Very Enjoyable .

This show is hard to classify - sometimes it's funny, sometimes it's dark, sometimes exciting, sometimes intriguing.

The overall premise is pretty good but the overacting and the slow plot is unbearable!

Entertaining drama, fun/random context, full of alcoholic characters .

The plot is full of unexpected moments and twists and turns, something that is difficult to find in today's corporate TV land.

The show is silly but entertaining as they pursue finding this goddess.

I was delighted to see the Kiwi's present such an enjoyable program and it gives others a look into some of their cultural uniqueness ...

It's enjoyable, fun, serious, romantics don't truly exist since Axl's to idiotic to understand the concept and it's believable, slightly...

It's a breath of fresh air to see something so enjoyable culminate from all of the above (and not forced CGI).

The story line is sloppy, slow and not accurate if Norse mythology is the underlying story!

Overall, I enjoyed it and now ....

A lot to be desired but entertaining nonetheless .

If you can get past the plot holes and overall drawn out story lines that go no where, and the annoying Axl, then it's an enjoyable, fun show to watch.

While the first episode is slow and the characters aren't very endearing that changes quickly.

The makers of this show have taken me on a fun and unexpected ride and I'll stick with them through as many episodes as they care to make.

Don't expect a Heroes style epic adventure, the stories are on a smaller (more human) scale, but very engaging.

The stories are creative and compelling and human; the actors play their parts really well.

It is a perfect blend of fantasy and reality and explores Norse mythology in a compelling way.
