I was a fan of the book for years. Wasn't certain they were going to get it right, but it's incredible! Even the changes, the run through time doesn't happen in the book and the Which finder and which are way different, don't spoil the story. I was expecting nothing less from David Tenant as the demon, Crowley, but Michael Sheen as the innocent angel was terrific! And the little kid playing Adam surprised me, going from innocent to demonic in a blink. If you haven't seen it, give it a try!

I listened to the audio book, but was not aware they made a movie/TV show from it.

It wasn't available last week. I will check again after work, which is odd since it 'aired' months ago.

Still not available on ITunes America. Perhaps Canada had an earlier release date.

I just started watching it today on the recommendation of my brother. Had never heard of the book, but I am enjoying the show so far. There’s even a little magic in it! Can’t seem to find whose hands are doing the card manipulation in the first episode, though. Would be interesting to find out.

Just finished it. 99.99% faithful to the book. What changes were made were carefully thought out. Most of them didn't detract from the storyline, a couple even improved it. (I did miss the alternate Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.) The final ending was new. It was very clever.

Binged it on Prime. Pleasantly surprised. I'm familiar with Gaiman's stuff, but I can't untangle him from Prachett.

My daughter is a big Gaimen fan. All I know is "Sandman" and an episode of "Lucifer" he wrote. I have a lot of Pratchett's work!
