5.0 out of 5 stars Unforgettable and excellent, 7 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Misfits - Series 1-3 [DVD] (DVD)
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.
