Review by Allan on 18th May, 2011
 
3 stars "You'll be surprised "

I'll admit that when I first watched Almighty Johnsons I was extremely skeptical and didn't have much faith in the success of the story. However, upon the completion of the series I felt a sense of satisfaction which was more than I got from the first season of Outrageous Fortune.

I've given this DVD set a rating of 3/5 simply because I feel that this platform is quickly becoming outdated, and a BluRay set would have been more sufficient. Perhaps that's something for South Pacific Pictures to ponder.

However in regards to the show itself, it does get the job done. At the end of the day Almighty Johnsons delivers and fun and wild ride into a new territory of Norse God's and Goddesses mixed in with that great New Zealand culture. This is one show you cannot afford to miss.

5 stars "Brilliant NZ show"

A brilliant show from NZ, that could possibly even rival Outrageous Fortune. Original storyline, with great actors and some really funny parts. Highly recommended.

Description

The Almighty Johnsons TV Show is a comedy-drama series from the makers of Outrageous Fortune – about four brothers who just happen to be descended from Norse Gods.

Each of the Johnson boys has his own God-like power; it’s just that their powers aren’t all that powerful. The Johnsons are typical Kiwi blokes who don’t much like to stand out from the crowd. And everyday gods have everyday struggles – striving to love stroppy women, overcoming sibling rivalry and fulfilling your God-like destiny, all while still finding the time to enjoy a few beers with your mates.

Special Features

  • Interviews with James Griffin (Co-Creator) and Simon Bennett (Producer)
  • Audio Commentary With Cast & Crew
  • Gods Gallery

User reviews for the series

“I came across this program by accident and what a find it was. I had been watching No Ordinary Family at the time and when I saw the synopsis of what this was about I thought it would be similar. Boy I was wrong. This is more true to life , out with the main subject matter, than most things on TV. There is swearing, but no more than in normal life, nudity, the same and plenty of adult humour. You could also say informative as it does educate about Norse gods. It's difficult to say much more without spoilers but I'll try to say briefly what it's about. There are people living in NZ who are the basically the Norse gods. They currently don't have all their godlike powers and so begin a quest to regain them. If you liked Heroes, No Ordinary Family and especially Misfits then you'll most likely love this, baring in mind this is decidedly adult with swearing, nudity and drug taking.” braindeed, Scotland

“Other reviewers have compared it with several other shows – I think the most relevant comparisons are with Misfits and Northern Exposure. Don't expect a Heroes style epic adventure, the stories are on a smaller (more human) scale, but very engaging. The character development is nicely handled and by the end of the season I was really interested in all the characters – even the ones that annoyed me at first…the story gets better and better as it develops. I can't wait to see where they take it next season!” sorrelm, United Kingdom

“This is a fun show. Where did the Norse gods go? As far from Europe as possible, of course – New Zealand! The unlikely premise, and the typical NZ down-to-earth way of dealing with things are a great combination. This show is hard to classify – sometimes it's funny, sometimes it's dark, sometimes exciting, sometimes intriguing. Various mysteries pop up. Enemies become friends, and friends, enemies. Alliances are made & broken. Everyone has their own agenda. At the center of all this is Axl, the youngest Johnston brother, just turned 21, feckless, reckless, unassertive and a bit slow on the uptake. Which makes it at first hilarious, then very very interesting when he discovers that he's the greatest Norse god of them all. This is not a show you can watch 5 minutes or even 1 episode of & make a decision. It'll make no sense to you. You have to watch a few episodes, pick up the storyline & get to know the characters. Then it's worthwhile. If you like your shows formulaic & predictable, it's definitely not for you. But if you like a character-driven story line with the occasional laugh and supernatural thrill thrown in, it's great. The characters react very naturally, like normal people in an extraordinary situation. Love it.” routier, Australia
