I watched a couple episodes of this New Zealand import on Netflix last night. It was interesting, although the pacing seemed a bit slow.


For anyone who hasn't heard of it, the elevator pitch: a family of human, mortal hosts for the Norse pantheon. They have weak powers but when the main character incarnates as Odin, things start heating up. Apparently Odin's got to find Frigga and rekindle their romance, which will restore everyone's full godhood.

Apparently there was only a season or two; no idea if they resolved anything or not by the end of it — but it looks interesting enough to watch when nothing else is pressing. Definitely makes a nice change from American/British programming, if nothing else.
