MISFITS (2009 – 2013)

Misfits

Creator: Howard Overman

Cast: Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, Joseph Gilgun, Iwan Rheon

Nathan (Robert Sheehan), Curtis (Nathan Steward-Jarrett), Kelly (Lauren Socha), Alisha (Antonia Thomas) and Simon (Iwan Rheon) are young delinquents who are currently on probation. They were doing community service when a storm hits so did lighting right on them. As they came to they beginning to understand that they have new abilities: Curtis is capable of turning back time. Kelly is able to read peoples’ minds. Alisha is able to make anyone desperately desire her with nothing more than a touch. Simon can turn invisible. And Nathan…well, Nathan hasn’t figured out what his ability is yet, but he’s certain his power will turn up sooner or later.

I was not crazy about that one until I saw a few episode then I started going to myself okay I like it and watched more episodes. You see what is funny is the powers that they got are a burden and not that useful after all. Alisha’s power basically ensures that any man who touches her will attempt to rape her, . Curtis’ ability to turn back time occasionally makes things even messier. Kelly’s mind-reading abilities have a way of leaving her perpetually pissed-off, as she’s required to listen to one brainless guy after another think about bedding her. These abilities are messed up, fun and miserable all at once. All five actors are going well with each other the chemistry is there, Robert Sheehan’s character “Nathan”to be really irritating but you get use to it later and it is part of his character. But the show does not deliver at season 3-4 the first 2 season were awesome. Some people might like the last 2 seasons some not. But it is wot-rth a look.
