MISFITS: Who watches this?

So I started watching this on Hulu and I honestly don't know wtf to make of it. It's like one of those shows that I will never understand. Like the Tomorrow people rofl.

Anyway before I got to episode 4 of this is it worth my time? Let me know.

I still watch it. It's in it's third season I think. Have you ever seen a show called Luther? It's also a British show. The first season of that I thought was really great and the brits do shorter seasons so it's not such a huge investment.

I will look into it then. Since you still watch it I'll keep going, but I am going to pace myself, the first few episodes were kind of needlessly raunchy. The old lady had and the screwing... just eeewww.

Yeah, British TV doesn't really do network-style shows, mainly just your HBO type stuff, so more raunchy, etc, of course. Misfits it's fun, but it's not The Wire or anything. I still watch it every week. Just for the fun. Luther, too, is fun. If I were you, though, I'd be watching an amazing American show called Breaking Bad.

I'd be surprised if he hadn't already seen Breaking Bad.

That's the first I've ever heard of that show. What makes it a good watch?

It's set in a legal office during a massive class action law suit. The action really transpires around the two central characters. A Machiavellian, crusading lawyer who will do anything to get what she want and her young new apprentice. The main characters are played by Glenn Close and Rose Byrne. The first series is one of the best shows I've ever seen. It's been described as The Sopranos in a legal office. Watch the first episode, you'll get a real feel for whether it's for you or not. It's critically acclaimed.

I really like Misfits. It's a good take on superhero shows, and I enjoy it. It's a generic good vs bad show but disguised behind the fact that they 'good' are barely that, and the powers are all weird and different. No super strength or super speed in sight. And it's genuinely funny, especially since Nathan in Season 1 & 2 and Rudy in Season 3 are just great characters. I hope Nathan comes back for Season 4, I'm expecting he does. Storyline-wise he's only been taken out for a few months.

One of the only new series on TV I just can't miss. Other than that, fuck all else on. I recommend people watch it for sure.

Season finale for Season 3 is on Sunday. No way am I missing that, trailer looks great. Misfits can do funny, but the serious bits are done excellently too.

Yeah that cat who plays Nathan is pretty funny guy. The cast mesh very well and it was that reason why i kept watching it. I'm on season 2 now and it's getting better. Weird.

I love this show. That chick Kelly has an accent I can't understand most of the time. They really use the shit out of the cast and their locations. Good shit.

3rd season I don't like so much. Rudy is kind of lame. Bring back the other dude who talked a bunch of shit. Glad the series is short.

Nathan's actor, like so many naive Brits, thought he could make it big in the movies off the back of Misfits. Needless to say how that turned out.

Well the girl that plays Alicia won't be coming back for season 4, but in her regard her storyline wrapped up in season 3, no way they can possibly bring her back. I'm done though with this show, it was fun for the first 2 seasons no doubt, and I gained a new respect for the English (British) language.
