A nifty Almighty Johnsons poster


Okay, it’s for the second season so a bit old now and Battlestar Galactica got there first, but it’s still pretty nifty (click on it to make it bigger). The first season is being repeated on the UK’s SyFy channel from next Tuesday, so give it a try if you haven’t seen it already – Norse gods reincarnated in New Zealand so what’s not to like? – but you’ll need to wait about four or five episodes before it gets really good. No word on a third season yet, I’m afraid.
