Ep.23 Go Watch Good Omens Now...You're Welcome!
Jul 16, 2019 Season 1 Episode 23
Graham & Jocelyn

On this week's episode of Kickin' & Streamin' Graham & Jocelyn are talking about Amazon Prime Original series Good Omens, starring David Tennant and Michael Sheen along with an all-star cast of American and British actors. Before getting down to business, Graham begin by having a little rant about the upcoming live-CGI version of his second favorite movie of all time, Disney's Lion King. Graham & Jocelyn ponder as to whether there will be too many differences between the original movie released in 1994, and the 2019 version directed by John Favreau. Jocelyn confesses her fascination with Beauty & the Beast as a child and how Belle was her favorite for a reason which is unknown to most people, Graham included. The conversation turns to the main topic of the night as Graham & Jocelyn begin to analyze Good Omens. The two co-hosts run down the cast of great actors in the show and how every actor seemed to have been born to play their respective character. Jocelyn reveals how long the show was in the making and how Johnny Depp and Robin Williams were the actors originally slated to play the two main characters of Crowley (the demon), and Aziraphale (the good angel). Graham reveals he was curious about the actress who played the role of Anathema and while researching, he found out the actress is Adria Arjona, who is the daughter of Guatemalan singer songwriter Ricardo Arjona, and former Miss Puerto Rico Leslie Torres. Graham & Jocelyn also analyze the allegory presented in the series as a call to action for all different political schools of thought to come together for the good of the planet. The conversation continues and it gets exquisitely deep and philosophical as the two friends dig deeper into the message, and the entertainment values in the show.
