Misfits, the brilliantly crude and many times poignant British show about several social rejects that come into special powers is back for Season 3. Having sold and then purchased new powers at the end of Season 2, it was fun to watch and see what their new powers were going to be. Aside from perhaps Simon and Alisha I’m not sure they are much better than their old ones. Although surely they will all prove to be quite entertaining.
It was great to catch up with the old gang, minus one of course. On that, Rudy, the Nathan replacement, was front and center. There was the chance they might try to make Rudy too much like Nathan. Which I believe would be a mistake. Even though half of him does have several Nathan like qualities, he does seem to be his own character(s). That being said, Joe Gilgun, did an excellent job at the new role even with some, no doubt, visually technical obstacles to contend with.
The first episode was very Rudy heavy, but presumable this was to get the audience up to speed with him. Hopefully this is not of trend of episodes to come. I cannot wait to see what troubles our band of ‘misfits’ get themselves into this season. It will no doubt prove to be hilarious, exciting and character building.
