Great Odin’s raven! The Almighty Johnsons takes the ratings baton

A trouble-making family from West Auckland with a penchant for dodgy dealings, swearing, booze and shagging is a solid premise for a TV show. And Outrageous Fortune certainly delivered the goods for TV3 during its six year run. A family with supernatural powers who are descended from Norse Gods is a slightly stranger concept. But that’s what TV3’s new local drama The Almighty Johnsons is all about and, while it will undoubtedly be difficult to fill the entertaining boganic void left by the departure of the Wests, ratings for the first episode of the replacement were promising.
