Review by Nadine on 27th September, 2011
 
"Modern youths meet sci fi and deal with it their unique way!"

Following on from the first series, the story is just as crazy and the characters just as obnoxious, but what a laugh! I was hooked on the first series from the get go and haven't been disappointed with this one, in fact, a few episodes, have seen me with tears of laughter rolling down my face! This series is not for the faint hearted though, lots of swearing, violence, and as stated, thoroughly obnoxious characters who you can't help but like. If you like things from left field give this series a go.

One of the best TV series I've seen. Definitely worth owning on DVD.

5 stars "These guys just get better.So much fun."

Five wild teens but lock on pd wind up with supa powers. Only one has any idea how to handle it and I can't think of a worse group of super hero's but the strife they cause is just an absolute buzz. Its very much adult entertainment. bring on no 3.

5 stars "By far the BEST"

This is by far the best of all the three seasons of Misfits, all the beloved characters are here killing more people (mostly on accident) and more really crazy plot twists and other characters with new powers
Another brilliant purchase.

Description

Following a sensational debut, the critically-acclaimed, Bafta-winning series returns, and the young superheroes are still spreading chaos wherever they go.

The second series of Misfits kicks off where the first ended, with the gang still on community service and still trying to adapt to their new lives. So here’s where we left them: Nathan’s just found out he’s immortal – but he’s in a coffin six feet under; Kelly’s mourning Nathan’s death; Curtis and Alisha still can’t touch each other due to Alisha’s magnetic, sexually charged super power and Simon’s hiding their probation worker’s body in a freezer. But what’s new is the mysterious, masked figure watching over them from afar… someone who looks remarkably like a real-life superhero and who seems to know everything about them…

“…Misfits is awesomely, fantastically, wonderfully brilliant.” – The Listener Winner Best Drama Series, Bafta 2010

Review for first season
By moviemuser.co.uk

"Teenagers With Superpowers! It’s hardly the most original concept in the history of television…Brace yourself for a shock though, because Misfits is actually good. Really good.

The series follows the adventures of five ne’er-do-wells, all convicted of minor misdemeanors and sentenced to that most unpleasant of punishments, community service. Things go even more to hell when they are caught outside in a freak electrical storm and after getting laid out by a bolt of lightning awake to discover that they’ve been infused with a selection of (not always that convenient) superhuman abilities.

So far, so Smallville right? Not so. Really exceptional writing catapults this series beyond the usual fare. Basing the show around kids who the tabloid press would have us believe are ’yobs’ or ’scum’ gives the series an excellent sense of twisted morality. The powers bestowed on each character are representative of each character’s per­sonality defect or life crisis and Overman skillfully weaves the story so that the gaining of the abilities doesn’t raise the status of the characters. They are still a bunch of weirdoes, chavs and smart-alecs and so retain that streak of humanity that makes them endearing to the audience.

An exceptional cast also helps. Much has been made of the charismatic Robert Sheehan as Nathan, the fast talking middle-class rebel with a heart of gold, but my attention was particularly diverted by the excellent Lauren Socha as queen chav Kelly and the frankly mesmerising Iwan Rehon as the social pariah Simon. All five actors add a diverse humanity to proceedings, which is a refreshing change from many series where a group of catalogue models appear to have replaced the actors.

If there are criticisms to be made then it is that the show does occasionally fall into a teen stereotype cliché trap or two. The romance between two of the main characters is sometimes unconvincing, even though it serves as a good metaphor for the teenage struggle with sexuality. I also disagree with some of the plot choices in the season finale, where some of the story arcs were somewhat swept under the rug. These are minor gripes however, and they leave plenty of scope to be dealt with in a second season.

British drama is going through something of a barren spell of late, with the main networks relying as heavily on costume dramas and detective shows as they always have. It is encouraging then, to see a show like this not only being made, but being made this well and I hope for and look forward to a second season with more of the same.

Overall Verdict: An excellent debut series. Witty, well paced and well performed. More please."
