First 2 episodes, so far, of "Good Omens"; many lines have made it unedited from page to screen.

There are a few bits from the sequel they would have written, especially at the end.

I was just thinking, ERB's Tarzan books - the movies are nothing like faithful, but they're still the better option; I re-read part of one of the books... gosh, last year?  It is hideously racist and misogynistic.  That doesn't come through as badly in the movies or TV shows.

That last interview of Patty Briggs suggested a TV series for the Mercy books. I think it would be a better fit than a movie would.
