The casting of the two leads is brilliant & the interpretation of the Pratchett/Gaiman humour results in some truly great moments of visual storytelling. As an overall narrative however it fails to deliver. The subplot about the devil child is massively under-developed, resulting in a huge anti-climax, & the gallery of supporting characters bring very little to the storyline beyond paying off a series of weak jokes.
Very enjoyable. It's a good collaboration between Gaiman and Pratchett. Reminded me of the 'Hoggfather', which you should watch if you liked this one. Brilliant casting, though some prominent actors seemed a bit wasted in small roles. The pacing was a bit strange as well. A little fluffed up.
My favourite Gaiman novel adapted with the deft touch that comes from having the writer's active involvement. Even if analysed as an extended film rather than a TV series, it is a delight. Subversion of grand narratives within the fantasy comedy drama mold always ticks a box for me. They've smashed it here.
I really want to like this show. Its witty, tacky and silly, the CGI is really bad (on purpose?) and the two leads have great chemistry. But there are obvious pacing problems where the build-up and delivery of many of the jokes is wasted.
I think... it's been a long time since I see something so sweet, so beautiful and that it made me happy inside the all the bad things that happen in the day.
Sheen and Tennant is a perfect couple, the history is perfect, the ambient beautiful and the love...
Thanks for this serie, thanks for gimme the most cute six episodes in this year
