So, kiwis: The Almighty Johnsons!

For people who haven't seen the ads: the premise is that the youngest of four brothers turns 21, and discovers that his family are the incarnations of Norse gods, who when persecuted fled to Norsewood. Hijinks ensue!

It's definitely by the writers of Outrageous Fortune; you can tell by the sex (including gratuitous boob!) before the first ad break. I'm not in love with the characters yet, although they have promise. (Axl, though, had better get smarter and less self-centered VERY QUICKLY.)

It's got everything you need from an NZ tv show: a cast of actors who have been in everything, strong sense of place, and lots of slang which is very US.

The only downside was that once aliette_rowan pointed out that one of the brothers was the guy from the Energy Spot ads, that was all I could see. He looks pensive? Someone isn't using energy-friendly lightbulbs or turning off the lights when they leave the room? He's angry and worried? Someone's not buying energy-smart appliances!
