The Almighty Johnsons is a new South Pacific Pictures comedy-drama series about four brothers, raised in heartland New Zealand, who also happen to be the living incarnations of Norse Gods. ... See full summary »
Minka is a teenage Polynesian boy living in the heart of the city. With his P-addicted mother well on the way to going completely off the rails, three people enter his life - each with a promise - each with the power to destroy.
This refreshing new comedy is superbly developed and written, with the expertise of Rachel Lang appearing as good as that of Richard Curtis or Justin Theroux. The cast consists of incredibly believable characters and true chemistry. Shane Cortese is a definite stand out, with his character incredibly likable and vastly different than the roles he has played in Shortland Street and Outrageous Fortune.
The rest of the cast, both starring and recurring are also very good, with the characters strong and well developed enough for the audience to understand and follow the story lines. The show overall is a definite winner and I hope to see it return for season two.
