In which I offer two videos: one explaining ‘Good Omens’ and one explaining (what went wrong with) ‘Game of Thrones.’

Good Omens will debut on Amazon this weekend, and for those of you who have not read the book, Uproxx’s animators have made a short video explaining what the show is all about. It is worth three minutes of your time.

Meanwhile, Neil Gaiman wishes the apocalypse didn’t seem so plausible. 

“I mean, if I could trade, I would have a much duller world in which we had to try and convince people that an apocalypse was likely, instead of having the world that we’re in, where the nuclear clock is ticking closer and closer, and where I’m going: ‘Actually, as far as I can tell everybody in charge is fucking nuts.’ You know, I would like sensible people and an end of history, that was fun.”

I feel ya, Neil.

Screen Rant shows how the final season of Game of Thrones was pitched and … yeah … this tracks. SPOILERS OBVIOUSLY.

Netflix’s auto-play trailer for the 2013 movie, The World’s End is apparently pretty spoilery, which angered writer/director Edgar Wright. This creates an interesting question: is it possible to spoil a 6-year-old movie? On the one hand, if you’re spoiled by something that has been out for 6 years, that’s on you. But on the other hand, is it too much to ask to not cut a trailer that unnecessarily spoils a major plot point?

Dan Harmon posted a bunch of ideas for season five of Rick & Morty on Instagram, including “when-wolves” and “Jerry gets a pinecone in his butt.”

Oh, hey, Dwight’s back.

Hey, old people, y’all remember those “Get a Mac” commercials with Justin Long and John Hodgeman? 66 ads aired, but they filmed some 300 of them, including one that never aired that featured a drunken Santa Claus as played by Zach Galifianakis that Steve Jobs thought was too funny. RELEASE THE ADS, APPLE.

A Stranger Things art book is coming.
