The Almighty Johnsons

Anyone going to check this show out?

http://www.syfy.com/thealmightyjohnsons

Looks like it might be a good Warehouse 13 replacement.

I might give it a shot, but from looking at that I'm not sure how it will go.

Based on the description, I'd say this one looks like a total FAIL waiting to happen.

Quote:
The action-packed comedy drama The Almighty Johnsons follows the Johnson boys, four typical fun-loving guys – who have inherited the power of Norse Gods. But these four brothers are no flashy superheroes. Everyday Gods have everyday struggles – searching for love, overcoming sibling rivalry and fulfilling their God-like destiny – while still enjoying a few beers with their friends.

I've seen the first two seasons. It's extremely low-budget, even by Syfy standards, but a lot of fun. (It's a New Zealand series that ran for three seasons; I haven't gotten around to watching the third yet, but they're all available through Magic.)

There are some nifty in-jokes when one of the cast disappears in Season 2 (to make The Hobbit).

So, is this an import or a US remake?

I watched it as it aired in New Zealand. It's a fun show; there were perhaps two times over its run where it got a bit uninteresting and seemed like it wasn't going anywhere for a bit but it picked up the pace after an episode or two and overall was a fun show to watch. I was glad to see it would air in the US. If only more Australia/New Zealand series got that treatment...

I didn't realize it was an import. Thanks for the heads up, might check it out early.

They did show his butt. Or were you referring to a different character?

Butts & boobies in NZ version, in the first several eps. This show is a great summertime filler.

Thanks for the heads-up on the source... downloading all 3 seasons now.

As markp99 mentioned, there were more butts and some breasts.

The avoided the issue with cuts and zooming in the frame.

Ah - butts and boobies. Thanks for the clarification.

I also noticed a lot of curse words being silenced. I assume those are also not censored in the NZ versions available via Magic?

Correct, no censoring for language.

Cool - maybe I'll just cancel the SP and get the unsanitized versions elsewhere.

That's what I did, all 3 seasons - they are all sitting on my TiVo now. Supports my binge-view habit - plus, the commercials are all trimmed out.

fyi, Season Two begins airing on SyFy latenight tonight (for anyone still tethered to cable). Guide listings show it as a repeat because it is an old series being imported, but it's new for this audience.

I started watching this sporadically and have been enjoying it. I may see if I can find it uncut/uncensored somewhere and try to watch it through from the beginning.

Oh, and cute butts are welcome on my screen. I guess SyFy still censors those?

I grabbed the original NZ version from TVTorrents; sadly, not an option at the moment.

The series was a fun binge watch for me.
