Almighty Johnsons cancelled
« on: 09 September, 2012, 08:26:44 PM »
Hi all

Posting this as I understand the series was picked up by UK TV (and in Australia too?) A sad and very frustrating day for NZ genre TV, already a very small player in a tough market.

That's a bummer. I really enjoyed this, even if it was obvious his flatmate was destined to be his missus.

I managed to get halfway through episode three before I lost hope, so being cancelled has saved me some invested time in this series!

What? You missed out on seeing Thor? He was the best bit!

Heh. He had a rubbish hammer though. Used to great comedy effect, to be fair.

True. I still wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of it!  :lol:

Never heard of it before. Might have to look into it.

Last NZ show I watched was the Prisoner-esque This Is Not My Life.
Bloop.
