon Prime Video account also replied, saying, “Hey @netflix, we’ll cancel Stranger Things if you cancel Good Omens.”

I read this on my lunch hour at work. Read the whole article. It's hilarious.

2. I haven't seen it yet but I thought the article was amusing

It's on my radar now, so thanks crazy fundies. I love David Tennant and Benedict Cumberbatch so now I have to watch it.

4. It's nice.

It's not the greatest show ever but it's nice. Sheen and Tennant are great. I only read the book once and can't really remember enough of it to compare it to the series.
