All eight episodes from the third series of the E4 comedy drama following a gang of teenage outsiders who find themselves saddled with superpowers after getting caught up in a storm. In this series the established delinquents - Simon (Iwan Rheon), Kelly (Lauren Socha), Alisha (Antonia Thomas) and Curtis (Nathan Stewart-Jarrett) - befriend a new young offender who has joined their community service programme, Rudy (Joseph Gilgun). As Rudy tries to adapt to the demands of life at the community centre - not to mention the often strange behaviour of his new friends - the others find themselves trading superpowers, trying to combat a zombie outbreak and dealing with other supernatural occurrences.

The new series starts off with the group each having new powers as a result of trading them for others. This is a good method for the writers to add fresh impetus into the series by exploring new angles. With Episode 1 focusing on Rudy, I really enjoyed Episode 2 with Curtis heading back to the running track and getting himself into quite a mix up.
Whilst I still love the original content of the episodes and the variety of insane characters, I have to agree that the series definitely misses the comedy value provided by Nathan in series 1 and 2. The show has changed subtly from a crazy funny original British show to a crazy and original British show with moments of comedy action. Good but no longer great.
Nathan's replacement is Rudy (played by the brilliant Joseph Gilgun of 'This Is England' and 'Emmerdale' fame) who explodes onto the scene from the start. This is a character I took to immediately, although I can't imagine him being everybody's cup of tea. This guy is probably the most wonderfully crass member of the team yet, but despite his cockiness, he's actually very insecure.
All of the other original gang from the first two series reprise their roles, but the friends now have all new superpowers, resulting in depressed, former rising sports star Curtis being able to capture some of his glory days, but not without a major twist. By giving this dream team of great characters the ability to do other things was a masterstroke from the writers, and it keeps things fresh and interesting.
Simon continues his training to become Superhoodie, and with zombie-cheerleaders on the loose, he is going to be needed. Things certainly haven't become easier or quieter for our characters, who find themselves thrust back into community service, led by the cocky probation worker Shaun, once again.Read more ›
Anyway on to the 3rd series itself. Well it's still good if that's what your wondering. Better, in fact, than almost anything being broadcast these days on television. The big addition to this series is the new character, Rudy. Some people haven't exactly warmed to rudy but I personally think he's one of the greatest characters in tv history. He's funny, likeable and more complex than he initially seems. At first it's very hard to like him however. He's rude, a womanizer and only out for number one. But rudy isn't as simple as that. You see, he actually has two personalities, the second of which frequently leaves his body, usually just to inform him of what a loser he is. This is where the character of rudy really comes into his own. Seeing him talking to himself, you start to find out how little self esteem he really has for himself and how he hasn't exactly had the easiest of lives and you can't help feeling a little sorry for him.
The episodes themselves are great for the most part, especially the episode featuring a guy who can create the future by drawing it, the zombie episode and the final episode, which features a shocking and very sad finale.Read more ›
Sadly it seems Channel 4 are continuing their current trend of disappointing third series syndrome (Here's looking at you, Inbetweeners). If there was one bad point about series 2, it's that it was starting to dip into "Killer of the Week" territory and this seems to have continued in series 3. However whereas there was a strong overall story arc with Simon going back in time to save Alicia, it feels like this season has been compiled of standalone, one-off episodes and has been very disjointed. And despite everyone having new powers, the "Superhero" aspect seems to have taken a back seat to everyday drama such as relationships, STDs and getting drunk.
It does have some highlights though. The effects are great, as ever. Some of the new villains, such as "Coma Girl" and "Comic Book Nerd" have been very interesting and put a good spin on Misfits' general theme of "With great power comes irresponsibility." And despite perhaps being given a little too much gurning screen time, I actually prefer Rudy and his (literally) split personality make him a much more human character than Nathan ever was. Similarly Seth is a nice new inclusion and Kelly is given more time to shine with a great performance by Lauren Socha. Likewise the gang's probation worker is comedy gold every time he appears on screen.
But for all the great moments, there seems to be twice as many mediocre ones.Read more ›

Love Misfits and series 3 for me with the original gang is where it ends, recommend series 1,2 and 3 for those who have never watched it, you won't be disappointed! Read morePublished 17 months ago by K Bunting
It's not the same without Nathan. He was my favorite. His substitute is annoying and kind of old for this crowd. The first two seasons were brilliant, It's a shame.Published 17 months ago by Marina
