Product Description

Who wants a superhero with an ASBO?

In Misfits, a gang of five teenage outsiders – party-girl Alisha, hard-as-nails Kelly, one-time sporting hero Curtis, painfully shy nerd Simon and smart-aleck Nathan – get caught in a flash storm while on Community Service and suddenly find themselves saddled with strange superpowers.

Unlike their more conventional counterparts, they don’t swap their mobile phones and ankle tags for capes and tights. Instead, they discover just how tough life can be when you’re all that stands between good and evil. Well, that and your curfew order….

5.0 out of 5 stars Even an oldie can love this series! 15 Jan 2010
By Bob Grist VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'm 43 years old. I've never watched an episode of Skins in my life. I'm probably not the intended audience for this series. However, I've always loved certain aspects of superhero/strange powers bequeathed to unexpecting individuals stories and I can say, hand on my heart, that this series seeped into my soul and I found myself loving it.

At first I wasn't sure if I'd hate this little band of troublesome teens but, as time went by and deep characterisation was revealed and an incredibly talented bunch of actors brought them to life, I found that I was endeared to them in the way that I am, say, with the cast of Trainspotting. In other words, I love watching their twisted exploits even if I'd never actually want to meet them in reality.

And the writing is very mature, very intelligent and very complex too. There are some wonderful plays on SF tropes, such as a character being able to shift backwards in time to try and right wrongs (to disastrous effect) and horror conventions, such as a the classic chased-by-maniacal-Zombie-esque figure storyline.

Howard Overman has bought us a series that transcends its seemingly obvious late-teen flavour and allows anyone who has an interest in the genres of horror and science fiction to appreciate and enjoy this very British and very quirky series. It's intense, creepy, scary, sexy, amusing and very unique.

This first series ends on a dark and highly amusing cliff-hanger and I'm so pleased that another one has been commissioned by E4, not surprising seeing the critical acclaim it has garnered from the press.

5.0 out of 5 stars MISFITS: 5 Unlikely Teenage Heros 15 Dec 2009
By Mr. William Oxley VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
This is a very original British comedy drama with great acting & writing to produce an unbeatable level of entertainment. Definitely on a par with Californication Californication - The First Season [2007] [DVD] for original comedy.

Misfits is about 5 teenagers who are doing community service, who are struck by a supernatural storm and develop superpowers - a cross between Heroes & Skins Skins - Series 1 - Complete [DVD] [2007]. But they are not conventional heroes battling evil, they are more likely to be trying to sort out their own personal issues.

There are just 7 episodes of about 45 minutes with each one focusing on a different charactor, and a finale climax. In each episode they are basically trying to keep out of trouble and cover up the secret that unites them all. I love Episode 4 where we discover why Kelly, Simon, Nathan , Curtis, & Alisha are on community service.

DVD extras include: Behind the scenes interviews with cast and crew, Simon's films, & The making of Misfits.

Pre-order it now, or catch it in 2010 on Channel 4. Either way do not miss out on the hotest comedy drama series in an ordinary town with extraordinary charactors!

Series 2 has been commissioned with 6 episodes of 60 minutes. Let's hope with another BAFTA winning series.

I watched this when it first came out on E4 and I was pleasantly surprised at just how much I loved it. The writing is superb and witty, the characters are all intruiging and well developed, and the plots are gripping. This show definately has some of the UK's finest young actors in it, and it's always entertaining. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for the teens 20 July 2010
Format:DVD
I'm in my fifties and sat and watched this with my twenty year old son on my thirty year old son's recommendation. Well, I laughed, I squirmed and I felt for the misfortunate characters. This is a very good series, very funny and poignant. Excellent writing, beautifully delivered. Yes, there is swearing and nudity but that's life, get over it or stay away from this.

Bought as part of a box set, I suddenly wondered from the type of characters portrayed and their language and attitude whether I could really stick this, but I am so glad I did.

An incredibly insightful series into the youth it represents, and in clever storytelling, direction, music and acting. The characters could not be more polar-opposites.

As a viewer who has just entered the fourth decade, perhaps I am not the intended audience, but I love science fiction, and to me this series is more sci-fi than comedy.

Very original and engaging and I have to say that I prefer this to Heroes for getting on with the story immediately, and playing with "superpowers" in quite a bizarre way.

Not a pleasant series, and plenty of unpleasant themes, but absolutely first rate observation of aspects of human life seldom represented on television.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Brilliant 31 May 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
After all the American TV shows of a similar genre - super powers, supernatural, strange phenomena, its great to see a British show which is so so good. I had seen a write up that Misfits was a BAFTA nominee...and thought I'd give it a go. My wife and I love the show and have watched both Series 1 and 2 in the last two weeks. The writing is excellent, the actors are great. Teenage misfits...ASBOs....humour, teenage behaviour, friendship, story lines that reel you in and make you want more...do yourself a favour and watch this. You will not regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun but forgive Naff special effects 16 Feb 2010
By Bill
Format:DVD
Most of the other reviews have covered what an original program this is.
Starting from an unlikely oddball collection of misfits one develops a strong attachment to their escapades.
The special effects eg "storm clouds" leave a lot to be desired - a bit like early Dr Who & the DALEKS but this does not spoil the fun.
The DVD runs at about twice the bit rate of Freeview "E4", does not have 15 minutes of adverts per hour, or the enormous E4 channel logo - so well worth the money for the better picture quality.
