For anyone who missed it first time round CHannel 4 are reshowing it from 10pm next Saturday.


pretty crap scheduling, unworthy of a BAFTA winning show.


It's been on demand for awhile too; http://www.channel4.com/programmes/misfits/4od
Been meaning to check it out.

It's a bit of a Marmite series, I'm in the love it camp. In both regards.

I'm just getting antsy now for the second series, come ON folks! Seriously, how long are you holding out on this? It was supposed to be being aired in May and filming has only just started!

I was really surprised by this last Autumn.  I suppose I was expecting something a bit crap really but I was taken aback by how much I enjoyed it.  It's firmly in my guilty pleasure pile.

In regards to the second series it'd been my impression that they were filming in May for airing starting in November time (as per last year).  If it has been moved up the schedule consider me chuffed but I'm not holding out for anything.

I'm sure I'd heard/read somewhere that the filming of the second series was going to kick off fairly quickly and that it would be back on our screens by May. I must have got the wrong end of the stick.

The viral stuff has been really quiet for a while though. That was half the fun!

I thought filming was complete? But like FUnky, I'd gotten the impression that they were so suprised by it's success it was moving up the schedule.

The only solidish news seems to be the release date for the DVD is the 1st of January next year.

I watched a bit of this last week on CHANNEL 4. hmmm... I can't see what all the fuss is about. just looks like an excuse to create a series in which teenagers swear and talk about sex... well, SHAGGING. I'll bet this rubbish probably appeals to fans of SKINS. And that chav girl with the dirty make-up - urrrgggh! she needs a wash.

I disagree Sanke-Eyes. I can't stand Skins but I bloody love Misfits. Not for the swearing & shagging etc. but it's quite a good story and some of the banter (Nathan) is top class. Very funny in places.

Excellent show that has real heart - completely unlike Skins.

I disagree on SKins completely - awful show and the reason I almost didn't catch Misfits because it looked no different. But as someone who dislikes one and really likes the other, I'm not seeing the link other than youth, sex and language - and that description covers a world of range of quality.

Maybe try another epi Snake, to see if it improves on you?

I didn't realise she'd also been in Samantha Morton's directorial debut The Unloved; she was nominated for Best Supporting Actress at the BAFTAs: http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/tv/news/a219069/bafta-tv-awards-2010-the-nominees.html

I didn't see it so I can't comment on the performance.  Anyone else?

I thought the performances in it were fine (although I'd completely missed her nomination in the list - I forgot her real name!).

I've never watched Skins so can't compare at all. What I WILL say for Misfits is that it has some of the wittiest, driest writing out there. Each character has a fantastic backstory that has only just been touched on in the first series, it really is extremely good and well worth sticking with.

Absolutely

SNake - the first epi was really just a sketch of who the characters were with each one expanded over the rest of the series, given an episode each. Maybe roughing out the sketch might help improve your opinion?

I've only just started watching the first series of this and I'm already hooked. I know quite a few people who have rubbished it too be honest but I think it's another fine little offer from C4.

I finished this tonight and I also have never watched 'Skins' but have loved the first six episodes of this. At first it seems a bit daft but some great leading performances, especially Nathan, and some crude but funny writing steer the show in a neat direction and it doesn't try to outdo itself, it's a neat little effort, nothing spectacular, but still nontheless very entertaining.

The final episode starts out a bit like something out of Doctor Who but the ending is fantastic and I can't wait for the second series.

Started watching this last week? I'll stick with it. It's only six episodes. So far it's better than I thought it would be. Though I don't think it's bafta worthy. I like the concept and I've been interested to see where it goes.

I've enjoyed the first and third episodes probaly the most. Though there have been elements in the other episodes I've enjoyed they did drag on a bit for me. Especially episode four. It's the super power that breaks all and it's a risky idea putting it in the show. I would have prefered if the character had a similar but less powerful power.

I like the rag tag bunch enough to keep going. Including the "prick". He's an idiot and it works well enough. One of my favourite lines already quoted is.

Back Thurs 11th Nov. Trailer is very reassuring - captures the humour, and those fantastic visuals.

Will E4 be replaying the 1st series before showing the 2nd? I never watched it and it looks pretty cool...
