The Almighty Johnsons is one of my new favorite shows.

The Almighty JohnsonsThe Almighty Johnsons is one of my new favorite shows. The series is TV-MA so don’t go into it thinking it’s family friendly fare (although to be honest, so far the non-family friendly bits are just nudity, sex, and a bit of coarse language and I wouldn’t have a problem with my teens watching–it’s certainly better than them watching people getting chopped up at every turn a la The Walking Dead). Then again, the series is airing on Syfy too, I believe, and that version might (probably is) edited to be more family friendly so you can catch it there if you want.

What I like most about the show is the humor. I’ve watched the first three episodes and figure I’ll end up binge watching the rest because it’s just that irresistible. :D It’s laugh out loud funny in places and I love it.

Set in New Zealand, The Almighty Johnsons is a series about norse gods with very limited powers living among humans and Axl’s (Odin’s) quest to reunite with the goddess Frigg so they can regain their full powers and … well … not die. ;)

Can’t wait to see where this show goes.

Update! I finished out season one and I loved it. This is a great show. Seriously. If you haven’t tried it, I highly recommend you give it a shot.
