An ASBO a day keeps reality away - Brilliant,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Misfits: Series 2 [DVD] (DVD)
For me, this is the most exciting, if at times disturbing, new drama series on TV for years ! Fantasy meets gritty, urban 'reality' head-on. The 5 young ASBO gang members with strange powers are thrown headlong into ever more dangerous and crazy situations after the freak electrical storm we witnessed in Series 1. Robert Sheehan is brilliant as cocky irish kid Nathan, making us chuckle and squirm; Nathan Stewart-Jarrett is lean and fit as disgraced athlete Curtis.....like the rest of their gang, they barely understand what's happening to them, making it a wild rollercoaster ride for the audience too. It's hard to know quite where the story could go after this, but I had a lot of fun, on several levels...a bit of lust, a whole lot of tension and just as much outrage. This is inventive, gripping drama - but not for the faint-hearted ! How can I get Curtis round to 'discuss his future' ?
