Boxset Tuesday: Ragnarok (season one) (Netflix)

In the UK: Available on Netflix

It’s usually right-wing European ideologies that hark back to their historic, home-grown paganism in order to foment nationalism. Greece’s Golden Dawn used to be fervent proponents of worshipping the gods of Olympus, while you only have to look at Der Pass to see how Woden and Krampus are being used in Austria and Germany for similarly unpleasant ends.

Which makes Ragnarok‘s new youth-oriented Norwegian original an interesting exception to the rule, being a left-wing call for the youth of Norway to channel the viking gods and protect the environment from capitalists.

Ragnarok

Very Thor

The show sees David Stakston playing Magne, a young dyslexic, not especially bright man who moves with his mum back to their home town, Edda, in the remote wilds of West Norway. The last place to be Christianised in Norway, it’s now the home of Jutul industry and its super-rich family of Jutuls, who also run the school and most of the companies in Edda.

But when Magne shows kindness to an old, one-eyed man, he suddenly finds himself a changed man. He no longer needs glasses, he can run faster than the world’s best athletes, he can smell different kinds of blood, he’s nearly indestructible – and boy, can he throw a hammer.

How will Magne use his new abilities? And are the Jutuls quite what they seem?

What time, TMINE? Including Le Bazar de la Charité, Doom Patrol, Ragnarok, Instinto, AJ And The Queen, V Wars, Himmelsdalen and The Rook

Every Friday, TMINE lets you know when the latest TV shows from around the world will air in the UK

What a busy week! So many acquisitions, so many premiere dates, mostly thanks to StarzPlay, so about five of you are going to be able to watch them.

All the same, after the jump, all the deets about Le Bazar de la Charité, Doom Patrol, Ragnarok, AJ And The Queen, V Wars and Himmelsdalen.

But a quiet word about Starz (US)’s The Rook, first. Remember how I said it was going to be coming to StarzPlay in the UK on July 1? Turns out it didn’t and that was only on StarzPlay Arabia or something.

But it’s definitely going to be hitting StarzPlay UK on Thursday, November 28. Okay?
