To celebrate the DVD release of the complete first season of The Almighty Johnsons on 9 April, we’re giving away a copy of the DVD to each of five lucky readers.
The Almighty Johnsons (which is a current fave of SFX editor-in-chief David Bradley) has recently been airing on Syfy here in the UK. If you haven’t seen it, you really out to give it a try. Part Buffy, part Misfits, it’s an acclaimed fantasy drama about four ordinary brothers in New Zealand who just happen to be descended from Norse Gods. The only problem is they don’t have full control of their powers, and it is up to 21-year-old Axl Johnson (the reincarnation of Odin, Father of the Gods) to restore them and ensure the family’s survival.
Packed with action, drama, raunchy comedy and larger-than-life fantasy, The Almighty Johnsons puts the Norse Gods right where they don’t want to be: in the bodies of a bunch of New Zealand lads with all the faults, flaws and desires of ordinary mortals.
Season One of The Almighty Johnsons is released on 9 April from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
