Misfits

Is anyone loving this as much as I am?

Brilliant idea - a bunch of normal(ish) flawed kids - together with random other people - are just the right people to be getting less-than-perfect superpowers.

Well written and acted too. Great!

Re: Misfits

I watched the first episode but missed the second -- curses! -- which I hope to rectify soon. I enjoyed the first one, and the characters in it are rather engaging. The mouthy Irish one is a bit too mouthy at the moment, but I really liked the chav...sorry, the girl who's not a chav, don't keep calling her that. I cottoned onto the fact that their 'powers' were all to do with what they're 'socially' like, as it were before we had the little section that pointed this out (like the athlete rewinding the tapes of him).

Certainly looks to be an interesting programme. I rather liked how abrupt and unexplained (and styalised, with the slow-motion and the lightning) the 'event' thing was.

Re: Misfits

You must see the repeat of the 2nd one then - all out the journey of the mouthy Irish one. I may be a bit on the soppy side - but I cried -and it stayed comedic. I thought it was quite brilliant! You get to see more of the wish fulfilment stuff in others too.

Still think he's a pr*ck, though, and there's something about the one that can turn invisible that makes my skin crawl.

Re: Misfits

I just saw it and its really original,well written,well acted,great characters.

Much better than you expect from a series with teen leads.

You expect some lame Heroes,Skins wannabe....

I like how mature they handle the powers in a SF way in the series. What can be gained,what can be damaged with those powers. They haven't mastered them yet,not even close.

Re: Misfits

Finished it and I must conclude one of the best series I've seen in ages.

Good news is another series planned this year...

Re: Misfits

Join the club. It was a very surprising series for me too.

Finally it was a series that handles powers like that in SF way and not like some soap opera of a superhero series.

Re: Misfits

I'm a huge fan, infact i bought the box set of series 1 & 2 including the awesome xmas special.
I think it wipes the floor with the 'all to fancy' Heroes.

I loved the first series with Nathan thinking all the way through he had no power until he died in the last episode and was buried only to wake up in his coffin and find he was imortal

Series 2 Just got better and better with the introduction of more people with powers and the Simon from the future + the heart trasplant girl who inherated the teleporting power.

The xmas special was fantastic and really left me itching for series 3. Can't wait to find out what powers they get, if they go for their old powers back with the exception of Alisia who's power died with the Jesus guy, and Curtis who's power was sold to an old Jewish bloke who wanted to go back in time to kill Hitler.

Re: Misfits

Sorry, I'm on analogue pace with this on Channel 4. The first series was good; the second is fantastic. Direction, acting, music, all brilliant. And I'm loving the future-Simon.

Re: Misfits

I miss it! Anyone heard when it's coming back?

And I reckon they'll probably all have new powers - that seems to have been implied.

Re: Misfits

Without Nathan all the humor will be gone....

I just hope season 3 is not weak main storyline wise. They did change alot.
