Another show to watch – “Misfits”

Apart from the IT Crowd and a couple others, there are very few UK shows that catch my eye.

However, the new “Misfits” series is right up my alley.

[via: e4.com/Misfits]

Misfits follows five outsiders on community service who get struck by a flash storm and lumbered with special powers.

Misfits

Hard as nails Kelly (Lauren Socha) can suddenly hear people’s thoughts, shamed sporting hero Curtis (Nathan Stewart Jarrett) discovers he has the ability to turn back time when he regrets something, and party girl Alisha (Antonia Thomas) can send people into a sexual frenzy when they touch her skin. Even painfully shy Simon (Iwan Rheon) can make himself invisible when he feels he’s being ignored, which makes it all the more hard to swallow for smart aleck Nathan (Robert Sheehan), who seems to have been unaffected, much to his dismay.

Unlike their more conventional counterparts, our misfits don’t swap their ankle tags and mobile phones for capes and tights. Instead, they discover what a pain in the arse life can be when you’re stuck with a super power you didn’t want.

I just saw the pilot episode and it was pretty darn good !

Worth checking out y’all !
