New E4 show Misfits gets a big thumbs up from me… a definite one to watch & get into.
Who would of thought it would be possible to show just about every youth sub-culture possible in one programme?! the chav, the funny kid, the sporty one etc.
Very entertaining thats for sure.
What makes it funnier, is that two of the characters even have their own Twitter pages… just to make it more believable. Ha.
Read this if you need to be persuaded further:
“Misfits follows five outsiders on community service who get struck by a flash storm and lumbered with special powers.
Hard as nails Kelly (Lauren Socha) can suddenly hear people’s thoughts, shamed sporting hero Curtis (Nathan Stewart Jarrett) discovers he has the ability to turn back time when he regrets something, and party girl Alisha (Antonia Thomas) can send people into a sexual frenzy when they touch her skin. Even painfully shy Simon (Iwan Rheon) can make himself invisible when he feels he’s being ignored, which makes it all the more hard to swallow for smart aleck Nathan (Robert Sheehan), who seems to have been unaffected, much to his dismay.
Unlike their more conventional counterparts, our misfits don’t swap their ankle tags and mobile phones for capes and tights. Instead, they discover what a pain in the arse life can be when you’re stuck with a super power you didn’t want.”
Thursdays @ 10. E4.
