Syfy Discovers The Almighty Johnsons
This morning on the Crag & Al Morning Show Craig mentioned that Syfy has picked up the first two seasons of a Drama/Comedy/ Fantasy titled “The Almighty Johnsons.” The show follows a student named Axl Johnson, who on his 21st birthday discovers his family members are reincarnated Norse gods. The problem is, they don’t have full control of their powers and it is up to Axl (the reincarnation of Odin) to restore them and ensure the family’s survival by finding the reincarnation of Odin’s wife, Frigg. Matters are complicated by the presence of three Norse goddesses who are trying to find Frigg before the Johnsons do to prevent the restoration of the gods’ powers (which would vault them above the goddesses), as well as an antagonistic reincarnation of Norse god Loki, and the appearance of a Māori deity pantheon toward the end of second series. The series originated in New Zealand and is ready to start its third season. Initially the show was available only “down under.” Craig and I went looking to get a sense of what the show is like. We found lots of examples. Be warned, the clip I selected has some language and nudity. Nothing terribly bad though.
