Misfits, one of E4’s (Channel 4’s hip channel) new flagship comedy shows, has opened to pretty good success and acclaim this week. Early reckoning shows that the show drew in about 0.5 million viewers which ain’t half bad!
It’s about 5 chaps and chapettes who for some reason are struck by lightning and become endowed with super powers. Uh-huh. So, kinda like Heroes, a bit. We have a time-traveller and a mind-reader amongst others – which is all good. Actually, it’s pretty good yunno – it’s funny in all the right places, doesn’t take cheap swipes at the superhero genre and actually is very entertaining. Just one thing I would mention is that it’s definitely not for young uns – hence the 10pm post-watershed billing.
Yeah – looking forward to seeing more! To view a preview of next week’s show, check out the following movie clip:
