Misfits TV series s01e06

MisfitsA review by Nalini Haynes

★★★★☆  four out of five stars

The finale of a very short season, Misfits takes the piss once again. This time, fundamentalist Christians are implicitly in the firing line with a pretty girl forcing conversion when people hear her speak.

Another probation officer has disappeared but only Simon knows what happened to her. An inquiry begins.

Rabidly conservative girls in high-necked dresses and cardigans single-buttoned under the bust-line, guys in shirts and pants with sweaters loosely knotted around their necks, relentlessly pursue innocent vandals and Misfits alike, hooding and dragging them off to a sinister ceremony…

The chase scenes are set to dramatic orchestral music but could easily be dubbed with Benny Hill music for added affect.

A masked man saves Nathan. A heroic masked man has been the only element missing from this season of comic book-style spoofs.

Misfits has been more fun the second time around. I highly recommend this subversive comic book-style TV series with no real heroes, only a bunch of young adults getting by, trying to work off their sentences with community work while trying to hide their superpowers.
