Trivia

This episode (and to some extent the whole series) references extensively The Omen (1976), in which an American diplomat (Gregory Peck) is given an orphan child as replacement for his stillborn son at a hospital that subsequently burns down in a fire. The orphan, Damian, soon revealed to be the Antichrist, is rapidly seconded by a menacing rottweiler. See more »

Quotes

Narrator: It may help to understand human affairs to be clear that most of the great triumphs and tragedies of history are caused, not by people being fundamentally good or fundamentally bad, but by people being fundamentally people.

Captures the dry humor of the novels
5 June 2019 | by jayakrishnanjSee all my reviews

It captures the dry with-held humor that i remember from the books. I can see that the material for the book hasn't bee diluted beyond measure. This means that they have positively added material. Looking forward to the future episodes.
