If you ever were a fan of the superheroes and villains this would be a great thing for you. This is honestly some of the best portrayals of the minds of ordinary people who're suddenly faced with the responsibility of all kinds of powers.

Enjoyable and completely out of left field. Probably not good viewing if you work in the probation service.

A group of community service participants in the wrong place at the wrong time. Outside a community centre when a storm hits, hit by lightning, all develop strange powers. The main characters should be wholly unsympathetic yet almost from the outset you find yourself liking them, caring about what happens to them and fascinated to see how their powers developed. Even the character who is a total jerk somhow gets under your skin.

Interesting plotting plays with traditional sci-fi ideas such as the Grandfather paradox, I really enjoy the way that the original powers of the characters mirror or enhance their normal everyday personalities. The shy quiet one who is ignored by many suddenly has the ability to become invisible, a beautiful girl already used to using her looks to get her own way is suddenly irresistable if touched. (More a punishment than a blessing).

Genuinely good and interesting, no series 4 which has just aired, but with an almost total cast change by this stage I wonder if this set doesn't represent the best of Misfits.

When this first came out it was quoted as "The British version of Heroes", well it wasn't. What i liked about this was they have powers but they're not going about being superheroes, each episode is about other people who have powers and discovering more about the misfits background story. Season two gets better as they learn more about their powers but with Nathan (Robert Sheehan) leaving not before he did a webisode called 'Vegas Baby!', he took most of the witty shocking comedy with him. Not to worry as he's replaced by new character Rudy not as funny and with a crap power season 3 went a bit down hill (was still good).
With sex,on the edge of your seat comic lines, heres hoping for all the usual Bu-Ray stuff as well as the webisode.

Watched this series on TV but just had to see the whole thing again to pick up on subtle sub-plots and to enjoy once more the inspired performances of the main players. As always, Amazon came up with the goods promptly and at a very good price.

I had watched the series when it was originally broadcast, loved it so I was pleased to have had the chance to watch the all 3 series again. Would recommend this to anyone who enjoyed the series, or just to watch something different.

Loved this - excellent characters and lots of humour as well. Would suggest you watch no further though - series four is completely different, lost some of the more interesting characters, the replacements not being worth watching, and the script has taken a nose dive and the plots (if there is one) abysmal

A good product - as seen on TV so no surprises and possibly not the best series ever but a good watch nevertheless. I will keep and probably watch a few times.
Not for those who do not appreciate crude talk and sexual interpretations or bad language. Certainly easy watching and has a few lol moments
