Emmett Skilton and Tim Balme of the Almighty Johnsons talk to Nalini Haynes of Dark Matter

Almighty Johnsons

On 1 August 2012 I posted this:

This morning I interviewed Emmett Skilton and Tim Balme from The Almighty Johnsons. The Almighty Johnsons is a Kiwi urban fantasy comedy TV series from New Zealand, currently with 4.5 stars (out of 5 stars) rating on AmazonUK.

The interview is available in MP3 (audio only) and MP4 (video) versions

I first heard of The Almighty Johnsons from Boxcutters, who are huge fans: John Richards says he’s even asked if he could write for them.  Boxcutters has featured the Almighty Johnsons twice: EP 288: THE LIGHT SIDE OF 2011 and EP 267: ALMIGHTY JOHNSONS, CHANNEL 9 ADVERTISING.  After hearing about the Almighty Johnsons a couple of times from a few different sources, I decided I must watch this series.  I searched online and found the production company’s storeselling season 1 late last year.  It arrived on a Friday.  On Saturday night about 9pm hubby and I sat down to start watching it.  We loved it so much we had to drag ourselves off to bed at 3am.  Even then, it was only exhaustion that prevented us from finishing the series that night.  We finished watching the entire series the next day.

I must confess I’ve been nearly as evangelical about the Almighty Johnsons as John Richards; Helen Lowe (award-winning Kiwi fantasy author) said she hadn’t really watched it – she’d only seen one episode – so I converted her!  Helen is now a fan.

Note:  In anticipation of the brand new website to be launched this week, I’m doing housekeeping.  This is why I’ve reposted this blog here, separately – it fits with the new improved format.  Cheers.
