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platform is quickly becoming outdated, and a BluRay set would have been more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.
A brilliant show from NZ, that could possibly even rival Outrageous Fortune.
Original storyline, with great actors and some really funny parts. Highly
Love it – can't wait for season 2!
I found this series refreshingly different, I loved it! Great characters
and interesting storylines. Very much looking forward to series 2!
I found this to be very entertaining and I am looking forward to the next
season. Thank you :)
The Almighty Johnsons blew away all my expectations. I loved every second
and can't wait for the new series!
What I really like about this series (other then the smorgasbord of hotness)
is the quality kiwi writing. The storyline is packed with kiwi relevance about
mythical yet flawed characters.
When the Almighty Johnsons was first on TV I found (like many others) that
it took a few episodes before I got really into it. Not so rewatching it on
DVDs. Those thinking about buying shouldn't worry about wasting money on
episodes that aren't brilliant – because they certainly are as good as all
the others rewatching them.
Another great New Zealand tv series. I still miss Outrageous Fortue, but
I thing I have found my repalcement. Go girls is good but I think this show
is better. Bring on season 2
Who would have thought New Zealand could not make a great science fiction
story AND have the sense to renew it for a second season- It is a gentle science
fiction, like the humour, never dominating the story. Just the initiator for the
plot; a place for the characters to play. And a great range of characters there
are.The yuppie and the hippy mystic, the young adventurer and the god just
trying to be normal. The female characters have been a bit thin but as there is
more time I think they will improve.
Fantastic New Zealand Television
I was hooked after the first episode. Well written, well acted a great
balance of humour and adult themed entertainment with a bit of Kiwiania thrown
This is a series that needs support to keep going. That's why I ordered
Being able to watch the show without the ads was wonderful – great to be
able to follow the story in one go.
Oddly addictive, I was hooked after the first couple of episodes. Think
outrageous fortune, take away the criminals, and replace them with gods. Hot
gods. Drool worthy gods even!!! Its like magic with the raunchyness of
outrageous fortune thrown in. Definitely worth the wait to watch, and I will be
first on the list to buy the second season too!!!
Grade A NZ TV garbage up there with shortland street,just hope it does'nt
last as long,ps its got that energy spot idiot who mimes every thing out with
his hands.He makes me want to smash my tv
