Syfy has scored two bonafide hits over the past few years with its acquired scripted series, Lost Girl
and Continuum. It was also great that they acquired and aired Primeval: New World
even though it was a one-season series, along with similarly-situated Sinbad.
Now Syfy has added another series to its list of acquireds, with the New Zealand series The Almighty Johnsons
, about four modern-day brothers who have inherited the powers of Norse gods. It’s said to be a “compelling blend of fantasy and comedy” and “quirky”. I love ”quirky” but I reserve judgment as to whether or not this will qualify until I see it. I’ll definitely check them it out, but don’t we all kinda wish they could change the name?
Hang on, he’s in The Hobbit! The one on the left, that’s Dean O’Gorman, he’s Fili, one of the good looking dwarves!
